Last year, I had a terrible sore throat which I wasn’t able to do my job for days. Did you know that voice plays an integral part in your everyday activities? However, it is inevitable that your lifestyle could take its toll on your voice, like when you get a sore throat.
Sore throat is normally caused by viruses or bacteria. That’s why sometimes beyond just irritation or itchiness, you feel pain in swallowing and swelling.
Several other things can cause sore throat. In a tropical country like the Philippines, there are different factors that can take a toll on your system. Changes in temperature and weather can affect your throat. Other factors of sore throat are also airborne such as outdoor pollution, allergens in the air, smoking cigarettes, and second-hand smoking. Excessive and forceful usage of your voice can also cause muscle strain.
One of my neighbors suggested to me Kamillosan M Spray. It is a clinically proven all-natural sore throat spray solution. When I tried it, it relieved me from irritating sore throat.
There are 8 ingredients (Chamomile extract, Methyl salicylate, Peppermint oil, Sage oil, Anise oil, dwarf pine needle oil, Bergamot oil, Cineol) – work together in fighting and treating sore throat. Its main ingredient, Chamomile, acts as an anti-inflammatory agent to reduce pain, swelling, and redness. It also has anti-bacterial effects of essential oils such as Peppermint, Sage, and Bergamot, Kamillosan M is highly suited for sore throat relief.
When I sprayed it into my mouth, it has minty fresh sweet aftertaste. Kamillosan M Spray is from A. Menarini Philippines, which belongs to one of the largest Italian biopharmaecutical groups, Menarini.
They recently launched it last April 21 at Discovery Primea as Pop Princess Sarah Geronimo endorsed Kamillosan.
During the event, A. Menarini Philippines’ General Manager, Ninia Torres did a brief introduction about the said product. This was followed by an overview on sore throat by Dra. Clarissa Fortuna, supported by a product discussion from the brand’s medical manager, Dr. Gabby Santos.
But the voice that got everyone speaking up was Kamillosan’s newest endorser – Sarah Geronimo. She charmed everyone in her grand entrance as she powerfully sang and captured hearts, as she always does. Sarah also shared her own singing journey which highlighted how she learned to be an inspiration and motivation to others by power of voice and positivity – making her the perfect fit for Kamillosan’s Speak Up campaign.
“The essence of our campaign is to really encourage people to speak up with the help of Kamillosan. Just like Sarah, we hope to inspire people to pursue their passion without any hindrance along the way, especially sore throat,” shared Patty Nuqui, Marketing Director of Kamillosan.
“We are truly proud and delighted to have this opportunity to not just introduce a product we support and believe in, but to have Kamillosan take the higher ground and mean more to people than just a product for sore throat,” A. Menarini Philippines’ General Manager, Ninia Torres, added.
