Conclusion:
Fairness creams constitute a consistent
proportion of income for the FMCG companies
in India. As most of the Indians are very much
bothered about their colour complexion and
the fairness creams enjoy very good market
growth rate when compared with other
related product categories. As Fair & lovely
has done wonders, other players in the
market can also follow their philosophy of
`fairness`. Loreal is also the preferred brand
but fair & lovely is leading among others. It is
not sufficient if a company has the right
product with right quality.It has to be
communicated properly to the target
audience. Hence TVCs which were widely
remembered and recognized by Indian
consumers for fairness consumers for fairness
creams can be made use for creating the
awareness for various brands for fairness
creams.
