Today, looking after our health is more important than ever.

Healthily with Dettol is the first medically trusted, safe app that gives individuals the tools they need to take control of their health. The free app, available on Android and iOS, will help users understand their health, find answers and boost wellbeing with practical tools and insights, all approved by the Healthily Clinical Advisory Board. With further integration coming soon, including custom Dettol content integrated within the app, content amplification, integrated marketing support and customised user journeys, the two brands are on a mission to transform health across India through informed and effective self-care.

From Dettol’s early days of protecting against infection in UK hospitals, it’s grown to become synonymous with everyday health. Today, the brand’s mission is to help protect families living their everyday lives at home. Partnering with Healthily will help Dettol deliver on their mission in new and important ways, especially now, when self-care at home is so critical.

In addition to the co-branded app, Healthily has over 275 medically-approved health articles translated to Hindi available on the web.

“We are committed to delivering better self-care access and tools to create a digital-first experience for consumers. Healthily with Dettol is an innovation that will empower millions of our consumers in India with the ability to take control of their health and better protect themselves and their families”, said Pankaj Duhan, Marketing Director, South Asia, Health, RB.

“We're delighted to launch our first-ever co-branded app with Dettol, a giant in the health and hygiene category. With coronavirus at an all-time high, there’s no better time for simple, easy-to-use, medically validated content to be accessible to the Indian public,” said CEO, Matteo Berlucchi.
