Pantene PRO-V logo

Pantene is a brand of hair care products owned by Procter & Gamble. The product line was first introduced in Europe in 1947 by Hoffman-LaRoche of Switzerland, which branded the name based on panthenol as a shampoo ingredient. It was purchased by Procter & Gamble (P&G) in 1985 in order for P&G to compete in the "beauty product" market rather than only functional products.[1]
The brand's best-known product became the conditioning shampoo Pantene Pro-V (Pantene Pro-Vitamin). The product became most noted due to an advertising campaign in the late 1980s in which fashion models said, "Don't hate me because I'm beautiful."[2][3] Kelly LeBrock gained notoriety as the first television spokeswoman to speak the line.[4] The line was criticized by feminists and became a pop-culture catchphrase for "annoying" narcissistic behavior.[5][6]
