Sensodyne launches new Rapid Relief that keeps up with the younger generation’s oral healthcare problem

Research has shown that as many as one in three people may suffer from tooth hypersensitivity or pangingilo, with prevalence peaking at 30 to 40 years of age. But in a study, two out of five younger adults, between 18 and 25 years old, otherwise known as “Generation Z” or “Gen-Z”, now experience the onset of tooth sensitivity.


Tooth sensitivity is a common, irreversible problem caused by dentine exposure brought about by attrition from tooth grinding or jaw clenching, erosion from dietary acids, or abrasion from brushing too vigorously. However, it can be managed with proper dental hygiene.

“The youth of today enjoy a dynamic lifestyle. They are highly mobile and always multitasking. As such, oral health may not always be a top priority. In fact, more than 50% of them do not consult their dentist on problems such as tooth sensitivity and find ways to work around it instead,” says Michael Mallari, GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare Philippines Expert Sales Manager. “However, for Filipino Gen Zers, who constantly connect with friends and family through shared meals, experiencing pangingilo is a major distraction and a problem that needs to be addressed. Instead of enjoying and being able to try out new food, they experience pain and discomfort that takes their attention away from the moments that matter.”


In a recent event dubbed “Face the Race”, leading oral healthcare brand Sensodyne, launched the new Sensodyne  Rapid Relief toothpaste which  provides sufferers with speed and efficiency in beating tooth sensitivity. “We understand that bonding over meals is a culturally intrinsic activity and is highly valued among Filipino youths,” says Ritesh Pandey, GlaxoSmithKline Philippines Consumer Healthcare General Manager. “With Sensodyne Rapid Relief, those who suffer from pangingilo can experience immediate relief from the first time they brush so they can continue enjoying their food-bonding experiences with minimal distraction from their teeth.”

Tooth sensitivity is a dental condition that causes discomfort or pain in teeth when encountering certain substances and temperatures. It occurs when the dentine underneath the tooth enamel becomes exposed, revealing small holes called tubules.

When the fluid inside these tiny tubules encounters something cold, hot, sweet, or sour, it can trigger the nerves inside the tooth and cause a short, sharp pain.

When used as directed, the unique technology in Sensodyne Rapid Relief toothpaste offers fast relief and long lasting protection to beat sensitivity. It has an active ingredient called stannous fluoride which enables faster blockage of the tubules. It also has an optimised polymer system that creates a gel-like scaffold which holds the stannous fluoride in place, preventing it from being washed away in the mouth.

The Sensodyne Rapid Relief toothpaste retails at P208 SRP and is available at leading stores nationwide. For more information about Sensodyne Rapid Relief, visit sensodyne.com.ph.

Stop the common cold in its tracks! Stop the common cold in its tracks!

With the rainy season fast approaching, the risk of catching a cold or the flu is not far behind.


As much as you want your kids to experience the happiness of playing in the rain, your motherly instinct kicks in and keeps you worried that they might catch the flu or a cold. Studies show that an adult can get (2) two to (4) four episodes of the common cold annually while kids can get (6) six to (12) twelve episodes, but you can prevent that from happening! As every wonder wo-mom knows, a little prevention goes a long way. We've got you covered with seven items you need to have to help stomp out the sniffles.

1. A bottle full of water
Drinking lots of water will help decongest airways and keep the throat moist. Keeping your family hydrated is one of the best things you can do for their bodies while their immune system is gearing up for a fight against the cold.

2. A pack of immunity-boosting snacks
Consuming immunity-boosting food items on a regular basis will help prevent many illnesses including the cold and flu. If you are keen on living a healthy life, chow down on fresh fruits, yoghurt, and other healthy snacks. Doing so can save you and your kids from an unnecessary visit to the doctor.

3. A handy-dandy hand sanitizer
Here’s another thing that can keep the entire family healthy: hand sanitizers! Bacteria and viruses are everywhere so it’s better for your kids to always have a bottle of hand sanitizer or even a good ole’ bottle of isopropyl alcohol in the bag. Keeping their hands clean is one of the best ways to prevent the spread of illnesses.


4. A lot of tissue paper
When the cold and flu season hits, you’re going to need more tissue paper than you think. Always have a box of tissue paper because “lots” is never enough for a family. Just always remember to dispose of them properly and clean your hands after blowing your nose. By following this you and your family can help effectively stop the spread of viruses.

5. A stylish scarf
Of course, you’d want your family to be protected from allergens and viruses outside your home. Give them something to cover themselves with! May it be a nice handkerchief, a stylish scarf, or a sterile face mask, you should always be prepared most especially when the fambam is going to a crowded place.

6. A ton of patience, love, and understanding
Being a mom to sick kids can really be a test of patience. They all have their own quirks and nursing them can really wear you down so it’s always good to prepare yourself mentally and emotionally for the battle. Remember to ask for help, pray for love and patience, and most importantly, keep yourself healthy.

7. A trusted cold defense nasal spray


Aside from having tons of patience and understanding, you need to have a trusted companion in keeping your family healthy. Hold the cold off before it worsens by using one of the leading and most trusted antiseptic brand in the country that is BETADINE®4,5,6. It has a whole line of upper respiratory care products that are proven to be safe and effective including BETADINE® Cold Defense Nasal Spray.



By using BETADINE® Cold Defense Nasal Spray at the onset of sickness, you can shorten the duration of cold symptoms by up to two (2) days and keep the viruses from spreading further and the colds from worsening. Its formulation includes Carragelose®, a natural active ingredient that has antiviral effects and is clinically proven to eliminate 99% of the common cold and flu viruses such as rhinovirus, coronavirus, and influenza A virus which are common causes of respiratory infections. BETADINE® Cold Defense Nasal Spray is recommended for children 1 year old and above. Plus, it is natural, steroid free, drug free, and has contamination-proof nozzle.

Don’t let common cold and flu hinder your family from creating many wonderful memories together. Always remember to stock up on BETADINE® Cold Defense Nasal Spray for Kids and Adults and stop cold and flu-like illnesses from the get-go.

Go Mango introduces unique mango-based treats!

As we all know that mangoes are incredibly versatile as desserts. Its natural sweet flavor makes for a perfect topping, added tidbits, and it’s even good eaten on its own. But if you think you’ve seen all the possibilities this delicious fruit has to offer, local soft serve and mango connoisseur Go Mango begs to differ.


As the summer comes to a close, the coming days are about to get cooler with their new products: introducing, the Mango Milk with Brown Sugar Boba, Mango Cheesecake, and Mango Chocnut Cream.


The Mango Milk with Brown Sugar Boba is their unique take on the milktea craze, and quite possibly, your new favorite drink! Think fresh, sweet, and irresistably lip-smacking mangoes served with a thick froth of full cream milk, deliciouly complemented by warm boba soaked in muscovado sugar to bring out its natural, toasted sugar flavour that we simply can’t get enough. Give it a little shake and all of the flavors and elements mix together in one delicious, refreshing cup. Trust us, it’s definitely a must-try!


For the dessert lovers, the Mango Cheesecake is heavenly. Go Mango’s signature soft serve ice cream is topped with heaps of grated cheese and fresh mangoes, served in between oven-baked cheesecake crust with cream, making it two mouth-watering desserts in one decadent cup.


Last but definitely not the least, the Mango Chocnut Cream is an ode to our childhood favorite. This delightful treat is made up of layers of fresh mango slices, soft serve ice cream, and of course, the nutty goodness of Chocnut.


And because Go Mango is all about that premium dessert experience, they also have sundaes, shakes, and mango milk beverages. Among the best-sellers are the Mango Graham Sundae and the Mango Yakult Shake. They have more delicious offerings launching soon, so stay tuned!

Go Mango will also be opening two new branches in SM Manila this June 11 and Century City Mall on July. For more details on the menu and branches, visit www.facebook.com/gomangoph.
