The Launch of BLACKMORES Natural Vitamin E Cream Range

Leading natural health supplement brand BLACKMORES recognises the importance of healthy skin and has therefore introduced a range of natural skincare products catering to different skin needs. BLACKMORES Natural Vitamin E Cream range is a natural skincare product which helps to moisturise and protect dry skin, nourish and soothe skin, and prevent moisture loss. It contains a source of natural vitamin E together with lanolin, avocado oil, apricot kernel oil and vitamin A. It has no artificial colours or fragrances.
According to Jeannie Kwa, Naturopath from BLACKMORES, “Vitamin E is fat-soluble antioxidant naturally present in healthy skin. Applying vitamin E to the skin’s surface provides additional protection as it functions as a skin conditioner and to protect skin cells from environmental damage.”

“Lanolin has a very similar function to our skin’s natural sebum. Both lanolin and sebum form a protective waterproof barrier on the skin and act to protect the skin and keep it from becoming dry, brittle and cracked by dehydration”, Kwa adds.
BLACKMORES Natural Vitamin E cream has been part of the BLACKMORES range for almost 40 years, since it was launched in 1978. Explained Kwa, “BLACKMORES started formulating skin care products in the 1970s including vitamin E cream because we believe in a holistic approach to health and wellbeing. We understand it’s just as important for people to look after their skin health so they are supporting their health from outside in.”

Industry sources say the move is likely to be a good one for William Grant & Sons that could lead to more competitive pricing for its products in the Malaysia market, especially for the world’s most awarded single malt, Glenfiddich.
Commenting on the Trade Party, Satya Sharma, General Manager - Singapore, Malaysia and Philippines said, “We are delighted to host our trade partners and appointed Importers as we build such an important and strategic market for our portfolio of premium brands which include Glenfiddich, The Balvenie, Monkey Shoulder, Grants and Hendrick’s”.

A JOURNEY OF VIETNAMESE DISCOVERY

The country’s leading cinema exhibitor, Golden Screen Cinemas (GSC) launched the inaugural Vietnamese Film Festival (VFF) at GSC Pavilion KL. The week-long film festival will showcase five highly-acclaimed Vietnamese movies in five selected GSC locations in Peninsular Malaysia from 23 to 29 August 2018, in conjunction with the upcoming Vietnamese Independence Day on 2 September.
The launch event at GSC Pavilion KL was graced by Ms. Koh Mei Lee, Chief Executive Officer of Golden Screen Cinemas; Mr. Nguyen Anh Duc, Counsellor of the Republic of Vietnam; Ms. Dinh Thi Thanh Huong, Chief Executive Officer of Galaxy Media & Entertainment. Also present at the event were Mr. Irving Chee, General Manager; Mr. Heng Beng Fatt, Deputy General Manager; and Mr. Tung Yow Kong, General Manager of GSC Movies.
While Film Festivals at GSC are annually organised and championed by the foreign embassies in Malaysia as part of an effort to promote their respective countries and culture through film, VFF 2018 is a unique initiative, as it is wholly-organized by the GSC Group of Companies. The five films that are featured in the festival have been specially handpicked by GSC Movies, the GSC Group’s distribution arm, with the support of Galaxy Media & Entertainment in Vietnam and include many movies that have been produced by the latter.

“We see Film Festivals as an enabler in stimulating greater awareness of the arts and in bridging cultures through foreign language films. Owing to our strong partnership with Galaxy Media & Entertainment, we decided to collaborate with GSC Movies as a Group to host the VFF to further diversify the content that are available to Malaysian movie-goers. These five films are some of the most commercially-successful titles in Vietnam, and we believe they will appeal to our audiences as well, who will be able to equally relate to the values, lessons, and experiences of the characters within these stories,” said Ms. Koh Mei Lee.

Starbucks Malaysia Launches Jumbo Cookies in Conjunction with Its World’s First Signing Store 2nd Anniversary

In conjunction with the world’s first Starbucks Signing Store 2nd Anniversary celebration, Starbucks Malaysia announced the launch of the Starbucks Jumbo Chocolate Chip Cookies across all its stores throughout Malaysia. For every purchase of the cookies at Starbucks, RM1 will be channeled to the Silent Teddies Bakery, a social enterprise started by the Community Service Centre for the deaf (CSCD) to support their programs and its schools for the Deaf children.
“It is heart-warming to see how Malaysians are coming together to support the under-represented groups in Malaysia. I am especially inspired by how the Starbucks Signing Store has provided a platform for the Deaf community to work and also to continue developing soft skills that would allow them to live a fulfilling life. With the help of corporations like Starbucks, I believe there is potential for more workplaces in Malaysia to become more inclusive, and more diverse.” said Yang Berhormat Puan Hannah Yeoh, Deputy Minister of Women, Family and Community Development when she officiated the Starbucks Signing Store’s 2nd anniversary celebration.

As part of the continuous learning and development initiatives at Starbucks, the Starbucks Signing Store in Malaysia now houses a total of nine Deaf baristas who are 100% certified coffee masters. The Deaf Coffee Masters in Malaysia will be distinguishable by black aprons that feature a special embroidery with ‘Starbucks’ in Malaysian Sign Language. In addition, these Deaf baristas are also qualified to conduct coffee chat sessions with the public using sign language much like the baristas at the Starbucks Reserve™ stores in Malaysia.

Chief Executive Officer of Berjaya Food Berhad and Managing Director of Starbucks Malaysia and Brunei, Mr. Sydney Quays said, “A big part of what we do at Starbucks is to create a culture of diversity and inclusion. Through this partnership with Silent Teddies Bakery, we hope to further improve the lives of the Deaf community than just providing them with job opportunities. Being the first country to introduce the Starbucks Signing Store concept into the world was a stepping stone for us. Its success has even inspired our North American Starbucks partners to learn and study our business model, which has now materialized into the first Starbucks in the United States which plans to open this October.”
Each Starbucks® Jumbo Cookie are unique as they are all handmade with no preservatives added. The cookies will be priced at RM 6.90, and will gradually be rolled out to all Starbucks stores nationwide, including East Malaysia, starting from 8 August 2018 onwards. Starbucks Malaysia has also launched the exclusive Signing Store 2nd Anniversary merchandise which are only available at the Starbucks Signing Store at Bangsar Village II.
