Colgate Naturals Brings Healthier Smiles to Malaysians, Inspired by Nature

Being mom of two boys with busy lifestyle, I never forget the important of oral care. The Colgate Naturals are suitable for kids 7 years old and above.

Having provided quality and innovative oral care products for more than two centuries globally, Colgate continues to inspire consumers to take better care of their oral health from the most primary step – through their toothpaste. In line with that, Colgate today introduces a new range of toothpaste inspired by nature – Colgate Naturals, designed to meet consumers’ gravitation towards a more wellness-focused lifestyle. With natural extracts such as lemon, tea tree oil, aloe vera, seaweed salt and crystalline salt, Colgate Naturals comes in three variants: Pure Fresh, Real White and Gum Comfort.

Taking prominence across Asia, consumers are at a stage of heightened awareness, actively having conversations around the need for a healthier life1. When it comes to personal care, consumers are becoming more conscious of the choice of products used. This highlights the fact that consumers are beginning to seek products that will provide an uplifting experience while improving their overall well-being. This growing awareness was also reported in the Nielsen Global Corporate Sustainability Report 2015, indicating that 60% of Malaysians (above the global average) are more likely to consume products that are made from fresh, natural or organic ingredients.

Peter Torrington, General Manager of Colgate-Palmolive Malaysia said: “Over the years, we have seen an emerging trend of increased advocacy towards health and wellness across Asia, particularly Malaysia as well. In fact, these concepts are slowly but surely becoming the new lifestyle symbol for millennial Asians, with Malaysians included into the fold. As such, the introduction of our new Colgate Naturals range comes at an opportune time, in which we continue to widen oral care offerings for our consumers.”

As one of the leading pioneers in the oral care industry, Colgate is paving the way with innovative products in the oral care category that stems from its in-depth understanding of consumers’ needs. This has led Colgate to reshape the market with leading innovations such as Colgate Sensitive Pro Relief, the No.1 Anti-Sensitivity toothpaste recommended by dentists, and Colgate Total Charcoal Deep Clean – the first of its kind in the market to combine our clinically proven formulation of 12-hour2 anti-bacterial protection with a winning local ingredient of micro charcoal particles for even deeper cleaning.

Adding to its range of comprehensive oral care products, Colgate Naturals marks its foray into the natural category offering, providing consumers with a nature-inspired toothpaste to complete their overall wellness regimen, in their quest for a healthier life.

Peter added: "As a trusted household brand worldwide in the oral hygiene market, innovation has long been embedded in our culture, to constantly drive the company in identifying new products that are able meet the ever-changing needs of our consumers. Time and again, Colgate has reshaped the market and today, we endeavour to continue this success with the introduction of Colgate Naturals.

Inspired by nature, our new Colgate Naturals range of toothpaste aims to offer a breath of fresh air in the oral care category, in tandem with shifting consumer consumption habits seeking to enhance their overall wellbeing,” concluded Peter.

Healthier Smiles Inspired by Nature

Available in three variants, Colgate Naturals combines the goodness of nature’s best ingredients with Colgate’s oral care expertise, for healthy smiles inspired by nature.
They are:

· Colgate Naturals Pure Fresh 
– containing lemon oil and aloe vera extracts for long lasting fresh breath, with a zesty lemon aftertaste to leave your mouth with that fresh clean feeling;

· Colgate Naturals Real White
 – infused with seaweed and crystalline salts for naturally white teeth, leaving you with a unique flavour and a slight tinge of saltiness for a refreshing after-brush mouth feel;
· Colgate Naturals Gum Comfort 
 – with a blend of tea tree oil and aloe vera extracts to naturally care and protect, leaving you with healthier teeth and gums.

All three Colgate Naturals toothpaste variants are available at leading retailers and pharmacies nationwide at a recommended retail selling price of RM11.90 and RM21.40, for the 120g and 120g twin pack respectively.

“Monstrously Good” Bath Time for Kids

 Being mom of 2 boys, I am always on the go and I know important of taking of children for their well being. Now every parents would be concern about their health, education and lifestyles. Skin care products for children and adults are different therefore we cannot give children to use adult skincare products.

Buds Organics is changing the conversation around bath time with their newly launched organic ‘Buds for Kids’ range, now with a brand new look. Along with the addition of two new fruity shower gel scents, Raspberry and Tutty Fruity, comes entirely new packaging featuring four adorable new fuzzy monsters, guaranteed to make bath time a fun and memorable experience for kids.

Buds Organics: A Labour of Love
Unbeknownst to many, Buds Organics is a homegrown Malaysian brand born from a loving parent’s passion to protect his kids from all the harmful chemicals out there. Made by parents for parents, it originated from the home kitchen of founder Soo Kian Kheng, who was a chemical engineer prior to starting up Buds Organics with his sister, Soo Siew Peng. Buds Organics first started from Buds Baby, a line of products that Mr. Soo lovingly created for his baby. As his kids grew up, so did Buds Baby and eventually Buds for Kids was created.

“When I saw my children suffering from sensitive skin, I knew that I couldn’t stand around doing nothing. I took it upon myself to come up with a new formula, perfectly and completely safe for my children. I understood the difficulties that parents faced in finding good bath time products which would not aggravate their children’s sensitive skin and therefore I decided to introduce Buds Organics to the world,” said Mr. Soo at the Buds for Kids launch.

Mr. Soo added that some parents do not realise the harm that they are putting their kids through. A majority of parents are not aware that conventional cleaning products contain chemicals which are too harsh for young babies and children. This leads to parents allowing their kids to use adult shower gels thus unintentionally exposing them to harsh chemicals from a very young age.

Buds Organics makes it their priority to bring parents’ attention to their children’s sensitive skin, therefore Dr. Amir Hamzah Dato’ Abdul Latif, was invited to the launch to shed some light on the topic of children’s skin. Dr. Amir is the Head of Allergy & Immunology Centre, Pantai Hospital, and the President of Malaysian Society of Allergy and Immunology (MSAI). He explained that children and babies have more delicate skin which is up to 30% thinner than adults’ skin, making them more susceptible to external irritants. “Prolonged exposure to harsh chemicals contained in commercial shower gels or fragrances could possibly lead to rashes, allergic reactions, and even eczema in children. To avoid such reactions, special care has to be taken in choosing shower gels and shampoos for children,” Dr. Amir emphasised.

Understanding Labels: No More Nasties
In order to bring to attention all the ‘nasties’ hiding in conventional cleaning products, Buds Organics encourages parents to have a proper look at the ingredient labels at the back of shower gel and shampoo bottles. Ingredient lists are usually ignored by consumers as the long lists of fancy, scientific names come off as intimidating and make little sense. One of the chemicals which was brought to attention was ‘Sodium Lauryl Sulfate’, usually disguised as ‘SLS’, a common chemical found in most cleaning products like shampoo, soap, shower gels, detergents, mouthwash, and toothpaste. It has corrosive properties (which is why it is used in floor and dish detergents!) and is a proven skin and eye irritant.

ECOCERT: A Promise to Parents
So strong was Buds Organics’ dedication towards protecting children from harmful chemicals that they would stop at nothing to reassure parents that their products were fully and truly organic. Mr. Soo willingly puts Buds Organics through extremely stringent checks twice a year by ECOCERT - one of the most recognised organic certification bodies in the world. Submission to ECOCERT is a promise to parents that Buds Organics products contain a minimum of 95% certified-organic plant based ingredients. For instance, instead of using artificial perfume to fragrance the shampoos and shower gels, only the purest natural essential oils are used. Buds Organics was the first Asian brand to be recognised by ECOCERT to have a full range of certified organic personal skin and hair care products.

One such parent whose life has been touched by Buds Organics was guest speaker Mary Anne Loh, founder of Wishing Star Malaysia, a platform where members of the public come together to realise the wishes and bucket lists of kids with terminal diseases.

During the launch, she showed her unwavering support for Buds throughout the years and how Buds has been with her kids especially through all their challenges with severe skin sensitivity. “Both my sons used to suffer from really sensitive skin. Their conditions have now gotten much better than before and for that I have Buds to thank. Buds is every bit as mild and safe as they said they would be,” shared Mary Anne at the launch. Since then, her children have graduated from Buds Baby and moved on to Buds for Kids. As she has seen first-hand the effects of harsh conventional shower gels on her children’s sensitive skin, she has become a strong voice in urging parents to be more attentive to the nasty chemicals hiding in their children’s bath time products.

Children from Wishing Star were invited by Buds Organics to join in the fun and spend the day at KidZania. These cancer warriors are fighting a huge battle of their own, and while there is no way we can come close to understanding their struggles, Buds Organics was happy to help in this small way to allow them forget their worries even if it was just for a few hours.

‘Name The Monster’ Contest
In celebration of their new look, Buds for Kids is inviting children to get to know their four new furry monsters. As of now, the monsters have not been named yet and have requested that their friends, the children, be the ones to give them new names. Buds for Kids will therefore be holding a contest
via Facebook to allow kids to name all four of the monsters featured on the product bottles from 28 September 2017 to 31 October 2017.

Where to get Buds for Kids?
Buds for Kids is available for purchase at leading chain pharmacies such as Guardian, Caring and other independent pharmacies as well. Also available at Mothercare, Robinsons, selected Parkson stores, baby boutiques, and online stores.

‘Buds for Kids’ Full Range:
• Lavender Shower Gel 350ml - RM51.83

4 Tips for Choosing Tonight's Restaurant

You're ready to hit the town and enjoy some grub. But where should you go? With hundreds of restaurants, cafes, bistros and diners all demanding your attention in the city lights, it can be difficult to choose the one place where you'll be spending your evening. Here are just a few tips for narrowing down your options and finding somewhere nice.

1. Identify Your Cravings

Maybe you're in the mood for Italian. Maybe you're dying for something salty. Maybe you're willing to eat anything as long as it fits within your budget! There's no right or wrong answer when it comes to what you're craving; the key is figuring out what you're craving in the first place. When your friend asks you where you want to go, don't just shrug and say "anywhere." Give them a personal preference to help them make a decision.

2. Whip Out Your Smartphone

The 21st century makes it easy to compare and contrast restaurants. All you have to do is plug something like "seafood in Plano TX" into a search engine to find eating establishments that fit your criteria. You can also read reviews, look at pictures and check food safety reports for your chosen establishment. By the time that you actually arrive, you'll feel like you've already been there!

3. Browse Their Menu

This can be done both in-person and on your phone. The latter is more convenient, of course, but not all restaurants offer their entire selection on the web, so it might be necessary to physically visit their location. You can ask for a menu while you're waiting for your party to be seated. That way, you'll know right off the bat if there's anything on the menu that intrigues you.

4. Consider Its Freshness

This is especially important if you're in the mood for seafood. You'll want a restaurant that either catches its own fish or receives daily shipments straight from the docks. Don't be afraid to call and ask if this information isn't available on their website! You might also inquire about the freshness of their fruits, vegetables and other perishables. The restaurant should be more than happy to answer questions from a potential customer.

These are four ways to choose your next restaurant. Whether you're celebrating a fancy anniversary or just looking for a cheap place to grab a burger, let these tips guide you towards a nice evening on the town.

Check out the video above which I have snap some photos at the event.You can also view the photos from my Facebook page album, click on the link to view it.

The initiative, by a retailer already synonymous with low prices, fresh products and great value, features 500 best- selling, everyday items offered at low "locked-in" or unchanged prices that are equal to or lower than those offered. The Giant LOL campaign will run until December 31, 2017 at 123 Giant stores in Peninsular Malaysia, Sabah and Sarawak.

Antabax On-the-Go for A Cleaner, More Hygienic Ramadan & Hari Raya

Comprising of the terrific trio of pocket-sized Antabax Antibacterial Cleansing Wipes, Instant Hand Sanitizer and Hand Sanitizer Spray, the Antabax sanitizing range is perfect for quick yet thorough clean-ups as you navigate Ramadan and Hari Raya preparations.
Being mommy of two boys, I am always on the go. I am happy to have the Antabax on the go with me. It's important to take care of personal hygiene. Antabax, the number 1 Halal antibacterial personal care range[1] has got your on-the-go hygiene needs covered with its sanitizing range that you can take with you anytime, anywhere for cleansing, even without water. 

The Antabax sanitizing range is perfect for quick yet thorough clean-ups as you navigate Ramadan and Hari Raya preparations including the long and joyous journey back for Balik Kampung.

Comprising of the terrific trio of pocket-sized Antabax Antibacterial Cleansing Wipes, Instant Hand Sanitizer and Hand Sanitizer Spray, these handy cleansing essentials will see you through any situation that requires a quick, hygienic fix. Conveniently sized, they take up minimal space in handbags, backpacks, baby bags, pouches, first aid kits and cars.

The Antabax sanitizing range provides 24-hour protection and kills up to 99.9% of harmful germs. Formulated with skin vitamins and Aloe Vera to keep skin healthy and moisturized, its Derma Protect System contains Micro Moisture Serum to leave hands soft, smooth and healthy. Dermatologically tested to be gentle on delicate skin, the range is suitable for daily use.

All Antabax products are certified Halal, giving Muslims full confidence in using them.


Antabax Antibacterial Wipes are ideal for a quick clean-up when you don’t have access to soap and water, for example when you shop at a bazaar or the wet markets. Pack some for the balik kampung journey to tidy up the little ones, and yourself. Place some on the coffee table during Raya so that guests can clean their hands before they reach for cookies and cakes.

Use the Antabax Sanitizer Spray to spray shopping trolley handles, and handrails or handholds in buses or trains during your commute. It is especially useful to clean public toilet seats. Spray onto the toilet seat, wipe down with tissue and you are good to go.

The Antabax Gel Sanitizer works best when rubbed between hands and fingers as a thorough cleanse from germs, when soap and water are not available.

According to Ms. Mandy Lee, the Senior Brand Manager of Household & Personal Care department at Lam Soon Edible Oils Sdn Bhd, maintaining good health is closely linked to practising good personal hygiene. Simple and quick hygiene practises can make a big difference in reducing the risk of communicable diseases, especially those that are spread by unclean hands especially during festive seasons.

“During Ramadan and Hari Raya, we are interacting with more people than usual, with family and friends coming from all over Malaysia and overseas.  It is good to be vigilant and practice good hygiene as a preventive measure, and keeping clean for peace of mind,” said Ms. Lee.

The Antabax sanitizing range is available in leading pharmacies and retailers nationwide including Guardian, Watsons, AEON and many more.
