AALST-EREMBODEGEM, Belgium, Feb. 18, 2020 (Press Release) -Ontex Group NV (“Ontex”): iD Intime, an absorbent underwear range for women, has been Voted Product of the Year 2020 in the incontinence product category in Belgium. ‘Voted Product of the Year’ is awarded based on online voting results and quality tests by Belgian consumers. The consumer panel chose iD Intime as their winner over other incontinence products thanks to its combination of safety and comfort, with discretion and femininity.
Estimates indicate that between 25-45% of women will develop urinary incontinence during their lifetime. It can negatively impact their quality of life, causing feelings of anger and embarrassment, a loss of self-confidence and, in the long-term, avoiding social gatherings. The iD Intime slogan “I Choose to Feel Feminine” is based on these insights and echoed strongly with consumers in the test panel.
Annick De Poorter, R&D, Executive VP R&D & Quality of the Ontex Group, said: “We wanted to offer a solution that makes women feel protected, confident and feminine at the same time. iD Intime looks and feels like normal underwear, giving women peace of mind while boosting their self-confidence.” Ontex’s iD Intime allows women to live their lives without worrying about urinary incontinence.
Voted Product of the Year: prize awarded by Belgian consumers
Belgian consumers elected iD Intime ‘Voted Product of the Year’ in the incontinence product category. The products in the running were first rated online by consumers on four different criteria: awareness, attractiveness, perceived innovation and intention to buy. As a second step, a comparative quality test was conducted by the consumer panel. For the third year in a row, the consumer panel has selected an Ontex product as Product of the Year.
“Winning Voted Product of the Year for iD Intime not only rewards our research to find a tailored solution for women but also motivates us to keep innovating in order to develop high quality solutions that meet our consumers’ needs”, said Xavier Lambrecht, President of Ontex’s Healthcare Division.
