Colgate Total® Advanced Health Mouthwash builds on the multi-use trend seen in many health and beauty products. This mouthwash contains two-layer technology; combining freshening power with germ killing ingredients. To activate the formula, simply shake the bottle, gargle the mouthwash, and rinse to remove 24x more bacteria* for a healthier mouth.

Karla will speak on women’s empowerment and self-help. Karent will open up about the best oral health routine and tips for a healthier smile. Chef Lala will provide nutritious ways to enjoy traditional Latin cuisine. Finally, Yoga instructor Yudy will share new at-home exercise routines.
