Nu Skin Introduces the Next Generation of Smart Skin Carewith ageLOC LumiSpa iO

New smart treatment and cleansing device offers a connected experience
for personalized treatments and superior skin care

Nu Skin Philippines, a subsidiary of Nu Skin Enterprises (NYSE: NUS), a global beauty and wellness leader, today introduced a smart skin treatment and cleansing device with a connected, immersive experience. Featuring Nu Skin’s patented micropulse technology, the new ageLOC® LumiSpa® iO system takes personalized beauty to a new level with customized treatment options, intelligent coaching, skin care routine tracking and more. The ageLOCLumiSpa iO is the latest innovation from the world’s best-selling brand for beauty device systems for five consecutive years.1

The ageLOC LumiSpa iO system includes five cleanser options that are scientifically formulated to enable precise cleansing and interaction with the skin. In conjunction with the Nu Skin VeraTM app released earlier this year, the ageLOC LumiSpa iO unlocks a new world of personalized skin care experiences. 

Using the Nu Skin Vera app, users can create and save customized facial treatments that target key areas including the face, neck and décolleté, as well as treatments that target the gentle skin around the eyes with the ageLOC LumiSpa Accent attachment. Users can also track usage, earn badges and awards, and receive tailored product recommendations based on skin care goals. Intelligent coaching with the device’s smart sensors helps guide optimal movement and pressure of the device during treatments.     

“The ageLOC LumiSpa iO represents our most advanced skin care device yet,” said Ryan Napierski, CEO of Nu Skin. “We’ve created a one-of-a-kind beauty device that integrates IoT technology to provide greater insights into a consumer’s personal beauty and wellness journey. Our scientific rigor in integrating smart beauty devices with scientifically formulated serums and treatments is a unique strength that other beauty brands can’t easily duplicate.”

Nu Skin continues to lead the way in the science of beauty devices with its proprietary micropulse oscillation technology, a unique counter-rotating action that draws out dirt, oil, makeup, pollutants, and toxins and lifts them away without irritating skin. Designed to be microbiome friendly, the LumiSpa iO respects the skin’s pH to help preserve its natural moisture barrier and doesn’t disrupt the skin’s natural microbiome balance—no matter a user’s age or skin type. The unique cleansing capabilities of the treatment heads help to maximize product efficacy by making skin more receptive to subsequent products.

The smart, rechargeable ageLOC LumiSpa iO device pairs with the Nu Skin Vera app to offer a personalized skin care experience, including:

  • Skin consultation. An intuitive digital skin consultation tool uses a guided questionnaire to discover more about the user’s skin and lifestyle. Users can also snap a photo and leverage the app’s artificial intelligence (AI) technology to identify possible skin concerns. An advanced algorithm provides personalized product recommendations. 
  • Tutorials. Synchronized treatments provide a step-by-step guide to more youthful, healthy-looking skin.
  • Intelligent coaching. Smart device sensors intelligently guide users to achieve optimal movement and pressure during treatments. The smart sensors also recognize which treatment head is attached and alert when it’s time to replace.
  • Customized facial treatments. Send and save personalized treatments from phone to device with the app or create customized treatments by adjusting the time and facial areas, e.g., treatments for morning or evening, or after a workout or heavy makeup use.
  • Selfie timeline. See skin’s progress over time—week to week, month to month, or any day in between with the selfie timeline. Sharing features in the Nu Skin Vera app makes it easy to share before-and-after results with friends.

“Consumers spend hundreds of dollars on premium beauty products and high-end spa treatments to minimize the appearance of dull skin, large pores and uneven texture,” said Steve Hatchett, executive vice president and chief product officer at Nu Skin. “The ageLOC LumiSpa iO is a cost-effective, at-home treatment device to achieve brighter, healthier and more youthful-looking skin with a spa-like experience. Our patented counter-rotating action also deeply cleanses the skin so it’s more receptive to subsequent products, helping consumers make the most of their skin care investments.”

Clinical Testing and Skin Benefits

In a 12-week clinical efficacy study conducted by Nu Skin, clinical grading noted that individuals who used ageLOC LumiSpa with the Normal/Combo treatment cleanser reported visible improvements across multiple skin characteristics, including:

  • 58% improvement in softness
  • 47% improvement in smoothness
  • 40% improvement in brightness
  • 34% improvement in radiance

Participants noticed several of these improvements after just one use.

ageLOCLumiSpa iO System

The ageLOC LumiSpa iO system is gentle enough for twice-daily use on the face, neck and décolleté. The additional ageLOC LumiSpa Accent attachment targets the delicate area around the eyes with the LumiSpa IdealEyes® Activating Eye Cream

  • ageLOCLumiSpa iO device: The ageLOC LumiSpa iO device uses patented, counter-oscillation technology to deliver seven key benefits in just two minutes twice per day. The dual-action device provides a superior skin-perfecting treatment and deep cleansing benefits simultaneously. With its soft silicone treatment head, the proprietary micropulse oscillation technology enables the device to move at the precise frequency to promote skin renewal, revealing smoother, softer skin after just one use. The new device also comes with a magnetic charger for convenient, inductive charging and is waterproof, making it perfect for keeping in the shower or on the counter for easy access.
  • ageLOCLumiSpa iO cleansers: The device works in tandem with the five ageLOCLumiSpa iO facial cleansers: Dry, Normal/Combo, Oily, Sensitive and Blemish Prone. Each contains key ingredients to address specific skin needs most accurately.

  • ageLOC LumiSpa treatment heads: The Gentle treatment head is recommended for sensitive or acne-prone skin. The Normal treatment head is for most skin types and the Firm treatment head is the most aggressive but not recommended for those with sensitive skin or acne-prone skin. Users can use different heads for different experiences each day.
  • ageLOCLumiSpa iO Accent head: To target the delicate area around the eyes, the ageLOCLumiSpa iO Accent attachment is a one-of-a-kind treatment head that gently exfoliates skin and deeply stimulates the area around the eyes. The silicone treatment head and micropulse oscillation, when paired with ageLOC LumiSpa IdealEyes, targets under-eye bags, puffiness and under-eye circles.

Awards
Having just launched late this year, ageLOC LumiSpa iO is already receiving worldwide buzz including features in several news outlets, and bagging the “New Product of the Year” Award at the 2022 Business Intelligence Group (BIG) Awards for Business. [2] 

#BetterTogether: ageLOC LumiSpa iO and Inner Focus Collagen Plus
ageLOC LumiSpa iO is great on its own, but even better when paired with Inner Focus Collagen Plus. Designed to boost collagen and elastin production in the skin, visibly reduce fine line and wrinkles, and support healthy hydration, Inner Focus Collagen Plus is a delicious powdered drink that delivers even better results when taken alongside Nu Skin’s latest beauty device.

In the same clinical study, people who took Inner Focus Collagen Plus once a day and also used the ageLOC LumiSpa daily noticed nearly double the visible texture benefits compared to using an ageLOC LumiSpa regimen on its own [3], as well as additional improvements in radiance and overall appearance.

Availability

The ageLOCLumiSpa iO is now available in the Philippines for Php14,200 with 1 ageLOC LumiSpa Activating Cleanser. For more information, please visit nuskin.com.ph. The Nu Skin Vera appis available for download from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.


Treatment heads sold separately including Gentle, Normal, and Firm variants, as well as the ageLOC LumiSpa iO Accent head will be available on the 2nd week of December 2022.

NEW DUTY FREE STORES: Upholding the Pasalubong Shopping Tradition

Through the years, pasalubong shopping has become synonymous with Duty Free shopping, thanks to the country’s overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) and balikbayans who have made homecoming gifts a Filipino tradition.

 For the Filipino traveler, no arrival from abroad or even departure from the country is complete without a pack of chocolates for the children, a bottle of the wife’s favorite perfume or the finest wines to share with friends.

Duty Free Philippines Corporation (DFPC) was created to primarily meet the international traveler’s Duty Free shopping needs. As travel and tourism are now regaining its pre-pandemic state, DFPC is all set to expand its operations to recapture the market.  Aside from the two Manila downtown malls, Fiestamall and Luxe, DFPC has arrival and departure outlets at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) terminals and at the Mactan Cebu International Airport (MCIA). Recently, DFPC has set up stores at some of the country’s top tourist destinations.  Tourists can now shop at the Duty Free departure store at the Kalibo International Airport after their vacation in Boracay, while travelers to Iloilo can drop by the arrival Duty Free outlet at the Iloilo International Airport. 

This December 2022, Duty Free shopping will be available to tourists and guests at the Hilton Hotel in Clark, Pampanga

True to its newest tagline “Only the Best”, DFPC is determined to be the country’s BEST travel retailer by offering only the BEST products and service to its customers.  Despite the pandemic’s profound impact on the Tourism attached agency’s business, DFPC continues to enhance its merchandise mix, programs and services to meet the evolving consumer preferences and retail trends. All these efforts are geared for DFPC to regain profitability and hence be able to contribute to the government’s tourism projects.

Level Up With Cetaphil Ultra Protect

Cetaphil celebrated the launch of Cetaphil Ultra Protect with the Level-Up Series to advocate the importance of whole-body wellness, including healthy skin. 

This fitness activation took place in four different boutique fitness studios: Electric Studio for that cardio fix, ONELIFE Private Studio to elongate the body, Polecats to learn how to move confidently, and now Rebel to lean in and discover that well of inner strength.

Each event was met with excitement from present content creators and members of the media, especially those who hadn’t done the chosen activities before. Because there were four different studios, each with different exercises, Cetaphil was able to provide a variety of experiences.

Cetaphil encouraged everyone to get fit in the name of holistic health, after which a full wash with Cetaphil Ultra Protect was encouraged because Cetaphil knows that the skin is the first line of defense against germs; hence it is necessary to make it as fit as the body.

Bodies were sweating in full force, muscles were pushed to the limit, and endorphins reached an all-time high, all in time to try Cetaphil Ultra Protect and to see the importance of having a clean, moisturized body.

Cetaphil Ultra Protect

Cetaphil Ultra Protect is a cleansing bar that combines the benefits of wider germ protection with gentle yet intense skin hydration.

It washes away 99.9% of germs and is specifically designed for frequent daily use, preventing and soothing skin irritation. The skin is now instantly protected and hydrated.

As the holidays are coming up and it is once more time to see friends and family, now more than ever, it is time to #BeUltraProtected with Cetaphil Ultra Protect.

One of the ways MCU is improving is with the new branding

The Manila Central University, popularly known as MCU and formerly known as the Escuela de Farmacia del Liceo de Manila, is a private, non-sectarian institution of primary and higher education with a campus located on EDSA in Caloocan. Dr. Alejandro M. Albert, who also served as its first Director, founded it in 1904.

In the past 118 years, MCU has continued to innovate because it understands that changing one’s perspective can result in discoveries that progress technology and education. By upgrading its systems, processes, and policies, MCU continues to rise to the challenge of being a creative institution in a constantly changing environment.

One of the ways MCU is improving is with the new branding. This will help the community and raise awareness of the MCU brand as we enter a new era. They have introduced additional courses in addition to their well-known medical and health programs, and they are expanding internationally through alliances and collaborations. The school’s choice to hire multi-professional degree holders as faculty members also contributes to its capacity to create Board Topnotchers and good ratings for exam results.

The second innovation is the introduction of the Filemon D. Tanchoco Sr. Scientific Discoverer Award; The Scientific Discoverer Award seeks to recognize and inspire students to do their best work. The pursuit of new information is crucial to the advancement of science as well as the solution to the most significant problems threatening human welfare. Atty. Tanchoco wants to recognize scientists and innovators whose discoveries will help the Filipino people or are incredibly significant and will advance human well-being.

Lastly, through collaborations with Palafox architects, who has a strategy for campus building restorations, modernity can also be ensured. During the recent tour, where guests from various media outlets were taken around campus, MCU showed the ongoing campus developments and renovations, proving that though they’ve had 118 years of excellency, MCU strives to do more and be more, enabling them to compete with the country’s best of the best universities.

“Our colleges and universities are called on to face and answer the challenge of excellence. We must produce men and women with highly sophisticated inquiring minds since it is in the minds of our people that we build this dream of greatness, it is in the mind of the young Filipinos where we should plant the seeds of intellectual leadership!” – Dr. Filemon G. Tanchoco Jr.

Believing that values-based education offered salvation from poverty, Filemon Dionisio Tanchoco dedicated his life to making that vision a reality for many young Filipinos and for the nation he loved. This is what MCU stands for, what they believe in, and what they will continue to achieve.

Award winning Laguna coffee now in a cold-brew can!

This Holiday season, Pinoys can now get a chance, for a limited time, to taste the country’s award winning Liberica coffee from Sta. Maria, Laguna in a Cold Brew Kit.

The coffee used in the Cold Brew Kit won 2nd runner-up at the 2022 Japanese Barista Championship held recently in Japan.

The Philippine Liberica Coffee is being championed around the world and capturing the hearts and taste preferences of expert baristas and judges around the world by 2019 Philippine National Barista champion, Michael Harris Conlin and Henry and Sons.

With cold brew’s ever-growing popularity and countless benefits, it’s about time someone made the process of making it super easy and affordable. “Whoever adds the water makes money, but this time, we want you to be the one to add the water, so you get to save your hard-earned money,” said Conlin.

“With the ready-to-cold brew kit, you won’t have to fuss around with grind size, filters or water-to-coffee ratio. JUST ADD WATER and put it in the fridge for 12 hours, and you’ll have a perfectly extracted, super sweet, low acidity, low bitterness flavor-packed cold brew. Making a cold brew is now easier than ever with the Ready to Cold Brew kit,” added Conlin.

“We created this unique coffee blend to mirror how coffee is a slow and meticulous process. It takes five years for a newly planted tree to bear fruit, six months for pollinated flowers to grow into a ripe cherry, harvest and processing is three to four months, drying takes four to six weeks, and the parchment is rested for 90-120 days before hulling and roasting. Coffee is a slow, meticulous process, so once in a while, let’s pause and reflect on the hard work of the people who made this coffee and its long journey to your cup,” added Conlin.

How to Prepare:

  • Open the can
  • Add 150g water
  • Cover
  • Put in the refrigerator for 12-18 hr.
  • Pour and indulge

Aroma: Berries, Honey Lemon

Flavor impression: Jasmine, Aloe, Natural Orange zest, Yuzu, Violet Florals, Fuji Apples.

Stevia, a solution to the sugar shortage dilemma in PH

As the temperatures vary, many turn to refreshing drinks to help stay cool and hydrated. But if you’re watching your sugar intake, it can be challenging to find delicious and low in sugar options.

Filipinos have a big sweet tooth, with all types of food, from desserts to savory dishes containing sugar as a key ingredient. This year, the country faced a deficit in sugar production, causing sugar to skyrocket to P100 per kilo, nearly twice as expensive as its cost last year. 

This shortage has affected various industries, especially the food & beverage and agricultural sectors. Because sugar is a staple in the Filipino pantry, many people have been struggling to satisfy their sweet needs. Fortunately, Stevia, a healthy alternative can help Filipinos keep their dishes and lives sweet. Filipinos now have Stevia as a natural and healthier alternative to sugar.

Stevia is a natural sweetener derived from the leaves of the Stevia rebaudiana plant. It is 300 times sweeter than sugar but has zero calories and does not cause spikes in blood sugar levels. Stevia is better than chemical-based artificial sweeteners because it has no aftertaste or potential health risks.

More and more restaurants and other food businesses in the country are now using stevia as sweetener. With Stevia, restaurants and food businesses can sustainably sweeten their drinks and dishes. Moreover, more Filipino families can enjoy the food that they love. Stevia can be a total game changer for industries struggling to cope with the ongoing sugar shortage dilemma. 

Stevia is readily available in the Philippines produced by the country’s first FDA approved Stevia manufacturing company, Glorious Industrial & Development Corporation (GIDC), the Stevia Company.

Sweet & Fit Stevia, from GIDC, The Stevia Company is used as a natural sweetener and present in all the Glorious coffee, choco and iced tea mixes.

“We understand how important sweets are to Filipinos,” said Ms. Au De Leon, president and CEO of GIDC, The Stevia Company. That’s why we’ve made sure our products are healthier and available nationwide, empowering more Filipinos with a sweet solution to the sugar shortage dilemma.”

GIDC is tapping the hospitality industry as well as the bakers’ association to introduce as well as explore ways on how to use stevia in its various products and sweet offerings.

People who need to limit their sugar intake can now make their lives sweeter with Stevia. People don’t need to sacrifice flavor to care for their health. A teaspoon of Stevia is equivalent to three teaspoons of refined sugar. Stevia improves food and beverages naturally, unlike sugar which has been linked to obesity and diabetes. Moreover, Stevia is considered nonglycemic, meaning it does not affect one’s blood pressure levels.            

Glorious products are available in leading supermarkets and convenience stores nationwide. For more information, visit http://www.glorious.com.ph and http://www.sweetandfitstevia.com.

Huawei signs global ITU pledge to help 120 million people in remote areas connect to the digital world

Huawei has signed a global commitment to join the International Telecommunication Union’s Partner2Connect digital alliance, which will bring connectivity to about 120 million people in remote areas in more than 80 countries by 2025.

Liang Hua, Chairman of Huawei, announced the decision at the company’s 2022 Sustainability Forum, Connectivity+: Innovate for Impact. The forum explored how ICT innovation could unleash the business and social value of connectivity and drive sustainability in the digital economy era. Speakers at the event included senior leaders from the ITU and United Nations.

It is clear connectivity alone is not enough. It must be affordable, the content must be relevant and in the local language, and users must have the skills to make best use of it,” said ITU Deputy Secretary-General Malcolm Johnson. “Thank you to Huawei for their support of the Partner2Connect (P2C) Digital Coalition, and for their announced P2C pledges in the key areas of rural connectivity and digital skills.”

Siddharth Chatterjee, United Nations Resident Coordinator in China, called for “multi-stakeholder partnerships” of policymakers, the private sector, academia, and civil society to close “the sobering reality” of a digital divide which excluded a third of the global population.

“Our dynamic world urgently needs improved digital cooperation to capitalize on the transformational potential of technology to create new jobs, boost financial inclusion, close the gender gap, spur a green recovery and redesign our world to be more prosperous and inclusive,” he said. “Now is the time to act”.

In his keynote address, Dr Liang stressed that access to a stable network was a basic requirement and right in the digital age. For many who remain unconnected, access to reliable connectivity would mark the first step towards transforming their lives.

Huawei Philippines is working together with local organizations to initiate Bohol Cacao Livelihood Recovery and Rehabilitation Program to help the cacao farmers.

As one of the biggest manufacturers of cacao in the Philippines, cacao farming is one of the primary sources of income for farmers in Bohol, but over 20,000 cacao trees were affected by Typhoon Odette last year. In order to help strengthen and create stability in the cacao industry in Bohol, the farmers will receive two days training in cacao rehabilitation and restoration, integrated pest and disease management, cacao harvesting, and post-harvest care. QR Code will also be implemented to aid in cocoa inventory and traceability. They can readily know and track the condition and state of cacao trees using the QR Code.

According to a report released by GSMA last July, based on Speedtest Intelligence data, Singapore led Southeast Asian on median 5G upload speeds in Q1 2022, Thailand and the Philippines followed with 207.27 Mbps and 163.51 Mbps median download speed, respectively.

Connectivity is not just a tool for convenient communications, but will help bring everyone into the digital world, and provide them with access to more information and skills, better services, and wider business opportunities. This will, in turn, drive further social and economic development. Huawei said during the event.

As ICT infrastructure continues to evolve, innovative technologies like cloud and AI are allowing those in rural and remote areas to enjoy the convenience of a digital world. Huawei Cloud has proposed the Everything as a Service strategy and made Huawei’s more than 30 years of technical expertise and digital transformation experience available through cloud services. This means that access to Huawei’s digital infrastructure capabilities on the cloud is now just as easy, affordable, and sustainable as water and electricity.

Digital transformation, digital talent, and new business models are all essential for balanced development in remote regions. Huawei previously announced that by 2025, with the improved ICT infrastructure, the company will work with partners to enable 500 million people to enjoy digital financial services and 500,000 people to enjoy inclusive education.

In the Philippines, Huawei also empowering educators and learners in the new normal. “To help the Filipinos get better digital education by providing diverse programs to teachers and students through innovative solutions. We are grateful to be able to contribute our effort in building a digital society in the Philippines,” said Daniel Guo, Huawei Philippines COO.

Launched in 2015, Huawei Seeds for the Future program has covered over 210 students for the past 8 years in the Philippines. ICT Academy, cooperated with USeP, MSU-IIT, DLSU at the beginning, has partnered almost 70 universities in the Philippines, covered more than 15,000 students.

Huawei is committed to inclusive development. Through its ongoing technological innovation, Huawei is contributing to a higher level of digitalization in remote regions, enabling everyone to enjoy the convenience of a digital life, and promoting the balanced development of the global digital economy.
