Commenting on this development Neetal Narang, President - Communications & Corporate Affairs - JHS Svendgaard Brands Limited said “Knowing that kids are our end consumers, we’ve been extremely conscious of every product that we develop and associate with. Kids are a sensitive category and mothers are highly cautious and selective while choosing for their tiny-tots. 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 added.
Recently, JHS signed Tiger Shroff as the brand ambassador for aquawhite. The aquawhite kids' range is already available across top e-commerce platforms like aquawhite.in, Amazon, Flipkart, Firstcry, Paytm etc. The brand currently enjoys good traction in the Northern market. The company is now set to launch their range of products in the Western and other markets.
In addition to just signing new brands and a brand ambassador, the company has their media plan for the next few months in place. The TVC with Tiger Shroff has been shot that will air soon, along with dedicated ad campaigns.
