PROVO, Utah Orabrush, the tongue cleaner that is designed to help cure bad breath, has named former Procter & Gamble executive Jeff Davis as its new CEO.
The company also announced an infusion of capital by 2x Consumer Products Growth Partners, which has invested in such companies as gDiapers eco-friendly diapers, Tasty Bite Indian foods, Eagle snacks and Wellness & Old Mother Hubbard all-natural foods for pets.
Davis joins Orabrush after retiring from P&G with 23 years of service. Most recently, he led global operations of the worldwide Wella business as VP and general manager of P&G Salon Professional.

Milani Hair goes great lengths
LOS ANGELES Actress and former "Deal or No Deal" model Leyla Milani, with a team of hair care professionals, has developed do-it-yourself, clip-in-and-go hair extensions.
Her new venture, Milani Hair, is an "As Seen on TV" hit after its recent nationwide rollout via two-minute spots on cable and network television. In addition, Milani Hair now is available at select Planet Beauty stores in California.
Milani Hair extensions give women of all ages instant length, volume, fullness, and even color and highlights with the snap of a clip — literally. Each set includes seven individual pieces, measuring at roughly 20 in. in length, and the clips are matched to each hair color. The hair is 100% Remy-grade human hair, which means it is long-lasting and heat- and color-friendly.
Milani Hair comes in 10 different shades and is priced at about $180 (three payments of $59.99). With the proper care, Milani Hair should last well up to a year, according to the company. Milani Hair can be found online at MilaniHairTV.com.
