Consumers are turning increasingly to the internet for their beauty products prompting L’Occitane and PZ Cussons to invest in the growing channel.

To support the launch of Imperial Leather Skin Bliss, PZ Cussons is creating an “all singing, all dancing” website with the help of Code Computerlove.

The company is investing £1.5m in the marketing campaign for the moisturizing shower lotion and the internet is playing an important branding and education role.

Heather Boden, brand manager for Imperial Leather, said: “Our digital presence will help us to extend our communication and dialogue with consumers (primarily women), enhance awareness and educate consumers about the products benefits.

“Code is working up a digital marketing strategy that will centre around a consumer facing website, as well as other online tactics.”
