Barbasol launches new “Can of Can-Do” Brand Campaign

Perio, Inc., the makers of Barbasol and Pure Silk brands, launches campaign featuring iconic can

DUBLIN, Ohio, March 6, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Barbasol, America’s No. 1 brand of shaving cream that has been trusted by consumers for over 100 years, unveiled a new brand campaign today called “Can of Can-Do” featuring the brand’s iconic barber pole-striped can. The campaign, which launched nationwide, celebrates the brand’s history and aims to fuse humor and inspiration as a reminder of Barbasol’s commitment to delivering a close, comfortable shave.

“The iconic Barbasol brand and can were built on a ‘can-do’ spirit that we’ve passed on to consumers for more than a century,” says Tim McNamara, VP of Marketing, Perio, Inc. “This campaign marks an important moment in our history where we begin to help consumers associate the pole-striped staple in their routine with that coveted feeling of empowerment and their ability to take on whatever the day brings.”

Barbasol is a household shaving cream brand that one in four households use daily. The brand has been an innovative leader since 1919 when founder Frank Shields sought to create a shaving cream that did not have to be worked into a lather. In 2019, Barbasol celebrated 100 years as a highly-trusted American tradition in shaving.

“We wanted to showcase the classic Barbasol can and make the campaign fun. Barbasol personifies the can-do spirit we all aspire to,” says Rich Tlapek, co-founder and creative director for the Divot Group, the advertising agency behind the new campaign.

The “Can of Can-Do” campaign will launch with 0:15-second TV spots featuring the brand’s classic can and encourage the viewer to start every morning fresh and hopeful after a smooth clean shave. The spots will run on a variety of sports channels, syndicated networks, and social media, beginning with the title sponsorship of the Horizon League Basketball Championship, on March 6th on ESPN.
