GSK uses father-son imagery to promote Oilatum Junior eczema treatment

Oilatum image

GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) is using an image of a father and son in an advertising campaign to reflect the “protective” qualities of its Oilatum Junior eczema products.

The image of a “protective” father “draws parallels with Oilatum, which protects a child’s eczema-prone skin from day one”, GSK claimed.

The picture – published in January as part of a wider advertising campaign – will help to inform patients “that Oilatum is gentle enough to use from the very first touch”, the manufacturer added.

As part of the marketing campaign, GSK has also partnered with Amazon and NetDoctor to produce branded articles, videos and social media “focusing on first-time mums”.

The Oilatum Junior range includes a cream and a bath additive, which both contain light liquid paraffin and can treat contact dermatitis, atopic eczema, senile pruritus, ichthyosis and related dry skin conditions, the manufacturer said.

GSK skin health senior brand manager James Sharman said: “At the earliest stages of childhood, skin-to-skin contact is vital for the health and wellbeing of a new-born baby. We hope to bring parent and baby closer than ever with our new visual campaign.”
