In October 2019, South Africa’s favourite skincare brand, POND’S, unveiled its partnership with iconic illustrator and street artist, Karabo “Poppy” Moletsane. Karabo designed one of her signature patterns as a limited-edition gift bag for the brand’s Pimple Clear Range, which pays homage to and is inspired by the youth of South Africa.
This collaboration is a celebration of the POND’S peeps – the youth of South Africa – and the creativity that stems from their passions.
“I am inspired by millennials’ immense bravery to forge new paths and challenge conventions,” said Karabo Poppy. “The design reflects South African youth’s ability to learn and an adapt to an ever-changing world.”
“POND’S has proven over the years that it is a brand that listens to the needs of its consumers – not only through its product innovations, but also its collaborations with some of the top talent in South Africa and the world - and also has the capability to evolve with the times,” says Bawinile Kwela, Marketing Manager for Hair and Face Care – Unilever
