Vatika Naturals Inspires Inclusivity in Workplace with the Hashtag RootForMe Campaign

South Asian Hair Care Brand Vatika Naturals Champions Diversity with #RootForMe Campaign Featuring All-Female Comedy Lineup.

Vatika Naturals, a flagship brand from House of Dabur, after pioneering an empowering initiative this International Women’s Day with the launch of their IWD2024 campaign, #ROOTFORME in the USA and UK, is now campaigning on the same in India to create awareness.

#ROOTFORME is a digital campaign that marked IWD2024 addressing intersectionality at the workplace which affects women of colour, compounded by race, ethnicity, religion, and several other issues which can pose as a major roadblock for career advancement for a lot of women and make them susceptible to workplace harassment and stereotyping.

From being a generic hair care brand for South Asian women, this year Vatika Naturals embarked on a journey to become the preferred brand by multi-ethnic audiences across the UK and the USA and have a significant presence among Indian women.

Redefining women’s empowerment this International Women’s Day, Vatika led a conversation with humour addressing workplace stereotypes and discrimination, through partnerships with leading stand-up comediennes like Shazia Mirza and Sikisa.

In celebration of the campaign launch, Business Head Dabur International Europe UK, Zakir Mansoori stated – Vatika Naturals has been bringing bespoke hair care solutions to multi-ethnic audiences around the World for over 35 years and the brand has been garnering a lot of love from our loyal base of customers. Earlier this year we launched our Afro Naturals range, especially for women with textured hair. And there is lots to look forward to from Vatika, as we embark on this journey to make the brand relevant to a wider audience, which would include new product launches and newer formulations for different hair types.

Roshni Singh, Group Marketing Manager UK EU & Americas stated, “Vatika Naturals is not just a hair care brand but a custodian of values which champion diversity, differences, and uniqueness especially amongst women. With the #ROOTFORME campaign, Vatika endeavours to further strengthen its stand towards being inclusive and diverse.” #RootForMe is a call to action for individuals to stand together and dismantle barriers preventing equality for women and specifically women of colour. Vatika is always challenging the status quo or stereotypes that hinder the growth of an individual.”

Agency Founder and Chairman for HereandNow365, Manish Tiwari further elucidated that “Vatika Naturals is a brand which identifies and celebrates differences, and to match the brand’s vision, our team has developed this concept which is not just clutter-breaking but light-hearted. The aim of deploying humour is not to make light of the issues at hand, rather to offer hard-hitting provocative messaging through treatment and platforms which resonate with our younger audiences in today’s time.

The two-week campaign was launched across Vatika’s social media channels on the 8th of March 2024 across UK and the USA and now active on several platforms in India. To amplify the message, the brand was seen at iconic landmarks like Times Square, New York city and the London Underground in March, to spark dialogue around workplace issues, stereotypes, and navigating these challenges.
