TikTok influencers are promoting beauty products on the platform, making it easy for consumers to purchase them. These products are often surprisingly cheap, prompting speculation about the profitability of the producing companies.
Like most people who spend time online, I have fallen victim to deceptive purchases. Talk about “budol” finds.
To address this, UL Skin Sciences Inc. (ULSSI) organized a media event, engaging both traditional and social media figures. The goal is to empower their followers with discernment, ensuring informed choices rather than succumbing to sales pitches and charming narratives.
With so many beauty products available online and on store shelves, it’s crucial to choose those scientifically proven to be safe, effective, and tailored to your specific needs.
ULSSI is a Filipino personal care company that emphasizes its commitment to offering scientifically validated, safe, and effective beauty and well-being solutions.
During the event, an executive from the company said that they conducted tests revealing discrepancies in SPF levels among sunscreen products. Some claimed SPF 30 but tested as low as SPF 8. This revelation prompted ULSSI to collaborate with content creators, aiming to enhance their awareness and, consequently, educate their audiences.
“We’ve done a few tests and discovered that there are companies that indicate that their sunscreen products have SPF 30 only to appear in our tests that they only have SPF 8. This is the reason why we wanted to tap content creators so they would be educated on this matter. We can work together so they could educate their audiences as well,” the executive said.
As the only Filipino personal care company that is backed by health and science, ULSSI offers a range of products that empower lives through beauty and well-being solutions that people trust and love.
To present the safety and effectiveness of its products, ULSSI set up Power House Lab which showcased mini-science labs that held live demonstrations of their brand promise. One of the stations showed how the Myra Classic Moisturizing Vitamin Lotion has a light and non-greasy feel while keeping the skin moisturized for 48 hours.
Another station demonstrated the Celeteque DermoScience Ultra Hydrating Essence’s superiority as a facial moisturizer, formulated with potent Hyaluronic Acid that acts as a powerful moisture magnet.
Included under the ULSSI range of personal care products are legacy brands in their respective categories, including Myra-E, which is the country’s Number 1 vitamin E capsule brand. The company also leads in the Intimate Care category with pH Care and GynePro. Celeteque, which was first introduced in 2006, has forged its identity as a premier derma-tested and science-based beauty brand in Face Care.
ULSSI likewise highlighted innovative products that answer specific lifestyle concerns of Filipinos. Lactezin helps to eliminate pimples and blemishes for that boost of confidence to face the world on your own terms. Equiva is a mindfully-formulated sensitive skincare line of dermatologically-tested non-irritating formulas with a pH level of 5.5, making it an stress-free choice for sensitive skin. Fortima offers lakas-ganda resistensiya supplementation for busy Filipinas with its combination of Vitamin E, Vitamin C, and Zinc.
ULSSI’s latest product DirtBugSun is the only deet-free mosquito repellent with added SPF in the Philippines. Its active ingredient (IR3535) is clinically proven to provide up to 4.5 hours of protection against dengue-causing mosquitoes.
ULSSI conducts clinical and safety studies to ensure that its products deliver its promised claims and benefits. It adopts both pharmacovigilance and cosmetovigilance systems to monitor and document any possible adverse reaction to its products.
“All of these efforts are conducted as part of ULSSI’s commitment to provide high quality, safe, and effective health and beauty products to its customers. We want to empower them through beauty and well-being with excellent products that are accessible to them,” says Ma. Christine C. Navarette-Catanghal, ULSSI- Category Head.
