Influential women representing different countries in the Asia Pacific region, including Sarah Roza from Australia, joined Merz Aesthetics to start a conversation about creating positive behaviours and attitudes around empowerment, self-confidence, beauty and body image. These women share their personal stories about overcoming their struggles and embracing their individuality without conforming to society’s standards of perfection or beauty.

Through this campaign, Merz Aesthetics hopes to inspire people to focus positively on their favourite features and minimise self-limiting beliefs preventing them from reaching their fullest potential.

The importance of the MASJ Campaign
This campaign was developed in response to results from a recent Merz Aesthetics APAC Consumer Research: ‘Discovering The Truth About Beauty and Self-Confidence’ conducted with Frost & Sullivan. This research showed a lower-than-expected level of self- confidence from the respondents (3,210 women & men, ranging from 21 – 55 years old; across 11 Asia Pacific countries, including Australia).

The key findings of this market research was that:

1)    70% of respondents lack self-confidence and often measure themselves against others

2)    50% of these less-confident individuals find it difficult to associate themselves as being beautiful/good-looking due to various reasons such as cultural norms and societal beauty standards.

3)    70% of respondents are highly proactive about making an effort to maintain and enhance their natural beauty adopting a healthy diet, exercise, and cosmetic treatments
