New Delhi – September 6, 2017: GSK group of companies’s Sensodyne launches ‘Faces of Sensitivity’, a digital campaign shot with the real consumers suffering from Tooth Sensitivity. With this latest campaign, Sensodyne aims to raise awareness of the condition and create a sense of urgency amongst the sufferers of tooth sensitivity that ignore the problem.

A series of videos on Facebook and YouTube, each edit enables the consumer to self-diagnose their condition through a very simple, 2 minute Sensitivity Check up.

Anurita Chopra, Area Marketing Director, Oral Health, GSK Consumer Healthcare said, “Tooth Sensitivity is a common condition in India. Almost every 3rd Indian adult suffers from it. With our hectic lifestyle and prevalent eating habits, the incidences are on the up. Still, a large majority of sufferers keep coping up with the discomfort and in some cases give up on their favorite foods. With this new campaign, we want to induce a change in this behavior. Faces of Sensitivity is an incisive demonstration of what a sensitivity sufferer goes through and hence creates a strong connect.”

She further added, “With the Sensitivity Checkup we are also helping people self-evaluate the problem through a simple test”

Therefore, for us the challenge was to show the impact of Tooth Sensitivity on a sufferer’s life in an engaging way whilst staying true to the brand values. Faces of Sensitivity is a unique creative approach that captures real everyday moments of the discomfort that a sufferer goes through because of tooth sensitivity. This is our way of impressing upon the sufferer, the need to take immediate action”
