Dirty Words Used To Expand The Conversation About Organic Seed

June 9, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Five agrichemical companies control most of the seeds that are used to grow our crops, according to the Clif Bar Family Foundation, which recently launched the Seed Matters initiative to tout the benefits of high-yielding organic seed as opposed to the nutrient-poor GMO seeds developed by industrial agriculture. The problem is, consumers aren’t really aware of the importance of the seeds used in farming. To rectify that, Seed Matters hired an ad agency to develop Mr. Seed, a foul-mouthed animated organic seed character, to get its point across. That point is that “public funding is at stake” and seed is rapidly becoming consolidated and privatized. There has to be a broader conversation – even if it’s laced with obscenities – about the future of seed.

Philips has unveiled an adult toothbrush that can be used with a smartphone app to tell brushing direction, angle, and brush pressure. The app collects the data, tracks it over time  and maps it against a 3D tooth image that can be used by a dental hygienist to instruct a patient in addressing trouble areas. Equipped with an accelerometer, gyros, and pressure sensors, the Sonicare Flexcare Platinum Connected brush has three brushing modes with different intensity levels, and a two-minute timer. The price of the new brush will be $199.99 and it will be available this summer.

Procter & Gamble Invents Device For Cleaning Oral Care Products And Tools

June 8, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Procter & Gamble Co. received a patent for an electrical device designed to clean oral care devices, including mouth guards, artificial teeth and removable braces, retainers, and anti-snoring mouthpieces. Invented by company scientists Mario Elmen Tremblay, Alan David Willey, Luisa Navarro Cerda, and Alexander Doll, the device is likely to be marketed by P&G's Oral-B division. Powered by a wall outlet or ordinary batteries, the device includes an electrical current supply and an electrolytic cell to generate chlorine dioxide gas. According to P&G, there is a need for the device because of the problem of residue buildup on dental appliances, such as dentures, orthodontic bridges, and retainers.

Procter & Gamble Readies For Expansion During Second Post-Lafley Period

June 8, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
With A.G. Lafley set to leave Procter & Gamble Co. for the second and final time, the consumer goods giant is set to expand and grow its business operations. On July 1, 2016, president and CEO David Taylor will assume the role as chairman of the company. During his first stint as leader of P&G in 2000 to 2009, Lafley more than doubled sales and expanded its lineup of billion-dollar brands from 10 to 23. Lafley was recalled to refresh his role as leader after the company's sales started declining by 2013, due to the Great Depression. Lafley's second stint, however, was not as smooth sailing as his first at the start. Despite the early headwinds, Lafley led a five-year $10-billion restructuring plan aimed at focusing on the company's core brands and cutting costs significantly. Among the brands disposed of by the company were Mars pet foods and Duracell batteries. In 2015, P&G sold 43 beauty brands to Coty for $12.5 billion.

Will Toothpaste Pods Get Funding Needed To Launch?

June 8, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Inventor Wayne Solan and his company Dental Development Systems are using a Kickstarter campaign to raise money for a novel toothpaste-in-a-pod product. The idea behind the single-use Poppits pod is to eliminate the traditional, nonrecyclable toothpaste tube (the pods themselves are sold in recyclable paperboard boxes). The toothpaste in the cellulose-enclosed pod is released as soon as it is popped into the mouth and brushing begins. Solan says he has secured funding from a toothpaste company and manufacturing company, but at this writing was still $10,000 short of his Kickstarter funding goal.
