In recent weeks, I have been so obsessed with learning about skin care and finding effective beauty products. I went on a deep dive and spent so much time watching video tutorials and reviews online to better understand product ingredients. You can imagine my excitement when I got the invitation to UL Skin Sciences Inc.’s launch of its latest beauty products (Coincidentally, I was just trying out one of those, the facial cleanser Equiva!).

In an age where influencers are paid to lure us into buying different products through their “reviews,” it is hard to filter out which ones are authentic. It was such a thrill to learn more about how potent some beauty product ingredients are.

In the wide landscape of beauty products and well-being supplements available both online and on physical store shelves, the quest for scientifically proven, safe, and effective options tailored to individual needs becomes increasingly critical. UL Skin Sciences Inc. (ULSSI), as the sole Filipino personal care company supported by health and science, stands out by offering a comprehensive range of products. These products are designed to enhance lives through trusted and beloved beauty and well-being solutions.

Beauty field trip

To affirm the safety and efficacy of its offerings, ULSSI orchestrated the Power House Lab event on Nov. 20, a noteworthy initiative featuring mini-science labs presenting live demonstrations of their brand commitments. Serving as a stronghold of scientific integrity, the Power House Lab aimed to shed light on the meticulous research and testing behind each ULSSI product. This concerted effort ensures the availability of accessible and high-quality beauty products for all Filipinos.

The event, replete with engaging programs, entertaining games, and an exclusive glimpse into the scientific underpinnings of ULSSI brands, provided attendees with valuable insights. Scientific demonstrations and insightful dialogues unfolded, revealing the intricacies of how each favored ULSSI product functions. One station, for instance, illustrated the light and non-greasy feel of the Myra Classic Moisturizing Vitamin Lotion, showcasing its ability to keep the skin moisturized for an impressive 48 hours. A corneometer, integrated into an MPA machine, indicated a remarkable 30% increase in moisture after just 30 minutes, affirming the lotion’s effectiveness. Another station spotlighted the Celeteque DermoScience Ultra Hydrating Essence, emphasizing its superiority as a facial moisturizer. Formulated with potent Hyaluronic Acid, it acts as a moisture magnet, as evidenced by water-growing balls demonstrating reduced transepidermal water loss and enhanced skin moisturization.

ULSSI’s commitment to transparency and scientific validation shines through events like Power House Lab, offering consumers a deeper understanding of the reliability and excellence inherent in their beauty and well-being solutions.

 “These demonstrations serve to reiterate the quality of our products, how they are backed by science, and how we deliver on our promise. By showcasing how each product is beneficial for our skin and entire well-being, we are able to highlight that ULSSI is a credible beauty brand and that our brands are the simple solutions to all your beauty and personal care needs,” says Marie Della Rhodora P. Carillo, Division Vice President and Head of ULSSI R&D.

She adds that all components of ULSSI products are listed down in the product packaging as part of their commitment to transparency for their consumers. “At a time when there are so many products out there, consumers are empowered to look into what really goes into our products and how stringent our research and development process is.”

“Health and science are core to us, as we are part of the UNILAB Group that has been trusted by generations of Filipinos for their health care needs. What’s more, since we are a Filipino company, we really invest in true consumer centricity, with our research that is focused on local consumer insights, with majority of our products that are designed for our skin and the environmental factors that we face on a daily basis,” says Ma. Christine C. Navarette-Catanghal, ULSSI- Category Head.    

Celebrating beauty and confidence for Filipinas

“We are proud to be a local company with roots deeply embedded in the Philippines. This offers us an intimate understanding of our people’s unique needs, and we constantly innovate to meet those needs with products you can trust. Every day is a grind for us – doing extensive research and testing to better improve our formulas, and come up with new products for every type of Filipina skin,” shares Kathryn Carag, Division Vice President and Head of ULSSI Marketing.

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. Myra-E offers the same beauty benefits in its hand and body lotion, facial moisturizers, facial wash, and soap, providing the power to give you that standout healthy glow.

The company also leads in the Intimate Care category with pH Care and GynePro. pH Care  celebrates its 20th birthday this year as the top feminine wash in the Philippines, constantly understanding Filipinas’ feminine needs and freeing them from worries of bacteria and odor ‘down there’. GynePro is the Number 1 ‘red day’ wash that provides 50x superior protection against odor, itch, and irritation, versus other feminine wash brands.

Celeteque, which was first introduced in 2006, has forged its identity as a premier derma-tested and science-based beauty brand in Face Care, addressing a spectrum of skin concerns through its innovative smart beauty solutions with its proven hydrating benefit.

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 a 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.
