DDB Mudra West has recently won the creative mandate for Margo soap following a multi-agency pitch. Neem and skin care have gone hand in hand for generations. If there’s one brand that is the very essence of Neem, that’s Margo Soap.
Margo Soap has revamped itself to appeal to the preferences and aspirations of India’s youth while retaining its core Neem benefits. Over the years, the brand has expanded its product range to include Margo Glycerine soap and Margo Face Wash offering a larger portfolio of Neem-based skin products.
MR Jyothy, Executive Director, Jyothy Laboratories, said, “The brief was to bring in a fresh perspective to communicate the core benefits of Neem leading to brand trials amongst non-users. DDB Mudra’s creative strategy appealed the most as it was a logical buildup to the last brand campaign. The creative routes were fresh and in sync with what we believe our TG will relate to. We hope that DDB Mudra’s talent pool and experience in diverse categories will help us meet our marketing goals.”
Rajiv Sabnis, President, DDB Mudra West, said, “Margo is the original Neem soap. The brand has some strong loyalists but we need to broad-base the loyal franchise to younger audiences and pan-India. The need is to make the power of Neem relevant to a larger set of young adults who know of the efficacy of Neem but haven’t experienced it yet through Margo. In a day and age when young people want to experience the world up close, Margo Soap is just the right partner to ensure that you are ready to face the world. The communication is true to this insight and should connect well with young Indians. We look forward to further building this brand with the team at Jyothy.”
