Experience a New, Smarter Way to Shop for Skincare with POND’S and Shopee

gbafNews28

Chat, Snap, and Buy skincare products that best suit your needs with the Skin Advisor Live (SAL)

 

MANILA, PHILIPPINES – Media OutReach – 18 January 2021 – It is no secret that more and more skincare concerns have been noticed by Filipinas over the past few months. Continued working from home, constant exposure to the blue light from our computer screens and perpetual mask-wearing have all taken their toll on our precious faces. Coupled with a saturated skincare market, it is getting more difficult, even overwhelming, to find the best products for our personal skin needs. With these unseemly neverending skincare concerns, POND’S has teamed up with Shopee, the leading e-commerce platform in Southeast Asia and Taiwan, to integrate its Skin Advisor Live or SAL chatbot on the platform.

Research by the POND’S Institute shows that common skincare issues in the Philippines, such as dullness, dark spots, wrinkles, acne and oily skin, were intensified by prolonged mask wearing and continued all-day exposure to our screens. The POND’S Institute predicts that many of these skincare issues will persist in 2021, as those behaviours will continue to be mainstays of our everyday lives in this “new normal.”

However, the good news is, POND’S SAL can help identify the skin issues particular to each person. The cutting-edge AI chatbot can diagnose key skin concerns based on an individual’s selfie or uploaded photo, and expertly recommend products that will best suit what it needs. All it takes is three easy steps: CHAT with SAL via the Unilever store on the Shopee platform, SNAP a selfie, and BUY the personalized regime recommendation based on the selfie analysis results. For example, if a user has a high acne score, the Acne Clear facial foam will be recommended as it fights 99% of germs. Users with a high wrinkle score will be recommended the Age Miracle Day Cream, which has Vitamin B3 to offer strong protection against blue light.

 

“Our goal is to provide consumers with the most up-to-date and pioneering skincare solutions,” said Rohit Bhasin, Global Brand Vice President, POND’S. “Our research from the POND’S Institute helps inform our innovation so we are continually updating our diverse range of products to cater to a variety of skincare needs. POND’S SAL helps consumers on their skincare journey by identifying their own skincare concerns and points them to products which may be able to help — all from the comfort of their sofa. And with this first-of-its-kind integration onto Shopee, this journey just got even easier, smarter and more enjoyable, helping consumers from feeling overwhelmed by the choice of skincare products online.”

 

“We’re excited to be the first e-commerce platform to partner with a globally-recognised beauty brand like POND’S, to offer consumers across Southeast Asia easy access to personalised skincare solutions. Our insights show that Shopee users spend time on our app interacting with brands through features such as livestream and chat. SAL will be a bonus feature for them to engage deeper with the brand and learn more about their skin, while enjoying great product deals from POND’S,” said Ian Ho, Regional Managing Director, Shopee.

 

The POND’S Super Brand Day on Shopee will run on 20th — 22nd January, featuring educational content and exclusive promotions. For more information on trying out POND’S SAL at Shopee, please visit here.

Amazon to host first Southeast Asia Seller Summit for small and medium-sized businesses to Start Local, Go Global

gbafNews28

The two-day complimentary virtual event focuses on empowering small and medium-sized businesses to develop strategies and skills to reach more customers locally and globally

 

SINGAPORE – Media OutReach – 18 January 2021 – (NASDAQ:AMZN) – With online purchases on the rise and more consumers becoming digital-first in their shopping journey[1]Amazon is hosting its inaugural  Southeast Asia Seller Summit to help small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) across the region reach more customers worldwide. The Amazon Southeast Asia Online Seller Summit 2021 will be held on January 28 and 29, 2021, 10am SGT onwards.

[View Image]

Minister for Trade and Industry, Mr Chan Chun Sing, will grace the virtual event on January 28, 10am SGT as the Guest-of-Honour. He will be joined by leaders of Amazon Singapore, industry experts, and local business owners selling on Amazon.sg. With the focus on ‘Start Local, Go Global’, the Summit will discuss the impact of e-commerce trends and how local businesses can sell online with Amazon’s 18 marketplaces to expand internationally.

 

The Amazon Southeast Asia Online Seller Summit 2021 will make online cross-border selling more accessible to SMBs and equip them with the insights and resources to address rapidly evolving consumer demands and expectations. Sellers can learn about top product categories and how to grow their business online, with Amazon Merchandising and Brand Success Tools, while managing their logistics with Fulfilment by Amazon (FBA). Additionally, the Summit will include 1:1 sessions with third party service providers (logistics and payment companies) from Amazon’s Service Provider Network to share best practices for businesses to bounce back quicker from the impact of COVID-19 and expand their retail presence. Furthermore, sellers can connect with one another and learn about the skills development programs offered by Amazon.

 

“Supporting small and medium-sized businesses has been a fundamental part of the work we do at Amazon and we are excited to continue expanding our support for sellers in Singapore and Southeast Asia,” said Henry Low, Country Manager, Amazon Singapore. “I believe that everything big starts with something small. With our growing resources and support for local sellers here, we want to empower them to seize the huge opportunities in selling online and across shores — helping them start local, go global. As of today, we offer over 135 tools and services to help sellers worldwide manage their businesses. The Amazon Southeast Asia Online Seller Summit 2021 is another milestone for us to bring more sellers online, support their growth journey, and connect them with customers everywhere.” 

 

In addition to industry and consumer insights, participating SMBs can access professional training courses, 1:1 consultations, and programs to sell with Amazon. Local sellers on Amazon will also share their best practices and advice for SMBs. For instance, hear from Debbie Cai, founder of Rui Smiths, on how the hunger to build something of her own led her to quit her job as a news editor in New York City and become an entrepreneur. Since 2014, Debbie has been able to sell internationally with Amazon, despite a limited retail background, and grow Rui Smiths across twelve countries — US, Canada, Mexico, UK, Germany, Italy, France, Spain, Australia, Netherlands, Singapore and most recently, Sweden.

 

“My fellow seller ambassadors and the other sellers I have met through Amazon have been invaluable as a support network for me and my business. Some of the tips and insights we exchanged have affirmed my knowledge that we are all on the right track. I am looking forward to launching new products this year while widening my distribution circle internationally, by leveraging Amazon’s reach and tools. At the Amazon Southeast Asia Online Seller Summit 2021, I hope to share some of these learnings and experiences that have been fundamental to the success of my business,” said Debbie Cai, founder, Rui Smiths.

 

For a more hands-on guide to selling on Amazon, participants can join the workshop sessions hosted by Amazon on Day 2, January 29, 2021, between 10am and 5pm SGT.
