P&G rolls out Crest Whitestrips Advanced Seal
CINCINNATI Procter & Gamble has announced the introduction of its new Crest Whitestrips Advanced Seal, an adhesive formulation that temporarily molds the strip to users’ teeth.
“Because this revolutionary new technology allows for a great fit and seal, users can have the confidence to whiten anywhere, anytime. Whether you’re on the go, talking on the phone or drinking water, new Crest Whitestrips Advanced Seal allows you to go about your day without interruption, all while achieving your most beautiful, whiter smile,” stated Sunny Jain, associate marketing director, North American Oral Care at P&G.
The new strips feature four layers in one thin, flexible strip. A special outer layer holds the strip securely on teeth. A whitening layer delivers the same whitening ingredient used by professionals, while the inner mesh layer keeps the whitening ingredient firmly on teeth and prevents the gel from spreading to other areas of the mouth. The final release liner provides the strips with stable backing for easy application. The strips are to be worn for 30 minutes a day for two weeks.
Crest Whitestrips Advanced Seal have a suggested retail price of $45. Each kit contains 14 doses of whitening.
