NEW YORK, May 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Colgate Total® has partnered with nutritionist and entrepreneur Chef Lala, yoga instructor and entrepreneur Yudy Arias and dentist Karent Sierra, to launch its Simplemente Saludable ("Simply Healthy") program. The six-month initiative kicks off this month and empowers Latinas to renew their lifestyle with a focus on well-being, physical and oral health.
Chef Lala, an accomplished chef, cookbook author, food stylist and consultant, will educate Latinas on ways to enjoy traditional Latin cuisine in nutritious ways. Arias, a celebrity yoga instructor will be providing tips and tricks on how to kick off your day with at-home exercise routines. Sierra, a bilingual, Miami-based dentist and Colgate spokeswoman, will share oral health routine tips for a healthier smile. The ladies will create simple, healthy tips that will be published on Colgate's bilingual Twitter account, @Sonrisa Colgate.
The campaign will also support National Women's Health Week (NWHW), May 8-14, 2016, with a Twitter party hosted by an expert panel to discuss women's empowerment and healthy lifestyles. For NWHW, Colgate Total® is inviting women across the country to pledge to Refresh, Restore and Repair their health. To join the movement, Colgate Total® is encouraging consumers to share a "healthy selfie" on social media using #MyColgateSelfie, #NWHW and #SimplementeSaludable. A "healthy selfie" is simply a photo of any activity that contributes to overall health and wellness, whether it's enjoying a nutritious snack, getting in a quick yoga session, enjoying the outdoors with family, or using Colgate Total® to help improve oral health.
"Our expert panel of influencers are all successful women who have built amazing careers by empowering others to be their healthiest," said Carla Kelly, General Manager of Multicultural Marketing at Colgate-Palmolive. "We're incredibly excited to launch the Simplemente Saludable program to empower Latinas nationwide to have a refreshed mindset, an active body, and a healthy dental regimen."
