For over 65 years, BABOR has been producing vegan and sustainably produced cosmetics at its headquarters in Aachen. Together with denkwerk, the first TV and moving image campaign in the company's history has now been conceived and produced. Digital meets classic and the other way around, so to speak.
The campaign focuses on one of BABOR's icons – the newly launched Ampoule Concentrates. A product "that comes with a pretty special shape. Explaining the ampoule initially briefly and using both size and shape as triggers was extremely important to us," says Roman Königsmark, Head of Planning at denkwerk. Pia Steinmann, Marketing Director Brand Communication at BABOR, adds: "Our ampoules are absolute premium products and high-performers. It was clear to us from the beginning that this fact should not be neglected in the commercials." At the same time, despite the premium claim, a human closeness was to be established and, above all, the result of the application – namely naturally beautiful skin – was not to be lost sight of under any circumstances.
Clear, modern, bright: This is how the style of the films should be later. To create this look, denkwerk brought experienced reinforcement from the beauty segment onto the set in the form of Munich director Florian Seidel. Eike Rieche, another beauty expert from Hamburg, was in charge of the camera. The result of the West-South-North collaboration can be seen in Germany on TV and online since April 4, 2022. The campaign will also be present in the USA and China – mainly in digital channels.
The Düsseldorf agency WAVEMAKER is responsible for the media placement of the BABOR spots. As part of an integrated full-funnel strategy, the campaign will be played out across all relevant video channels. The eye-catching primetime TV appearance will be extended via YouTube, social media and display.
