DaMENSCH has unveiled a new campaign titled #SoSoft, shedding light on seldom-acknowledged aspects of men. While men have traditionally been associated with strength and resilience, their emotional and vulnerable sides are often overlooked or disregarded. The 30-day #SoSoft campaign by DaMENSCH encourages men to embrace their 'soft' side, humorously portraying it in a series of videos released as part of this initiative.
“Instead of being preachy about the issue, the campaign appears funny and humorous, even as it asserts that it’s perfectly alright to not hold up for once. In the campaign videos, men can be seen getting emotional, even crying, on instances like Team India winning a cricket match, thereby donning their vulnerable self without any inhibition,” said Anurag Saboo, Co-Founder, DaMENSCH, adding that #SoSoft #MustBeDamensch takes a cue from its flagship ethos of offering essential menswear that are super soft and comfortable.
Focusing on the concept of 'softness' in innerwear, DaMENSCH launched the campaign on September 1, 2023, and it will run for a month, concluding on September 30, 2023. The campaign will be amplified across various platforms, including YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram. A total of three videos are slated for release during the campaign, each reinforcing the idea that men can express their emotions even in seemingly ordinary situations, particularly when they are wearing soft and comfortable essentials.
This initiative comes shortly after DaMENSCH introduced the #MadeForAdults campaign, which encouraged men to replace less functional innerwear with superior quality options that provide effortless comfort. The multifaceted campaign celebrated adulthood, encouraging men to transition from humorous boxer shorts to more mature choices.

SkinQ, India’s pioneering Made Safe Certified, Dermatologist-formulated, multi-active solutions brand designed for individuals with Skin of Colour, is reshaping the standards of skin care products in India by placing extensive reliance on clinical trials. This approach empowers SkinQ to address the limitations associated with traditional user trials, which, while easier to conduct, may be susceptible to external influences.
SkinQ's clinical trials, conducted through accredited entities such as Mascot Spincontrol and NovoBliss Research, in collaboration with medical professionals, have substantiated the efficacy of all four flagship products within the brand's portfolio. These trials encompassed assessments utilizing advanced tools including a Chromometer, Mexameter, and Diffused Light Image Scanning.
In these trials, the Sun Protect Ultra Light Gel demonstrated remarkable results, reducing tanning by 15.5 percent and enhancing skin smoothness by 13.7 percent in just 28 days. Furthermore, it effectively prevented pigmentation in 80 percent of users within a mere two weeks. This product was also proven to be water-resistant, leaving no residue and eliminating concerns related to oily or greasy skin. In brief, the SkinQ Acne Control Mask, with just three 15-minute applications, led to a notable 55 percent decrease in acne size, along with an impressive 72.3 percent reduction in sebum (oil) levels across all users. It additionally contributed to a 17.9 percent decrease in acne breakouts for 78 percent of users, accompanied by reductions in blackheads, and whiteheads, and improved skin brightness. The mask was well-tolerated by all users. Meanwhile, the Glow Bright Mask exhibited impressive capabilities, reducing surface tanning by 97 percent and decreasing skin roughness by 21 percent for all users, all within a 15-minute usage timeframe. Skin brightness also increased by 18 percent. Users reported a gentle application on the skin. Lastly, with consistent use over 28 days, the SkinQ Brightening Serum delivered a remarkable 35 percent increase in skin brightening for 97 percent of users, a 16 percent boost in skin smoothness among 79 percent of users, and a 5.3 percent reduction in melanin levels across all users. It also imparted a pinker and softer appearance to the skin. Importantly, no users experienced burning, stinging, or irritation post-application, and the products exhibited quick absorption and even distribution.
Meera Iyer, CEO and Co-Founder of SkinQ, remarked, “In the conventional user-trial approach, consumers receive unbranded products in unmarked packaging, spanning various price categories, from mass-market to premium. In such circumstances, consumer feedback can fluctuate once they are informed about the brand name and price point. Average reviews for a premium product can transform into highly positive ones, while those who initially favored a lower-priced option may distance themselves from their initial choice. Essentially, in the user-trial paradigm, it is often the brand reputation and pricing that significantly influence the reviews, rather than an objective evaluation of product quality. I felt that this approach was somewhat deceptive to customers, and I was determined to ensure that SkinQ products undergo rigorous testing to genuinely deliver the outcomes we promise our customers."
Chytra, Founder and Chief Innovator of SkinQ, added, "There exists a notable lack of clarity among consumers regarding what constitutes credible trials. The prevalent perception is that users provide feedback based on a standardized questionnaire concerning product quality and effectiveness. Despite its popularity, this approach yields unscientific and unverifiable results. In contrast, SkinQ's clinical trials-based approach harnesses biomarkers to identify and demonstrate the actual impact of the products."
SkinQ adopts a science-based, cost-effective procedure that can be substantiated through FDA/FTC certifications and made publicly available on clinicaltrials.gov, enabling consumers to verify the results at any time. It is this assurance of quality and genuine impact that distinguishes SkinQ from other brands that can only rely on marketing claims related to product benefits based solely on user trials, without the backing of scientific validation.

Blackberrys, the iconic Indian clothing brand renowned for spearheading men's fashion trends for over three decades, has introduced its groundbreaking Temp Tech apparel line. This line features an all-weather technology aimed at encouraging men to comfortably embrace various climates, as part of their 'Wear Your Climate' campaign.
The Blackberrys Temp Tech collection incorporates the patented 37.5 Technology by Cocona Labs, USA. This dynamic thermoregulation technology empowers the fabric to maintain the body's temperature at an optimal 37.5° Celsius, effectively controlling perspiration and managing body odor. In doing so, it offers men a perfect blend of comfort and style.
“Innovation, technology, and quality have always determined our fashion-forward offerings for Indian men. The tagline of our new Temp Tech range ‘Wear Your Climate’ summarizes what the range offers.

These men want stylish clothes that keep them comfortable in all seasons, hot or cold,” said Nitin Mohan, Director, Blackberrys.
The technology harnesses active particles derived from volcanic sand and activated carbon from coconut shells to effectively regulate body temperature. When the body is cool and not sweating, these particles utilize the body's energy to provide warmth. Conversely, in hot and sweaty conditions, the particles leverage this energy to expel moisture from the clothing system. Additionally, the technology regulates the microclimate close to the skin, maintaining an ideal relative humidity of 37.5 percent.
The Temp Tech range, with prices starting at Rs 3495, is readily available at all leading Blackberrys outlets across more than 350 cities, offering a new era of comfort and style to men across India's retail landscape.

Crafted with lemon zest and VAHDAM India's Earl Grey tea, Moonshine is on a mission to champion bee conservation and promote sustainable beekeeping practices, one sip at a time.

Rohan Rehani, Co-Founder of Moonshine Meadery and Moonshine Honey Project remarked, “In the previous year 2022-2023, Moonshine accomplished a remarkable feat, utilizing over 55 MT of honey for crafting both mead and retail honey sales. It's fascinating to note that it takes approximately 4 million flower visits by bees to produce just 1 kg of honey. Therefore, with our consumption of 55 MT of honey, we've effectively contributed to the pollination of a staggering 220 billion flowers. We're taking one pint at a time and promoting more mead at a lower price point. Our objective is to consistently weave a narrative that underscores Moonshine's commitment to ecological balance through bee preservation and dedicated beekeeping practices.”
In the alco-bev industry, Moonshine Meadery stands as the only brand that looks after beekeeping practices. With each pint of Moonshine consumed, approximately 4 million flowers are pollinated.

Clean confectionary brand Niblerzz, a prominent player in the retail sector in India, has partnered with Viacom18 Consumer Products to introduce an exciting new product – Paw Patrol Lollipops. This innovative offering features beloved characters from the popular Paw Patrol cartoon series, a hit property on Nick Jr. The lollipops, a cherished confectionery format, mark the first-ever collaboration between the renowned children's show and a domestic brand, aiming to present a clean-label confectionery delight for the Indian market.
Paw Patrol, a cherished animated series following Ryder and the adventurous pups in their missions within Adventure Bay, seamlessly complements Niblerzz's commitment to revolutionizing candy and confectionery. Niblerzz is resolutely on a mission to eliminate sugar from their products, ensuring they remain 100 percent natural.
Co-Founders of Niblerzz, Sandhya Seshadri, and Aashnee Gajaria, shared their motivation for this creative venture. They expressed that many parents had expressed a desire for a clean lollipop option, one that could captivate their children for a brief period while granting them a much-needed break. Simultaneously, parents are increasingly seeking healthier candy and confectionery alternatives, recognizing the challenges of evading candies altogether due to children's insistent demands. The co-founders elaborated on this trend stated, "Today's parents actively seek 'better for you' options devoid of refined sugar and packed with natural goodness for their children, knowing the perils of sugar in terms of hyperactivity, sleep disturbances, learning issues, emotional well-being, and even diabetes. Additionally, children exhibit allergies to artificial flavors and colors. As clean alternatives are scarce in the Indian market, parents usually resort to purchasing such products while traveling abroad or requesting friends and family to bring them."
The strategic alignment with Paw Patrol underscores Niblerzz's status as the sole 100 percent clean candy and confectionery brand in India offering lollipops in this specific format. This collaboration meets a critical consumer demand, as indicated by the Paw Patrol team's decision to join forces with Niblerzz.
Sachin Puntambekar, Business Head of Vicom18 Consumer Products, shared the company's perspective on the partnership, "We always strive to stay at the forefront of innovation through partnerships that resonate with consumer preferences. Paw Patrol holds a special place in the hearts of its audience, and we are delighted to present it to young fans in a novel and enjoyable form."

Both bags will feature an assortment of three enticing flavors: Strawberry, Watermelon, and Apple, enabling everyone to indulge in guilt-free pleasure.
Available on Niblerzz's direct-to-consumer website and various online marketplaces including Amazon, Swiggy Mini, and Big Basket, the Paw Patrol Niblerzz Lollipops will also be conveniently found in brick-and-mortar retail locations. The packaging will prominently showcase Paw Patrol characters, and kids will have the added excitement of collecting 22 captivating Paw Patrol freebies along with their lollipops.
In addition to the novel Lollipop range, Niblerzz's product lineup encompasses other clean candy alternatives like Real Fruit Gummies in flavors such as Orange, Mango, and Mixed Fruit, as well as Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups.
