NEW DELHI: Dettol has partnered with the dedicated on-ground task force of Gurgaon Traffic Police, which tirelessly works towards improving traffic management for the residents. To add to the agony, the high pollution levels expose them to the risk of respiratory problems and allergies. In order to acknowledge and appreciate their effort, Dettol has provided the recently launched Dettol Air Masks to the on-ground task force to help them prevent harmful particles, bacteria, dust and pollen which they get exposed to.
With over 80 years of strong heritage in product innovation and creating new categories in the country, Dettol has played an integral role in providing better health and hygiene to consumers across the country.
A recent WHO report had revealed that 13 of the 20 most polluted cities in the world are in India. Particulate matter (or small airborne particles) is among the most detrimental of these pollutants. Studies link it with increased rates of chronic bronchitis, lung cancer and heart disease. Air pollution can potentially cause some dangerous allergies as well, including coughing, rhinitis, asthma, etc. Whether on a motorcycle or are just out for an evening jog, air pollution can pose a serious threat to a person’s health.
Navdeep Singh Virk , IPS Commissioner of Police – Gurgaon, said, “Dettol has supported us with Air Masks to keep 200 police personnel safe from pollution, when on duty in high traffic areas”
The Air Protect mask has been exclusively launched on Ecommerce currently.
