Commenting on this development, Neetal Narang, President - Communications & Corporate Affairs - JHS Svendgaard Brands Limited said “We have not only designed and developed toothbrushes but have created a tool for every mother to make their kids brush their teeth for 2 minutes, recommended time by dentists, all the while making brushing a fun activity rather than a boring routine. As far as toothpaste goes, we’ve been extremely cautious to make them fluoride-free. The fluoride content in the water in India is already high, and for growing kids it's never advisable to consume fluoride in excess. We have done a lot of research on our products especially with the taste of the toothpaste.”
“Most kids don’t like to brush their teeth, which is one of the major concerns among the parents. With our products being unique and innovative, to add to the excitement, we’ve brought kids favourite characters and other interesting concepts & value adds like colourful handles, hygiene cap etc. we are definite that brushing is going to be fun for the kids.” she further added.
Aquawhite is not the first company to come up with this idea and take this step. American oral care companies like Colgate and Pepsodent had also released various character based toothbrushes and toothpastes to attract children and achieve the target of proper oral habits among them.
