Is your skin getting its RDA?
Sometimes we use more chemical ingredients than our skin actually needs. That’s why Sanex Zero% contains only what your skin needs and nothing more. And with its eco pack it’s better for the environment too.
Why it matters
Consumers have become more conscious about their health and what exactly they are putting into their bodies and in what quantities. Will we see more beauty brands balancing essential ingredients for what our body needs, like recommended daily amounts that we have for vitamins and nutrients?
The Red Cross in Singapore and more than 12,000 professionally trained people who can give first aid now use the iPhone app “Rapid Rescue”. In case of an emergency, users can activate the app and an alarm is sent to first aid givers within a range of 2km. Directions on a map are also provided.
An estimated 5,000 people with asthma end up in hospital each day. A number of those hospital visits could be avoided; as many as 75% of patients are using their inhalers improperly.
Cambridge Consultants developed the T-Haler, a device designed to help asthma suffers better monitor their use of their inhaler. Fitted with Wi-Fi and sensors, the T-Haler feeds back real-time usage data. The design firm claims that, with just three minutes of training with the T-Haler, proper use of inhalers skyrockets from 20% to 60%.
The prototype also uses gamification to encourage proper use of the tool.
