Can you be sure that your breath is minty fresh? Would you know if what’s coming out from your mouth is more unpleasant than delightful? Are we aware that our bad breath can scare people away? But, if you do discover that your breath is less than fragrant, don’t despair! 

However , like it or not, we live in a world where impressions matter. First impressions, particularly, ensure if you ‘make it or break it’. 

These are challenging times for our Malaysian youth as they face daily battles at work or play. Fitting into what’s termed ‘acceptable’ can be stressful at times and focusing on health and wellness, may not always be prioritized, though it can make all the difference in the world! 

Bad Breath, Body Odour, Acne, Dry Skin, Dandruff… all carry a certain stigma to the unfortunate bearers, however, we should just point fingers and alienate the poor person. We should take the time to learn how we can tackle this  problem at the roots, hence the birth of the ‘Himalaya Wellness, Helping You Overcome Obstacles’ campaign.

The story of Himalaya began way back in 1930, when the founder, Mr. Manal was riding through the wilderness of Burma to unravel the mysteries of nature and with the mission of providing people gentle, safe and effective herbal products for the entire family. This was when he discovered the many uses and effectiveness of herbs. 

Over the years, Himalaya has made a conscious effort to deepen their commitment in supports of green initiatives and inspiring people all over the world to achieve wellness in their life. Moving towards their goal of becoming a 100% Green Company, the products indeed deliver on their promise. With over 250 products spanning pharmaceuticals, personal care, supplements, general health care and oral care, they touch the lives of people in many different ways.

“As consumers become more aware of chemicals and other ingredients in the products that they ingest and apply, herbal alternatives and products have seen a gradual increase in the level of acceptance and uptake by consumers as a whole. We constantly strive to bring out the best of healing properties from what nature offers us, and with ingredients like pomegranate, cloves, spinach and such used in the creation of our oral care range, it is no wonder that our toothpastes are one of our best selling products!” Yan added.
