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