Leading the campaign are 21 local celebrities including actors, radio and TV presenters, singers and sports personalities, who had taken up the challenge and adopted Listerine mouthwash in their daily oral hygiene routine.  They make the perfect role models for oral health, as they are constantly interacting with people and under the scrutiny of the public, and as such, maintaining a high level of oral hygiene means scoring high on their personal social or popularity meter.


Brushing teeth cleans only 23 percent of the mouth.  Rinsing with antiseptic mouthwash is highly crucial to weed out bacteria in areas where brushing cannot reach. Unfortunately, a survey has showed that only 23.6 percent* Malaysians regularly use mouthwash. (*Source: Kantar Worldpanel – Peninsular Malaysia, August 2012)

According to Johnson & Johnson Consumer Malaysia and Singapore Commercial Director Eunice Tan, the majority of Malaysian adults still do not include mouthwash in their daily oral hygiene routine, making them susceptible to common oral issues such as bad breath, tooth decay and bleeding gums.


So what is the Listerine 21 Days Challenge all about? This campaign challenges Malaysian adults to elevate their oral health by using Listerine mouthwash twice every day for 21 days consecutively, with a money-back guarantee for anyone who does not experience any difference at the end of the 21 days. And why 21 days?  According to Tan, experts have agreed that 21 days is the amount of time it takes for a habit to take root in a person’s life.

Listerine antiseptic mouthwash is capable of preventing all accessible surfaces of the oral cavity, and reduces the build-up of bacteria in our mouth. This is crucial because a hotspot of bacteria forms a layer of plaque, which would in turn cause gingivitis, or the inflammation of the gums. Worse, gingivitis may lead to periodontitis, an irreversible condition that may cause tooth lost. As always, prevention is better than cure. Studies have found that rinsing with Listerine antiseptic mouthwash after brushing and flossing can reduce 52% more plaque and 21% more gingivitis than brushing and flossing alone.

Why 21 days?  According to Tan, experts have agreed that 21 days is the amount of time it takes for a habit to take root in a person’s life.
