With the launch of Sensodyne Whitening, GSK aims to end this life of compromising and offer the dual benefit of sensitivity relief along with restoring natural whiteness of their teeth to the discerning Indian consumer.
Sensodyne Whitening will play a role in expanding GSK’s footprint in the Indian Oral Care Industry. Shot in London, in three different languages, each TVC features an actual consumer and is a genuine, unscripted account of their experience with the brand.
Staying true to the Sensodyne style of authentic communication, this is the first time ever that Sensodyne is using Consumer testimonials for TV advertising in India. With this launch, GREY group India and GREY London have set a good example of partnership between group offices in handling campaigns with multiple stakeholders and complex logistics.
Anurita Chopra, Area Marketing Director, ISC Oral Health, GSK Consumer Healthcare said, “GSK Consumer Healthcare has always endeavored to develop new products catering to the constantly changing needs of its consumers. A lot of sensitivity sufferers cope with sensitive teeth because they believe their regular toothpaste gives them more important benefits like whitening. Sensodyne Whitening toothpaste, will benefit in sensitive teeth and help bring back the natural whiteness of teeth on daily usage. Being a consumer preferred and expert endorsed brand globally, we are confident that this largest selling variant globally will be well received by our consumers.”
Samir Datar, Vice President & Office Head, Grey group India said, “The category communication codes for a whitening oral care product have always been about vanity and dialling up the glamour quotient. For us, it was important to keep the Sensodyne brand character of authenticity and trust in mind, and hence showcase work that spoke of a more intrinsic motivation for such a product, which was inner happiness and self-confidence. To drive home this point better, we also used real consumer testimonials, for the first time for brand Sensodyne in India.”
Bikram Bindra, Vice President and Strategic Planning Head, Grey group Delhi said, “The major unlock for us was to recognize the need for multiple benefits in today’s demanding consumer, and the delivery of the brand and the product on the same. Our task thus was to communicate the dual promise of new Sensodyne Whitening and showing how one doesn’t have to compromise one oral care need over the other.”
A high decibel, six week media plan is kick started with spots across all the major GECs, English Entertainment, Movies and News Channels.
