The P&G Effect

SHEmazing PandGWe have to admit, Procter & Gamble’s latest campaign has changed the way we to do our beauty and household shopping!

The P&G Effect campaign has been launched to inform Irish consumers of the impressive science stories behind every-day P&G brands and showcases the value they bring to our lives.

P&G spends a staggering €2billion per year on research and development and there are many decades of science behind every single brand, making them amazing value for money.

Just look at all the effort that going in to making Pantene haircare!

– Pantene’s Research & Development community has more PHD scientists than the combined research faculty of MIT, Berkeley and Stanford – Wow!

– An atomic force microscope (AFM) like the one NASA has used to study the surface of Mars was used by Pantene to study the surface of the hair, to better understand how different hair fibres react with different ingredients, depending on their physical structure

– The methodology used to develop Pantene won a Nobel prize

And all we’re normally concerned about is how it makes our hair smell and feel!
