Halo Room- Malaysia's First Halotherapy (Salt Therapy) Centre @ Neo Damansara, Damansara Perdana

Tuesday, August 28, 2018 0 Comments A+ a-

I do recall my Dad message reminding us to gargle a cup of salt water when you wake up from sleep every morning. You will find it amazing way for soothing the sore throat problem and also oral health issue. There are so many benefits from SALT. I just discover the newly opened Halo Room located at Neo Damansara (Damansara Perdana) that provides Salt Therapy. It is a natural remedy that helps reduce inflammation, destroys bacteria, & strengthens your immune system.  

The Halo Room offers a natural and holistic treatment for adults and children of all ages. Salt Therapy, also known as halotherapy, has been known to detoxify the respiratory system, heal skin conditions, and improve sleep, breathing, and the overall wellbeing.

Salt Therapy is a proven method that works by infusing a room with salt-enriched air that is inhaled seamlessly while you relax. The salt eliminates mucus, reduces inflammation, and opens up constricted airways, allowing you to breathe easily. 

Here you can check the practice using salt since 3,000 years ago-  History of Halotheraphy
There are 3 types of room in Halo Room - Private Room, Adults Room and Family Room. You need to call to make early reservation to book for seats.
The Private Room features an outer space to change and disrobe if desired. Guests who wish to expose areas of their body with inflammation or issues to the salt can do so in comfort and privacy. A Salt Therapist will adjust the settings for the session based on the guest’s wishes and dry salt aerosol salt is circulated in the room.

Unique retreat improve health and build strong immune system .weird but wonderful experience dont underestimate the healing power of salt 
Adult rooms that accommodates 7 people - Comfortable and reclinable chairs are provided, and relaxing spa music plays throughout the session. They also provide salt lamp lights for guests who wish to read during their session.
Family Room is equipped with music, toys, a baby mat, and a TV for the little ones. Adults / Guardians must be inside all the time.
Dry salt air is more powerful than moist air. The negatively charged ions in salt improve our health and mood. Inhaling particles may reduce inflammation and mucus in the lungs, improving respiratory conditions such as asthma, allergies, bronchitis, sinus congestion and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease 

Before entering the room, we put our belongings inside the lockers. We need to wear the shower cap, provided booties and kids need to wear socks.Ensure all have drink enough water before enter.

How Salt Therapy Works
As you relax in our salt room, you will inhale the micro-particles of dry pharmaceutical grade salt deep into your lungs. The process heals you by absorbing bacteria and pollutants, and eliminates the mucus and inflammation found in your body. This allows oxygen to travel through your airways, making it easier for you to breathe. Overall, Salt Therapy results in the subsidence of your symptoms, in addition to you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.

Or get a story book to read on

The first feeling is for sure abit weird for them. Girl keep asking what is the white thing covering her socks and why we are here. So once mummy explained to her that this is salt and it helps for her dry skin condition and also helps in little brother cold and flu too. They play and feeling comfort inside after the 5 minutes warming up session.
Kids enjoy playing with the salt-covered floors like sand on a beach.

Salt Therapy can treat the following:

chronic bronchitis • asthma • cold/flu • ear infection • breathlessness, chest tightness • pneumonia  • acne • smoker's cough (including secondary smoke) • mucus plugs • insomnia • frequent acute disorders of respiratory tract • pharyngitis •allergies • sinusitis/sinus inflammation • respiratory infections • rhinitis • tonsillitis • eczema and more

Customer might encounter this symptom after the session. But it is just normal and temporary only.

You can also purchase the Pharmaceutical Grade salt and Himalaya rock salt

Overall it was a new experience for all of us. Clean, comfortable, and curative environment. I do hope with the next 4 session, my kids can benefit from it especially to build up their immune system, helps in their common cold and flu and also my baby eczema condition. I am surprised to discover that 45 minutes halo therapy session is equals to 3 days on the beach!

Kira Kira’s diapers and baby care products roll out in Malaysia

Sunday, August 26, 2018 0 Comments A+ a-

Japanese cuteness, comfort and quality make happy babies
Babies are born explorers, so why not let them do so in comfort and style? Kira Kira, a premium diaper and baby care brand enhanced with Japanese ingenuity, has just arrived on Malaysian shores to do just that!

The brand’s star products, the Kira Kira Airy Soft Premium Diapers and the Kira Kira Ultra Soft & Dry Premium Pants, have impressed many parents. Happy testimonials from customers on its website showed that their babies are happier, playing more and generally in a better mood.

“Kira Kira’s motto is ‘true quality through simplicity’. Our diapers are certainly designed with that principle in mind. Using innovative Japanese technology, we have created Japanese designed, airy and ultra-soft premium tape and pants diapers that keep our precious little ones cosy and contended all day long,” explains Patt Sue-Ann, Commercial Director – MOOCC of DSG Malaysia Sdn Bhd.

An example, she adds, is the brand’s Magic Dry Bubble Sheet that offers superb and rapid absorption to keep baby bottoms dry and fresh.

“Of course, the kawaii patterns on our diapers means that your little princes and princesses look as good as they feel!” she says.

For greater convenience, parents can opt for the Ultra Soft & Dry Premium Pants, which are available in a wide range of sizes from M to XXL. Its premium breathable materials and two-layer absorbency extend the dry and fresh feeling for longer. Not only that, the soft and gentle fit of waist and legs allows little ones to explore with ease. 

Available in New Born and S sizes, the Airy Soft Premium Tape Diapers are contoured to the waist line and made with premium soft breathable materials. Parents can also easily know when it is time to change the diaper, thanks to the wetness indicator on it, thus keeping rashes or skin irritations at bay. The ultra-soft re-fastenable tapes secure the diaper in place and help babies stay comfortable and cosy all day long.
My baby girl using Ultra Soft & Dry Premium Pants (Size M). Since she turning very fast during diaper change, I need to quickly grab her leg and easily wear the diaper pant for her. Comfortable, soft plus good absorption!

Love the cute design too

Other than diapers, organic baby care products are also Kira Kira’s forte.

“As parents ourselves, we are passionate about taking care of baby’s delicate skin. Made from pure organic ingredients, Kira Kira’s baby care products are developed based on Japanese formulas and are completely free from harsh chemicals,” Patt points out.

The brand’s Top to Toe Wash, for example, cleanse baby’s skin effectively while retaining moisture. The camelia japonica extract leaves skin soft and supple to the touch. Parents also need not worry about residue as the baby wash, available in 400ml bottles, rinses off easily.

Containing organic baobab, the Kira Kira Baby Lotion (380ml) is a great nourishment for baby skin after bath. The super-light, non-sticky water-based formula quickly absorbs into skin and keeps it hydrated.

Nappy cream is also an essential baby care toiletry, and Kira Kira has got you covered. Easy to apply with a light texture, the cream packs with the goodness of chamomile extract and shea butter in its 50ml tube. It heals, soothes and moisturises while protecting the delicate skin from more occurrence of nappy rash.

Another compelling reason to choose Kira Kira? Price. Despite its use of premium materials and absorption technology, Kira Kira tape diapers and diaper pants are competitively priced. The same goes for its organic baby care products – Kira Kira’s baby wash, baby lotion and nappy cream are more wallet-friendly compared with a few other brands in the same premium baby care segment.

For bigger savings, savvy consumers can purchase Kira Kira products at the online marketplace Shopee. Simply visit http://bit.ly/KiraKiraShopee, purchase products worth more than RM100 and enter the promo code “KK25LAUNCH” during checkout for discount. * Promotion ends 30th September 2018.

Give your babies the gift of comfort and quality care as they explore the world. For more information about Kira Kira, visit and like www.facebook.com/kirakiramalaysia.

New and Improved Drypers Wee Wee Dry to Make Diapering Easier for Parents

Friday, August 24, 2018 0 Comments A+ a-

Every year more than half a million babies are brought into the world and placed in the arms of their loving parents, many of whom are first-time mothers and fathers. New parents find themselves on a fast-paced journey of learning and discovering how to best care for their baby. Among the many things parents must consider are which diaper should they buy and what size of diaper would best suit their baby or when they should change the diaper size to best fit their little one.

With this in mind, Drypers continuously help parents who face these challenges by listening to them and introducing new features that simplifies diapering. Malaysia’s leading diaper brand continues to set a benchmark in its category making parenthood journey simpler for parents with the launch of a new and improved version of its best-selling diaper, the Drypers Wee Wee Dry.
Ms. Evelyn Chan, Marketing Director of Vinda Marketing (M) Sdn. Bhd & Ms. Yapp Pau Ling, Sales Director of Vinda Marketing (M) Sdn. Bhd showing the new features of new & improved Drypers Wee Wee Dry - Tummy Fit Guide & 6 AbsorbDRY layers.
The new Drypers Wee Wee Dry diaper is the first in Malaysia to provide an ideal size indicator with Tummy Fit Guide*. This feature is printed on the taping zone and enables parents especially new fathers to identify whether the diaper is a good fit or if another size is required. Busy parents who sometimes can forget to change diaper size can now utilize this feature to ensure their baby stays dry and comfortable. Using a diaper that is the best fit helps eliminate the chance of any leakage and ensures that the baby’s comfort is prioritised. The Tummy Fit Guide is also a helpful aid for parents to monitor their baby’s growth.

“The new Drypers Wee Wee Dry’s unique attributes will be appreciated by parents in Malaysia. Navigating parenthood is already challenging so we believe our new enhanced features will make things easier. The 6 AbsorbDRY layers help to evenly distribute wetness throughout the diaper and lock in urine to prevent leakage, allowing the baby to feel free and at ease. With these new features, Drypers’ Wee Wee Dry offers the best fit to keep baby skin dry and comfortable, so that parents & baby can enjoy the amazing moments of growth together,” said Ms. Evelyn Chan, Marketing Director of Vinda Marketing (M) Sdn Bhd.

Understanding that newborns have particularly delicate skin, Drypers has designed a diaper to cater for these needs with the Soft AbsorbDRY Layers and Stool Lock System, which is a soft perforated top layer that helps manage and effectively absorb loose stool, keeping baby’s delicate skin clean and healthy. The Navel Care cut out design above the taping zone prevents contact and friction where the newborn baby’s umbilical cord stump is and keeps that area exposed to air flow.

“Drypers’ Wee Wee Dry diapers now come with fresh and playful animal designs that reflect close connections between parents and their babies. These colourful designs are not only attractive, but also make diaper changing an experience that encourages fun interactions between parents and their babies, enabling them to foster the unique bond they share,” Ms. Chan added.

Various games, a balloon giveaway, a dance performance, a magician and a clown will be part of the launch event and activities. Creating more excitement around the launch of the new Wee Wee Dry diaper, Drypers will be on the road with the Drypers Blue Wheels to paint the streets blue with numerous promotional activities. Drypers customers can look to the official website and social media for opportunities to win special prizes.

Drypers has an active online parenting club - the Drypers Baby Club, now over 400,000 parents have joined its online community.
