According to a new campaign from Spritzer Natural Mineral Water, to most of us, water is just water. We use it. We drink it. We hardly think about it until we are thirsty again.
That just about describes us!
But to Spritzer, water – specifically, natural mineral water sourced from its protected and preserved rainforest reservoir in Taiping, Perak – it is more than a mere thirst quencher, and the brand it aiming to change that perception with its latest campaign.
Created by FCB SHOUT, the new ‘Nourishing Youthful Skin From Within’ campaign features celebrities Ayda Jebat and Merqeen, and, according to FCB SHOUT, the bigger star of the campaign is in the water’s minerals – namely, silica.
“When various credible researchers, including the University of London and Keele University, reported on the remarkable health benefits that the silica in our natural mineral water has – which was corroborated by local skin specialists who saw improvements on themselves as well as their patients just by consuming silica-rich mineral water daily – we knew that we have a gem in our hands that will not only make a splash, but completely change the game,” said Shiao Chan, Spritzer’s Head of Marketing.
“Out of the countless health benefits that silica has, skincare is, strategically, the best starting point to educate consumers about the health benefits of silica,” said Syahriza Badron, the General Manager of FCB SHOUT.
“After all, we live in a world where skincare is rapidly ascending on the consumers’ list of priorities, as evidently seen in the extensive routines they are willing to go through each day to ensure good skin health.
“The idea is to show consumers what silica can do for their skin and how it can be part of their daily skincare routine,” added Jonathan Chan, FCB SHOUT’s Associate Creative Director, explains.
“So we thought, what better way to do that than by portraying Spritzer Natural Mineral Water as a skincare product? It’s an unconventional approach for a mineral water brand, but ‘unconventional’ is exactly what we need to change the conventional perception of our mineral water.”
The campaign also features Health Care Professionals (HCP), who were engaged to talk about the benefits of silica, as well as imparting their knowledge on skincare to consumers.
Spritzer Natural Mineral Water is not the only Spritzer product that needs a change in perception. The Hari Raya (Eid) campaign for Spritzer Sparkling – also created by FCB SHOUT – sees the sparkling water veer off the traditional “just another beverage for the Raya season” path to embrace a new role as a versatile mixer that adds a wholesome fizz and flavour to enhance other beverages, instead of competing directly against them.
