Herbal extracts from lime and neem offer natural whitening and antibacterial solutions
Dubai, UAE – August 9, 2016: Dabur International has launched two new variants in its herbal range of mouthwash offering in the Middle East – Dabur Herb’l Neem Antibacterial and Dabur Herb’l Lime Whitening mouthwashes.
The new mouthwashes are especially formulated with natural extracts to fight bacteria, whiten teeth and leave a long-lasting freshness in the mouth. Neem, a tree commonly found in India and the Middle East, is known to fight bacteria and strengthen gums. Meanwhile, lime is a widely-accepted whitening agent and is also known for its deep cleansing properties and refreshingly cool taste.

With the new Dabur herbal mouthwashes, we are confident of capturing a wider segment of the oral care market that has trusted the efficacy of natural ingredients, as well as those who are looking for better value in their choice of brands.”
Dabur’s herbal range of mouthwash does not contain alcohol and fluoride and other harmful chemicals, a value-added proposition for the region’s increasingly discerning consumer market. Market research reveals mouthwash as the fastest-growing segment in oral care with a compound annual growth rate of 12 per cent over the last three years and an estimated 15 per cent share of the oral hygiene market.

Clearly, our mouthwash segment makes a pioneering contribution in providing a range of healthier options for consumers in the region with Dabur Neem Antibacterial and Dabur Lime Whitening mouthwashes,” Dhir noted.
