The Dove Code

Agency: SOKO


In an impactful stride towards real beauty representation, Dove has unveiled, "The Dove Code", to mark 20 years of the Campaign for Real Beauty. The campaign was created by Brazilian independent agency Soko, to challenge and transform the portrayal of women on AI-generated content.

"We are honored to lead the global campaign creative marking the 20 years of Dove advocating for Real Beauty. The prevailing trend within AI-generated imagery showcases a homogenized beauty standard—mainly featuring blonde hair and depicting white, tanned skin—mirroring societal biases. When Soko tested prompts for women's imagery adding 'according to Dove real beauty campaign' we realized the results were dramatically more diverse, inclusive and real. That's a code Dove embedded on AI forever because of 20 years of campaigns for real real beauty. Dove changes AI, because the brand has been actually changing beauty," says Brisa Vicente, Partner and co-CEO of creative agency Soko.

At the heart of the campaign Dove commits to never using AI to replace real women in its ads. By showcasing the embedded Dove's principles into AI, the campaign seeks to redefine what beauty looks like in the digital age, ensuring of beauty. The Real State of Beauty: a global report by Dove revealed the impact of AI on body confidence, with 1 in 3 women feeling pressure to alter their appearance because of what they see online, even when they know it’s fake or AI generated.

The film was produced by Saigon and directed by Juliana Curi in partnership with The Mill, Diprod, Big Sync Music and HEFTY, the film showcases 100% actual results from AI tools using the prompts shown, all embodied in the classical "Pure Imagination" song performed exclusively for the campaign by rising singer Victoria Canal.

To help set new digital standards of representation, Dove has created the Real Beauty Prompt Guidelines, easy to use guidance for the AI curious and content creators as a starting point to challenge the beauty bias in AI and strive to create images that are representative of Real Beauty on the most popular generative AI programs.
