Polo reveals 1/3 of Brits don’t brush their teeth at festivals….Eeek!.

30th June 2017

Just in time for festival season, Polo have released a fun (and shocking!) survey conducted by YouGov , revealing that of the two thousand participants asked, over a third neglect their dental hygiene completely – forgetting the importance of brushing their teeth during a five-day festival.

The survey also showed that bad breath was more of a put off at a festival than any other factor – with over a third saying that it is worse than being badly dressed, having B.O or having bad chat and with over 80% of British singletons refusing to dance with someone again if they had bad breath. But what’s more – it seems relying on friends to point out the issue is not the answer, with statistics from across the country showing that over a third of consumers would not tell even their best friend that they have bad breath!

But fear not, for POLO® Sugar Free has a way to help, with their brand NEW sugar free range of POLO® pots – a great way to help solve bad breath and prevent against dental erosion when you can’t brush your teeth twice a day (which POLO® strongly recommends).

Chief Executive of the British Dental Health Foundation, Dr Nigel Carter, said: ‘Bad breath is a condition that can be prevented and treated easily if necessary. Sugar Free mints are an ideal way to freshen breath and help prevent against dental erosion when it is not possible to brush with a toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. Unlike mints with added sugar, POLO® Sugar Free and POLO Sugar Free Extra Strong, can be enjoyed everyday without the risk of tooth decay.’
