As we gradually shift into the “new normal,” some of us are probably looking to replenish (or stock up on) our family’s self-care essentials, or treat ourselves to a little retail therapy. (The lockdown was pretty stressful, don’t you agree?) Hence, the Lazada 6.6 sale couldn’t have been scheduled at a more perfect time.
To broaden its roster of local products and businesses on the platform, Lazada has partnered with DTI Bureau of Domestic Trade Promotion, where more than 400 MSMEs (micro, small, and medium enterprises) under DTI Go Lokal and DTI Virtual Trade Fair were onboarded.
According to Carlos Barrera, Lazada Philippines’ Chief Operating Officer, they have continued to onboard more brands and sellers since the start of the ECQ to help them get started on their e-commerce journey. “We want to keep on supporting our sellers, especially our local SMEs, recover from the effects of COVID-19 through our Bounce Back Sale,” he says.
Here are homegrown brands you might want to add to your cart:
For the new mommies and daddies
Cotton Stuff has a wide range of clothing sets for newborn babies and toddlers made from 100% cotton fabric. For parents in search of affordable yet quality diapers, there’s the in-demand Filipino diaper brand EQ baby diapers. Another proudly Pinoy brand that promises to give you the best bang for your buck is Akeeva, which has playpens, car seats, and high chairs for your baby.
Parents can also find a variety of products made with all-natural organic ingredients, ranging from products like bottle washes, liquid detergents, oral sets, hand soaps, and many more. Parents can get a hold of these from our Cradle, Cycles, Nature to Nurture, and Tiny Buds.
For the beauty fanatics
The women in the family need to look their best during virtual meetings. For those looking for shades that complement morena skinned, Lazada has homegrown brands BLK, Careline, Colourette, Ever Bilena, Issy & Co, Sunnies Face, Vice Cosmetics, Happy Skin, and Albert Kurniawan’s Teviant.
For the sneakerheads
If you’re reeling from Michael Jordan’s The Last Dance docuseries and itching to add something to your sneaker collection, check out ShoePer Store and KW Online Shop. Both emerging brands carry fresh designs at affordable price tags.
For the fashion-forward
Whether you’re still on an WFH setup or already going to the office, it would help to now skip the pambahay and ease into the new normal by wearing nicer clothes. Inspi has some pretty cool printed tees, while Plus Size Boutique has trendy styles for the more full-figures folks.
