colored fabrics in all washing cycles, therefore
retaining colors more compared to ordinary detergents
in every wash.”
Roy explained further that, “to reach our targets, who
are mostly female in their prime who are very vibrant,
confident, jazzy, fashionable, stylish and most
importantly pride themselves in being colorful, we have
conceptualized a campaign themed ‘alive with color’
and we shall showcase colors in all of our touch
points campaigns on radio, BRT, press and digital.”
