New Saba Cuidado-V Intimate Care Range
Essity is the market leader in Latin America and the launch of the new Saba Cuidado is another way to further strengthen our consumer offering. The new Saba Cuidado-V Intimate Care range is a line of products specifically designed to care for women’s most delicate intimate area, every day of the month. This launch is the first step into expanding our feminine care brand to daily intimate care in line with our brand vision to become “the leading brand in period care and daily intimate care” and to position our brand as the expert in v-zone intimate care.
