Household and Personal Care with Kohl's Products

Household cleanliness and personal hygiene are important part of our daily lives.  At home and for our personal things, it is the basic concept of cleaning, grooming and always caring for our bodies. It is also important for worker health and safety in the workplace. We pay attention to personal hygiene that can prevent the spread of germs and disease and avoid developing skin allergies, skin conditions, and other sensitivities.

As we always going at the groceries , supermarkets and malls, we buy things important for our house and personal care products. We always buy rubbing alcohol, hand sanitizers,  mouthwash, skin sun block lotion and insecticides spray and a lot more. My kids are always keeping hand sanitizer in their bags everyday. They always have Puremist and Puregel Hand Sanitizer that is an easy-to-carry. I love using SkinProtec, I use especially when I am in the summer adventure these days to protect my skin from the sun.

When I was invited to attend a very intimate gathering at Valle Verde Country Club in Pasig City,  Kohl Industries Corporations Sales and Marketing Manager Ms. Nina Atilano, presented to us and discussed about household and personal care products, especially new products they have. We were familiar with many Kohl’s products aside from a new one, BULLSEYE! And I am now trying using the Bullseye insect repellant in our house and it is good and effective killing cockroaches and other insects.

Kohl Industries Corporation is a leading manufacturing company of household and industrial products in the Philippines. Kohl Industries Corporation was incorporated by a group of professionals and investors led by Aton C. Atilano in June 2002. It started commercial operations immediately thereafter, following the company’s acquisition of the rights to the brand name Doctor J Rubbing alcohol, an alcohol brand that has been in the market since 1994.

The Company’s Mission is to give consumers a cheaper but high quality homecare products. This is Kohl’s small contribution in alleviating the effects of the economic crunch that has been affecting many households in the country. At the same time, Kohl is able to provide employment and business opportunities to the Filipino community.

Kohl Industries Corporation re-launched DOCTOR J Rubbing Alcohol in January 2003 under a new and much improved formulation and packaging. With more efficient equipment and trained personnel, Kohl was able to simplify its production process and bring down its operation costs.

As a result, Kohl was able to improve its quality and likewise offer the new Doctor J Rubbing Alcohol at a price much lower than those of the leading brands. This was in line with Kohl’s objective to provide consumers with low priced but high quality cleaning agents that would deliver the best value for their money.

Doctor J Alcohol is the flag product of Kohl Industries Corporation that started it all for the company. Doctor J is available in both Isopropyl and Ethyl alcohol. Doctor J is currently used in many hospitals in the country. Doctor J is available in 70% and 40% solution in a uniquely-formulated scent.

Bactigel hand sanitizer has the HIGHEST alcohol content in locally produced sanitizers, containing 68% ethyl alcohol that is able to kill harmful bacteria and germs on hands without harming your hands.

Bactigel is used in hospitals as hand sanitizers for doctors and nurses before clinical operations. Bactigel is also now available for people outside hospitals in small bottles with rubber holders.

Orasil is an innovative mouthwash which utilizes stabilized hydrogen peroxide and xylitol, as substitutes for possibly harmful ingredients that are commonly used in other formulas. Proven to be beneficial, these two ingredients effectively whitens teeth and keeps breath fresh throughout the day.

The stabilized hydrogen peroxide found in Orasil is formulated in Switzerland. Studies show that it is more effective comported to regular hydrogen peroxide, which is usually used by dentists to clean and whiten teeth. Orasil does not mask breath with artificial flavorings, rather, it directly kills the germs that cause it, without having to drop the pH level of the mouth like other alcohol-based mouthwash. This makes sure that bacteria does not grow soon after use.

I love 70's and 80's music and songs. Here at this folk music bar, you can listen to the soothing good old folk music covers of the late ‘70s and ‘80s. Much of that music reminiscing and reviving the music of my favorite singers and bands like America, Jim Croce, Simon and Garfunkel, Bob Dylan, and many more.

Acoustic music circa 70′s to early 80′s
Not only will the live renditions of the great folk songs remind you of the joy in living life, whatever it presents you, but also the menu of appetizers and dishes, most originally concocted, telling you food and music do mix, at My Bro's Mustache.

At the end of every set of some of the country's best folk singers, the likes of Jess Bartolome, Mon Espia, Lester Demetillo, or even Florante, Lolita Carbon, Noel Cabangon who have special gigs, with pulutan to die for, you'll be glad you are home in My Bro's Mustache.
