One Direction now is front and center on three Colgate products: a manual toothbrush, an automatic toothbrush, and MaxFresh toothpaste.
The major players are now offering consumers a range of prices from which to choose beginning at $19.99 for Sunbeam's PlaqueFree automatic toothbrush. The sole exception is Sonicare, whose prices don't dip below $89.99, according to the company.
In the meantime, an automatic toothbrush said to be just as effective at removing plaque as the Oral-B and Interplak units, yet costing one-third less, was introduced late last year by the Teledyne Water Pik division of Teledyne Inc.
In the personal care area, Sunbeam is introducing the PediSpa, a foot therapy unit launched under the "Health at Home" banner, the Powerplay Mustache and Beard trimmer, the Heat Plus Gel heating pad, an Oster-branded Silver Series adjustable blade clipper and the PlaqueAttack Rechargeable Automatic Toothbrush.
The most attention is going to oral care, with automatic toothbrushes and flossers.
