Help Save the Planet with Watsons Sustainable Choices

September 05, 2021 0 Comments

With more and more people aware of the current environmental challenges we face, like climate change, brands such as Watsons have made it their duty to listen, search and adapt in their own way.


Watsons Sustainable Choices


Thus, the campaign SUSTAINABLE CHOICES by Watsons was created. Launched to promote products that will fit into customers' sustainable lifestyles, Watsons hopes to create a ripple effect that would make people inspired to do the right thing for themselves, and for everyone to keep making sustainable choices in their daily lives. 


Sustainable Choices will help customers “Look Good. Do Good. Feel Great” and, in the process, reduce their environmental footprint as the retailer puts sustainability at the core of brand development and sourcing, from packaging to ingredient choices.


Clean Beauty - Watsons Sustainable Choices


These are aimed to help shoppers make Sustainable Choices by providing them with better options, including Clean Beauty, the use of Better Ingredients, and Better Packaging and Refilling, as part of a long-term commitment to protecting the environment anchored on four pillars-Community, People, Customers, and Planet.



Clean Beauty - Watsons Sustainable Choices

Clean Beauty


Carrying a wide range of Clean Beauty products available at affordable prices, the store's Clean Beauty products contain better ingredients that are sourced responsibly with an eye toward sustainability. These products don’t contain ingredients like Hydroquinone, Triclosan, Quaternium-15, Chloroacetamide, Triclocarban, Phthalates, O-phenyl phenol, Borates, Methylene glycol, and Microplastic beads. Watsons Philippines recognize brands and products that were carefully created to benefit consumers, the community, and the planet. For a list of Clean Beauty products, check this out https://www.watsons.com.ph/clean-beauty.


Watsons Sustainable Choices - Choose Refill
Reuse & Refill  

Watsons Philippines believe in reusing so it will make refill packs available for purchase so they can reuse the original containers of shampoos, conditioners, lotions, and other personal care products, enabling them to create a habit that helps reduce waste going into landfills.


With over 8 million tons of plastic being thrown into the ocean every year, the retailer is taking a proactive stand on the use of less plastic and choosing a better plastic for packaging. 


Watsons Sustainable Choices - Better Ingredients
Better Ingredients 

Palm Oil and its derivatives are used in 70% of beauty products, and with its yield being far better than any other crop, there is no way to remove it from formulations. The problem with palm oil is that it is extremely harmful to the environment.


Watsons Philippines is committed to sourcing, offering, and promoting the best possible product options, made from ingredients that are sustainable and responsibly managed such as Sustainable Palm Oil. (Roundtable for Sustainable Plan Oil/RSPO-certified). By putting systems in place to promote sustainable palm will lead to less deforestation, a more sustainable health & beauty industry.



Watsons Sustainable Choices - Better Packaging

Better Packaging 

Biodegrading of plastic bottles takes 450+ years, while plastic bags take a grueling 20+ years, adding grave impact to the environment. Watsons Philippines promotes products packaged in recycled containers by encouraging the use of 100% sustainable paper packaging that comes from sustainably and responsibly managed forests and plantations or using bio-based or post-consumer recycled plastics. In stores, it has been encouraging shoppers to refuse single-use plastics wherever they go and instead, bring their reusable shopping bags or use eco-friendly totes.



Look Good, Do Good & Feel Great with sustainable choices 


“Sustainable brands and products recognized by Watsons should go beyond ingredients that make users beautiful inside and out. They must also uphold ethical business practices and encourage initiative in buying and sourcing ingredients. These brands should also look toward minimizing waste in their supply chain as well, and where and when possible, we are also looking at their use of packaging and their recycling and upcycling programs. It's rallying our partners and suppliers to Do Good with us,” said Viki Encarnacion, Watsons' Public Relations and Sustainability Director.


Do Good Acts

Watsons believe beyond its customers; everyone can make an impact by making simple sustainable choices every day. By embodying the “Look Good. Do Good. Feel Great” ideology, it helps us all ensure that our planet looks good for future generations by doing good today and every day!

Bio-Oil Review

September 27, 2015 0 Comments
When I was still pregnant (the year 2011) and on my 3rd trimester, I started to have stretch marks and dark marks on my belly. I don't know why or what caused it and I am not so happy about it. A few months after giving birth to my baby girl, my sister gave me this product, Bio-Oil, and said that I should try this on my stretch marks

I wasn't regularly using Bio-Oil because I got busy being a newbie mom, but whenever I get the chance,  I would diligently put some on the areas where I have a lot of stretch marks; in my belly. Anyways, months and years had passed and I forgot about using this product. But what I noticed is that my skin had lighten and my stretch marks aren't that visible in some areas of my body. I didn't use anything except  Bio-Oil. Now, I believe this brand is really effective and so I started using it again. 

Aside from using Bio-oil on my stretch marks, I also use it in my face. Yes, I even use Bio-Oil before applying make-up, its a very good moisturizer and won't leave an oily residue on my face and doesn't clog my pores.

I didn't notice it for a long time but my acne scars had lightened over the years and I believe it's because of Bio-Oil since it is the only product that I've been religiously using for years.

Bio-Oil contains numerous ingredients that help the skin, become softer and smoother thereby improving the appearance of aging and wrinkled skin. With regular application, Bio-Oil helps to improve the appearance of uneven skin tone. It also prevents the formation and improves the appearance of existing stretch marks formed during pregnancy, teenage growth spurts, or periods of rapid weight gain.

Here are the Key Ingredients in Bio-Oil:

Vitamin A: Promotes the formation of new collagen and assists in skin renewal, helping to increase elasticity and improve skin’s texture and tone.

Vitamin E: Helps maintain healthy-looking skin, protecting it from the effects of free radicals which cause skin damage and premature aging. Vitamin E is also a fantastic moisturizer.

PurCellin Oil: Improves smoothness and ease of application, making Bio-Oil readily absorbed by the skin. It also acts as an emollient, leaving the skin soft, smooth, and supple.

What I liked about this product is that it absorbs quickly into my skin and it doesn't feel greasy after using it. And it smelled good too, maybe it's because of the plant extracts like the lavender oil, rosemary oil, chamomile oil and calendula oil that has been added into this product. By the way, it's hypoallergenic and ideal for all skin types, even those with sensitive skin. So far, I haven't had any problems using this product. ;)

You can buy Bio-Oil at Amazon or if you're in the Philippines, you can buy it any Watsons stores nationwide and at Lazada, click here: https://invol.co/cl141lz. :)
