Singapore (PRWEB) July 15, 2011
Yet another innovation as a result of KOTEX® brand’s intimate understanding of women’s bodies and the lifestyles they lead today, the all-new range of KOTEX® Fresh Plus Liners is set to revolutionise the way women care for their V-Zones as it effectively redefines the possibilities of feminine care and protection.
Unveiled today - Ultra V-Care is the first ever premium liners to be clinically proven to help inhibit the growth of yeast and some bad bacteria while Gentle Care is the first pH balanced liner in South East Asia that is also dermatologically tested to help prevent allergies and irritation. Adding on to the range is Fresh Plus Designs, liners featuring colourful designs inspired by nature. With a mild and natural scent to help soothe the senses, these liners not only keep the V-Zone feeling clean and dry but are also designed to keep women feeling fresh all day long.
KOTEX® Fresh Plus Liners delivers unmatched comfort thanks to KOTEX® COMFORT-FLEX* technology which allows for flexibility in movement and the breathable baffle which encourages air circulation around the V-Zone.
The new KOTEX® Fresh Plus Liners herald a V-zone revolution for women as they are now able to take even better care of themselves,” said Rachel Goh, Brand Manager. Rachel explained that Ultra V-Care is ideal for women seeking greater protection against infections, having been tested to successfully inhibit the growth of yeast and some bad bacteria#.
Adding on, “This is particularly important, given that three out of four women will develop a yeast infection at least once in their lifetime** ” Good V-Zone care is essential to a woman’s complete well being, which is why we believe that these innovations make KOTEX® Fresh Plus Liners an indispensable part in her daily health routine.” Rachel said.
Meanwhile, women with more sensitive skin can opt for Gentle Care, which is pH balanced and dermatologically tested to help prevent allergies and irritations.
Also unveiled today is brand ambassador and user of KOTEX® Fresh Plus Liners, Ginette Chittick. With her are Health and fitness expert Kayla Duke and Gynaecologist and Urogynaecologist Dr Christopher Chong.
Fashion and lifestyle icon Ginette Chittick used to wear panty liners infrequently, only during menstruation, with tampons. After trying out KOTEX® Fresh Plus Liners for a month, Ginette says, “I had the misconception that panty liners are bulky and unsuitable for the warm weather in Singapore. After using KOTEX® Fresh Plus Liners, I find them very thin and comfortable and enjoy the feeling of cleanliness. I especially like KOTEX® Fresh Plus Gentle Care Liners, knowing that my skin will stay protected throughout wear with the pH balance feature. The best part – KOTEX® Fresh Plus Liners complements my fashion sense and don’t show through my skinny jeans and tights.”
KOTEX® Fresh Plus Liners user, Kayla Duke, who is a fitness expert and Group Exercise Manager at California Fitness, is pleasantly surprised by her experience with KOTEX® Fresh Plus Liners, having not tried liners prior. “I like how thin and comfortable the KOTEX® Fresh Plus Liners feel. With my active lifestyle, the barely there feel of KOTEX® Fresh Plus Liners is important. Given my long hours in the gym, I appreciate the benefits of KOTEX® Fresh Plus Ultra V-Care, keeping me fresh and clean throughout my dance and fitness routines. As a health and fitness advocate, I believe wearing liners with proven protective benefits should be part of women’s body care regime” says Kayla.
Dr Christopher Chong advises, “The V-Zone is vulnerable to bacteria and yeast infections, which is why women should keep area clean and dry. Using panty liners, feminine wash or wipes may help women who face these problems. As the V-Zone is a highly sensitive area, it is important for women be educated on various feminine care options available and select products that are suitable for them, especially in consultation with their gynaecologist.”
KOTEX® Fresh Plus Liners are available now at SGD 3.95 per pack, at all leading supermarkets and pharmacies.
