T.G.I.F: Teeth and Gum Indulging in Fun!
Pamper your teeth and gums with self-fizzing tablets and in-pocket teeth cleaning wipes.
What does traveling light, being plastic-free, enjoying wine and indulging in matt lipsticks have to do with oral care?
Data from the United Nation of World Tourism Organization shows that travel & tourism and related spends in Asia Pacific has increased sizably. In 2018, Asia Pacific recorded 343 million international tourist arrivals, an increase of 6% over 2017. People are traveling to different cities, countries and continents much more than before. Leisure/recreation/holidays form 53% of travel, visiting friends, relatives, health and religion form 27%, business and professional travel forms 13% and another 7% fall under non-specified travel. In all categories of travel, data again shows that there is an increasing need for packing light and carrying water-less, portable and easy to use products.
Oral hygiene forms one of the key and basic necessities that people carry during travel. The traditional toothpaste and mouthwashes are in semisolid or liquid forms and inconvenient to carry. One time use packs add to plastic waste generation and waste of product too. Additionally, consumers are looking for oral care products that are milder on gums and teeth, without alcohol content. They prefer health benefits rather than just cleansing.
For city people who are always on the move and dine out regularly, for people who smoke and want to smell fresh in office and for meetings and for the travelling population, easy-to-carry, quick-to-use products which can meet unmet requirements of current conventional toothpaste and mouthwash is an increasing need.
