Elizabeth Arden Campaign
The Elizabeth Arden Sun Protection for Summer Campaign took place on Monday the 26th of December at the V&A Waterfront and on Camps Bay beach on the 28,29 and 30 December.
The campaign aimed to drive awareness on the importance of sun protection by hosting workshops, consultations and giving out complimentary samples to beach-goers and holiday makers.
A gigantic number eight was created on the beach using bright, yellow umbrellas to show how much the brand supports sun protection in South Africa. This PR stunt was broadcast on the national news over two days.
According to the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA) the most common cancer in South Africa is skin cancer with about 200,000 new cases reported annually. South Africa has the second highest incidence of skin cancer in the world.
The charity partner, Look Good…Feel Better (based locally and abroad), which is also supported by Elizabeth Arden international, was there to give out information and host workshops on the beach. The cosmetic-industry funded charity program helps female cancer patients, undergoing active treatment, by providing free beauty workshops through a network of hospitals and clinics. These workshops are designed to assist these women in managing their appearance related to cancer therapy side-effect.
All launch communications aimed to drive media to deliver messages to the public on the importance of protecting ones skin throughout summer with the help of Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour sun protection cream.
