These products are lightweight and have a quick absorption rate on the skin, which means they are an excellent option for both face and body. This range offers excellent value for money products and is suitable for everyday use for the whole family.

Lanolin Oil Cream (Moisturizes and Softens the Skin)

This cream helps the skin to minimize wrinkles, nourishes, and protects the skin, this is perfect for dry and damaged skin. Lanolin is a natural emollient that has a lipid (oil) profile very similar to sebum (skin oil) and therefore contributes moisture to the stratum corneum (outer layer of the skin).

Lanolin adds to the natural protective mantel of the skin to prevent moisture loss. The Night Cream has a richer concentration of active ingredients, intended for a heavier, more prolonged absorption into the skin overnight, whilst your rest.

 Emu Oil Creams (Hydrates and Soothes the Skin) 

The active key ingredient of this cream (Emu Oil) helps skin rejuvenation, it relieves skin irritation and soothes muscle and joint pains. Our Emu Oil is purely sourced from sustainable emu farms and is pharmaceutical grade. The oil is a 100% natural derivative of our national icon and is extracted under the strictest conditions. Historically, Emu Oil has been used by the Aborigines for the treatment of burns, wounds, and bruises. With its powerful antioxidant properties, Emu Oil can also be considered for skin cell rejuvenation and anti-wrinkle defense.

Goat’s Milk and Manuka Honey Cream

Goats Milk is a natural wonder, with infusions of milk proteins, vitamins A, B12, B6E, amino acids, and natural lactic acid, which may contribute the regulating the pH of your skin and stimulate healthy skin renewal, a great option for combination and oily skin types.

Legánde, Inc. launched three new products that cater to health and wellness.

Legánde, Inc marked another milestone in their history by unveiling a brand new logo and tagline “Where infinite possibilities live” to usher a new year and decade with new products, compensation plan, and management team. Legánde, Inc is a fusion of two companies, Multipure Philippines and Pillars 5. Multipure Philippines is the authorized distributor of Multipure water systems of the United States of America while Pillars 5 is an all natural nutrition and wellness company.

The event was held at Luxent Hotel and it was graced by family, friends, brand partners, entrepreneurs, media, and supporters of Legánde, Inc. The ballroom was filled to the brim, with everyone hanging off the edge of their seats, excited to witness and have first hand dibs on the newest products and income opportunity that Legánde, Inc. has to offer.

Legánde, Inc. launched three new products that cater to health and wellness. They have the home essentials, health essentials, and beauty essentials. The home essentials include the Multipure Water Filtration Systems, the AquaDOME, AquaVERSA, and AquaMINI, that is backed by three certifications (ANSI 42 – Aesthetic effects; ANSI 53 – Health effects, and ANSI 401 – emerging compounds and incidental contaminants) from the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) which users can upgrade with a Legánde Pre-filter. Under the same category is the Multipure Aqua Shower that is marked by a Water Quality Seal. The health essentials include 100% pure essential oils, gourmet teas, and life enzyme. The beauty essentials consists of argan oil for the face, hair, and body.

Multipure is the premier manufacturer of high-quality drinking water systems in the United States of America and have been in business for 50 years. They are all about improving the quality of life. Multipure is the original developer of solid carbon block technology.

The gourmet teas being offered by Legánde is not just any tea. These teas are what purists call as the real thing. Legánde Inc. offers green tea, black tea, white tea, oolong tea, and a fusion of green tea and jasmine flowers tea. These are derived from the Camellia sinensis plant which is a shrub native to China and India. This contains unique antioxidants called polyphenols.

Essential oils are another addition to Legánde’s growing roster of products. This is an absolutely perfect addition because Legánde wants to provide its customers with a more positive lifestyle. Legánde’s essential oils come in three types: Mood Lifter, Stress and Pain Buster, and last but not least the Energy Booster.

Legánde’s essential oils can be used both topically and aromatically. It also comes in a sampler kit which comes with three 5ml bottles while the regular essential oils come in 15ml bottles.

The Argan Oil is one of its most coveted beauty products so it makes sense that Legánde is offering this in 3 forms: Hair, Body, and Face. With it’s high Vitamin E and fatty acid content, argan oil is the ideal product to give skin a natural boost. It is easily absorbed because it is non-greasy and non-irritating, making it a natural moisturizer.

Lastly, they are also offering Life Enzyme which works better than most vitamins, herbal remedies, and supplements. Enzymes speed up blood circulation, digestion, detoxification, and healing which are all necessary for the body.

This slows down ageing and aids in the relief of digestive disorders and boosts energy.

Legánde’s launch was led by Ramon F. Garcia, President and CEO of Legánde Inc. as well as Ramon Paolo Garcia Jr., Chief Operating Officer. With an impressive lineup of new products from Legánde, it is safe to say that Legánde is kicking off the year 2020 with a bang!

Ramon Garcia Sr. ended the night with this quote: “ We grow because we invest. We invest in our members and staff development. We invest in new technology. We invest in new products.

We invest in infrastructure to better our service. Now the result of caring, sharing, and investing

is that we grow, we grow together, we grow our business together, and we grow together to realize our members’ dream at a sustainable level.”

THE DERMCARE STORY

Ms. Zenaida E. Palisoc President and CEO of Dermcare

It all started with a young girl’s dream to grow older gracefully, with ageless beauty that glowed from within.

When asked what made her go into the beauty, health, and wellness industry, President and CEO of the Dermcare Group Ms. Zenaida E. Palisoc, or Madam Zeny as she is fondly called, laughingly recalled that she had always wanted to look beautiful and at her best. Even as a teenager, she was determined to find products and treatments that would help her with her dark, problematic skin. As the years went by, she tried almost every local and imported beauty product that promised her a fairer complexion and would help keep her skin clean, supple, and fresh. Finding most of those products unsatisfactory and lacking, she finally realized it made more sense to develop those products herself, because she knew exactly what she and most women wanted.

Pioneering Affordable Skin Care and Treatments for Filipinos

And so Madam Zeny’s love affair with beauty, health, and wellness began. In 1989 she and her husband, then Board Director of the Livelihood Foundation under the Office of the President, the late Joselito L. Palisoc, established ZET Pharmaceuticals and Dermcare Professional Skin, Hair, and Spa.

Madam Zeny and Sir Tito Palisoc opened their first Dermcare branch, a combination pharmacy and skin clinic, in a 20sqm space along Taft Avenue, where they catered to a niche market of Filipinos who were looking for top-of-the line specialty skin care preparations and treatments at affordable prices. That small clinic pioneered the whitening business in the country, and under the hands-on care and supervision of Madam Zeny, has now grown to be a trusted brand with more than 100 branches spread out across the Philippines.

Building The Business

The growth of Dermcare hasn’t been all posh and glamour. Madam Zeny dedicated years of hard work, commitment, and sacrifice to bring the brand to where it is today. After Sir Tito passed away, she invested herself even more into the business, to the extent of training under a dermatologist to learn how to give facials herself. Later on when Dermcare started offering massage services, she trained to become a licensed massage therapist through the Department of Health and London’s CIBTAC (Confederation of International Beauty Therapists and Cosmetologists). Recently, with the rapid growth and expansion of the business, she got over her initial apprehension of going back to school and secured for herself a Masters in Entrepreneurship at the Ateneo Graduate School of Business where she graduated as a gold medalist.

This discipline and dedication to the craft is instilled into each and every Dermcare employee. Before they are even fielded out to their assigned branches, they are all flown to Manila to undergo a comprehensive and rigorous one-month training sessions including Human Anatomy and Physiology. Therapists are trained directly by Dermcare’s medical director and resident dermatologist, who ensures that by the end of the session, these employees will have made a firm commitment to adhere to the quality and performance standards that the company has set for the business.

#WeDoCare

Aiming to become THE preferred brand in the beauty, health, and wellness industry, Dermcare has resolved to provide its customers with innovative products and services that are responsive to their needs and lifestyles. There is constant product research and development, upgrading, and training to ensure that all business units – including its products, services, and people – remain attuned to, if not ahead of the quickly transforming market.

Madam Zeny is quick to point out that Dermcare has persevered through two global crises, has grown exponentially, and has become a respected trust brand because the organization is made up of passionately caring professionals with years of skills and experience, who all want to make a difference in the lives of others. These people are the cornerstones of Dermcare’s success throughout the years.

30 Gorgeous Years

On its 30th year in the market, Dermcare is now celebrated as a one-stop-shop beauty, wellness, and rejuvenation center, continuously delighting its clientele with safe and effective skin, hair, and body care products and services at a superior value. The brand itself has become synonymous to the diamond peel, which they also pioneered and is still its bestselling service, along with whitening treatments, pimple control, and anti-ageing treatments.

And as it continues to innovate, transform, and lead the industry, Dermcare has expanded to offer even more specialized care for its growing clientele. Aside from its flagship brands – Dermcare Professional Skin Hair and Spa and the Dermcare Luxe Wellness and Spa – the Dermcare Group now includes Brow Hub and the Belle La Peau Waxing Salon, which were designed to deliver highly personalized services for discerning customers.

Together, Dermcare, Brow Hub, and Belle La Peau – led by Madam Zeny Palisoc and carried through by the men and women who make up the Dermcare Group – are all geared up and excited to carve out even more milestones into the beauty, health, and wellness industry.
