Business Czars—The Official Student Publication of the College of Business Education 11 FEATURE/NEWS © Google Ilocos Norte is one of the best tourist destinations because of the presence of bodies of water. Our province, however, is mostly declared under state of calamity because of FROM CLOGS TO RICHNESS… OF SKIN severe flooding once a strong typhoon hits. One of the reasons why Ilocos Norte was suffering flood, particularly in Laoag City is the clogging of water lily in the water BY KJ AGCAOILI passages. With that being said, why not use it as main ingredient of a certain product that will benefit the community rather disposing it in the garbage. So the idea came up of creating the water lily as the main ingredient of facial scrub -- the Eco Water Lily Charcoal Facial Scrub or Ecoalily. It being so, the COBE Team has come up to an innovative idea that is vertically aligned to skincare products. They have contested this in the 13th Business Idea and Development Award (BIDA) held at Taguig City last September 27, 2019. Presenting it to the equally amazing panel of judges made this business idea justifiable and reasonable to its top 8 finish. Mind you, national competition it is. Ecoalily, an all-natural and eco-friendly skin care regimen is a facial scrub that moisturizes and exfoliates the skin. This lagship product is a deep cleansing product that removes dead skin cells and other unworthy particles that clogs the pores. Ecoalily comes with a promise to prevent acne, pimples, and dry patches of skin. More than this, Ecoalily is guaranteed to rejuvenate and bring back health to the skin. With regular and religious usage, it is ensured to sooth redness and skin irritations. It brightens one’s complexion and reduces acne swelling. Furthermore, Ecoalily helps with the removal of fine line, wrinkles, and scars. As a result, Ecoalily is guaranteed to leave one’s skin glowing, radiant, and healthy. Unique to other products of the same niche, Ecoalily is a natural and eco-friendly substitute to other facial scrubs that can soon be available in the market.  The ingredients of the product will be locally sourced, along with its manufacturing. Moreover, Ecoalily, unlike many other skin care products, is not a mass-produced item, instead, it is handmade and each batch is tested for the finest quality that meets highest standards. The totality of the idea is to keep up to the emerging demands of the market. It is an innovation that can step out from the rest of chemically-based skincare products that secretly harm skin. With thorough and meticulous studies to be furthered, the essence of this whole thing will be of a great significance to cater the market. Because who would have thought of a trash holds a magic for a glower you? See the transformation, from clogs to richness… of skin!
