AEON Big Customers Generously Support Campaign, Delighted By Revolutionary Detergent Technology

TOP, the No.1 detergent brand in Malaysia 1 introduced its revolutionary Micro Clean Tech range, to the delight of AEON Big customers who generously supported the brand, and its ‘Cerahi Kehidupan Bersama TOP & AEON Big’ Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) campaign.

The campaign successfully raised sufficient funds to clothe 400 underprivileged children from 16 charity homes nationwide, with new school uniforms. TOP collaborated with AEON Big to carry out the charity fund raising campaign from November 14 to December 14, which saw 30 cents from the sales of selected TOP products from all AEON Big outlets nationwide channeled towards providing the back-to- school necessities for children aged between 7 to 17 years from these charity homes.

The brand went all out to raise awareness and participation in the charity fundraising campaign with roadshows at all AEON Big outlets nationwide. Southern Lion Sdn Bhd Senior Marketing Manager, Ms Carmen Foo and Corporate Values & Communication Director, AEON Big, Tuan Haji Rashid Adam, were on hand to present the school kits to children from Trinity Home and Rumah Nur Qaseh at the close of the campaign that was held at AEON Big’s headquarters at Subang Jaya, here today.

Uniforms for children from beneficiary homes across the nation will be ready for collection before school reopens, giving the children the peace of mind that they will be dressed for success in the 
new school year. The children who attended the presentation looked smartly dressed in their new uniforms, and were full of smiles.

The ‘Cerahi Kehidupan Bersama TOP’ charity fund raising campaign was developed to assist underprivileged children in having clean new school uniforms at the start of each school year for the emotional and psychological boost that it could give them. Each year, TOP collaborates with strong retail partners, such as AEON Big to encourage more consumers to lend a helping hand.

TOP, developed by LION Corporation Japan is known for its hygienically clean living concept that uses technological innovations for cleaner laundry, increased comfort and a better sense of well-being. TOP, famed for first in Malaysia innovations such as anti-malodour and anti-mite dust functionalities has revolutionized the Malaysian detergent industry with the introduction of its Micro-Clean Tech™ detergent, as AEON Big customers discovered.

The new TOP Micro-Clean Tech features the Anti-Sebum innovation that penetrates deeply into the fibre cores to lift out trapped sebum and sweat stains effectively. The TOP Micro-Clean Tech tagline of ‘It’s not clean until it’s micro clean’ reflects the detergent technology breakthrough that powers the series. TOP Micro-Clean Tech thoroughly cleans both visible and invisible stains such as sweat and sebum (body oils that are naturally released through our pores) that get trapped deep within fabric fibres. Sweat and sebum are among the main causes of odour and staining on clothes especially at areas such as armholes, sleeves and collars, leaving white clothing looking yellowed and dingy, and coloured clothing looking dull. Southern Lion Sdn Bhd Senior Marketing Manager, Ms Carmen Foo thanked AEON Big and its customers for their generous support of a program that has brought much hope and joy to 800 underprivileged children across the nation since its inception last year.

“We are grateful for the support of AEON Big and their customers, who have given generously to support a cause that is close to our hearts, and that means a lot to children who have much less  than what we take for granted. Their kind support has given hope and joy to children who can look forward to starting the school year with new uniforms, just like their other schoolmates.” 

“TOP is the undisputed technological innovator in the detergent space in Malaysia, and the proven market leader, and we are delighted to be able to share our revolutionary Micro Clean Tech™ detergent with AEON Big and its customers, in return for their strong support. Feedback from customers who have supported the Cerahi Kehidupan campaign, and who have tried the new formulation has been overwhelmingly positive!” said Ms Foo.

Consumers can reap the benefits of the latest TOP Micro-Clean Tech in their laundry, which is available in TOP Powder of Super White, Super Hygenic, Blooming Freshness and Super Colour. For TOP Liquid range consumers, they can opt for its extensive range of Stain Buster, Brilliant Clean, Blooming Pleasures (the latest addition to the family), Odour Buster and Colour Protect.

MR DENGUE, THE UNWANTED GUEST, AIMS TO MEET AS MANY MALAYSIAN AS POSSIBLE
PSA roadshow by The Malaysian Society of Infectious Diseases and Chemotherapy (MSIDC) supported by Sanofi Pasteur cuts through the ‘white noise’ of dengue reporting to engage the public on good dengue prevention habits 
While DENGUE awareness is high, poor attitudes remain. The public run the risk of becoming immune to the impact of dengue infection on their lives, families and communities by treating them as ‘white noise.’ As recently as last month, public sentiment remains indifferent to dengue, a painful and debilitating disease that can affect quality of lives up to six weeks post recovery. “I have heard stories about dengue but we never really did anything about it at home because we did not think it would affect us,”2 is one current example of public response to dengue.

Enter MR.DENGUE, The Unwanted Guest, a public service awareness roadshow by The Malaysian Society of Infectious Diseases and Chemotherapy (MSIDC) supported by Sanofi Pasteur. The campaign aims to cut through this ‘white noise’ of indifference through the use of satirical humour to catch the attention of the public on social media. Once he has your attention, he provides information about dengue fever, empowering the public with tools to protect themselves from the disease.

MR.DENGUE makes the invisible, visible. He represents the hidden dengue threat that is around all the time. It makes for playful education, and a more evocative portraiture of the disease which is a fresh way to communicate dengue prevention with the public,” said Baptiste De Clarens, Managing Director for SANOFI PASTEUR MALAYSIA, Singapore and Brunei. 

“Since the introduction of Mr. Dengue in February, he has been busy showing what he’s all about, what he will do to you.  He has also been sharing his "exploits" by hijacking twitter conversations and spreading his message of ‘mozzie domination’ on Facebook. Between April to July this year, the campaign garnered more than 2.7m impressions online, supported by initiatives with key media partners. And with the concourse roadshow here at Sunway Pyramid this weekend, we hope to reach out to many more Malaysians. Additionally, Malaysians can ‘meet’ Mr. Dengue by liking his Facebook page - www.facebook.com/mymrdengue. Spread the news about Mr. Dengue on your social media and he might just pay you a visit,” he added.

According to MSIDC (Malaysian Society of Infectious Diseases and Chemotherapy), Malaysians are still not doing enough on the dengue prevention front. “We know this from recent reports on public sentiment. Malaysians need to remember that dengue affects every one of us regardless of age, sex, health or economic status. Don’t wait until it happens to you or a family member before you take preventive action. Every 3 minutes, 1 person in Malaysia is infected3.  So please do not think you will not get dengue at some point in your life,” said Prof. Dr Zamberi Sekawi.

Everyone has a role to play in preventing dengue and protecting their families against the burden of the disease. Amongst the top tips shared by MSIDC and host and spokesperson for the Mr. Dengue campaign, Jason Leong during the media launch today were:

·         Practice vector control
o   Frequent clearing of stagnant water
o   Killing mosquitoes using insecticides
o   Use of tight-fitting lids or mesh on water storage containers
o   Solid waste management
·         Take steps to reduce risk of being bitten by an infected mosquito
o   Try to wear clothing that reduces skin exposure during daylight hours
o   Use repellents on exposed skin or clothing
o   Install mosquito nettings on windows
o  Insecticide aerosols, mosquito coils or other insecticide vaporisers and air conditioning can be used inside.

Also present at the media launch were representatives from the Ministry of Health and schoolchildren participating in the Dengue Patrol 2016 program. The schoolchildren took part in a ‘Battle’ quiz with host Jason Leong to ‘defeat’ Mr. Dengue, to the delight of the invited guests.

The Meet Mr. Dengue, The Unwanted Guest roadshow will be held at the Blue Concourse at Sunway Pyramid Mall from 12pm Friday 14th October to Sunday 16th October. The highlight of the roadshow is a Pac-Man-styled maze specially designed to be a training course for participants to equip themselves with tools to combat dengue. They will need to collect these tools and avoid being caught by Mr. Dengue’s ‘mosquitoes’ who will act as ‘ghosts’ in the Pac-Man-styled game. Learn fast, complete the course without ‘meeting’ Mr. Dengue’s minions and win special Mr. Dengue premiums! The public can also learn how to build their own mosquito traps as well as identify mosquito breeding areas in a home as part of the planned activities to encourage you and your family to practice good dengue prevention habits.
Head to www.facebook.com/mymrdengue and ‘like’ the page to receive dengue awareness and prevention information on your Facebook timeline. Download the ‘Protection Against Dengue’ brochure on the Meet Mr Dengue Tab at the Facebook page to keep up to date on dengue prevention habits.

Additionally, take the Dengue Readiness Quiz at www.denguemissionbuzz.org to find out how prepared you are against the disease

BREAK FREE FROM THE WORRY, PROTECT YOU AND YOUR FAMILY FROM SCARS WITH HIRUSCAR AND HIRUSCAR KIDS
Hiruscar and Hiruscar Kids, a scar care brand, launched the ‘My Hero-Scar’ campaign to raise awareness among parents on the importance of outdoor play time for children’s physical and psychological development. The campaign also aims at encouraging parents to allow their children to explore and enjoy outdoor activities without worrying their little ones getting permanent scars from bruises and scrapes as long as it is treated properly with the right scar care product.

“Technology and the urbanized environment these days keep our children from enjoying the mother-nature as we used to do when our generation was growing up. Children are very active and may fall and sustain from injuries while they are playing outdoors. More often than not, parents would prevent such incident from occurring again. Instead of protecting their children at all times and preventing them to participate in any outdoor activities, parents should let children be children – allow them to be adventurous because it is part of growing up.

Hiruscar and Hiruscar Kids offer an efficient and convenient solution to make sure adults and children don’t keep scars but only good memories from their outdoor activities. Ultimately, the ‘My Hero-Scar’ campaign aims to provide parents the assurance that while children can be active and adventurous, they do not have to worry about children’s scars as they are well taken care with Hiruscar and Hiruscar Kids,” said Koon Yin Pang, Senior Manager, Consumer Health Lead, Marketing Management, Consumer Health of DKSH Malaysia Sdn Bhd.

Often, parents believe that their children are safer indoors. Technology and an increasing range of home entertainment make it easy to keep children from playing outdoors. According to a study done by the regional parenting portal theAsianparent.com, 98% of parents in Southeast Asia allow their children to use IT devices regularly.[1] 41% of these children aged between three and eight years old spend more than an hour per sitting on their devices.

While it is inevitable in today’s technology-driven world to ban the use of devices, parents should nevertheless be aware of the negative effects of an extensive use of electronic devices such as addiction or the correlation of device usage with childhood obesity.[3] In order to counter those risks, parents should consider more outdoor activities for their children.

(L-R) Dr. M.S Priyadarshini, industrial and organizational psycologist and Ms. Pang Koon Yin, Senior Manager, Consumer Health Lead, Marketing Management, Consumer Health of DKSH Malaysia Sdn Bhd. officially launch the ‘My Hero-Scar’ campaign. 
Dr M.S. Priyadarshini, an industrial and organizational psychologist who is also a life skills development trainer explained that “Outdoor activities have important physical and psychological advantages on a child’s development. They stimulate for example a faster brain development. Children that play more outdoors are prone to be more active and hence less likely to be overweight while growing up. Besides, they become better learners, socialize more through group play and will therefore later on be more capable of connecting to others.

Parents are therefore advised to let their children play more outdoors and not to be over-protective. It is part of growing up for children to occasionally get cuts or minor injuries that might lead to scars if left untreated. Apart from these incidences, adults and children can also acquire scars from chickenpox, measles or mosquito bites.

According to Health Department director-general Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah, Malaysia counted about 167 cases of chickenpox last year. The prevalence of measles was even higher. Compared to the same period in 2015, the prevalence of measles has increased of about 340%.

About 18% of the children who have had chickenpox for example are likely to get scars mainly on their faces, thorax, abdomen and back. This might affect the child’s self-confidence and self-esteem.
The fun treasure hunt during the launch of the ‘My Hero-Scar’ campaign creates nice family memories and strengthens the bond between parents and their kids. 
Therefore, the launch of ‘My-Hero Scar’ campaign is timely and useful to reach out to Malaysians to help them learn and treat wounds and scars effectively.

It does not take much to have minor wounds and scrapes. A trip over the stairs, mishandle a kitchen knife, small burns or any other life events can leave small or large scars. Most of us have one or even more scars to remind us of such situation. It is something common and Malaysians should be informed that they can overcome scarring with treatment and by using the right scar care product.

“With Hiruscar and Hiruscar Kids, young kids and adults are able to enjoy the essential moments in life and help break free from their scarring conditions”, added Koon Yin.

Hiruscar and Hiruscar Kids can help both children and their parents at every stage of life to break free from their scarring conditions as it provides a simple, safe, convenient and efficient way to relieve scarring. Regularly applied on closed wounds, it helps your skin to recover to its previous smoothness.
