Ongoing marketing planning: At that time they have not any product in Pakistan market which provide the both feature sun block and face wash . UNILEVER (PAKISTAN) have already face wash and sun block cream products under the brand LUX and PONDS. Swot analysis:  Strength:  Sunwash offer under the brand Lux and company Unilever.  Provide the both feature sunblock + facewash  Low price  Weakness: Fewer budget for marketing activities.(here are many huge brands in this regard so we have a sort of threat). They again and again scanned the market but they did not found such a dual benefit providing product or any product of similar functions.There is also an other reason of selecting and exploiting this opportunity that they were already working in same type of cosmetic products and they were aware of all the aspects of these products and it was easy for their team to work with this type of formula product . Opportunity Identification and Selection: Unilever’s mission is to add vitality to life. Sunwash have no direct competitors as such as our product is unique and one of its type. We meet everyday needs for nutrition. All those who made face washes and sun blocks.I. Meanwhile their R&D department after making a thorough research reported that there was not a single product in the market that provides both functions (face wash&Sunblock) simultaneously.There are the following LUX strategic planning for the new product Sunwash. So the LUX offer the new product in the face wash industry. There were many products which comprised of only one function like Nivea (Sun block) and Lux (face wash). indirect competitors are many for example (NIVEA sun block ) they have only one attribute is protect our skin from radiant sun rays but they have not any feature of face wash. This report put the Unilever product Manager to think over this opportunity. 21 . That is way our product have edge against our competitors. hygiene and personal care in LUX product Sunwash that help people to feel good. look good and protect their skin from dangerous sun light and get more out of life.

It’s a very good source for them as it lounges under Unilever’s company and a very respectable brand LUX.  Publics: Our publics are interested in our product as it may bring a financial interest to our stock holders. and the other major factor of this is our media public. 22 . Opportunity:  New product  People trends are shifting  Threats:  Strong indirect competitors  Lack of awareness Major source of gathering the idea.  Consultants: Most management consulting firms do new products works because its provide both feature sunwash and face wash.
