ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, NJ (March 3, 2016) - Unilever's U.S. Personal Care brands are celebrating the diversity and style of U.S. Hispanics with their new #100PorCientoTu campaign that promotes self-expression and individuality.

"Latinos are trendsetters, whose personal style is their unique calling card," said Brian Critz, Brand Director, Multicultural for Unilever U.S. "With the #100PorCientoTu campaign, we want to highlight the diversity and dynamism of the Latino community, especially among millennials, whose identity is deeply tied to their culture, self-image and aspirations."

The #100PorCientoTu campaign is partnering with celebrity stylist Leonardo Rocco, celebrity groomer Marcos "Reggae" Smith, international plus-size model and influencer Denise Bidot and other notable influencers to provide beauty and style inspiration.
