Unilab: Developing a Culture of Excellence and Compassion

Undergoing surgery can be quite a frightening experience. As a patient, being well-prepared is important because it will have an impact not just on the procedure itself but also on how well one recovers from it. When I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism a few years ago and was told by my doctor that surgery is inevitable, I knew that I have to do my part to ensure that everything goes well. For someone like me who hasn’t been confined in a hospital before, undergoing a major surgery can be terrifying. What made it easier on my part is the fact that my surgeon is considered as one of the best in his field. He is very competent and has shown great compassion throughout the whole process. He was always ready to answer any questions that I may have and made sure that I have all the information that I need that will help me prepare for the surgery. The competence and genuine concern of the hospital staff has made my recovery an even more pleasant experience. Even when I was told that I had to undergo two more procedures (a complete thyroidectomy four months after the first surgery and an RAI Treatment a few weeks after) I was confident that everything will go well because I have highly competent and compassionate people on my side and that after all the treatments, I can only look forward to an improved health condition.

The whole experience has made me realize that as long as people practice excellence and compassion in anything that they do, whatever sector in society they may belong to, they can bring about a positive change to another person’s life and they can contribute greatly to the progress of the community. Having the core principles of excellence and compassion is what makes individuals and companies achieve sustainable success. This does not apply only to professionals  who hold important positions in major companies but also for any individual who want to create a positive impact and make life easier not just for himself or his immediate family but more importantly, to the people he interacts with.

When we became parents, my husband and I made sure that we will do everything we can to provide the love and care that our children need. We know that nurturing them properly will be instrumental in how well they will develop as individuals. We always make sure that their needs are met (this includes making sure that they receive proper nourishment and that they receive proper guidance during the early stages of their physical, mental and emotional development). I have read countless books and articles and have talked with older relatives and trusted friends that can provide us with sound parenting advice. I also keep myself updated on the latest in child care and nutrition as well as effective parenting techniques.

We still have a long way to go; we know that parenting is a continuously evolving process. What we know for sure is that as long as we continue to do our best and continue to hold on to the core values that we have, our desire of becoming ‘successful’ parents is possible.

The belief in the power of excellence of compassion can also be found in Unilab’s latest advocacy campaign and this is something that I would like to share with all of you. Why? Because I believe that we, Filipinos, as individuals and as a nation collectively have Husay and Malasakit (Excellence and Compassion) as our major core values. We always strive to do our best in everything that we do regardless of how trivial or significant we think they may be. Whatever role we play, be it an entrepreneur, an office employee, a healthcare provider, a teacher or a parent, we make sure that our excellence and compassion are evident.

All Day Confidence with Priva Intimate Wash

An #OOTD post is something that most of us would come across online several times a day. Whether they are of friends or of random people, these posts do not only give us an idea on the latest fashion trends or what to wear the next time we go out but they also give people a chance to express their own sense of style. Although we all have our own considerations on how to decide which specific look to go for on a specific day (such as comfort, style, the weather, our present mood, etc.), I’m sure that most people would agree that there is one important factor that can truly help us pull off the look that we want – confidence. And it’s not just about looking confident but also about feeling confident.

For moms like me who are always on the go and have to attend to multiple tasks throughout the day, it is important that we do not only put together an outfit that make us look good but also make us feel confident. We also need to have products that we can rely on that will make us confident as we go through the day,whether we putting together a creative and nutritious lunch for the children, attending a parent-teacher conference or doing some last minute grocery shopping for some food essentials.

This is why having good personal hygiene habit is important. We need to have access to safe and effective personal hygiene products that will make us feel clean and confident throughout the day. It can be such as hassle and not to mention time consuming if we have to take a trip to the nearest restroom several times a day just to make sure that we still look (and smell) good.

One of these essential must-haves for women would have to be a feminine wash. The use of a wrong one can cause different problems such as irritation and skin breakouts.

If you are still in the process of choosing a feminine wash, then look no further, because Unilab, a trusted name in quality health care, has recently launched a new line of feminine wash that caters to the varying needs that women of different lifestyles have. Priva Intimate Wash has two variants that offer specialized benefits that I’m sure any woman would love.

 

Priva Intimate Wash by pH Care
 

 

What is Priva ?

Priva Intimate Wash by pH Care is the first and only cooling wash that is formulated to give extra special benefits and to revitalize the delicate feminine area. Cooling is still one of the drivers for freshness and cleanliness when it comes to feminine wash usage – the cooling is brought about by Revitacool™, a special ingredient that leaves a tangible cooling effect. It is a product of Unilab, a trusted name in safe, effective and affordable healthcare products.

It has a pH-balanced formulation combined with tried and tested ingredients that deliver a number of benefits including skin lightening, firming and improved skin elasticity.

 

Priva Skin Lightening and Cooling
 

Priva Skin Lightening and Cooling

♦          Formulated with gluthathione, a renowned whitening ingredient, and natural strawberry extracts that help lighten dark skin areas.

♦          Contains Revitacool™, a gentle cooling ingredient to keep you cool and refreshed every time you wash.

 

 

Priva Skin Firming and Cooling

Priva Skin Firming and Cooling

♦          Formulated with collagen, a known firming ingredient combined with natural extracts of Kwao Krua, an herbal root found in Thailand, that helps improve skin elasticity and firmness.

♦          Has Witch Hazel extracts that help retain the skin’s natural moisture.

♦          Contains Revitacool™, a special ingredient that gives an extra cool feeling after wash.

 

Is Priva safe for everyday use?

Despite the product having specialized benefits, Priva Intimate Wash is clinically tested by obstetrician-gynecologists to be safe for everyday use in the intimate area and, with regular use, to deliver noticeable skin lightening in 2 weeks and skin firming in 6 weeks.

 

My take:

I was given the opportunity to try both variants and I must say that I am satisfied with both of them. I have actually been using pH Care for years now but I wasn’t hesitant about trying Priva since it is also from Unilab. I am very particular about trying new products particularly personal hygiene products because I don’t want to have the same unpleasant experience that I’ve had with the other products that I have tried before. I am also prone to skin irritations and allergies which is why I stick to specific products that are suitable for me.

What I like about Priva is that it truly makes me feel fresh and clean all day. I also like the fact that the smell is not overpowering. For now, I can’t attest to the skin lightening and skin firming effect that Priva offers since I have only been using the product for a little over a week. What I can say for sure is that aside from being safe for everyday use, the cooling effect does last for hours and it’s also very practical because a 150mL bottle will surely last for a long time since a small amount is enough for every wash. I do hope that they will also have Priva feminine wipes in the near future just like pH Care.

 

Whatever outfit you may choose at any given day, it can only be effective and worthy of an #OOTD post if you are confident and you stay confident all day. And I believe being confident begins with knowing that you can stay clean and fresh all day by using safe and effective products such as Priva.

Product Review : All Day Freshness with pH Care Feminine Wipes

The use of public restrooms is something that all of us are wary about especially since we know that the risk of getting exposed to bacteria, germs and virus is considerably high in such places. There are instances, however, when we have no choice but to use the nearest public restroom. I remember when I had to stay for a couple of days at the hospital for an RAI treatment that even though I won’t be sharing the restroom with other patients (the treatment requires that I stay in isolation in my room), I made sure that I brought with me all my personal hygiene essentials to make sure that I stay clean, fresh and protected. One of my personal hygiene must haves is my feminine wash. Using it has been part of my daily personal hygiene routine. (After my stay at the hospital though, I had to leave everything including my bottle of feminine wash because I cannot bring anything back home since everything must be disposed immediately due to the nature of my treatment).

 

 

Although the use of feminine wash is quite common these days, bringing a bottle with you wherever you go is not possible or even practical. It’s a good thing there is pH Care Feminine Wipes. I have been using pH Care Feminine Wash for quite some time now and I must say, I am truly glad that Unilab now has the feminine wipes version of it. What do I like about pH Care Feminine Wipes? It is pH-balanced, hypo-allergenic and alcohol free. You get the same gentle cleansing effect that you get from the feminine wash variety. It is clinically tested and safe for everyday use so you don’t have to worry about irritation in your intimate area. More importantly, what I like about it is that it is from Unilab, a trusted name in quality healthcare.

 

 

pH Care Feminine Wipes is readily available in most drug stores and supermarkets nationwide. It comes in two variants, Cool Wind and Passionate Bloom. Each travel pack contains 10 wipes. Go give it a try and see for yourself why it is a must have not just for busy women on the go or work-at-home moms like me but for all women who value feminine care and hygiene.
