The Brief

Promote Simple from UK skin cleansing leader to International sensitive skin expert.

Simple was the brainchild of a dermatologist who conceived the brand as the soap-free, fragrance-free cleansing answer to his daughter’s sensitive skin. Back in 1990, we were tasked with modernising and broadening the appeal of the skin cleansing brand, then a soap and a lotion.

Our 1994 radical redesign of Simple in green and white packaging was an immediate success. Sales grew by over 40% and Simple was then building its range and penetration.

Having nurtured the brand ever since, we were retained by recent owner Unilever to evolve the brand image and develop Simple outside its core sensitive skin cleansing segment, where it still occupies the number 1 position.

Today our long term custody of the brand extends overseas and we are tasked to evolve and extend this trusted UK favourite into an International sensitive skin expert.
