Your challenge

Deo brands offer a wide variety of antiperspirants. 

How do you as a Marketing Executive prove your product’s efficacy? How do you get attention and raise awareness in the first place?

Many of our  clients face additional challenges such as the need to:

  • prove a claim
  • engage consumers at the POS and other channels
  • raise  brand awareness and
  • create brand trust

Your customer’s challenge

Consumers often feel overwhelmed by what is offered in stores and online, and find it difficult to choose “the one”.  How do they know if the product delivers what it promises?

Some questions  consumers ask themselves:

  • How well does the antiperspirant protect against sweat?
  • What is the scent like?
  • How do I know if the claim really works?
  • Why is the beauty advisor recommending this particular product? Is it his/her own interest?

How to perform the test


Carefully tear out one test strip.


Apply the deo to be tested onto the test area. Make sure to cover the whole test area. Then wait for 2-5 seconds.


Dip the test strip into a glass of water for the maximum of 1 second.


Once removed from the water, the test field will immediately start to change its colour. Full colour change might take 2-3 minutes. Compare the final result with reference fields.

Let's customize it!

We can easily customize the Protection Proof Test and adjust size, shape, material, printing effects and more – so the tool perfectly reflects the uniqueness of your brand.


I worked with your team in the past to develop the sweat strips and the Dove Deo card. These tools were used to educate consumers and have been instrumental in growing the category in the region.
