Mumbai, May 28, 2014: Colgate-Palmolive (India) Limited, the market leader in Oral Care, launched a toothpaste with first of its kind technology – Colgate Maximum Cavity Protection Plus Sugar Acid Neutralizer TM.
Today, ever changing food habits and every day foods are increasingly leading to the prevalence of caries. There was a crying need to address this problem arising from sticky and sugary foods. The breakthrough technology of Sugar Acid NeutralizerTM provides the solution for the biggest cause of cavities – Sugar Acids.
Colgate showcased its latest technology at this forum, creating an interactive segment between Dr. Sandesh Mayekar eminent dentist from Mumbai, and Lara Dutta, a well-known Bollywood actress in her role as a mother concerned about the dental health of her daughter.
On the occasion, Ms. Prabha Parameswaran, Managing Director, Colgate-Palmolive (India) Limited, said “I am excited about our latest offering. A recent research revealed that 7 out of 10 children in India suffer from cavities. It is the number one oral care problem that consumers face in India today. The key reason for prevalence of cavities is the changing food habits. We now have a solution to this biggest problem in oral care, with Colgate Maximum Cavity Protection Plus Sugar Acid Neutralizer TM.”
Elaborating about this innovation, Dr. Shashank Potnis, Director, India Global Technology Centre, Colgate-Palmolive said, “At Colgate, it is our continuous endeavor to offer consumers the leading edge innovative dental solutions for better oral health. Launch of Colgate Maximum Cavity Protection plus Sugar Acid NeutralizerTM is one such step in this direction. It is a technological breakthrough in dental science based on the extensive scientific research conducted over a period of 8 years. This technology makes use of Arginine, an amino acid, also found in saliva and Fluoride, the clinically proven anti-cavity agent. It works in two ways. It neutralizes the harmful sugar acids, the main cause of cavity formation, while making teeth stronger with Fluoride. Various long term clinical studies have been conducted to prove anti-cavity benefits of this technology.”
