Evolving Our Company’s Values

February 22, 2024

Investing in our wellbeing is a continual journey, and fostering small, daily habits can yield a significant positive impact on overall health. To guide you on this journey, let’s explore five essential tips to uplift your wellness and discover how Colgate-Palmolive products can support your daily routine, contributing to a healthier lifestyle.

Tip #1: Prioritize Oral Health

Did you know that oral health significantly impacts overall wellness? Your teeth and gums play a crucial role in whole body health and mental well-being. Set up your mouth and teeth for success by adopting these straightforward oral hygiene habits and tips:

  • Regular dental checkups contribute to preventive care and early issue detection.
  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss regularly to remove plaque effectively.
  • Use antibacterial mouth rinses to reduce cavity-causing bacteria levels.
  • Maintain a balanced diet, limiting starchy or sugary foods.
  • Consider dental products containing fluoride for comprehensive protection.


Poor oral health isn't just about your teeth; it's linked to mental health. Cavities and gum disease can significantly impact mental wellbeing. This recent World Mental Health Day, we announced our partnership with Healthline Media, raising awareness about the connection between oral health and overall wellbeing.

Tip #2: Protect Your Skin 

Skin health is a daily essential, no matter the season. Shield your skin from harmful UV rays with products like EltaMD’s UV Restore Broad-Spectrum SPF 40. Sunscreen helps prevent premature aging, sunburn, hyperpigmentation and greatly reduces the risk of skin cancer. By incorporating sunscreen into your daily skincare regimen, you can protect your skin from skin damage, ensuring it stays healthy and protected all year round. For easy, on-the-go reapplication, consider products like EltaMD’s UV AOX Mist Broad-Spectrum SPF 40. It conveniently absorbs into the skin within seconds and blends flawlessly into all skin types — no streaks, patches or white cast in sight.

Tip #3: Embrace Hand Hygiene

Proper handwashing is a fundamental practice to keep illness at bay. Washing hands thoroughly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds can significantly reduce the spread of germs. At Colgate-Palmolive, we're committed to educating millions globally about the health and hygiene benefits of handwashing.

Tip #4: Maintain a Clean Environment

A clean home contributes to a healthier lifestyle. Regularly sanitizing high-touch surfaces like doorknobs and countertops helps minimize the spread of bacteria spread. Discover our range of Fabuloso® all-purpose cleaners, designed to leave your home sparkling and fresh, here.

Last year, we also introduced Suavitel Shed Shield, a groundbreaking liquid fabric conditioner that will change the way you do laundry. Its  hair-repelling Active Ingredient Complex and odor-fighting technology make it the perfect solution for pet-friendly households.
