Mamonde’s brand ambassador and top Korean actress Park Shin Hye was here in Malaysia to officiate the launch of the Mamonde Red Energy Recovery Serum at Watsons stores nationwide.
The Red Energy Recovery Serum is a premium product by Mamonde that addresses skin aging as well as helps to recover and revitalise exhausted skin, bringing it back to its optimal condition. Made up of two key ingredients, pomegranate and Blossoming Energy, the serum creates smooth and supple skin that glows from within by strengthening the skin’s moisture barrier and promoting the skin’s turnover cycle.
The Blossoming Energy, derived from a 28-year study of flowers is Mamonde’s latest innovation. It is a special active ingredient that helps to boost skin’s energy. Through the observation of flowers throughout their lifecycle; inclusive of changes in colour and temperature, Mamonde has discovered a unique component that helps flowers to bloom and survive longer than its usual lifespan. This component was extracted, tested on skin and has since been developed to become the core ingredient for the Red Energy Recovery Serum, bringing forth properties that boosts skin’s energy and return it to its healthiest state. Now launched at selected Watsons stores, the Red Energy Recovery Serum is available in 30ml for RM130. It is also available on Watsons’ online website.
The launch of the Red Energy Recovery Serum into Watsons stores also signifies the official partnership that is being established between Mamonde Malaysia and Watsons Malaysia. “Mamonde Malaysia has garnered a substantial number of loyal customers and fans over the last three years since its launch through the many innovative products that we’ve introduced. The brand is now moving to the next phase which is to widen its reach to more customers through our partnership with Watsons. This new partnership will also vastly increase Mamonde’s presence in the marketplace,” said Margaret Chin, Country Manager of Amorepacific Malaysia.
Mamonde Malaysia has expanded their sales channels to over 50 Watsons Malaysia stores nationwide. The launch of Mamonde into Watsons stores nationwide is in line with Amorepacific’s global partnership with A.S Watsons Group to widen its distribution platform for both online and offline.
“We are delighted to have Mamonde’s ambassador, Park Shin Hye for an exclusive meet and greet with Watsons shoppers in-line with Mamonde’s launch of the new Red Energy Recovery Serum. At Watsons we continuously work with our partners to offer innovative and exciting products which serves their needs. Mamonde Red Energy Recovery Serum is dermatologist-tested making it suitable for all our Watsons shoppers with different skin types.” said Caryn Loh, Managing Director of Watsons Malaysia.

I am a super fans of Himalaya Salt Candy, not only just me - my friends, my family love to eat too. But there are news about fake Himalaya Salt Candy spreading in Malaysia, OMG! What an unethical move to manufacture fake product. So, I'm here to share with you all how to identify the real and fake Himalaya Salt Candy here.
Nicko Jeep Manufacture Sdn Bhd (Nicko Jeep) has recently been notified on counterfeit Himalaya Salt Sports Candy (Himalaya Salt Extra Cool Mint Candy - Lemon Flavour) products being sold at unauthorised sales channels. We take this issue very seriously as counterfeiting products are not only illegal but may pose health risks to consumers due to dubious ingredients used in manufacturing the candies.

Nicko Jeep’s manufacturing facility that manufactures the Himalaya Salt Sports Candy is also certified by HACCP, GMP and MESTI while the products are HALAL certified by JAKIM. However, these counterfeit candies are not certified and are therefore not safe for consumption.

We’ve reported this to the Ministry of Domestic Trade, Co-operatives and Consumerism and we hope stern action will be taken against these perpetrators. In the meantime, we strongly suggest that customers only purchase our Himalaya Salt Sports Candy from reputable retailers and if in doubt, please contact us at or

We are also taking necessary steps to educate consumers in identifying genuine products from counterfeit through our facebook page and our official website 
From among them are:
Counterfeit packaging uses a slightly different font at the bottom in describing the functions of the candy i.e ‘Increase Hydration, Throat Soothing, Fresh Breath’ and the words ‘Sports Candy’ are slightly faded. While on the back of the pack, the word ‘Manufacturer In Malaysia By’ is used instead of ‘Manufacture In Malaysia By’.

Another glaring difference between the genuine pack and counterfeit is the spacing between Delfi Marketing Sdn. Bhd. and the mailing address.

When buying the Himalaya Salt Sports Candy also be aware of product with the Lot No 19C02 with the expiry date 15/03/2021. This is a counterfeit product.

We would like to also assure our customers that we are taking measures to eradicate counterfeit Himalaya Salt Sports Candy by working with retailers and relevant authorities.
