The Dove Difference
The Dove brand started its life in 1957 in the US, with the revolutionary new beauty cleansing Bar. With its patented blend of mild cleansers and ¼ moisturising cream, Dove’s iconic Beauty Bar rinses cleaner than soap, leaving skin clean, soft and smooth. It is #1 Dermatologist Recommended brand in the US, Canada and France and strongly endorsed by Dermatologists across the world.
Dove brand’s heritage is based on moisturisation – proof not promises grew Dove from a Beauty Bar into one of the world’s most beloved beauty brands. Today Dove offers a range of products: Body Washes, Hand and Body Lotions, Facial Cleansers, Deodorants, Shampoos, Conditioners and Hair Styling products, all developed on the universal premise of real care.
A compelling Social Mission
In a world in which girls are too often held back by low self-esteem and anxiety about their looks, Dove’s Social Mission is to help encourage girls to develop a positive relationship with beauty, helping to raise their self-esteem and thereby enabling them to realise their full potential.
Dove’s Self-Esteem Fund promotes the development of body confidence among girls. It provides tools and resources to build their self-esteem, using the support of their families and communities. Over 8.5 million young people have received our help since 2005, with over 1 million participating in the Dove Self Esteem Programme in 26 countries in 2011 alone. By 2015 we aim to have helped 15 million girls.
