Dove exposes harmful beauty standards with an Injectable Billboard at Square One

For years, Dove has championed wider definitions of beauty and has taken action towards making beauty a more positive space with campaigns. As part of its ongoing mission to make beauty accessible to all, Dove is exposing the harmful nature of beauty ideals and its negative impact on youth.

To illustrate the impact of toxic beauty standards on young girls, Dove constructed a billboard made of syringes – representing the number of Canadian girls ages 14 to 17 who have undergone injectable cosmetic beauty treatments in the last year. The billboard was located at Square One (Toronto).

New research has found that an increasing number of teen girls ages 14 to 17 have turned to invasive procedures like cosmetic injectables to alter their appearance to meet the unrealistic beauty standards they see in their feeds and the world around them.

This professional campaign titled 'Injectable Billboard' was published in Canada in April, 2023. It was created for the brand: Dove, by ad agencies: DAVID Miami and Ogilvy Toronto. This Experiential medium campaign is related to the Beauty and Health industries and contains 4 media assets. It was submitted 6 months ago.
