STAMFORD, Conn., July 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Who ever said tooth brushing needs to be boring? For more than two decades, Philips Sonicare, the power toothbrush brand coveted by Dental Professionals and celebrities alike, has been making the every day task of taking care of your teeth and gums a little more exciting. Now, with the launch of its latest addition to the sleek, top-of-the-line DiamondClean range – Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Amethyst Edition – fashion and beauty mavens can bring a little runway style to their oral care routine.
The new Philips Sonicare DiamondClean features a bold color and metallic sheen that combines two hot trends in the fashion world: deep purple and galactic – colors and metallics inspired by space.
"From the runways in New York, Paris, London and Milan to the latest glossy spreads, top designers have been employing both bold purple and galactic elements into their lines," said celebrity fashion designer Adam Selman, who launched his eponymous collection after designing custom clothing for notable private clients. "The combination creates a standout aesthetic that is unexpected and daring in a traditionally white space."
Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Amethyst Edition's superiority doesn't stop at the aesthetics. Like the rest of the DiamondClean range (already available in white, black and pink), Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Amethyst Edition delivers more brush strokes in two minutes than a regular manual toothbrush delivers in one month of use. As Philips Sonicare's best whitening toothbrush, the DiamondClean model is proven to whiten teeth in just one week of use1 and improve gum health in only two weeks2.
"Philips Sonicare has an ongoing commitment to creating products that push the envelope when it comes to oral care innovation and also meet very real consumer needs," said Boon Lai, Vice President of Marketing for Philips North America. "With the launch of Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Amethyst Edition, we set out to meet two needs: first, to help consumers achieve their best oral health and second, to satisfy a desire for standout style and customization."
To provide consumers with a customized brushing experience, the DiamondClean range is equipped with five bespoke brushing modes, including:
- Clean: Standard mode for a whole mouth clean
- White: Removes surface stains to whiten teeth
- Polish: Brightens and polishes teeth to bring out natural brilliance
- Gum Care: Gently stimulates and massages gums
- Sensitive: Extra-gentle for sensitive teeth
Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Amethyst Edition is available now at Amazon.com, Drugstore.com, Target.com and Walmart.com, and will be available in August 2015 at Bed Bath & Beyond, Best Buy and Kohl's stores, for the suggested retail price of $219.99.
