Oral Care for Diabetics is pioneered by Colgate-Palmolive


Colgate-Palmolive (India) Limited has researched and developed a special toothpaste for people for diabetes, Colgate for Diabetics, through a collaboration with Dentists and Diabetes experts. This launch aims to bring attention to the bidirectional link between Diabetes management and Oral Health management and provide an effective solution for oral health problems faced by diabetics in an effort to help overall diabetes management. A prominent research institution in the field of Diabetes—Research Society for the Study of Diabetes in India (RSSDI) and a leading oral health institution—Indian Society of Periodontology (ISP) came together to study the link between Diabetes and Oral Health. This study has been jointly published by these institutions with clear findings that the right oral care solutions, in addition to lifestyle changes, are crucial in overall diabetes management. Colgate for Diabetics toothpaste is a clinically proven formula with a unique blend of ayurvedic ingredients such as Madhunashini, Neem, Jamun Seed Extract, and Amla. This special formula kills anaerobic bacteria in the mouth which is the root cause for many oral health problems for diabetics. This unique Ayurvedic blend is FDA approved and is available for sale at pharmacies both online and offline. Dr Ashish Jain, ex-President, Indian Society of Periodontology & lead author of ‘Good Clinical Practice Guidelines for the Management of Periodontal Disease in Patients with Diabetes’, states, “As the evidence is increasingly pointing to inflammation as a common linkage mechanism in oral health and diabetes, ways and means to address the resolution of inflammation is the need of the hour. With the evolution of an oral care technology that has a potential anti-germ and anti-inflammatory properties, this seems to find an addressal now. However, more published clinical data in this space would further reinforce the efficacy of such technologies.” Colgate-Palmolive India, as the leading oral care brand in India, has endeavored to spread awareness and enable easier access to oral care across the country for many years, a commitment encapsulated in its Keep India Smiling Mission. Through continuous innovations and dedication, the brand strongly believes in providing consumers a better future they can smile about.
