Hey girls, Playtex® is giving you the confidence to Play On™ at any time of the month!


Playtex® introduces new Playtex® Sport® Combo packs,

Playtex® Sport® Pads and Playtex® Sport® Liners

TORONTO (May 11, 2015) – Get the A. Make the team. Sing in the band. Whatever your goal, the Playtex® Feminine Care brand believes nothing should hold you back, including your period. This month, Playtex® is introducing Playtex® Sport® Combo packs, Playtex’s first tampon plus pad or tampon plus liner combination packs available in Canada. Featuring the popular Playtex® Sport® Tampons along with the new Playtex® Sport® Pads or Playtex® Sport® Liners, these combination packs make it easy for young women to pick the protection they want and gives them the confidence to play on!

“We developed the Playtex® Sport® Combo pack because we identified a need to provide young women – and especially girls who recently started their period – with multiple feminine care products in one convenient package,” says Christine Jew, Brand Manager, Energizer Canada. “The new Playtex® Sport® Combo pack is ideal for girls in the process of discovering what products best suit their needs and it also appeals to the many women who use multiple formats during that time of the month.”

For girls who like to use pads and liners, the new Playtex® Sport® Pads and Liners offer a FlexFit™ design that moves with the body, OdorShield™ technology that neutralizes odours before they start, and Qwik-Dry™ technology that quickly pulls in fluid and wicks moisture away. There’s Sport Level Protection™ for any way you play!

This summer, Playtex® Sport® is celebrating young women across Canada with an Instagram contest that asks girls to show how they Play On™. For additional information, follow us on Instagram at @PlayOnCanada and visit WWW.PLAYTEXPLAYON.CA.
