CARIOCA Baby® teddy markers, designed for the hands of the very young, are protected from bacterial growth 24/7 and for their expected lifetime. The treatment is invisible, working continuously in between regular cleaning practices to keep the markers cleaner. This allows parents to worry less about bacteria and focus more on playtime with their little ones.

Giorgio Bertolo, General Manager of CARIOCA®, commented: "This innovative product responds to the greater sensitivity of parents to the health and safety of their children. For CARIOCA it is important to focus on safety and innovation, bringing the BABY range to an even higher level of safety by exploiting new technologies such as that of Microban. So children are free to get dirty, no worries for their parents."
