Meaning and History

Herbal Essences Logo History

After the transition to a new owner, the trademark retained its original visual identity. And to make it even more recognizable and in demand, Procter & Gamble redesigned it because the debut versions had a cartoon image of a girl in flowers. By now, the brand has changed five main logos.

What is Herbal Essences?

At the end of this period, when the herbal line was acquired by Procter & Gamble, labels became more diverse with the development of new shampoos under the collective name Herbal Essences. The base plant was located in the center and surrounded by a wide ring with the line’s name. A double red and white border followed it.

1995 – 2005

Orange flowers, like marigolds, gave way to a large pink rose. A simple hand-drawn style was replaced by a naturalistic design. The plant looked like an illustration from an encyclopedia or like a fragment of a photograph. In the dark green ring that surrounded it, recesses were made in the shape of protruding petals. The frame served as the basis for the brand name, written in white letters with fine serifs. On the outside, the Herbal Essences logo was surrounded by a hot pink stripe.

2005 – 2014
