Two weeks ago, I was invited to the launch of this new skin care brand. The brand was never divulged in the email and even though I wanted to inquire, I just decided to find out about it right on the spot-a little surprise is good once in a while. All I knew was it's one of Malaysia's best- selling drugstore skincare brands and it utilizes the power of Bird's Nest. What got me ultra curious was the line that mentioned Bird's Nest: It's one of my super favorite Chinese delicacies, but I am completely unaware that it's being used in skin care products already!
The brand is called Nutox Oxyfusion, a pioneering brand of Bird's Nest products for the skin. Incidentally, this is Nutox Oxyfusion's first international expansion and they chose the Philippines as their second market. The brand includes a complete range of day to night products that will help restore skin vitality, strength, glow, and delay the process of aging.

Apart from Hot and Sour soup, one of my favorite Chinese dishes is Bird's Nest soup. I really like its thick, gooey texture and light, filling taste-I like it best if it's filled with egg drops and quail eggs! Bird's Nest may seem like a delish ingredient, but guess what? It's saliva-Bird saliva, to be specific. In ancient China, (where the early usage of Bird's Nest is recorded) it was originally called Swallow's Nest as it was harvested from Swallows, and highly treasured for its healing and restorative properties-the ancient Chinese even used it as cough syrup to treat phlegm and other lung- related diseases. Bird's Nest was such a rare, supreme, and costly delicacy that it was once exclusive to the royalties only.
Bird's Nest was found to be very high in protein, amino acids, antioxidants, components that are very beneficial to the skin. The Chinese University of Hong Kong has conducted a study on Bird's Nest and it was discovered that its water- soluble protein content contains Mitogenic Stimulation Factor and Epidermal Growth Factor that can enhance the rebirth of cells, reinforce the immune system, restore energy and stamina, boost heart functions, and distribute heat effectively throughout the body.*

Up to this day, Bird's Nest is still considered as a premium ingredient and beauty products that have it are quite steep. Nutox Oxyfusion believes that everyone has the right to experience Mother Nature's healing powers, therefore they've strived to make Bird's Nest products affordable and accessible to all.
The event was also graced by Monique Teruelle, T.V. Host and Commercial Model, and currently Nutox Oxyfusion Philippines' ambassador.
