Mega Lifesciences launches GLOW in India
Launch: Marketing Manager Mega LifeSciences India Amit Varma,
Rozanne Diasz, Meew Liew - Miss Malaysia Fitness 2004 and
Regional Director Mega LifeSciences Sudhir Gandhi.
After the successful launch of GLOW in various markets like Thailand,
Vietnam, Phillipines, Malaysia, Ukraine, Russia and Sri Lanka, GLOW was
introduced in India for the first time.
Country Head Sri Lanka for Mega LifeSciences, Praveen Viswakumaran
said GLOW’s success in Sri Lanka, was highlighted at the Indian launch,
with none other than former beauty queen Rozanne Diasz being present.
“Rozanne Diasz, Miss Sri Lanka for Miss Universe 2005 was the first
girl in Sri Lanka to become a brand ambassador for GLOW, hence it was
only fitting that she attended the press conference in New Delhi’s
Continental Hotel and shared her GLOW experience”, said Viswakumaran.
GLOW contains various plant extracts and marine proteins that help
nourish the skin, keeping it healthy, radiant and glowing. GLOW is a
dietary supplement and hence complements one’s diet.
GLOW is 100 per cent natural, safe and a very effective food
supplement. Under the guidance of Dr Fabrice Perin from the Spin Control
Institute of France, a study was undertaken on GLOW which concluded that
GLOW improves the complexion or colour or health of the skin by 40 per
cent, the luminosity or shine of the skin by 21 per cent, the brightness
of the skin by 51 per cent and softness or fineness of the skin by 51
Glow helps fight free radicals and supplements collagen (proteins
which make up more than 75 per cent of the skin) making the skin smooth
and wrinkle free.
Glow is targeted at women who are conscious about their inner beauty
while men can also use it.
Dr. Smith Sain, a leading cosmetologist, spoke on the occasion and
emphasized the importance of healthy eating, as well as the intake of
food supplements such as GLOW to one’s diet regime so as to keep the
skin in the best of health.
Regional Director Sudhir Gandhi added that Mega Lifesciences started
its operations 25 years ago in Thailand, doing original equipment
manufacturing and leading in soft gel capsule manufacturing.
Ambassador: Muralitharan receiving Ceylinco Life’s
congratulatory plaque from R. Renganathan in the presence of
directors and senior staff of Ceylinco Life and Muralitharan’s
Manager Kushil Gunasekera.
Test cricket’s leading wicket taker of all time Muttiah Muralitharan
has been felicitated by his life insurance partner Ceylinco Life on
achieving this historic milestone.
Murali, who is an ambassador for Ceylinco Life’s campaign to create
greater awareness in Sri Lanka about the value and need for life
insurance, was presented with a congratulatory plaque by the company
“Murali’s image as a great sportsman and family man has helped us
promote life insurance as an essential safety net for families,” said
Ceylinco Life’s Chief Executive Director R. Renganathan.
“By becoming the highest wicket taker in test cricket, he has also
given Sri Lankans something to be proud about, and it gives us great
pleasure to have Murali on our team.”
Ceylinco Life’s ‘Life, Love, Protection’ campaign is designed to
build better understanding at a generic level, of the need for and value
of life insurance, rather than to promote specific insurance products.
Studies by Ceylinco Life have indicated that one of the causes for
the relatively low penetration of life insurance in the local market is
a lack of understanding of the rationale for these products.
Shell helps generate power for better lifestyle
Shell Gas has not only changed the lifestyle of many Sri Lankan
housewives by providing a clean, convenient and safe cooking fuel, but
is forging ahead to protect the natural beauty of Sri Lanka by offering
alternative energy for power generators and water pumps for
agricultural, industrial and residential use.
In lush areas untouched by human hands, Shell has taken steps to
support the economy of Sri Lanka by joining hands with Cimplus Lanka (Pvt)
Limited to promote LPG powered Generators and Water Pumps via its
islandwide distribution channel to areas where no grid power or proper
irrigation methods are available.
A Memorandum of Understanding was signed recently between Shell Gas
Lanka Limited and Cimplus Lanka (Pvt) Limited thus strengthening their
impact in enhancing the lifestyle of Sri Lankans by offering rural
electrification through LPG powered generators as an alternative to
kerosene lamps and the more expensive solar panels together with
eco-friendly LPG powered water pumps for households and the agricultural
The capacity of generators range from 700w to 5,000w and single phase
to three phase. Customers will be offered a total energy solution that
will include a new 12.5 kg Shell Gas cylinder, an LPG hose, regulator
Currently, the cost of fuel to generate this power for this
application is much lower than the cost of petrol & diesel.
While uplifting the life style of the rural sector where access to
the main grid is not available and alternate methods are too expensive,
Shell has taken a positive measure to protect the environment of Sri
