Insights

  • Bath & Body Works' target market (+30 y.o women) changes per generation. We need to stay up to date with the next generation's needs.

 

  • Bath & Body Works relies on brick & mortar shopping, but malls are dying. Online retail is advantageous with its convenience, information, and customisation.

 

  • Consumers are growing an interest in healthy & natural 'skin care' part of personal care.

  • Consumers are uncomfortable to big changes. If the eco-friendly solution is too different, people won't change habits just because. We need to ease changes one by one.

 

  • Bath & Body Works uses too much plastic. But its USP is in its vibrance, energy, and affordability. 

"It's something I casually do while spending time with my kids. It's

fun and makes them happy"

Kelly, mom (35)

"I'd love new things I can show to others. Bath & Body Works is always cute, but something new & unique from them would be great"

Selena, beauty influencer (32)

"I usually buy in bulk at once with their big sale. But I've been stopping because most went expired before I can finish a few. I feel bad"

Kim, mom (30)

"I have terrible vision when I don't have my glasses. My shower's cramped with all my bath & beauty stuff, it'd be easier to identify things with obvious shapes, textures, or colours."

Annie, Bath & Body Works fan (31)

Brand Concept

The brand takes the concept of a laboratorium & experiments. Where users can be a scientist creating their own care & health potions.

Inspired by the story of Bath & Body Works' persona: 

 

Kate used to make body care products with natural ingredients from the plants around her family's farm. She then went to study and major in biology, to learn more of the health benefits and open up her own store!
