Challenges Girls to Put the New Maximum Protection Pads to the Test with "Real Life Demos"

DALLAS, Aug. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- U by Kotex, an innovative feminine care brand by Kimberly-Clark, has introduced U by Kotex Extra pads – a new, super premium maxi pad designed to keep girls feeling clean and fresh while providing maximum, heavy duty protection. The brand's most absorbent pad yet, U by Kotex Extra pads provide such outstanding protection that the U by Kotex brand invites girls to put it to the test in their own "real life product demos" and experience firsthand how it performs and looks like no other.

"The U by Kotex brand knows girls are too smart to believe the absurd, unrealistic demos that some feminine care brands use to prove their products work," said Kanchan Patkar, U by Kotex senior brand manager, Kimberly-Clark. "When it comes to protection, real life is the only test that matters; so we encourage girls to try and see for themselves how the U by Kotex Extra pad protects against their heaviest flows." Girls can receive a free U by Kotex Extra pad sample at ubykotex.com and share the results of their "real life demos" using #demodiaries.  

With the launch of U by Kotex Extra pads, the U by Kotex brand now offers a full spectrum of coverage absorbency including U by Kotex Click and Sleek tampons, U by Kotex CleanWear pads and U by Kotex BarelyThere and Curves liners. The new U by Kotex Extra pads have a soft dual cover that keeps wearers clean and dry, an ultra-flexible four-layer absorbency system, and Tru-Fit wings that help prevent bunching and scrunching and keep the pad in place. Like all U by Kotex brand products, U by Kotex Extra pads feature a bold, edgy aesthetic and fun colors that continue to challenge the boring and institutional look of feminine care. The launch of U by Kotex Extra pads is supported by a multi-faceted commercial marketing program, including television, print and online advertising, online demo diaries, digital partnerships and retail support.
