(GSK) mission is to help people do more, feel better and live longer. In line
with this mission, GSK’s Consumer Healthcare division and Physiogel, its
flagship skin health brand, aims to help Filipinas and all women across Asia,
to be free from dry and sensitive skin. Physiogel believes in freeing the
strength in sensitivity.
good skin days, women are naturally more confident presenting their best face
to the world. When women love how their
skin looks and feels, they want to go out and enjoy themselves, meeting people, making connections, and
taking on the world.
the opposite holds true, too. When they experience bad skin days with
their skin feeling 'dry, red and itchy', they are uncomfortable and easily
irritated. When their confidence dips,
women feel more vulnerable.
from the GSK Skin Health Asia Pacific Consumer Report 2014 shows that more than
50% of women across Asia experience sensitive face and body skin in the past 12
months. One out of two women will not visit a skincare professional for their
skin condition. The same study shows that 71% and 61% of Filipinas have
sensitive face and body skin, respectively.
NEW PHYSIOGEL’S FREE IN MY SKIN MOVEMENT
is a source of strength for women, not a weakness to be hidden away. This
powerful consumer insight compels Physiogel to passionately advocate the
#FreeInMySkin Movement in 2015. The Movement also coincides with the debut of
the NEW Physiogel Daily Moisture Therapy line,” reveals Justin Alejandro
Lladoc, GSK Skin Health Senior Product Manager.
says Physiogel’s #FreeInMySkin Movement starts with self discovery. Physiogel
aims to help women to be more aware of themselves so they can uncover their
full potential. It challenges Filipinas to look past their skin insecurities in
the hope of helping them fulfill dreams they have always wanted to achieve.
this journey to self discovery starts with taking the Freedom List Challenge,
Physiogel’s suggested guide in the form of a lifestyle online quiz that is a
representation of what women can achieve when freed from dry and sensitive
Freedom List Challenge starts with a 5-question quiz:

2.Your potential is limitless, so what’s your
3.How do you like to show off your beautiful,
strong sensitive skin?

5.What is your dream holiday?
result of the quiz provides a glimpse to one’s personality that ranges from being
a savvy collaborator, inspiring innovator, charismatic motivator and elegant
sophisticate - revealing worthwhile hints that may help them embrace and live
life to the fullest.
#FreeInMySkin Movement, now made more exciting by new additions with the
introduction of the #FreeInMySkin website and Freedom List Challenge, is more
relevant than ever because it is able to reach many Filipinas digitally across
the nation. And because of its continuous success, from its conception in 2014,
it has caught the attention of Mercury Drug. They too were encouraged to free
many more Filipinas from dry, sensitive skin by making Physiogel products
available across the country.
the end of 2016, with its continued resonance with consumers, the Movement is
expected to have rolled out to the rest of Asian markets,” Lladoc shares.

sensitive skin. Patti remains to be the brand’s advocate as she embodies the

dry and sensitive skin.
shares that she used to be more conscious and watchful of what others would
think about her skin. “That was sad. I would have liked to be out and about and
go for more work, but a little thought would always be at the back of my mind
wondering if my skin would be an issue or a hindrance. I was not free to do
what I wanted to do!” she now says.
following list is Patti’s answers to the quiz of the Freedom List Challenge:
Long run with music
Raising my family
Relaxing on the beach
Starring in my own YouTube channel
Ocean excursion cruising to remote islands
