Danish makeup and skincare brand Nilens Jord has launched a new campaign that highlights entrenched attitudes towards women by asking us to “look beyond beauty” and instead focus on female achievements.
An unexpected tagline for a cosmetic brand, – but it’s one that echoes the company’s pioneering spirit and its ambition to change the beauty industry from within.
As the brand said: “When we reduce women and girls to their looks, we limit their potential. It’s time the beauty industry takes responsibility for changing this. Look Beyond Beauty is our rallying cry.”
The campaign is led by a 75-second film that follows Sara a young girl contemplating great achievements ahead in her life, including being the first woman on the moon, winning four grand slams in tennis, or becoming the richest woman in the world. However, with all these amazing achievements, people remain more focused on physical aspects rather than what she has accomplished.
