Knight's Castile Soap

Loading the player...

This mother/daughter scene plays on the honesty of children to draw attention to the mother's youthfulness. It includes the following dialogue:

As the young daughter peers into a baby's bassinet, she says: "Mummy, I think it looks like you… She has soft skin just like you... Will I have soft skin when I’m as old as you?"

The mother replies: "If you keep using Knight’s Castile – it has lanolin!"

This theme is reinforced on a visual level, with costumes and makeup styled to invite comparison of the similarities between the daughter and her youthful-looking mother.
