New Dove® Advanced Care Deodorant Provides Softer, Smoother Armpit Skin in Just Three Days
ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., Feb. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Armpits are one of the most neglected body parts. Many women do not even think of their armpits as skin and, therefore, deprive them of the care and attention they give the rest of their bodies. Without even realizing it, women are damaging their underarms when shaving. In fact, only 64% of what is removed when shaving is hair, 36% is actually skin1, and as a result of shaving, skin loses 50% more moisture, which can lead to dryness and sensitivity2. Dove wants to help women see their armpits in a new light and give them the care they need.
New Dove® Advanced Care Deodorant is the only deodorant formulated with NutriumMoisture™, offering the brand's best care ever, while also providing 48-hour odor and wetness protection. NutriumMoisture™ is a proprietary Dove® formula comprised of ingredients that are known to moisturize the skin. Using this new line of deodorants provides women with softer, smoother armpit skin in just three days. From bathing suits to evening gowns, women can now reveal their armpits with confidence and enjoy the benefits of special care.
"Skin is our body's largest organ and it all needs proper care. That care will vary by body part since some areas have thinner, more sensitive skin than others," said Dr. Ellen Marmur, Dermatologist. "By adding NutriumMoisture™ to deodorant, Dove® has made it easy for women to give their armpit skin the care it deserves."
With the launch of new Dove® Advanced Care Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant, Dove® is drawing attention to the importance of underarm care by offering a three-step PitiCure™ treatment to women at events in New York, Los Angeles and Miami on Valentine's Day Eve (February 13, 2014). Women will also have the opportunity to showcase their confidence with a celebratory "arms up" pose in Valentine's Day attire at a Dove® photo booth.
"It is time to change the perception of the underarm by bringing women our best care ever with Dove® Advanced Care Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant and the PitiCure™ treatment," says Matthew McCarthy, Senior Director of Deodorants/Antiperspirants, Unilever. "We want to make sure women give themselves the care and attention they need before they care for their loved ones on Valentine's Day this year."
The Dove® PitiCure™ – which can easily be performed at home – is a treatment that cleanses and helps care for armpit skin over time with the application of Dove® Advanced Care Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant with NutriumMoisture™.
