NOVUHAIR’S INFORMATIVE TRUTH ON HAIR CHEMICALS

Hey Guys!

Happy Halloween!

We may not be aware that we are unknowingly putting harmful chemicals on our hair thus resulting to general conditions such as migraine, nausea and skin rashes. The symptoms may be quickly attributed to stress but if you look closer to that hair product you’re using, you’ll be surprise to find the culprit.

Popularity does not equate to safety, some popular brands sold in the market are loaded with mildly toxic chemicals that may be harmful in prolonged use.



Novuhair, Nature’s answer to hair loss, gives you the lowdown on these chemicals to help you with your choices.

Myth: Shampoo must produce lots of lather in order to properly clean your hair.
Truth: Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) is a compound that helps shampoo and other cleaning product in producing foam and bubbles. Though it may effectively remove hair build-up, it can also strip off essential oils that is needed to keep your hair healthy.



Myth: Parabens has an anti-bacterial compound benefits that outweighs the harm.
Truth: Parabens are basically used to prolong the shelf life of hair and cosmetic products mostly for its antibacterial purpose. Symptoms that are related to over exposure to parabens are Atopic Dermatitis and Rosacea. Further studies also show that use of products with parabens accelerate skin damage and aging related to sun exposure.

Myth: My hair smells terrific! I love the perfume scent on my hair product.
Truth: A nice whiff of perfume might not be harmful but the fragrance that is mixed in your hair product might have come from harmful substances from highly toxic ingredients which can lead to Allergic reactions and mood swings. That perfume is better off somewhere else.

Myth: Hair products that promise straightening and smoothening effect use non-toxic Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate as a natural preservative.
Truth: Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate is a substance used in making your hair soft and bouncy, although it is considered natural preservative, also releases formaldehyde which can lead to skin and eye irritations. Prolonged use may also affect your immune system.

Use of some of these chemicals combined may also result to hair loss and other hair problems, thus, it is important to be an informed consumer. A lot of new products have saturated the market hence, read the labels for fine prints before buying.

Pharex ensures your loved one’s safety with every medication

Hey Guys!



The idea of close family ties is widespread among Filipinos as evidenced in their habits and practices. Filipinos value the concept of extended families with in-laws living in one household or overseas workers who overcome loneliness in order to support the family or of caring for the elderly members at home instead of packing them off to a hospice for the aged. But more importantly, family members care about their loved ones’ health as much as they care of their own.

Filipinos show concern for the people they love most, especially the elderly, by taking care of them when they are sick. Health concerns are usually discussed with the trusted members of the family for motivation to recover and further assistance. Indeed, oftentimes, family members come together in nursing a sickly member back to health or when paying medical bills.

Other than ensuring that their loved ones’ health are monitored, family members actively see to it that medical regimens are maintained so that they get well, expenses do not get aggravated or hospitalizations are minimized or avoided altogether.

In order to help Filipinos take better care of their loved ones, Pharex HealthCorp—the most prescribed unibranded generic medicines—has long advocated the importance of adhering to prescribed medication. This is why the Pharex 15-day Compliance Pouch or Pharex CP15 was launched. This innovative product aims to assist patients to better adhere to their treatment regimen.

“We see how individuals put importance to family and their health. And with this, we want people to know that Pharex is one with them in the care for their elder family members,” said Tomas Marcelo Agana III, President and CEO of Pharex.

The company has been in the service of Filipinos for more than 25 years, showing sincere concern for their families by providing anti-infective and chronic care drugs, as well as, vitamins.

“In line with our support to disseminate the essence of compliance, we make sure that our medicines are affordable and accessible without compromising on quality. This is our mission: to promote strict compliance to medication for recovery and a better quality of life,” Agana added.

Pharex CP15 are all available in any leading drugstores. For more details, kindly contact 433-8088 (local 820).

And that's it for today!

'till next time!

Race Against Diabetes at SUNPIOLOGY RUN: Sugar Wars

Hey guys!

Last October 11, the presscon for this year's SUNPIOLOGY RUN was held at Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila.

With HEALTH being a major financial concern for Filipinos, Sun Life of Canada (Philippines), Inc. wants to focus on preparation and prevention as keys to living a robust life. With the premium now put on healthy practices, the country's top life insurer offers three initiatives that are empowering as they are financially-rewarding: a comprehensive health protection product named 'SUN Fit and Well'; a free and informative wellness community called 'Go Well'; and of course, one of the most anticipated, star-studded charity fun race known as 'SUNPIOLOGY RUN: Sugar Wars.'

Let me talk about the SUNPIOLOGY RUN first, where you can Run for fun and funds.

For eight years now, Sun Life has been organizing a fun run that combines the excitement of celebrity watching, fund-raising, and getting fit. It has since taken on the twin advocacies of education and diabetes awareness, as shown by this year's SUNPIOLOGY RUN: Sugar Wars theme. It will be held on November 19 (Saturday), by sunset, at Camp Aguinaldo in Quezon City.


With the Philippines declared as a diabetic hot spot, Sugar Wars pushes for an active lifestyle as one of the best deterrents against this debilitating disease. Participants can choose from this distances;

500m walk / dash for kids and adults (Php350)
3K (Php700)
5K (Php800)
and 10K (Php900)

Being an obstacle course, four 'battle stations' help facilitate better understanding about this particular illness.

And for even more fun, close to a hundred Star Magic celebrities will be joining Piolo to add glitz to the event, while an after-run show will serve as the launch of Inigo Pascual's debut album featuring the official Go Well jingle "Live Life Brighter," together with surprise performances.

"I want to invite everyone to register for Sugar Wars. It's a race against diabetis, a chance to help raise funds for our beneficiaries, a great way to spend time with your star magic family," says Piolo, who created Hebreo Foundation, SUNPIOLOGY's long-time beneficiary that supports the education of children in different communities. The institute for studies on Diabetis Foundation Inc., (ISDFI), LingkodKapamilya, Noordhoff Craniofacial Foundation Philippines Inc., and Star Magic Scholars are also supported by this event.

It takes one bright step to begin a lifetime of wellness. So sign up for SUNPIOLOGY RUN: Sugar Wars at www.sunpiology.com

Be Fit and Well-protected

Though the life insurance market is rife with health-related offerings, most can only provide assistance once an illness strikes. With SUN Fit and Well, the whole journey from Prevention, Diagnosis, Treatment, and Rehabilitation is covered. This all-embracing philosophy makes it the most comprehensive product solution of its kind, with a life insurance policy for added protection and peace of mind.

"SUN Fit and Well provides coverage for 114 critical illnesses and can help replace funds used for diagnostic procedures and check-ups. But more than a usual health insurance, it provides benefits to keep customers healthy and well. It is available in limited pay and Aadvantage variants, which includes hospitalization and follow-up care with a specialist," explains Sun Life Chief Marketing officer Mylene Lopa.

Piolo as he explains about Sun Life's New TVC

The company's long-time brand ambasador stars in a new action-packed TVC, where he demonstrates a love for biking and how SUN Fit and Well fuels his active lifestyle.
