National, September 15, 2020: For 100 years, Harpic has been working towards providing clean and hygienic sanitation solutions across the world. Being a leader in the toilet care category in India, Harpic has been pioneering the cause of hygiene and sanitation in Indian homes for decades.
Both, Harpic Toilet Cleaner and Harpic Bathroom cleaner have been tested by internationally accredited external laboratories and have been proven to effectively kill >99.9% germs and the Sars-Cov-2 (Covid-19) virus when used undiluted.
Harpic, with its new brand campaign- ‘Saaf Nahi Swachh’, is educating consumers on superior hygiene and disinfection of toilets and bathrooms at home to protect their family’s health & well-being.
Sukhleen Aneja, CMO & Marketing Director, RB Hygiene, South Asia said, “Over the last 100 years, Harpic has been a champion in providing access to clean and hygienic sanitation solutions across the world. Its communication has been focused on driving behavior change. With our new ‘Saaf Nahi Swachh’ campaign, we’d like consumers to adopt superior disinfection at home to keep their loved ones protected.
Harpic’s range of Toilet and Bathroom cleaners not only provide superior cleaning and disinfection but have also been found effective at killing the Covid-19 virus while being extremely water efficient vs commonly used detergents.”
Akshay Kumar, Actor as the brand advocate commented, “Being associated with Harpic has helped me reach out to Indian audiences and educate the Indian audiences them on the need for optimum hygiene and sanitation. During the ongoing pandemic, where everyone is aware of the need to wash hands, disinfect floors and surfaces, cleaning toilets & bathrooms that can have illness causing germs is equally important. I am certain that this campaign will be a message for consumers not just to clean but also to disinfect their bathrooms and toilets, thus avoiding the spread of infection.”
