Vicks takes away silver and bronze at the Loved By Parents Awards 2013

The Vicks Paediatric healthcare range of humidifiers and thermometers has seen success in its first year of entry in the Loved by Parents Awards 2013

The VH5000 Vicks CoolMist Mini Ultrasonic humidifier picked up the silver award in the best baby care product category. An aid recommended by doctors when a child comes down with a cold, a humidifier can help loosen congestion and soothe a sore throat. The Vicks CoolMist Mini Ultrasonic Humidifier creates and maintains a comfortable indoor humidity level, to gently soothe cold and flu symptoms. To provide even more relief to your little ones, you can use the Vicks menthol or rosemary and lavender scented VapoPads.

Suitable for babies and children’s rooms due to the cool mist technology which avoids the risk of burns, the humidifier helps maintain moisture levels between 40-60%, reducing the survival of flu viruses on surfaces and in the air, while easing a dry nose, throat, eye and skin discomforts.

Bronze was awarded to the V965 Vicks BPA free Comfortflex Thermometer in the best safety product category. Extremely easy for parents to use, this state of the art, digital thermometer is a safe and convenient way to monitor a child’s temperature. Featuring Fever InSight technology, the thermometer uses a traffic light colour-coded system to display body temperature. Suitable for oral, rectal or underarm use, the flexible tip makes taking a child’s temperature more comfortable and can deliver a readings as fast as eight seconds.

Julien Charrière, in charge of Marketing for the Vick’s Paediatric health care range, said: “The UK is a key market for us and what better way to communicate directly with parents than by having them test and review our products. Being our first year of entry into the awards, we’re delighted that our range has been successful. The fact that these awards are tested by, and voted for, by parents in the UK makes the win all that more meaningful.”

The Loved By Parents Awards are judged by a panel of real parents who give the ultimate seal of approval to their favourite products. It recognises excellence across a number of categories from best activity toy through to best App.
