Dentsu India wins Synthite Group’s personal care venture
Dentsu India, the integrated full-service communication agency from Dentsu Aegis Network, has bagged the strategic and creative mandate for Vieda, a newly-launched personal care brand by The Synthite Group. The mandate was won following a multi-agency pitch. For the record, Synthite Group is a million-dollar corporation known to be the world’s largest value-added natural ingredient company.
Kicking off with bathing bars and hair oil products, the company will extend their product portfolio with shampoo and toothpaste in the months to come.
Launched in Kerala in phase one, company sources confirm that they would expand in the South Indian market in the second phase and will be available across the country soon. The innovative product developed for bath soap (one portion to care specially for the face and the other to cleanse the body) definitely looks at being the game-changer in the category. Their hair oil brand- Vieda Nuvo – will surely shake up the market what with specially curated oils sourced from nine different places – both within and beyond India. The other hair oil variant- Kachiya Enna- is a traditional recipe that rings in the indigenous touch.
Ashok Mani, MD & CEO- Intergrow Brands, a company of Synthite Group said, “At Synthite, we truly believe that everything revolves around the product, and that great brand communication will always entail the same in simple, yet most powerful ways. We don’t look for vendors or agencies but we look for partners who understand our language and share our dreams. At Dentsu, we see a lot of what we want from our partner. Their understanding of how the product intertwines with brand communication will definitely help in setting us apart from the rest as we start on this new journey to build one of the finest personal care brands in the country.”
Commenting on the win, Simi Sabhaney, CEO- Dentsu India said, “We are looking forward to creating effective work for this brand, which has been conceived and created on a wholesome philosophy.”
Vidya Sankar, Vice President- Dentsu India added, “We were completely overwhelmed by the product differentiation that Vieda had to offer. Dentsu will complement it by out-of-the-box creative and strategic direction that would surely up the game and shake the teeming category.”
