Mentholatum SA, a health and wellness company and the makers of Happy Event, has announced the launch of six new products together with a fresh new packaging design across its existing and new ranges.
“Happy Event has a strong heritage of over 50 years, working with mothers during both antenatal and postnatal stages of their journey,” says Lisa Lewis, Senior Brand Manager at Mentholatum SA.
“The launch of our new products and total revamp of all packaging is driven by our commitment to support women during this special time.” Primarily used by mothers throughout their pregnancy to prevent stretch marks, Happy Event is also designed for application during rapid weight gain or loss, helping the skin to adapt.
The introduction of six new products sees Happy Event extend its existing ante and postnatal offerings. This includes a range of everyday products (Happy Event Luxury Cream Bars and Happy Event Luxury Body Butter Fragrance Free).
They’ve also added smaller sizes (50ml) of three existing products, allowing for more convenient options.
A legacy of 50+ years
Building on its 50+ years’ legacy, Happy Event’s product formulations are paraben free and its powerful key ingredient Pure Olive Oil is of the highest quality sourced from the finest olive oil orchards in Spain.
Olive oil has been used for centuries to successfully reduce and relieve everyday ailments (such as stretch marks). Clinical trials have also found that olive oil contains anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and anti-aging properties as it is packed with antioxidants and vitamins (A, D and E). These vitamins hydrate the skin by building the skin’s moisture barrier to prevent loss of moisture. Further benefits include the reduction of stretch marks and the maintaining of skin tightness and integrity (which gets loosened due to the expansion of the dermis during pregnancy). Massaging olive oil into the skin also improves blood circulation, further known to reduce stretch marks to a great extent.
With the launch of these new products imminent, Happy Event’s new packaging has already been enthusiastically received by its existing consumer base. In fact, the results of a recent consumer survey indicate that as many as 92.5% of all respondents are happy with the new look. Further, an overwhelming 100% felt that the new packaging is not only educational but also clearly explains the product benefits.
“Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for consumers to select a product that they can be confident will meet their needs,” continues Lewis. “The best way to do this is to ensure that vital information is clearly communicated on all product packaging, whilst also ensuring that the look and feel of the brand is current and relative to today’s marketplace.”
Keep an eye out for Happy Event’s new product range and exciting fresh packaging, available soon from leading pharmacies and retailers nationwide.
