Some of its original commercials featured an animated woman who evokes Eve in the Garden of Eden. The brand was reintroduced in 1995 when they launched their "Yes!" commercials. Famous late 1990s-early 2000s commercials featured Ruth Westheimer, in which she would let her try their body wash. In 2001, Fruit Fusions was introduced. In September 2003, they introduced a new formula line containing Hawafena. The brand was reintroduced in 2006, featuring scent names similar to Ben & Jerry's flavor names. The 1995 formulas were reintroduced in 2013, this time improved, bringing back a new version of the "Yes!" commercial set on an airplane.
