For all of these benefits, we have been endorsed by Da Viva; Africa’s foremost contemporary fashion brand which also provides a platform for Canoe detergent to establish its colour care credentials.”

Carol Arhere, Da Viva’s Public Relations Officer said “Da Viva is particularly excited to partner with Canoe detergent“. Carol added that both brands have the same qualities – bold, innovative, expressive, contemporary, fashionable and excellence. “We are indeed very proud and privileged to partner with Canoe Detergent on their “Alive with Colour” campaign.”

According to the Marketing Manager, Fabric Care; Roy Ekekwe, “Many detergents clean but damage clothes and run colours therefore causing quick fading and shading on the long run. Canoe detergent has been specially formulated to clean and care for all original coloured fabrics in all washing cycles therefore retaining colours more compared to ordinary detergents in every wash.”
