Novuhair introduces 3-in-1 Pack Nature’s answer to hair loss!


Novuhair introduces 3-in-1 Pack Nature’s answer to hair loss, now more improved

Years of research and testing of herbal ingredients culminated to the perfect concoction that finally solves hair loss!

Nutramedica, manufacturer and exclusive distributor of Novuhair, introduces the highly anticipated Novuhair 3-in-1 Pack which now comes with an herbal conditioner to complement the herbal shampoo and topical scalp lotion.

The trio is available in 200mL bottles each, bundled as a set to provide users with Novuhair’s optimum benefits as a hair loss solution.

“We were amazed by the big demand from our customers clamoring for an herbal conditioner. Same as with the shampoo and topical scalp lotion, the conditioner has all-natural active ingredients which include herbal extracts, essential oils and co-factor nutrients,” said Mae Velilla, Chief Operating Officer of Nutramedica.

The Novuhair brand rejuvenates hair follicles and improves blood circulation to the scalp to stimulate hair growth. It also provides optimum nutrition to combat hair loss and hair thinning.

Developed to prepare the scalp for the application of Novuhair Topical Scalp Lotion, Novuhair Herbal Shampoo softens the hair, and nourishes the scalp through pure botanical extracts. The Novuhair Herbal Conditioner, meanwhile, helps moisturize and condition the hair, giving it a shinier look, making it suppler, and nourishing its overall health while being gentle for everyday use.

“When used in combination, Novuhair Topical Scalp Lotion, Novuhair Herbal Shampoo and Novuhair Conditioner deliver greater effectiveness and significantly better results than when used individually,” added Velilla.

A clinical trial conducted last year by renowned hair and scalp expert Dr. Rica Mallari showed a 100% success rate among the volunteers. All subjects experienced no progression of hair loss and a decrease in hair shedding. More importantly, no side effects were experienced by the subjects. 

An adult normally sheds 100 to 150 strands a day. Factors such as hereditary disorder, underlying medical illness, major surgery, hormonal problems, childbirth, stress, air pollutants, exposure to sunlight, medications and infections may cause excessive hair loss.

Moringaoleifera or malunggay is one ingredient that helps restore the skin’s condition and prevent falling hair. Sweet almond oil, another ingredient, is a moisture-rich oil that contains vitamins A, B1, B6 and E, as well as minerals such as magnesium and iron. Scientifically known as prunusamygdalus, sweet almond oil easily penetrates the hair shaft and follicles, relieving hair dryness and itching and providing nourishment to the hair to promote hair growth.

Other ingredients include panax ginseng, which improves blood circulation to the scalp, as well as ginger, which is also a hair bulb nutrient and stimulant. Together with aloe, they become an effective agent for hair growth and the prevention of falling hair.

Lavender helps relieve itching, and like rosemary, another ingredient, it contains properties that help combat dandruff and disinfects the scalp. Lemongrass helps clean the scalp’s pores, while peppermint is known to slow the growth of bacteria and fungi, aside from having a relaxing effect on the muscles.

Novuhair Herbal Shampoo and Conditioner may be used during bathing, to be followed by the Scalp Lotion. Simply massage a generous amount of the lotion onto the scalp for five to ten minutes, and then rinse off or leave on as a hair-styling agent.

While there are no known contraindications to Novuhair Herbal Conditioner, users are pre-cautioned against use in cases of sensitivity to the ingredients. Novuhair herbal products are only for topical use and may not be ingested.

The Novuhair 3-in-1 Topical Scalp Lotion, Herbal Shampoo and Herbal Conditioner Pack is available at all Mercury Drug and Watsons stores. Suggested retail price of the Novuhair 3-in1 Pack P4,980.

BUILDING THE IMAGE OF OUR NATION THROUGH CANON IMAGENATION


BUILDING THE IMAGE OF OUR NATION THROUGH CANON IMAGENATION


Canon ImageNation. This campaign started back in 2007 when Canon Marketing (Philippines), Inc. celebrated its 10th anniversary. This campaign aimed to showcase the Filipinos’ love for images. It is a tribute to the millions and even billions of images captured, stored and shared by Canon users throughout the years.

This year, Canon’s vision of building a community of image-loving Filipinos has taken on greater heights. Canon has recently partnered with the Philippine Information Agency (PIA) and the partnership aims to engage the nation to build a deeper image of the country through capturing its beautiful heritage, picturesque tourist destinations, rich culture and the hospitable Filipino spirit.

“With the launch of the Department of Tourism’s ‘It’s more fun in the Philippines” campaign, we’ve already seen a shift in people’s perception here and abroad,” shares Undersecretary Jose Mari Oquineña. “We want to complement that with something that specifically targets Filipinos and to make them excited about their own country, not only the beautiful scenery but also about core Filipino values and culture.”

PICTURE A BETTER NATION.

Canon has been very active in the area of nation-building over the past years. Guided by its corporate philosophy of kyosei which means living and working together for the common good, Canon has launched several banner programs for its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) projects ranging from social welfare development to educational efforts to environmental and cultural conservation and preservation. These programs are part and parcel of Canon’s aim to continuously uplift the community where it serves.

 “With more than seventy years of imaging expertise, we believe that we can be able to immortalize in time all the efforts that we do here in this beautiful country through our expansive input-to-output products and solutions,” said Alan Chng, President & CEO of Canon Marketing (Philippines), Inc. “We hope that the photos we capture during these advocacy projects would create awareness, ignite patriotism and the spirit of bayanihan in everyone, and inspire them to join us in improving the Philippines to its full potential.”

Canon has four flagship CSR programs covering initiatives in the areas of humanitarian aid and disaster relief, environment, education and science, arts, and social welfare, namely the Canon Advocacy Team (A Team), Canon GreenNation, Canon Advocacy for Reinforcing Education (CARE) and Print for Smiles programs.

“We would like to be the instrument of positive change in this country and we hope that through our efforts, we have shown our commitment in creating a difference in the community where we serve. We triedto capture the hearts of these programs and show them to the public because we believe that through these moving images, we can show to the whole world that each of us can make a difference,” said Ernalou Del Rosario, Corporate Communications Manager of Canon Marketing (Philippines), Inc.

Ika 115 Taon ng Kasarinlan Ng Pilipinas


Ika 115 Taon ng Kasarinlan Ng Pilipinas

Isang mapagpalayang araw ng kasarinlan! Sa Pilipinas na ating bansa, marami ang nagtatanong kung tayo'y talagang malaya.

Sa ika-isang daan at labing limang taon ng Kasarinlan, talaga bang tayo'y malaya?

Minamahal mo ba talaga ang Pilipinas? Alam mo pa ba ang Panatang Makabayan? 

Isabuhay natin ang pagiging Makabayang Pilipino, sa isip, sa salita at sa gawa.  Sauluhin mo muli ang iyong kinagisnan panata.

Ang taong hindi marunong magmahal sa sariling wika ay higit pa sa mabaho at sa malansang isda.- Jose Rizal

Panatang Makabayan Old Version

Iniibig ko ang Pilipinas.
Ito ang aking lupang sinilangan.
Ito ang tahanan ng aking lahi.
Ako'y kanyang kinukupkop at tinutulungan
Upang maging malakas, maligaya at kapakipakinabang.

Bilang ganti ay diringgin ko ang payo ng aking mga magulang.
Susundin ko ang mga tuntunin ng aking paaralan.
Tutuparin ko ang tunkulin ng isang mamamayang makabayan at masunurin sa batas.

Paglilingkuran ko ang aking bayan ng walang pag-iimbot at ng buong katapatan.
Sisikapin kong maging isang tunay na Pilipino, sa isip, sa salita at sa gawa.



Panatang Makabayan New Version By Raul Roco

Iniibig ko ang Pilipinas, aking lupang sinilangan, tahanan ng aking lahi, kinukupkop ako at tinutulungan maging malakas, masipag at marangal.

Dahil mahal ko ang Pilipinas, diringgin ko ang payo ng aking magulang, susundin ko ang tuntunin ng paaralan, tutuparin ko ang tungkulin ng mamamayang makabayan: naglilingkod, nag-aaral at nagdarasal ng buong katapatan.

Iaalay ko ang aking buhay, pangarap, pagsisikap sa bansang Pilipinas.
