Oral Health Care
1 Supporting Maternity Classes
Since 2013, maternity classes have been held annually at about 200 obstetrics and gynecology clinics located in 15 cities in China. The maternity classes are conducted for soon-to-be mothers to support them as they prepare to give birth. The maternity classes include periodic lectures on oral care during pregnancy, as expectant mothers tend to be especially susceptible to oral health issues.
Lion Daily Necessities Chemicals (Qingdao) Co., Ltd. (“QDL”) supports these lectures by providing oral care products and information on correct oral care to the clinics.
In 2019, lectures were held in Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou, Suzhou and Zhejiang. Oral care gift sets containing an “Oral Care Directions for Soon-to-Be Mothers” leaflet as well as a Systema Toothbrush and KODOMO Toothbrush (both products sold by QDL) are provided to all participants. Through these activities, QDL promoted oral health awareness among approximately 70,000 expectant mothers.
2 Oral Health Event of Tooth Brushing for Children
The Lion Group places emphasis on fostering children's awareness of dental and oral health in order to help them stay healthy for a lifetime. Aiming to teach correct oral care to elementary school students, the Lion Group has held the Oral Health Event of Tooth Brushing for Children since 1932. Currently, the event is held annually in Asia.
QDL has held the Oral Health Event of Tooth Brushing for Children since 2017. In 2019, a total of 125 students from two Japanese elementary schools in Quingdao and Shenzhen participated in the event. An educational DVD and oral care sets (including an event booklet, toothbrush, toothpaste, dental floss and mirror) are sent to participating schools in advance. Using the distributed oral care sets, students learn the causes of cavities and how to properly use toothbrushes and dental floss.
3 Raising the Oral Care Awareness of Expectant Mothers
In every district of Shanghai, expectant mothers who have reached the third month of pregnancy are required to register personal information regarding their pregnancy and birth plans at a community hygiene health care center in their town.
QDL cooperates with the Shanghai Institute of Planned Parenthood Research, a municipal government department, to promote the importance of oral care during pregnancy. Oral care gift sets that contain leaflets titled “Oral Care Directions for Soon-to-Be Mothers” and Systema toothbrushes and toothpaste (both products sold by QDL) are distributed to expectant mothers who come to health care centers to register. The oral care gift sets have been provided to about 300,000 expectant mothers every year from 2014 to 2017.
1 Raising Awareness of Health and Hand Washing at Hospitals in Shanghai
Kirei Kirei brand hand soap is sold in a number of countries and regions, including China, by Lion Group companies. QDL has posted hand washing wall-posters featuring Kirei Kirei illustrations in hospitals to raise awareness of health and hand washing among children and their parents and promote healthy living since 2018. These posters depict correct hand washing practices.
In 2019, approximately 50,000 families had the chance to learn from these posters. Also, QDL provides Kirei Kirei samples so visitors can try using it and practice correct hand washing techniques.
2 Hand Washing Activities at Kindergartens
In Shanghai, to prevent the spread of infectious diseases, children are encouraged to wash their hands before entering the kindergarten building. As a support measure, QDL has supported hand washing activities aimed at children ages three to six in kindergartens in Shanghai since 2016.
QDLprovides Kirei Kirei hand soaps (a product it sells) to kindergartens for children to use at hand washing sinks.Moreover, QDL supports the hand washing classes conducted in kindergartens. In the hand washing classes, children are taught the importance of hand washing by their teacher, and every child receives a Kirei Kirei Health Diary, which contains instructions on correct hand washing techniques and timing.
In 2019, QDL expanded this activity to Beijing, Guangzhou, Hangzhou and Nanjing, allowing the company to distribute Kirei Kirei Health Diaries to approximately 45,000 children at 150 kindergartens.
3 Hand Washing Promotion for Children at Educational Institutions
QDL is promoting the importance of hand washing among children ages three and up at various educational institutions in Shanghai. With the hope of making hand washing fun for children, QDL provides Kirei Kirei hand soap (a product it sells) and posts the “Happy Hand Washing” slogan and stickers showing correct hand washing steps at hand washing sinks.
In 2019, QDL expanded this activity to Beijing, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Hangzhou and conducted it in 251 educational institutions, teaching more than 251,000 children correct hand washing methods.
4 Setting up the LION’s Wonderful House in Big Parks in Shanghai
In Shanghai, spring and autumn are the most popular seasons to spend time outdoors, and many people gather at parks. However, there are not many places at such venues for people to wash their hands before eating and drinking.
Since 2016, QDL has set up the Hand Washing House at key times of year in big parks in Shanghai. Users of the Hand Washing House are taught how to wash their hands correctly, and Kirei Kirei Health Diaries, containing instructions on correct hand washing techniques and timing, are distributed to all participants.
In 2019, the Hand Washing House was updated to become LION’s Wonderful House. This limited-time event aims to teach visitors about the merits of QDL's products. In addition to conventional Kirei Kirei hand soap, the house has exhibition booths promoting such oral care products and brands as the KODOMO brand. Furthermore, to offer a more comprehensive look at house cleaning lifestyle options, QDL expanded the display area to include household products for fabric care and living care, such as TOP brand items. Staff encouraged visitors to try the product samples and explained the products’ key functions and features. If, after being given the chance to browse all the products, visitors chose to buy a QDL product through its website, they were given the chance to play the Interactive Gachapon Machine, which gives good odds on winning QDL products. These park events reached appropriately 70,000 park visitors.
