POND'S Launches World's First AI-Powered Skin Diagnostic Chatbot

7/19/2019 09:02:00 am 3 Comments
New Skin Advisor Live (SAL) bot integrates rich clinical research data with diagnosis technology to take the confusion out of diagnosing common skincare concerns



SINGAPORE - Media OutReach - 18 July 2019 - Beauty brand POND'S today announced it is launching the world's first AI-powered skin diagnostic chatbot which, using a combination of advanced AI and skin diagnosis technology, will help consumers combat skincare concerns across four main areas -- uneven skin tone, spots, pimples and wrinkles. 

The Skin Advisor Live bot, named 'SAL', embraces Google's highly superior neuro-linguistic programming and BrighTex BioPhotonics's (BTBP) DeepTag skin diagnosis technology to offer consumers advanced skin diagnoses through an intuitive and fun chat.

BTBP's DeepTag technology - a patented skin map technology from Silicon Valley -- and clinical research data from The POND'S Institute will be utilized to deliver skin diagnoses of unparalleled accuracy and of a higher consistency match rate compared to dermatologists.

Using their highly customized diagnosis from SAL, combined with product recommendations backed by years of in-depth research by POND'S, consumers are able to select a reliable personal skincare product and regime recommendation to help meet their particular skincare needs. 

SAL is available in Indonesia via messenging app, LINE, and Argentina, Columbia, United Arab Emirates and South Africa via Facebook Messenger.

"POND'S has always been known for providing consumers with expert skincare and making beauty more accessible," says Rohit Bhasin, Global Brand Vice President, POND'S, Unilever. "We recognise how confusing and overwhelming it can be for anyone to pick the right skincare products when there are so many choices.

"We want to use technology to solve this problem, by helping consumers gain a deeper understanding of their skin type and matching them with the most effective products. With SAL, consumers can build and optimise their skincare regime -- via popular social messaging apps -- through this science-based, data-led skin diagnostic tool." 


How is skin diagnosed?  

Consumers upload a selfie, complete a short quiz and their customized results will be ready in under a minute.   


How does SAL diagnose skin?  

Skin will be analyzed by BTBP DeepTag's advanced AI technology and results will be classified across four indicators of skin health: uneven skin tone, spots, pimples and wrinkles.  

"We believe that skincare should be built upon a deep knowledge and understanding of each individual's skin," says Judy Mao, Research and Development director for POND'S's Global Design, "This is why we worked with BTBP to create SAL to help consumers diagnose their skin easily. SAL is a game-changer when it comes to skin diagnoses and our product recommendation tool is backed by years of consumer research and product trials. The POND'S Institute will continue to explore innovative ways to help consumers improve their skin health."

Speaking on behalf of BrighTex BioPhotonics, Raj Chhibber, CEO says, "We are delighted to collaborate closely with POND'S to bring a smarter skincare regime to consumers around the world bringing a new level of accuracy on the skin diagnostic results, resulting in a more accurate skincare products and regime recommendation."

What To Do When Your Clothes Smell Musty After Washing

7/18/2019 09:19:00 pm 1 Comments
Few things are as frustrating as musty, damp smelling clothes which is why it is important to know the right steps to take to prevent and eliminate the musty smell after washing.

This can happen if you leave them in the washing machine for too long after a cycle, or if the house is damp, or drying them too slowly. Wet clothes are extremely susceptible to aromas



Potential Causes Of Musty Smelling Clothes

There are several reasons why your clothes may end up smelling musty. An awareness of what these reasons are can help to prevent it from happening.


Chemical Detergents

Most mainstream detergents are full of chemicals. While these may smell fantastic when you open the bottle, this doesn’t mean you’ll be getting the same smell on your freshly washed clothes.

In fact, the chemicals in your chosen detergent will help the buildup of biofilms in your washing machine. These are small bacteria which grow and interfere with the natural washing process. The bacteria are similar to those that cause mold, hence the musty smell on your clothes.

You can eliminate this by choosing a natural fabric care solution. Make sure it has no harsh chemicals and you’ll be making the right steps.


Clean Your Machine

As mentioned above, your machine can develop a lining of bacteria, known as biofilm. This will reduce its ability to clean clothes and encourage the musty smell.

You may not think about cleaning the washing machine but it’s a good idea to do the following periodically:
  • Add 2 cups of white vinegar to your detergent tray
  • Turn on the machine, the rinse setting should suffice
  • Now add ½ cup bleach into the detergent tray
  • Run the machine again on the rinse cycle.
  • Remove the detergent tray and scrub it in the sink, if possible.
  • To finish run one more rinse cycle with no additives.



Take Your Clothes Out Quicker

One of the most common issues is leaving the clothes in the machine long after the wash cycle has finished. This allows the damp aroma to settle on the clothes because they are damp and in a confined environment.

It is also important to note that the hotter the water temperature the quicker the musty smell will appear.

You’ll need to take the clothes out as soon as possible after the machine has finished, using the delayed start may help.


The Right Amount Of Detergent

It is possible that you’re not using enough, or are using too much detergent. You may even be using the wrong detergent, although switching to a natural one as mentioned above will certainly help.

Not putting enough detergent in will prevent your clothes from being cleaned properly. This will effectively leave dirt on your clothes, even if it’s not visible to the human eye, making the clothes smell.

Alternatively too much detergent means that the machine will be unable to rinse your clothes properly, this leaves detergent on the clothes which creates the musty aroma.

Check how much detergent you should be using and use the right amount!


Things to Know Before Signing Your Home Loan

7/18/2019 04:26:00 pm 1 Comments
For most people, getting a home loan Singapore to purchase your house is a serious business. It is a long-term commitment which will probably eat into your monthly salary for the next 20-30 years. That is why it is so important to go through all the fine print of your home loan contract clearly before signing anything. Just as you would not buy or rent a property without first inspecting the property, you should also make sure you fully understand all the precise details of your home loan no matter how tedious or boring it is. To avoid being stuck in a financial agreement that you are not contented with, take note of these 6 items in your home loan contract that you need to fully consider and understand before signing.




1. Home loan lock-in period

The lock-in period refers to the fixed number of years during which you are obliged to maintain the mortgage with the same bank. If you break the lock-in before the period specified in the contract ends, you will be financially penalized. A fixed rate mortgage will almost certainly come with a lock-in clause that has a fixed interest rate, which will not change for the duration of the lock-in period. This can be helpful, giving you the stability of a fixed monthly repayment. Meanwhile, floating rate mortgages do not usually come with a lock-in, but you should still check to be sure. Getting a loan without a lock-in period can be beneficial, as it gives you the flexibility of changing your home loan package if you find a cheaper one elsewhere.


2. Home loan reference rate
Most of us will take note of the interest rate on our home loan, but another thing that you should be aware of is the reference rate. This is the rate of which a particular loan is priced. Reference rates will differ from bank to bank and package to package. Most of the time, banks use either a fixed or floating rate based on the Singapore Interbank Offer Rate (SIBOR), the Swap Offer Rate (SOR) or the banks’ own internal rates. Recently, some banks have even started using their fixed deposit rate as their reference rate.


3. Early redemption of home loan
This refers to the partial or full repayment of the home loan earlier than specified in the loan contract. Nobody likes being in debt, so in the event of a bonus or unexpected windfall, you may want to ensure that you have the flexibility to pay down your outstanding loan and reduce your total interest costs over time. The early redemption period usually covers up to the end of the loan term, or more generally, until the end of the lock-in period. Some banks will require that a minimum loan amount be maintained, while others will allow you to repay a certain percentage of the loan amount early. Take note that penalties will be incurred when you try to repay the loan earlier than permitted under the terms of the contract, ranging from 0.75% to 2% of the loan amount repaid.


4. Home loan interest reset date
When you sign up for a home loan, the reference rate related to your loan may come with an interest reset date. This mostly applies to home loan packages that are attached to SOR or SIBOR. If you have such packages, keep in mind that the bank may only allow you to redeem your loan on a specific date. Redeeming the loan on any other date may incur a penalty, ranging from 0.5% to 2% of the loan amount redeemed.


5. Home loan repricing or refinancing fees
Repricing is the process of negotiating a lower interest on your current home loan package with your existing bank once the lock-in period has expired. Refinancing is basically the same thing, except that you will be replacing your current loan package with a new one from a different bank. Most banks will charge a refinancing administrative fee to do this. It is suggested to renegotiate your home loan every few years to save on your interest. If you decide to stay with the same bank, be sure to check if repricing fees can be waived on the loan.


6. Clawback of subsidies
To encourage potential customers to take up their home loans, some banks may offer various subsidies like free fire insurance premiums, or subsidies for legal fees and valuation fees. However, you should be aware that these freebies usually come with a clawback period of about 2-3 years. This means that if you decide to cancel your loan or refinance before the period within which you are allowed to do so, the bank may decide to clawback their offered subsidies, and you will need to refund the initial amount in full.
