Let’s Celebrate Holiday Season With Swiss Image Essential Care Range

The festive mood chimes in as our quest to clear annual leaves begin, and that can only mean ONE thing ??

Yey, the year-end holiday season is finally upon us!!

The vacation plans you have been planning all year long are finally coming to fruition, and you can’t wait to pack and make your blissful getaway a reality. But just like a passport, your beauty regiment is just as essential, and Swiss Image is here to help keep your skin nourished and well-hydrated throughout your travels.

Swiss Image Products (5)

Hailing from Swiss Image’s Essential Care range, the three key products to have this travel season are:

swissimage_3product_HighRes

  1. Mattifying Face Wash Gel
  2. Refreshing and Mattifying Toner
  3. Absolute Hydration Day Cream.

Together, they form the staple trinity of face care routines which are cleansing, toning and moisturising – steps that are vital in achieving healthy and radiant skin.

Formulated with Swiss innovation and manufactured from one of the world’s purest ecological environments, the three products contain Alpine Glacier Water, a holy-grail beauty ingredient only found in the Swiss Alps, which allows users to enjoy its hydration properties, vitamins and minerals that provide valuable nutrients for skin vitality. Its biologically active properties also allow the easy absorption of rich essential minerals by all skin types.

Mattifying Face Wash Gel, 200ml – RM38.90

Swiss Image’s best-selling face wash provides a long-lasting mattifying effect without over-drying the skin in just a single step, so you won’t have to miss the next item on your travel itinerary. Specially formulated with the ingredients Hyssop and Alpine Glacier Water, the latter provides hydration and nutrients while facilitating the absorption of natural cleansing properties of the Hyssop that also improves complexion and balances oil levels, hence a recommendation for those with combination to oily skin. For best results, using it twice daily helps to deep cleanse and purify skin to achieve healthy and radiant skin.

Refreshing and Mattifying Toner, 200ml – RM38.90

Before moisturizing your skin, Swiss Image’s anti-shine Refreshing and Mattifying Toner cleanses excess dirt and prevents the growth of unfamiliar bacteria in a foreign place. Also formulated with natural extracts of Hyssop and Alpine Glacier Water, it is recommended for those with combination to oily skin types. Applying the toner twice a day using cotton pads onto cleansed face and neck area while avoiding the eyes will result in your skin feeling fresh all day long. The matted look adds a velvety finish to your skin for all your photogenic travel photos. Additionally, it tightens pores and reduces signs of tired-looking skin.

Absolute Hydration Day Cream, 50ml – RM48.90

The final step to a principal day skincare routine, Swiss Image’s Absolute Hydration Day Cream is enriched with natural botanical extract Edelweiss and Alpine Glacier Water. Staying out all day in a different country could take a toll on the skin, but this cream provides long-lasting hydration and nourishment to keep you looking radiant on your adventures. Harsh weather is no longer a problem with its SPF filter qualities, while also protecting the skin against environmental aggression and ultimately improving skin complexion.

Malaysian travellers can now experience the benefits of using unique and premium ingredients during their travels this holiday season with these three key products from the Swiss Image Essential Care range that highlight the fundamental 3-step skincare routine for skin protection, nourishment and an extra boost of confidence.

All Swiss Image products are free from harmful chemicals such as Paraben, PEG and Phthalates, and HALAL certified.

Swiss Image products are available at selected Watsons stores, Watsons E-commerce & on Shopee Malaysia.

MIHAS 2020 Promotes Sustainability Among Halal Based Industry Players

A new revolution in Halal Industry!

d4624869-aca4-4436-a39b-2b6208153a30

World’s largest halal trade fair, the Malaysia International Halal Showcase (MIHAS) 2020, is set to host Malaysian and global Halal-based businesses at its 17th edition from 1 to 4 April 2020.

In this edition, MIHAS will be facilitating the promotion of sustainability practices among Halal-based industry players.

WhatsApp Image 2019-11-21 at 11.26.14 AM

Themed as “Expand Your Halal Horizon”, MIHAS 2020 will feature more than 1,200 booths of companies from Malaysia and from ASEAN, North East Asia, Central Asia, Middle East, Africa and Americas. In addition, the event is expecting over 35,000 visitors from 90 countries. The congregation is set to be MIHAS largest yet since its inception in 2004.

18f1c3c5-56fe-4949-9cd6-0836ca456396

Participants of MIHAS will include Halal-certified and trade-ready companies, buyers, leading brands, manufacturers, distributors, and suppliers. Organised by Malaysia External Trade Development Corporation (MATRADE),

MIHAS 2020 will showcase the strengths of various sectors in Halal namely Food & Beverages, Food Technology Manufacturing, Pharmaceutical, Cosmetics, Logistics, Tourism, Islamic Finance, Digital and Franchise.

According to MATRADE’s Chief Executive Officer Dato’ Wan Latiff Wan Musa, 2020 will be a significant year for Malaysia as it operationalises various plans to drive Malaysia’s sustainability agenda.

“Sustainability promotes responsible businesses and good practices that emphasise responsibilities towards the environment, social and governance. This is very much in line with United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals or the SDGs. Halal and sustainability when practiced together will lead to the Halalan Toyyiban lifestyle and we need to articulate this to the world through MIHAS.”

For example, Halal gives guidelines on the production, processing and handling of products that ensure the contents used do not carry any matter that is prohibited by Syariah law, impure, or detrimental to health. It also warrants the processes adopted are safe and do not bring any hazards to the environment and people. At the core of the guidelines, we can see a strong emphasis on being environmentally friendly, safeguarding the well-being of the living (humans and animals), fair trade – a value that we champion through Free Trade Agreements, and ethical and just business practices that Islamic Finance exemplifies,”

“These are what make Halal and sustainability a perfect match for businesses to strengthen their value proposition when selling to the world, while at the same time protecting the world and society. This will definitely give Malaysian exporters a long-term strategic advantage.”

Apart from the showcase of Halal products and services at the exhibition, MIHAS will also feature a highly effective business matching platform called International Sourcing Programme (INSP) that has, since 2005 attracted more than 4,300 buyers from around the world who were matched with Malaysian companies.

Other than that, MIHAS 2020 will offer quality networking and learning opportunities through spacious and improved experiential zones and industry-renowned fora as well as talks by experts from various Halal industries.

Last year’s MIHAS saw the introduction of the Modest Fashion Cluster – where a total of 48 companies and associations were highlighted.

MIHAS 2020 will further strengthen Malaysia’s position as a global halal hub and put forward the economic values of Halal for the world. The prospects for Halal-based businesses continue to be strong. Based on Thomson Reuters (State of the Global Islamic Economy Report 2019/20), the global Islamic economy in 2018 was worth USD4.74 trillion and is expected to grow to USD6.66 trillion in 2024,” Wan Latiff added.

In the same report, Malaysia once again leads the Global Islamic Economy Indicator (GIEI), reflecting a robust Islamic Economy ecosystem, with Malaysia leading the pack in pioneering the growth of the Islamic economy in various sectors. Key sectors that will drive the Islamic economy include Halal Food (to be valued at USD2 trillion by 2024), Modest Fashion (USD402 billion) , Media & Recreation (USD309 billion), Muslim-Friendly Travel (USD274 billion), Halal Pharmaceuticals (USD134 billion), Halal Cosmetics (USD95 billion) and Islamic Finance (USD3.5 trillion).

MIHAS 2020 will be held at the Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre (MITEC) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and supported by CIMB Islamic, GISB Holdings, Ramly Food Processing Sdn Bhd of better known as Ramly Burger and Big Onion Food Caterer.

Interested companies keen to take part in MIHAS 2020 can register at www.mihas.com.my.
