75 years of Dettol
Dettol, the brand synonymous with protection from germs, had for long been voted as India’s most trusted brand. In September 2008, the marketing team of Dettol was reviewing the brand’s performance in its 75th year of existence to formulate a three-year plan. Dettol’s growth trend had been slow but steady over the years and a number of initiatives taken in the recent years had started yielding results. The brand started its journey in 1933 as antiseptic liquid, but over the years, it has been extended to a number of product categories like toilet soaps, liquid handwash, liquid bodywash, shaving cream and plaster strips. The growth trend in the last few years had been encouraging with shares showing an accelerated upward growth in most categories, but the team felt share gain could be much faster. The brand team decided to further build on the growth trajectory and set itself a visionary target - that of doubling Dettol’s overall share in next three years in the combined market of the product categories it is present in (Antiseptic Liquid, Bar soaps, Liquid Handwash, Bodywash). The team knew that it had to address various challenges to achieve its ambitious target viz. consumers saw the need for germ kill only in specific situations, resulting in irregular usage and seasonality. The brand had to fight in a competing environment in which new variants and re-launches were used for driving growth, it was critical to determine what & where should be the business thrust to optimize the marketing spend and further accelerate the brand growth.

75 years of Dettol
RBIL distributes all its products through its common distribution channel, which has a wide and deep reach in the markets and is a key strength of the company.

The brand Dettol was launched in India in 1933 in the Antiseptic liquid form as a treatment for cuts and wounds. For almost the first 50 years, Dettol was present only as an antiseptic liquid. Although it was being used in hospitals and nursing homes for first aid and disinfectant uses like cleaning wards, washing linen, etc. Consumers were also using it for bathing, mopping, shaving and other secondary purposes. While it started its journey as the ‘cuts and wounds’ brand in the country, over the years it had taken over the role of ‘protector from germs’ in every situation. Dettol Antiseptic Liquid has some strong, distinct associations-first and foremost is its trademark smell. Who can miss the characteristic Dettol smell that has been the reassurance to many a child’s scraped knee! Consumers recognize the smell enough to refer to a medicinally clean room as ‘Dettol like smell’. In the book, ‘Planning of Power Advertising’, Anand Halve mentions, “It is a safe bet that you will be able to tell the smell of Dettol liquid on a cut with the reassuring tingling sensation which tells you it has begun to work. Savlon on the other does not have the same burning sensation, (and is) very often seen by consumers as ‘ineffective’ ”. The second characteristic is its amber gold color. The third is the ‘clouding’ effect that appears when it is added to water. Dettol’s packaging is distinct in its very own way. The green & white colours are associated with hospitals. All Dettol products have a sword on the pack, which is a symbol for fighting germs and infection. Over the years, the clouding action and the sword have become synonymous with the brand and have been creatively used in Dettol advertising. Consumers see Dettol as an ‘expert’, as something which is effective and versatile and guarantees protection from germs. It has been likened to a bodyguard who protects them from the unclean and unhygienic outside world. The brand’s versatility stems from multiple uses of the antiseptic liquid which offers protection in so many different forms. Usage of the brand gives rise to many emotions in the consumers’ minds. From making them feel safe and secure about the well-being of their family to making the mother feel that she has done the best for her family, the brand evokes positive imageries and emotions. Thus, it is only fitting that the brand’s tagline says - Be 100% Sure. Over the years brand Dettol has been extended and has made its presence felt in a number of product categories.
