Defensil 70% Solution Isopropyl Alcohol continues its campaign to be Filipino families’ ally in germ protection in the new normal as they welcome newlyweds, Richard Gutierrez and Sarah Lahbati, together with their adorable kids Zion and Kai, as their brand ambassadors.


Adjusting to the New Normal with Defensil Isopropyl Alcohol

Richard and Sarah, who got married in a solemn ceremony earlier this year, celebrated their new life together in quarantine. While being stuck at home was an opportunity for them to spend more time together as a family—planting, painting and playing all sorts of games, they also needed to go through a lot of adjustments as a family. 




One adjustment that they had to do was to look for better ways to protect their family against germs, with the threat of the virus still continuing up until now. They found their newest ally in Defensil 70% Solution Isopropyl Alcohol, which promises a higher level of protection against germs and viruses. 

“We believe in innovative products. Not only does Defensil come from a company we trust, Defensil 70% Solution Isopropyl Alcohol is also recommended by experts,” said Sarah. 

“And since we use alcohol more frequently to sanitize, I also like how it not only kills germs and bacteria, but also has moisturizer to not dry our skin,” she added. 

One way to prevent the spread of germs is regular disinfection of hands and high touch surfaces using a rubbing alcohol. To provide a higher level of defense against germs in the new normal, the Philippine Society for Microbiology is recommending Defensil 70% Solution Isopropyl Alcohol.


Created by Beauty Elements Ventures Inc, Defensil 70% Solution Isopropyl Alcohol kills 99.9% of germs to give Richard and Sarah’s family the peace of mind that they are well-defended. It starts to kill germs on contact and upon constant use, provides up to 12-hour protection.





New Normal Holidays

Celebrating the holidays is surely going to be different for the Gutierrez family this year. For Richard and Sarah, social distancing is something that they’re keeping in mind as they celebrate the holiday season, along with making sure that everyone sanitizes and disinfects using Defensil.

The family wishes to go on a local holiday trip with family bringing their new ally, Defensil. With this, Sarah shares three simple tips to fellow parents on how to keep their family safe from germs during the holiday season. 

First, social distancing is a must. Second, always wear a mask. It is important for parents to teach their kids the importance of wearing masks, which help to prevent the transmission of the virus. And, lastly, always disinfect with an alcohol that makes sure you and the family are well-defended— like Defensil Isopropyl Alcohol.

The year 2020 has been tough for Filipinos as countless calamities ravaged our communities and a current pandemic that has been affecting our way of life. Just recently, two devastating back-to-back Typhoons hit the country which affected hundreds of thousands of our kababayans in Luzon. On November 1, Super Typhoon Rolly, considered the strongest typhoon ever recorded in recent history struck the southern region of the Philippines, and an estimated two million Filipinos have been affected, many of whom lost their homes and livelihood. Less than two weeks after, Typhoon Ulysses resulted in extreme flooding in provinces, including Metro Manila and some parts of Central and Nothern Luzon, that previously devastated by Typhoon Rolly.

Haier Philippines on helping affected Filipino families

In the past months, we have witnessed how Filipinos worked together to provide support and aid to affected communities and families. One of the brands that have been constantly extending emergency relief efforts is Haier Philippines, a global home appliance brand. Haier has been responsive to the existing socio-economic issues extending hands to our Filipinos in times of crisis. Last January, Haier responded to the Mount Taal victims by visiting the area and providing clothes and food supplies for more than 200 families. Last May, the brand donated two Haier refrigerators to frontline workers who have been working tirelessly to fight the coronavirus pandemic.

Halloween is a festive occasion where kids have a license to dress like creatures from scary dreams. The nightmare for parents, however, comes from the toll the holiday takes on children’s teeth. While many youngsters are all smiles thanks to the bags of free candy they get from trick-or-treating or Halloween parties, those sweets can turn their pearly whites into an awful fright. That’s why it’s important for parents and caregivers to have a plan in place to avoid a dental disaster.

Schedule a Dental Exam

Keeping up with regular dentist appointments is a crucial step in maintaining a child’s oral health. It takes on added significance, however, around events like Halloween and Christmas when children may be consuming more candy and cookies than normal. Call your family dentist in Newport News or in your area to schedule an exam immediately following these super sweet times of the year.

Avoid Sticky Treats

Chocolate bars won’t help a child’s complexion or weight, but there are far worse sweets when it comes to oral health. Gummy and sticky treats like caramel, dried fruit and taffy are the biggest threats. Chewing these foods can pull out fillings, and they also coat the teeth with a thin film that increases the risk of tooth decay. Sour gummies may be the worst of all, as they also contain various acids that further harm teeth.

Eat More Fruit

If your child is craving sweets, treat him or her to the natural sweetness of fresh fruit. Crisp fruits, such as apples, offer numerous health benefits, including freshening breath, cleaning plaque from teeth and protecting gums from infection and damage. Foods that are high in fiber also increase saliva production, which offers vital protection against the acids that wear down tooth enamel.


Don’t let dental problems ruin your Halloween. Follow these tips to ensure the only fright you experience is from your kids’ costumes.

Who doesn't love a piece of candy every once in a while? Whether you're into chocolate bars, caramel squares, taffy twists, or fruity chews, there's a seemingly endless variety of options to satisfy your sweet tooth. What's interesting about all these different choices is they come from all over the world. Yep! Some of your favorite brands and treats have been staple sweets in Europe and other parts of the world far longer than here in the U.S. Let's take a look at some popular brands and figure out their history.

Fruity Candies


Perhaps one of the most recognizable of
 imported candy brands is Haribo gummy bears. Haribo is a German company that began in 1920. It's owner, Hans Riegel, started the business in a tiny kitchen in Bonn, Germany, which contributed to the company's name (the first two letters of his first name, last name, and the place he started). Today, the confectionary enterprise has spread into 100 countries across the globe and brings its delicious trademark gummy bears and other treats to people worldwide.



Chocolate


Most people know those delicious little Cadbury eggs started in England, but there's a much richer history to them than just that. In 1824, the founder John Cadbury opened his shop that sold tea, coffee, and "drinking chocolate," which he prepared himself by crushing cocoa with a mortar and pestle. The interesting bit is that he sold these wares in keeping with is Quaker beliefs, a religion that thought these drinking alternatives would keep men away from alcohol. The brand exploded from there. It developed new products, found ways to thrive and aid soldiers during the war, and has become the largest worldwide candy brand.

So next time you reach for a chocolate egg or a bag of gummy bears, consider where the candy came from and enjoy the sweetness of its rich history.

 

There are a number of reasons why people love eggs – it’s easy to cook, versatile, and one of the cheapest and convenient protein sources. Filipinos have especially stocked up on this pantry staple amid the height of lockdowns due to COVID-19 pandemic. 




Based on the consumption survey conducted in 2015 by the Food and Nutrition Research Institute of the Department of Science and Technology (FNRI-DOST), chicken eggs ranked seventh on the “Top 30 Commonly Consumed Food Items” in the Philippines, proving that it is an indispensable ingredient in a household. While eggs are often seen as an accompaniment to our breakfast silog meals, it has many other uses from making quick meals, a thickener and binding agent, to adding flavor. 


Eggs are packed with nutrients that children need for healthy growth and development. It contains vitamins and minerals and all nine essential amino acids that the human body cannot produce on its own, making it an ingredient that can be easily added to other food to enhance its nutritional value. It’s no wonder that it is a favorite of Filipinos as it’s not only nutritious but an inexpensive source of nutrients and easy to prepare especially for busy parents.


But just because eggs are an obvious choice in making healthy and delicious egg-cellent meals, it doesn’t mean that you should be limited with the usual boiled, fried, or poached. Skip the same-old ways of cooking eggs and try introducing more variety into your child’s diet. Ajinomoto Philippines Corporation has prepared a “7-Day Egg Challenge” for you that will help you learn new ways to cook eggs for your kids. You’d be surprise that even picky eaters would love the way we added other ingredients like veggies to enrich the color, texture and nutrients of the dishes. Best of all, all are under a hundred pesos for a family-size meal!

While it may seem that everyone understands the importance of keeping their teeth healthy, they may not truly understand how to keep their teeth and gums healthy. Flossing and brushing your teeth regularly go a long way to keeping them healthy, but you should not stop there. It is important to have regular dental check-ups. You should consider scheduling an appointment with a local dentist Carrollton Texas after you read all the reasons why checkups are necessary. 

The recommendation is that you have two dental checkups every year, so one every six months. When you visit the dentist for regular check-ups, it consists of a check-up and a cleaning. 

During the check-up portion of your visit, you will be checked for overall health and any areas that appear problematic. They are not just checking your teeth and gums, they are examining you for signs of mouth, neck, or head cancer. They will feel for any lumps, as well as check for white or red patches in your mouth. They are also looking for swelling or redness. During the exam, the dental professional checks for cavities, plaque, and tartar.

Plaque is a layer of bacteria that sticks to your teeth and can harden to become tartar. If tartar is not removed from your teeth, it can be a cause of oral disease. The dentist uses a special tool to measure the depth of the spaces between the gums and teeth. When your gums are healthy, the spaces are shallow. The spaces become deeper when you have gum disease. 

During the cleaning part of your check-up, the hygienist removes plaque and tartar that has built up on your teeth. This is called scaling and requires special tools. Brushing alone will not remove plaque and tartar. Once they are scaled, the hygienist cleans and polishes them. They use a gritty type of paste for this. It is intended to remove any stains that you have on your teeth. Once this is done, your teeth are flossed to make sure the space between your teeth is also clean. 

During your regular checkups, your dentist is able to catch problems in the early stages. They can see tooth decay in its early stages and help to treat it and prevent it. This is the time to ask your dentist about any problems you are having. As you build a relationship with your dentist, you are more comfortable talking about any problems you may have with your mouth.
