Message of Women Empowerment
Hamdard’s Safi is famous for purifying the blood, detoxifying from deep within and bringing out natural shine and radiance in the outer layers of the skin. With their new TVC, promoted across TV, Radio, and social media platforms, Hamdard sends out a strong message of women empowerment, urging them to cherish their bodily health and detoxify to eliminate toxins and shine as their best selves.
Revolving around three women, the new Safi TVC explores the lives and hassles of modern-day women and encourages them to go the extra mile in pursuit of their passions. The new TVC does a splendid job of breaking stereotypical portrayals of women and portrays their struggles of adapting to novel professions and combatting all challenges in their lives.
It shows one woman focused on car restoration work, while another is penetrating the male-dominated realm of football, making her country proud in the global arena. The TVC also shows a woman as an entrepreneur who runs her own catering business. The underlying message is to present Safi as a trustworthy product that helps women eliminate their beauty woes and shine with the confidence that comes from high self-esteem.
Face Banega Great
Hamdard also launched a similar campaign in India for its best-selling product Safi, in the form of a TV and digital media promotions, to spread the message, “Taste karoge hate, face banega great”.
The campaign is focused on opening up a conversation with the youth and millennials, urging them to get past the bitter taste of the products and realize the striking benefits that it has to offer. It urges them to adopt a more practical approach towards achieving their health and wellness goals and adapting to the bitter taste in order to obtain the benefits that Safi has to offer.
In this campaign, Hamdard touches upon the age of rebellion and focuses upon the word “hate” which is a common word in their vocabulary and offers a powerful lesson that the things we hate are actually beneficial for us. Throughout the recently released ‘Face banega great’ TVC, Hamdard sheds light on the drawbacks of hate, and fusing it with the idea of enduring the hate to enjoy the benefits of clear skin.
The TVC plays around with multiple scenarios of everyday life, daily depicting the routine of a modern woman attempting to carve out a harmonious balance. It shows us the mundane and hateful everyday tasks like waking up early in the morning to attend important meetings, hitting the gym after an exhausting day, working extra hours, attending boring lectures and so on.
