                               Clothes Right On

ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J. -- March 12, 2013

Eighty million women in the U.S. have lotion in their home, but do not use it
on a daily basis^1. Over half of these light lotion users claim “lack of time
for themselves” as being the biggest barrier to lotion use.^2 Many of these
women know they should be using body lotion every day, but skip it because it
takes too long to apply and absorb, slowing down their morning routine.
Introducing new Vaseline® Spray & Go Moisturizer – a quick, continuous 360°
spray lotion that moisturizes deeply and absorbs in seconds, so women can put
their clothes right on after moisturizing and get on with their day. Leaving
skin instantly soft – not sticky or greasy – this breakthrough lotion will be
available nationally in stores beginning March 2013.

Unlike traditional bottled lotions, new Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer
delivers category changing innovation through the union of three special
elements:

1. External Structure: Consists of an expertly-engineered, twist-lock actuator
that is easy to press and prevents spills, as well as a contoured aluminum can
that fits nicely in the hand.

2. Internal Structure: Utilizes bag-on-valve technology for 360° continuous
spray delivery, using only compressed air.

3. Formulation: Thin enough to spray, while utilizing the right balance of
humectants and occlusives to deliver a non-sticky sensory experience, and
effective moisturization. The formula contains multi-layer moisture complex
and infuses moisture across all layers of skin^3 – at the top, the core and
deep down.

These features unite to deliver a targeted spray (approximately the width of a
woman’s wrist) that spreads easily and evenly, and absorbs in 10 seconds or
less with a few quick rubs. For fast, full body coverage, women are encouraged
to utilize the product’s signature application method - the “Up, Switch, Down,
Rub” - where one sprays up one side of the body, switches hands, sprays down
the other side of the body, and then quickly rubs the lotion in.

“We know the number one reason women do not use lotion more regularly is
because of the wait time that comes with normal lotion application,” says Dawn
Hedgepeth, Unilever U.S. Skin Director. “That is why we are excited to be
launching new Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer, a breakthrough innovation that
offers women a quick and convenient moisturizing solution that absorbs in
seconds. Our goal is to make it easy for more women to incorporate lotion into
their daily morning routines and keep their skin healthy.”

The Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer line includes three variants, each
available in a NET WT 6.5 OZ. can:

1. Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer Total Moisture^®: contains pure oat extract
and leaves skin feeling healthy and skin.

2. Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer Aloe Fresh: contains pure aloe and leaves
skin feeling healthy and fresh.

3. Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer Cocoa Radiant™: contains pure cocoa butter
and leaves skin feeling healthy and glowing.

Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer can be used daily and will be available at
food, drug and mass retailers nationwide in March 2013 (SRP $7.99). Visit
