ADVERTISMENT

 COLGATE:-

Colgate has a toothpaste and toothbrush mascot for children's entertainment,


"Dr. Rabbit", which has also been used in three tapes that teach about dental
health and advertise Colgate toothpaste.

"Gardol" was actually their trademark for the ingredient Sodium lauroyl
sarcosinate (and identified as such on the package and in their advertising),
which today is an ingredient in Arm & Hammer's "Advance White" toothpaste,
minus the "Gardol" identification.

 PEPSODENT:-

Marketing efforts to sell Pepsodent toothpaste were very successful, and


sales skyrocketed thanks to a well-known slogan of, "You'll wonder where the
yellow went when you brush your teeth with Pepsodent." Entertainers also
helped give the toothpaste a boost. It was referred to in a popular 1949 musical
called "South Pacific." Singer Cole Porter also mentioned the tasty paste several
times in his recordings, and Pepsodent was the sponsor of the famous 1929
radio show "Amos and Andy."

CASE STUDY

In the New Pepsodent v Colgate case, HLL advertised its toothpaste


‘New Pepsodent’ as “102% better than the leading toothpaste”. In the television
advertisement, samples of saliva are taken from two boys, one who has brushed
with the new Pepsodent while another has brushed with leading toothpaste”.
The saliva of “the leading toothpaste” shows larger number of germs. While the
sample was being taken from the boys, they were asked the name of the
toothpaste with which they had brushed in the morning. One boy said
Pepsodent, the response of the second boy was muted, and however, lip
movement of the boy would indicate that he was saying “Colgate”. Also, when
the muting was done, there was a sound of the jingle used in the Colgate
advertisement. According to the Commission, the word toothpaste had become
synonymous with Colgate over the years and a reference to “leading brand” was
to Colgate. Thus it became a case of Comparative Advertisement which led to
the disparagement of Colgate’s products.
CUSTOMER RESPONSE

Which is better? Colgate or Pepsodent? And how many


times do you brush daily?

1. Well, what I would suggest here is, Colgate has always been the best
among all, the rest have come up now, but Colgate is a very old
toothpaste manufacturing company since British ruled India, so old is
always gold for sure, one should always have or make a habit to brush
twice, once in the morning & then after dinner before going to sleep for
sure.

2. There are different types of toothpastes under one brand name. I tend to
rely on Colgate, however. Dentists highly recommend brushing in the
morning and before you go to bed. Also, if possible, you should brush
after each meal if you want ultimate oral health. Brushing at least twice a
day also greatly decreases the chances of obtaining bad breath.

3. You need familiarize yourself with the contents of toothpaste. Fluoride

does more harm than it does good. I am not suggesting that you stop
brushing your teeth; however, I am suggesting that you begin to
familiarize yourself with the chemicals that you poison your body almost
religiously.

4. I have never tried those. I use only Crest. But.....Tooth brushing is

necessary at least twice a day: once in the morning before breakfast and
once in the evening, after dinner. The main goal is the complete removal
of the bacterial plaque and not the number of brushings.
5. Brushing once a day does get rid of left over food in your mouth that

causes odors, plague and bad breath. Food gets lodged in between your
teeth thus causing stinky breath.

6. I use Pepsodent. I do use Colgate on occasions, but i have found that

Pepsodent works better. For instance, i needed to whiten my teeth


because they were not looking too good. Then, i put on a glob of pep.
Toothpaste on my toothbrush and my teeth were white. (make sure u floss
and use mouth wash)

7. Colgate is better then Pepsodent according to my experience.


Brush twice daily, once in the morning n once b4 sleeping.
Have healthy teeth...........

8. Personally I prefer Colgate. And u should ideally brush after every meal.
9. I think Colgate. And it’s better if you brush after every meal.

Or at least twice a day as in day and night.

10. Dear I am not using Colgate I am using Pepsodent and daily I twice use

it.

11. Pepsodent for me... Because I used it too... Regularly I brush my tooth

twice a day... After I wake up n before I sleep...
