Helping Protect What We Love Since 1933

Agency: McCann


As we approach a more cautiously optimistic half of 2021, Dettol’s new UK brand campaign encourages us to tap into the passions that make us truly happy - and protect what we love doing most.
We’ve all learned what’s worth protecting during the pandemic. Whether it’s the weird and wonderful hobbies that kept us sane, the small business we managed to keep afloat, or the close-knit communities that held us together.
Dettol products have been by our side since 1933 when Dettol medicine was first used in hospitals to prevent post-natal sepsis in mothers. The brand has since become a global byword for germ kill and antiseptic. However, Dettol is now adopting a more positive life-enabling stance, helping give us the confidence to live life to the full. The new campaign is a clear manifestation of this strategic shift and the new ‘We Protect What We Love’ global brand platform, reflects the powerful human instinct to protect what matters.

This professional campaign titled 'Helping Protect What We Love Since 1933' was published in United Kingdom in June, 2021. It was created for the brand: Dettol, by ad agency: McCann. This Content medium campaign is related to the House, Garden industry and contains 6 media assets. It was submitted almost 3 years ago.
