Happy 10th, Kojiesan!

Kikay Corner recently celebrated with Kojiesan their 10th year in the skin lightening industry.

Kojiesan’s manufacturer, Beauty Elements Venture’s Inc. (BEVI)’s success story is a witness to its owner’s determination. They started out with a few dozen orders and to its current millions of bars sold, the soap has been a favorite among the Filipino household. It started making waves locally and like every good news, it was bound to break out. Kojiesan is now known all across the globe.

BEVI started in a humble office in a residential area of Makati. Now, the company operates from an entire building. It also owns 6 hectares of manufacturing facilities in San Pablo, Laguna, providing employment to more than 500 employees.

BEVI is the first to introduce kojic acid soap in the Philippine market, initially as a supplier to dermatologists, who prescribed it to patients with skin pigmentation and darkening problems. Realizing its potential, BEVI launched the original kojic acid soap formulated the traditional Japanese way and made it even better by adding high-grade virgin coconut oil into the mix.

I love success stories like this, they create a foreground for people like us to never stop striving to reach for our dreams. My first encounter with Kojiesan was when I learned from our helper some 6 years back that it was the brand of soap that she used. I had to ask because the transition from dull skin to a bright and flawless one was amazing. Yes, it was inevitable for me to stock up on it myself. 🙂

#HealWithVaseline this Summer: Vaseline Instant Fair Lotion and Deep Restore Lotion

The summer heat has gone beyond unbearable these past days. Unbearable enough that I was under the weather the week after my son was. Tandem it with one of summer’s most common diseases, sore eyes, and I just about welcomed myself into misery land. But as I am feeling better today, I’m more than ever convinced that we should be more vigilant in making sure our bodies are well hydrated, especially this summer.

Heal with Vaseline

That said, did you know that this wild summer heat has the makings of dehydrating your skin? I know this all too well since my cracked lips are such give away.  As our skin is exposed to factors that can damage and dry it out. From hot showers, air-conditioned rooms, to the heat and pollution during one’s daily commute, skin is stripped off of its natural hydration and moisture. Check out the difference between leaves with and and without Vaseline. That’s pretty much the case for my lip when I fail to dab Vaseline Petroleum Jelly on it – one touch and it’s likely to crack.
