Mentholatum LipCare has teamed up with plant-based ice cream brand Kind Kones to roll out a new ice cream flavour in Malaysia. The special ice cream flavour Pure AvoBerry Crush, now available in all Kind Kones’ stores, was created using all-natural ingredients such as almond, avocado, and grape. These are common ingredients that can be found in Lip Pure’s lip balms and Kind Kones’ desserts. Mentholatum LipCare and Kind Kones aim to spotlight natural ingredients through this collaboration, as both brands do not use any preservatives, fragrances, or colourants in their products as well as the creation of the ice cream.
According to Ellie Kok, Brand Manager of Mentholatum LipCare at Rohto-Mentholatum Malaysia, the Lip Pure range is made from 100% finest food-grade ingredients, enhanced with essentials oil and Beeswax to provide hydration and nourishment for softer, smoother lips.
“When discussing with Kingdom Digital (our social media agency) how to educate customers about Lip Pure’s USP in a memorable way, they proposed the idea of working with Kind Kones to create a unique ice cream flavour based on the ingredients used in making the lip balms. We loved the concept, as it allows our customers to taste the freshness and pure goodness that come from the natural ingredients associated with the lip balms,” added Ellie Kok.
Ravena Hundal, Head of Marketing at Kind Kones expressed, “We are excited to partner with Mentholatum LipCare to bring more awareness about natural ingredients, as we are passionate about building a more health-conscious community. We had so much fun working with the brand and the agency during the flavour R&D process, as we get to try different combinations that we have yet to explore.”
To drive awareness about the campaign and promote the ice cream, Kingdom Digital will also be supporting the campaign with social media content, KOL content direction, and creative development.
Lui Xiao Yee, Head of Account Servicing at Kingdom Digital shared, “Our content strategy for Lip Pure will focus on communicating the food-grade ingredients and their benefits. We have a series of engaging executions planned for the Lip Pure campaign and these will be released on the brand’s Facebook and Instagram over the next few weeks.”
