Enthused with Vitality
Vitality is at the heart of everything we do. It's in our brands, our people and our values.
Vitality means different things to different people. Some see it as energy, others view it more broadly as a healthy state of body and mind – of feeling alive.
Whatever their personal definition, millions of people around the world use our products daily to add Vitality to their lives - whether that's through feeling great because they've got shiny hair and a brilliant smile, keeping their homes fresh and clean, or by enjoying a great cup of tea, satisfying meal or healthy snack.
Ever since the 19th Century when William Hesketh Lever stated that the company's mission was "to make cleanliness commonplace; to lessen work for women; to foster health and contribute to personal attractiveness, that life may be more enjoyable and rewarding for the people who use our products," Vitality has been at the heart of our business.
Vitality defines what we stand for: our values, what makes us different, and how we contribute to society. It's the common thread that links our brands and it’s central to the unique way we operate around the world.
Health & nutrition
Our Vitality mission commits us to growing our business by addressing health and nutrition issues. We focus on priorities including children and family nutrition, cardiovascular health and weight management.
Inside & out
Our culture also embodies Vitality. Adding Vitality of life requires the highest standards of behaviour towards everyone we work with, the communities we touch and the environments on which we have an impact.
The growing demand for more Vitality in life provides us with a huge opportunity for growth. The way we work and the products we develop are shaped by consumer trends, along with the need to help raise health and hygiene standards in both the developing and industrialised regions of the world.
