Mr. Mukul Deoras, Chairman at Colgate-Palmolive (India) Ltd, said, “In an environment of macro challenges and softening consumption, the Company was able to deliver balanced growth in the toothpaste category while the toothbrush category witnessed a softening in demand. Calibrated pricing and focus on cost optimization initiatives and efficiencies helped deliver consistent gross margins and EBITDA.
While the Company crossed the Rs. 5000 Cr mark, we continue to remain focused on our core brands and strengthen our innovation initiatives for the future. We relaunched Colgate Strong Teeth with the new brand proposition of “Strong Teeth, Strong You” with its unique "Calcium Boost" formula that facilitates the replenishment of natural calcium to your teeth thereby strengthening them.
In the whitening space, we recently launched New Colgate Visible White O2 with a revolutionary new Active Oxygen technology that gives whiter teeth in just 3 days*. Our launch campaign #SmileOutLoud encourages every young Indian to express their unique beauty through their radiant white smiles.

We also relaunched Vedshakti toothpaste with a new improved flavor that has better sensorials and unique combination of 5 Ayurvedic ingredients i.e. Neem (provides gum care benefits), Clove (for teeth strengthening), Amla (for Anti-germ properties), Tulsi (for Freshness) and Honey ( for Gum Massage).

As an organization we continue to live our values and remain unwavering in our focus to improve the health and wellbeing of our consumers and delivering shareholder value”
