While buying beauty products is common among Filipinos regardless of age or sex, there was a time when a large part of the market was unaware that protecting the skin against sun damage is equally, if not more, important in nurturing healthy skin and achieving a youthful glow.
Now that more Filipinos appreciate that sun care is non-negotiable and has to be a regular part of skincare routines all year-round, the challenge for developers and manufacturers is to make good sunscreen accessible and affordable to everyone.
To do its part, Hello Glow — a local skincare brand born in 2020 — launched its latest sun care innovation, the Hello Glow Sun Care Stick SPF 60+ PA++.
Referred to as the #SPFSuperstar, it has the highest SPF rating among stick format sunscreens in the local market. And just as sun care and skin care now go hand-in-hand, it is boosted with skin-nurturing ingredients that help improve fine lines and wrinkles, brighten skin, boost skin moisture and restore the skin barrier.
“Everybody should know that the best sunscreen is something you could enjoy using daily. We wanted sunscreen to be fun and something we can be consistent with. So the more often you use it throughout the day, the better,” she added.
Aside from its high sun protection factor, Hello Glow can also act as a makeup primer and moisturizer.
“In terms of wearing it under makeup, it has a mild dehydrating formula that gives you that bouncy feeling so that actually works as a primer before you put on the makeup. It can also help the makeup stick to the skin,” Sy pointed out.
“On the other hand, when a person uses it over makeup, it does not totally transfer but works just enough that it doesn’t ruin the makeup and it provides additional protection,” she continued.
Since 2020, Hello Glow has released multiple skin care products that are vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, and SLS-free which are all developed to suit all skin types.
Their best-in-class range of superior sun care products include their O.G. 3-in-1 Lightweight Sun Care Gel which has a watery formula, Anti-Pollution Tinted Sunscreen which utilizes tone-adapt technology, Ultralight ++ Sunscreen which has a serum-gel consistency and the Sun Care Lip Balm with SPF 20.
All of these can be used together with the Hello Glow Sun Care Stick SPF 60+ PA++ for the ultimate sun protection.
“We have always been a strong advocate of the importance of transparency, proper skincare education and reading product labels as we champion our tagline #BecauseYourSkinMatters,” Sy noted.
“Hello Glow is also the first local brand to proudly publish our SPF certifications which we are very proud of for all our sun care products. If we claim it, we can vouch for it,” she ended.
