COCOLINE Naturals: Virgin Coconut oil with a Modern Beauty Twist

 

IMG_5447

Last January 29, 2015, Cocoline Naturals Products stages a Grand Launch on their products that are locally manufactured delicately made for everyone who would want to have an Anti bacterial, Anti fungal and any other kind of problems on skin that has been intensively proven as the answer to the common problems we have through the Natures Coconut Oil and Papaya that is just one or two of the so many kinds of herbs we are normally  producing  here in our country.

Thousands of products and brands have claimed all sorts of beauty promises. It is surprising to know, however, that when asked, top Hollywood celebrities swear by the use of Virgin Coconut Oil.

The humble coconut has been getting a lot of boost worldwide due to the scientific uncovering of its 300+ wonderful benefits that outperform other oils or beauty products. Due to its unmatched powers, scientists call it “the miracle fruit.

International society writers gave coconut its moniker, the “it” fruit, due to its growing endorsements by international A-listers like Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Aniston, Rihanna, Cate Blanchet, Jennifer Lopez, Gisele Bundchen, the Victoria’s Secret angels, the Kardashians and even Madonna, who admitted that it is the secret to her everlasting glow and vitality.

IMG_5444 Amidst all these, not all are easily embracing coconuts due to personal preferences for image, scent and other beauty concerns. Thus, a new brand called COCOLINE Naturals was born.

“There is a growing need for healthy alternative beauty products,” says COCOLINE president Rica King. “We are giving the power of coconut a supplemental twist through a product line aimed to delight its users with its look, smell, and feel, while addressing the modern woman’s health and beauty needs,” she adds.

COCOLINE Naturals are paraben-free. Parabens and other synthetic chemicals can be toxic to the body. It was found that 98% of breast cancer tissues studied were paraben-laden. As more chemicals are introduced to our bodies, weakened cells lead to illness. There is definitely a growing concern worldwide. And with this, prevention is always better than cure.

For its maiden launch, COCOLINE Naturals covers two main beauty needs through its two variants: Intensive Moisturizer and Triple Whitening. Both lines are available in lotion, body wash, and beauty bar soap.

COCOLINE Naturals Intensive Moisturizer provides anti-oxidant, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal properties of virgin coconut oil with the addition of licorice extracts that are known to have good anti-inflammatory and skin calming properties while helping even-out skin tone. It also has milk to provide additional nourishing to the skin without that oily feeling.

For those who’d like to achieve fairer looking skin, COCOLINE Naturals Triple Whitening saves the day. It infuses the wonders of virgin coconut oil with the skin lightening powers of papaya enzyme, Kojic Acid and Vitamin C. Its lotion provides a matte finish for a natural looking coverage and SPF10 for daily protection from harmful UVA/UVB rays.

Aside from elevating our country’s competitiveness in the world’s health and beauty market, COCOLINE also promotes an important advocacy that rallies support for our local coconut industry. “The Philippines is known to be one of the biggest suppliers of coconut products to the world, and we are home to the best quality of coconut oil in the market. Our local coconut should be a source of pride and should be given the right support and attention,” asserts King.

COCOLINE Naturals aim to be world class in both packaging and formulation. “We want Filipinos to be proud of the quality we can produce, not only for the local consumers, but also for the coconut-loving international market,” adds King. COCOLINE is bent to offer true health and beauty products that are caring naturally.

 IMG_5331

Last Saturday, January 10, 2015, a very complicated subject with regards to sex problem between husband and wives was discussed and being meticulously debated and reproved  by non other than Dr. Margarita Holmes being one of the finest and the very first lady Doctor who has openly discussed any problem under the sun with regards to sex. She further discussed some of the reasons why some marriages was broken and not being settled.

IMG_9450

Premature Ejaculation has been one of the silent problem in many Asian nation like the Philippines due to its culture and its traditional values. Today, It’s high time that together with the problem on Erectioe Disfunction  that has been openly being treated and promoted , Meranini Philippines through Dr.Dennis Serrano wanting to help Filipino  family to be enlightened  that such case is treatable and can be considered as minor as far as both parties agrees to have this kind of medication.

Merarini Philippines continues to promote its Community to Control PE advocacy campaign this 2015 with its Happy Wife, Happy Life event.

IMG_9453

When it comes to sexual intimacy, couples need to be more open with their partners about what satisfies them.

Given that the two of you share a special bond, there's no reason for you to not be comfortable about discussing what you like - and don't like about sex. After all, an activity that is meant to be enjoyed, should provide fulfillment for both parties.

IMG_9476

As such, Men arini Philippines together with the Philippine Urological Association, boldly launched its Commit to Control PE Advocacy campaign last year to address one of the more pressing issues regarding sexual intimacy - premature ejaculation.

The campaign is meant to make couples more comfortable about discussing their intimacy concerns with each other, without it being a cause of insecurity or dissatisfaction.

This is because premature ejaculation can gravely affect one's relationship when left undiscussed - and untreated.

Menarini Philippines strongly believes in this advocacy which is often left untreated because it is a topic that is usually considered taboo even in these modern times. The pharmaceutical giant hopes to make a stronger impact among Filipino couples on their campaign this year with more events like this.

IMG_20150111_131639

Last Friday, January 9, 2015 Visit Bohol 2015 was finally launched  at Glorietta Activity Center Glorietta 1 Makati City. It was a scene of positive impact where one of the top producers of crops, top income generating place and one of the most admired place in the Visaya’s region in the Philippines has been re-established and regained in its best position.

The province of Bohol shows how it defiantly rose from the rubble as it introduces “Visit Bohol 2015,” a year-round tourism campaign that aims to revitalize its image and entice more visitors to come to Bohol.

IMG_20150109_164510

Launched under the leadership of Gov. Edgar Chatto, “Visit Bohol 2015” seeks to position the province as a top-notch tourist destination with its amazing natural attractions and its friendly and honest people.

The tourism campaign kicked off via a three-day Bohol Travel Fair at the Glorietta Activity Center in Makati City, starting today until January 11, 2015.

IMG_9430

Organized by the Bohol Provincial Tourism Council Inc. under Atty. Lucas Nunag, the travel fair gathered together all major players in the Bohol tourism sector with a single-minded objective of providing a strong boost to Bohol’s tourism industry.

“For years, Bohol has always been in the hearts of every Filipino, not only as an eco-cultural tourism landmark but as a home to a number of our country’s pride. As we felt how our kababayans share our grief during the devastating catastrophe that hit our province, we now feel the surge of support as we pave the road to recovery and come back in the tourism map. With Visit Bohol 2015, expect a much better and bolder Bohol – ready to welcome all of you to our beautiful province. We invite you to visit and be awed not just by the wonderful sites Bohol has to offer, but also by the endearing graciousness, hospitality and trustworthiness of Boholanos,” says Governor Chatto during the opening ceremonies of the Bohol Travel Fair.

The launch event, which was supposed to be held on December 8 to 10, 2014, was rescheduled due to super typhoon Ruby that slammed parts of the country. Now the campaign is going full blast and ready to entice residents and tourists to visit Bohol.

Bohol is known for its awe-inspiring “Chocolate Hills,” rustic and centuries-old churches in Baclayon and Loboc, the ever-lovable “tarsier,” and of course, the never-ending smiles and hospitable culture of its people. Aside from that, Bohol boasts of having some of the best white-sand beaches in the world like those in Panglao and Anda, and is fast gaining ground as a top eco-cultural tourism spot because of its numerous mystical cave sites, serene rivers, enchanting waterfalls and mangroves, spellbinding marine sanctuaries and diving sites, and adventure-oriented attractions.
“Our dream is to make Bohol a tourism superpower and top holiday destination. With the help of our partners and other significant stakeholders from the public and private sectors, we believe this is
achievable,” adds Governor Chatto.
