“It was like taking a teaspoon (figuratively) of Nivea Crème and putting it into every new Nivea product as a special benefit - as an additional amount of care. In this way the new product was really a two-in-one product; satisfying a basic need plus offering the Care of Nivea Cream as a symbol."

Having built its 100-year history through the Crème, Nivea should continue to use this flagship product when appropriate since it resonates so well with consumers. This will reinforce and maintain the brand history, quality and trust that was built through Nivea Crème.

Consumers shifted from “one size fits all”
Trends drive product development but they don’t all:
Match the brand
Products conflicting with brand
Wait for blockbuster CoQ10
Stay relevant through R&D but be extra selective
Launch into new markets with existing lines
New Market Rollout Guidelines
Opinion leader endorsements critical
Assume low competition
Two options : Umbrella or segmented?
Corporate Guidance vs. Sub-Brands
Invest in corporate branding but provide bulk of budget to sub-brands to communicate with product line extension demographics
How different are the categories?
