"We are honored to receive this esteemed award and are committed to providing consumers with new and innovative products to maintain strong, healthy teeth for a lifetime," said Patrick Seiffert, Senior Brand Manager at GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare.  "Aquafresh iso-active toothpaste is a first-of-its-kind oral health care product, and its unique format can help influence the way consumers address their current oral care routines."

iso-active toothpaste is a breakthrough technology in toothpaste, delivered in a novel canister format with a gel-to-foam action as a result of the inclusion of isopentane.  Isopentane responds to increases in temperature caused by the warmth of the mouth.  Its delivery system disperses its active ingredients quickly, penetrating those hard-to-reach areas of the mouth, providing overall oral health. Generating twice the foam volume as ordinary toothpaste, iso-active toothpaste's active foam penetrates deep, surrounding and protecting the whole tooth against cavities, reaching between the surfaces of the teeth to provide a whole mouth clean.
