All the best for the family

Parents always want the best for their family. This was highlighted during the recent launch of brands aden + anais and Seventh Generation. At the twin launch, guests learned more about caring for a baby and having eco-consciousness on home products.

Aden + anais is a global brand that thoughtfully cares for babies’ needs. In the Philippines, its main highlight is the swaddle blanket. Swaddling is a traditional practice of carefully wrapping a baby in a soft blanket, a method that provides a sense of safety and security for babies and is also a way to help babies sleep.

Meanwhile, Seventh Generation, established 30 years ago, is a brand that cares for both the current population and the generations ahead. Its products are derived from plants and other renewable agricultural, marine and forestry materials. The company believes in using only recycled materials to design the packaging.

Gretchen Choa-Uy, the official distributor of the two brands in the Philippines, shared that the brands’ wellness and hypoallergenic properties are perfect for her family. She said she brought the products to the Philippines to share their benefits to others.
