Defensil Isopropyl Alcohol launches official Shopee and Lazada stores so you can Be Safe Now

Defensil Isopropyl Alcohol brings safety right to your doorstep as they launch their new Shopee and Lazada flagship stores.
More than a year in quarantine has made Filipinos anxious to go out, meet up with family and friends, and once again do their favorite recreational activities and hobbies.

As the country continues to roll out its vaccination program, experts continue to remind us of the importance of following health protocols to keep yourself and the people around you safe.

From regular washing of hands, maintaining physical distancing to always disinfecting with at least 70% alcohol solution, proper sanitation remains key to helping us prevent the spread of the virus – and that includes choosing the right rubbing alcohol to keep your hands free from germs, viruses, and bacteria.

Defensil Isopropyl Alcohol is recommended by the Philippine Society for Microbiology (PSM) as it kills 99.9% of germs and starts to kill them on contact, so you can be protected while doing your regular activities even amid the pandemic. It also provides you and your loved ones up to 12 hours of protection with constant use. Defensil 70% Isopropyl Alcohol is now available in its online stores in 60 mL, 250 mL, 350mL, 500 mL, 1L, and 3.7 L or 1 GaL bottles.

Defensil Isopropyl Alcohol brand ambassadors, Richard Gutierrez and Sarah Lahbati, who are parents to two boys, Zion and Kai, shared how getting Defensil Isopropyl Alcohol online has been a big help to them.
“Right now, we do most of our shopping online for food, clothes, toys, and a lot more as we really think it’s safer and minimizes risks, not just for us but for our kids as well. That’s why we got excited when we heard that Defensil has launched an online store. It has been such a big help as it allows us to safely and conveniently purchase isopropyl alcohol anytime, especially since we use it a lot even when we’re just at home,” shared Sarah.
Sarah also loves how the alcohol is hypo-allergenic and has moisturizing properties to keep her and her family’s hands from getting dry.

Be Safe Now and visit Defensil’s Shopee and Lazada flagship stores for all your isopropyl alcohol needs. For more information on how to stay protected, you may visit the Defensil Isopropyl Alcohol’s Facebook page at facebook.com/defensil.philippines.

*Defensil 70% Isopropyl Alcohol was tested against Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella typhimurium, Escherichia coli or E. coli and Candida albicans

ComCo Southeast Asia kicks off 5th anniversary celebration with brand evolution, new metals and pitch wins

ComCo Southeast Asia is in “Blazing Sapphire” as it enters its 5th year with renewed energy through a brand refresh, awards from esteemed local and regional communications and marketing organizations, and major account wins.

Among the many milestones it is celebrating is a refreshed brand story chronicling the company’s journey from a kick-start-up to a premier multi-awarded regional boutique communications agency serving enterprises and organizations in the Philippines and across the Southeast Asian region, continued recognition for its communications and marketing campaigns, and new client partners.

Trailblazing. Transformative. Limitless.
United as a coalition of brand architects, inspired storytellers and communication trailblazers, ComCo SEA is kicking off its anniversary celebration with the Agency’s brand evolution – the transformation of its symbol and promise, and the retelling of its brand identity and story. ComCo Southeast Asia unveils its icon – a mothership housing the company’s great works and individuals with immense talent, meaning, passion and dreams, and taking off to conquer new horizons. The mothership is a vessel, a second home, a safe zone, a creativity playground, and a jumping board that empowers the ComCo Squadron to do more groundbreaking projects and make a difference along the way.

ComCo’s logo transforms from speech bubble into a digital screen, which beams the image of the mothership, and reflects the more modern, more complete and more integrated way of communicating in a world that has evolved. It shows the advancement, digital and multi-touchpoint integration, and completeness of the emerging global disciplines the Agency champions – New PR and Smart Social. It represents the company’s outlook of being a global independent communications agency working with a network of independents in Southeast Asia and across the regional centers of the world, in providing integrated communications solutions and services to brands, companies and organizations of all shapes and sizes.

Whether online or on-site, ComCo SEA is ready to soar higher with its unique brand of #MeaningfulStorytelling, which is also the Agency’s new mantra, to ignite brand love, social change, talent growth and regional alliance.

The company’s focus remains to Ignite Brand Love, Ignite Social Change, Ignite Talent and Ignite Regional Collaboration, while ComCo’s corporate culture is now reinforced through the four Camp ComCo mentorship houses lifted from the team’s spirit animals which are valuable but endangered species inhabiting Southeast Asia and the Pacific, showing the Agency’s love for the environment. ComCo Southeast Asia upholds Unity Drawn by Individual Stories and Team Journey as represented by Hawksbill, Rebellion Against the Status Quo and Monotony to Pursue Excellence as symbolized by Bearcat, Commitment to Advocacies that Matter and taken to Heart as signified by Flying Fox, and Equal Access and Opportunity for All as reflected by Whaleshark.

Wins in Awards and Accounts
In its 5 years, ComCo Southeast Asia has reaped over 76 awards and is celebrating more wins in 2021 from both local and international award-giving bodies such as IABC Quill Awards, MarCom Awards in USA, Mumbrella Awards, Marketing Event Awards in Singapore, Campaign Asia Pacific’s PR Awards Asia in Hong Kong, Spikes Asia, Anvil Awards, Asia Pacific Stevie Awards, Kidlat and ARAW Advertising Values Awards. The company recently received 13 metals from the prestigious IABC Quill Awards along with brand partners Eastern Communications, Jobstreet, World Vision and WWF-Philippines, including the recognition of Agency of the Year 2nd Runner-up. Recently, ComCo Southeast Asia also emerged as regional finalist in the Marketing PR Awards in Singapore for Best Use of Micro / Niche Influencers for its Write to Ignite Blogging Project.

More than the awards, ComCo SEA also continued to strengthen its client portfolio, winning major accounts in recent agency pitches such as Xiaomi, Unilab Foundation, Defensil isopropyl alcohol, Sunlife ASC, and Lamoiyan Corporation’s Gumtect toothpaste.

Blazing Sapphire 5-Part Celebration
To mark its 5th year in the business, ComCo SEA is inviting its friends and stakeholders to join its year-long 5-part celebration dubbed as “Blazing Sapphire”. First in the 5-part series is the kick-off which included the virtual townhall and digital unveiling of ComCo SEA’s brand evolution, while the summer would mark the inauguration of the Camp ComCo Alumni Society “Unity Games”, where the graduates of the company’s mentorship program from House Bearcat, Flying Fox, Hawksbill and Whaleshark will get reunited, which also serves as the celebration of the company’s strong alumni culture. Meanwhile, bloggers, micro-influencers and content creators can sharpen their storytelling skills anew as ComCo SEA opens season 2 of the award-winning and much talked about “Write to Ignite Blogging Project”.

In “5 Gifts to the Community” of Citizen ComCo, the Agency’s advocacy program, ComCo SEA aims to give back and pay forward to different sectors – children, youth and education; heritage, culture and tourism; wildlife, biodiversity and environmental conservation; micro, small and social enterprises; and Southeast Asian integration. Afterwards, stakeholders and partners can look forward to the culmination of the celebration through the “Blazing Sapphire” anniversary main event.

ComCo Southeast Asia’s Regional Integration and Chief Executive Director and Co-Founder Ferdinand Bondoy shared, “We did not expect to grow this fast as we are just enjoying the journey of working together again (founders are former teammates who did landmark projects together) and growing the team with a unique, non-conformist and progressive agency culture that we’ve always dreamed of.

Then we just realized that there are so many milestones to celebrate and to be thankful for already. In 5 years, we’ve already taken care of 61 brands or accounts; 76 local, regional and international awards from real, authentic and impactful campaigns in collaboration with existing and actual clients; mentored 65 apprentices from 14 cycles of the Camp ComCo Mentorship Program; and established a network of independents in Southeast Asia primarily in Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand.”

Mr. Bondoy added, “While the team, or ComCo Squadron as we fondly call it, has accomplished many things in a short period of time, we believe that there is a lot more to do. And as we kick-start our 5-part 5th anniversary celebration, we are also jumpstarting our 10-year masterplan which is set to even revolutionize the game and do more for our society, as we work on projects and initiatives with people, brands and organizations that share the same vision.”

Ginebra San Miguel gives back through ‘Bagong Tapang Jersey Promo’

In these difficult times, the power of sports to bring people together is missed more than ever.

For its latest consumer promo, Ginebra San Miguel Inc. (GSMI) is giving basketball fans a platform to come together and extend help to those who are affected by the pandemic. “Bagong Tapang sa One Ginebra Nation Jersey and Cap Collection Promo” lets basketball fans collect Gin Kings merchandise and give back at the same time.

The jersey and cap collection promo had a virtual media launch recently that was streamed live via Ginebra San Miguel’s Facebook page. The promo is in line with Ginebra San Miguel’s latest campaign “Bagong Tapang” which highlights the new courage and strength that Filipinos possess to overcome the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The jerseys that were unveiled during the event featured Scottie Thompson (6), Stanley Pringle (11), Japeth Aguilar (25), La Tenorio (5), and Mark Caguioa (47). Starting on May 1 to June 30, 2021, fans can get their hands on the limited-edition merchandise for only P100 for the One Ginebra Nation jersey or P150 for the One Ginebra Nation cap for every six (6) seals or caps of any combination of Ginebra San Miguel, GSM Blue, GSM Blue Flavors, Ginebra San Miguel Premium Gin and Primera Light Brandy.

During the launch, Barangay Ginebra San Miguel fans got to see their favorite players for the first time after winning the 2020 Philippine Cup championship at the historic PBA bubble in December last year. With the restrictions in social gatherings, the traditional championship victory party and fans day had to be set aside.

“Ang Ginebra fans ibang level talaga. May PBA man o wala, nararamdaman namin na nandyan sila at sumusuporta sa amin. At first, we thought we are not going to survive playing without the fans because as a never-say-die team, doon kami humuhugot ng lakas. Sila ‘yung 6th man namin sa game. Napag-usapan ng team na iisipin namin ‘yung ginagawa namin ay para sa fans at para magbigay inspirasyon lalo na sa panahon ngayon,” relates LA Tenorio of the Gin Kings’ PBA bubble experience.

PAYING IT FORWARD
The jersey collection promo had been one of Ginebra San Miguel’s most patronized consumer promotions. For this year, GSMI tapped non-profit organization Gawad Kalinga (GK) as its partner for this project’s noble undertaking.

“To underscore the need for unity during these times, we partnered with Gawad Kalinga and through the promo, we aim to support GK’s Barangay Walang Iwanan program that helps Filipinos who are severely affected by the pandemic. We hope to encourage Gin Kings fans and our consumers to ‘put on’ a Bagong Tapang kind of courage and to wear this kind of Bagong Tapang for others to see and emulate,” says GSMI General manager Noli Macalalag.

For every jersey or cap that they redeem, basketball fans and consumers will be able to donate to GK’s Barangay Walang Iwanan program that supports the farmers in Sariaya, Quezon, and the fishermen in Barangay Bagumbayan, Pililla, Rizal.

“Bagong Tapang sa One Ginebra Nation Jersey and Cap Collection” merchandises are available for redemption at selected Puregold and other redemption outlets nationwide. To confirm the merchandise’s authenticity, an authentication patch can be found on the lower left part of the jersey, while an authentication sticker is attached to the cap.
