The Oral care market continues to evolve and today consumers are more open to trying new products that help provide them better oral health. Herbal Oral Care solutions continues to have strong acceptance among consumers.

Segments like mouthwash and dental floss are mainly driven by demands in urban markets. Since the penetration of these categories is very low, there is potential for growth. Riding on the herbal wave and being true to our legacy, we have now expanded our oral care range by introducing a new alcohol free range of herbal mouthwashes. Our range of mouthwashes complement our toothpastes and we aim to give our consumers a wholesome daily oral care ritual that will contribute towards their overall health and well-being”.
