Product Concept:

The 7 signs of aging typically includes:

Wrinkles and fine lines which are usually because of UV rays, tobacco or of genetic inheritance.

Texture of the non-uniform skin, a usual cause of aging which mainly causes the skin to become thinner and more fragile, losing its elasticity gradually.

Unequal pigmentation, with passage of time the production of the natural pigment of the skin and the melanin falls, and this causes blemishes on the skin.

Lack of luminosity, which is due to the diminution of the hormonal activity.

Visible pores.

Age spots, as a result of prolonged solar exposure.

Dryness, usually due to dehydration that turns the skin dry and rough.

Olay and Ponds battle to iron out wrinkles

When Procter & Gamble (P&G) and Unilever (UL) pushed the button at the same time, that of the anti-ageing cream segment, the category sprung from a meager Rs 60 crore to over Rs 300 crores in just one year.

Marketing Head of P&G said, “In less than a year since the launch, Olay has captured the market like it was always here - with 20% market share in a young anti-ageing market seeing 500% sales growth annually.

In comparison, the incumbent Ponds - with 18.6% market share in May, has had it tougher
In comparison, the incumbent Ponds - with 18.6% market share in May, has had it
tougher despite a longer presence here. Ponds itself went through a makeover, two
years back, moving from white and blue to a pricy red range of age control products to
preempt Olay's launch in Pakistan.While UL was not willing to comment on this story,
experts say in the end it was trounced by Olay in the grass root branding strategy.

COMPETITOR S

Pond’s is the leading skin care expert including a deep understanding of women’s emotional needs. Pond’s

In the market for just a year, Pond’s Age Miracle wasn’t leaping off store shelves. It faces strong competition from entrenched like Olay, Loreal ,Garnier, Revlon. Olay have also come to offer their own product which is also aimed to minimize the signs of aging. This is the Olay Total Effects. Aside from a simple skin care product, Olay has extended its heritage as a moisturizer to stay looking young, to formally creating the “anti-aging” category in mass stores with the launch of Total Effects in 1999. One factor that made their product very popular is with its affordability. Most Asian women, tends to be fastidious about their skincare regimen. Beauty care is one of the few areas where they tend to be loyal to favorite products..
