Elave skin care products are being promoted by Irish company Ovelle Pharmaceuticals in a risque viral campaign featuring nude actors. A blonde woman, without clothes, tells the viewer about the safe quality of Elave skin care products, developed with the most reactive skin conditions in mind; eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis. Lab technicians , male and female, in the background wander around totally naked, apparently without any sense of self-consciousness.

The video, featuring nude women and men, is online at The Elave web site states, “We stand behind our skin care products, so much so that we are prepared to go naked to prove it.” Viewers are asked to indicate that they are 18 or over. No doubt versions used in television broadcasting will be censored in some way – which would make it difficult to say ‘nothing to hide’.

Responses to the Elave campaign are just starting to filter on to the internet. Some say that this is gratuitous nudity, an unnecessary attempt to get the attention of online viewers. Others tip their hats to the courage and nerve of the company to take the risk. There is certainly a link between the sensitive skin angle and the exposure of breasts and genitals – the body parts most sensitive. The actors in the ad do not exhibit any ’sexual behaviour’ towards one another, though it could be argued that the woman with the test tube is playing with innuendo.

The Elave Nothing To Hide campaign was developed by Saatchi & Saatchi New Zealand. Filming (in New Zealand) was directed by Brendan Donovan via Prodigy, New Zealand. Post production was done at Images Post. Film crew also went nude to put the cast at ease.

Joanna Gardener, of Ovelle Pharmaceuticals, appears in the advertisement, behind a laptop.

“As a mother of three children, I didn’t think I was the right choice for the front of the advert so we went for someone a bit easier on the eye,” Ms Gardener told The Daily Mail on Saturday.

Ovelle has seen a 500 per cent rise in sales, both online and in the High Street, since the campaign was launched on May 5.

    I think it’s great to see all that embraces the naked human form. Nothing to hide is exactly that…and what better way to demonstrate it. So what if we all come in different shapes and sizes. There’s absloutley nothing more natural than nakedness. And to all of the prudes out there whom suggest that it’s wrong…get a life and wake up!! There’s more to worry about in life than to get all bent out of shape over an ad with naked people in it.

    Lets just hope that the product stands up to it.

    Great ad very well done, not cheap or tacky. A breath of fresh air and sanity in a world gone “political correctness” mad.

    I agree with Andy, but it is a shame Tyler Jane doesn’t turn around. She is such a gorgeously plump beauty! Am I not the only one jealous of the cameraman?

  22. 22. Sparrow Says:

    Wonderful commercial, but…I find it weird and self-hating to rip out all your body hair like that. Humans have hair – why deny it?

  23. 23. Andy V Says:

    I do not suffer from any allergies or have any skin problems. I do not use any cosmetics apart from soap, but I do remember a product called “Elave” that I had never heard of before. Congratulations on a clever advertisement that worked on me and many more people who miss the point.

    I love this commercial! For me, the best thing is that the blonde beauty has a totally and cleanly shaved pussy AND you can see this really good… But I also love her absolutely pretty face including her blue eyes and her beautiful lips; her voice and her accent is very nice, too. It’s really really great that neither herself nor the producers of the commercial had a problem with presenting a hairless vulva! And as you can see in the clip, the other men and women showing everything between “hairy”, “partially shaved” and “totally shaved”.

    Looking for a used or new vehicle might be a difficult approach if you do not know what you really are carrying out. By teaching yourself about auto purchasing before you decide to visit the dealer, you possibly can make issues simpler yourself. The following advice might help your next buying journey be more pleasant.

    Constantly provide a technician coupled when buying a new car. Automobile sellers are well known for selling lemons and you may not need to be their up coming victim. Whenever you can not obtain a mechanic to think about vehicles with you, at least be sure that you have him take a look at ultimate selection before you buy it.

    Know your limitations. Before you start store shopping for your forthcoming vehicle or pickup truck, determine how much you can manage to spend, and stick to it. Don’t forget about to add desire for your computations. You can expect to spend about 20 percent as a down payment as well, so be prepared.

    Just before attending a car dealership, know what type of vehicle you need. Study most of you choices ahead of shopping to help you decide what works for your budget and family members requires. Do your homework to learn simply how much you need to be paying to get a potential car.

    Before signing any contract make time to read each and every series, for example the small print. If there is something outlined you do not fully grasp, usually do not indication before you have an response that you recognize. Unsavory salesmen can use a legal contract to insert several fees that have been not discussed.

    If you maintain the preceding assistance at heart the next time that you just go shopping for a vehicle, you will be more likely to get a full deal. Buying a automobile lacks to become headache. Just use the guidelines out of this post and you could receive the vehicle you would like in a great price.
