During the pandemic, self-care has become even more important with patients increasingly taking control of their own health. When common ailments such as sore throat, allergies, or diarrhea occur, it is useful to have over-the-counter products within reach to save on time, worry, and ultimately provide more avenues to take care of oneself.
In line with its mission to make care available for all, Johnson & Johnson (Philippines), Inc. launches its e-Pharmacy on Lazada and Shopee to make essential healthcare products for sore throat, smoking cessation, and allergy more accessible to every Filipino.
“We want to provide consumers with the best options for taking care of their health, in the best possible way considering the limitations posed by the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Karlo Patron, marketing head of the Self Care Franchise at Johnson & Johnson (Philippines), Inc. “Right now, it’s through e-commerce platforms, such as Lazada and Shopee, where the demand for quality medicines is also high.”
He added: “Most common illnesses can be managed from home. However, they must be acted upon immediately to prevent minor symptoms from progressing to more troubling health concerns. The e-Pharmacy will offer a wide range of self-care products to stop common illnesses in their tracks. Special promos or discounts will be up for grabs all throughout the year to make preparing for minor ailments easier on the wallet, too.”
“With the e-Pharmacy, consumers can conveniently stock up on year-round, self-care essentials with just a few clicks. At the same time, they can discover new products to include in their self-care kit or medicine cabinet to help them actively manage common illnesses when they occur.”
The e-Pharmacy will be home to some of the healthcare giant’s most trusted self-care brands, including Hexetidine (Bactidol®) for sore throat, Nicotine Polacrilex (Nicorette®) to help manage smoking cravings and withdrawal symptoms, and Cetirizine HCl (Benadryl®) for management of allergy symptoms. Also available are Loperamide (ImodiumTM) for diarrhea relief, Paracetamol (Tylenol®) for pain management and fever reduction, and Tetrahydrozoline HCl (Visine®) for dry or irritated eyes.
