Following the introduction of a pH-balanced formula last October, Malaysia’s #1 Germ Protection Brand*, Dettol, launched its newly-improved Dettol Healthy Fresh Body Wash range today at Capri by Fraser, Bangsar South. The New Dettol Healthy Fresh range now comes with 12-hour odour protection and longer lasting freshness. On top of the re-launch, Dettol also unveiled a new variant; Dettol Lasting Fresh with cucumber extracts. The media launch was attended by Dr. Steven Chow, Senior Consultant Dermatologist, celebrity mum Nana Mahazan and RB’s corporate partners.
The new launch reiterates Dettol’s understanding of consumer needs and the importance of good personal hygiene to provide the best protection against germs and bacteria. With Dettol’s signature anti-bacterial properties and newly-improved formulation, Dettol’s latest new variant, Dettol Lasting Fresh protects you from odour-causing germs for up to 12 hours! On top, the range now comes in a brand-new transparent PET bottles packaging that not only has an eye-catching look to it, but also carries a premium quality look. Trusted by families and medical professionals for generations, Dettol Healthy Fresh Body Wash is the ideal body wash for every Malaysian family so they can be 100% sure of protection from germs and bacteria** while feeling fresh all day long.
Rakesh Kumar Singh, Marketing Manager of Dettol, RB Malaysia and Singapore, stated “Dettol as the trusted leader in disinfection and hygiene has been at the forefront to protect the health of our consumers since 1932. We are committed to providing better solutions by regularly launching new product innovations. We are especially proud to launch the new Dettol Lasting Fresh variant, which has been conceptualized and tested among Malaysian consumers and is now being launched across the globe. It is a variant which is especially relevant for Malaysians as our market survey revealed that up to 83% of them loved the product. As a result, we believe that Dettol Lasting Fresh Body Wash is the perfect addition to every household to enjoy protection and freshness that lasts up to 12 hours.”
Speaking at the launch of Dettol Healthy Fresh range, Dr. Steven Chow, Senior Consultant Dermatologist talked about the importance of personal hygiene in a hot and humid environment like Malaysia. “Perspiring and body odour are common issues among Malaysians. Despite what many people think, perspiration (or sweat) is actually odourless. However, when perspiration stays on the skin’s surface and interacts with bacteria on the body, the bacteria breaks down the perspiration into fatty acids, which produces an unpleasant odour. Good personal hygiene, especially with anti-bacterial body washes can help fight germs and prevent body odour” he advised.
Also at the launch was celebrity, host and mother-of-two, Ms Nana Mahazan. For her, keeping her family protected is one of the most important roles as a mother and wife. “As a family, we live a very active lifestyle and we love outdoor activities. I really want to encourage my kids to go out there and explore, instead of just sitting at home playing games on gadgets. So, I want to ensure that my family is well-protected and still smell good when we are out and about. With Dettol Healthy Fresh Body Wash, I can stop worrying about bacteria and germs! I really love the new Dettol Lasting Fresh Body Wash – the soothing cucumber scent makes me feel like I have just stepped out of a spa!”
