Desired outcome

For years, the number of hours we sleep each night have outweighed other important factors, such as quality of sleep, that determine whether we are well rested and even overall health.

P&G is looking for products and technologies that contain a fast-moving consumable product to enhance not only the number of hours we rest, but the quality of our rest through improved sleeping environments including airflow, air quality, scent, light and sound levels, air temperature and humidity.
