In addition to recognizing the excellence of Kion Cosmetics, this award is one of great importance, because it helps to expand the name of the brand, opening doors for new business in the international market,” says Urandir Fernandes de Oliveira, President of BKC, noting that the line has a wide variety of facial, body and hair products, with innovative technology that is effective in treating wrinkles, lightening, cleansing, hydration and measurement reduction.

Founded three years ago, the company has caught the notice of multinationals in the premium sector and has started to sell in the world’s key commercial centers, such as London, Dubai, New York and Beverly Hills. “Before we actually get started with large scale production, we begin to introduce Kion products at international fairs, and the level of acceptance has been so high, we were exporting before we got to commercialization in Brazil,” explains Luciano Didier, Director of Development of International Business.

The focus for this year is on Asian markets, such as China and Thailand, as well as expansion in the United States. In Brazil, the plan is to open some 60 kiosks and shops in the country’s main shopping centers. Products can also be purchased via e-commerce at kioncosmetics.com, in Portuguese, English, French and Spanish, or via telemarketing (+55 11 25770275).

The primary raw material used in Kion products is red Brazilian kimberlite clay, which is considered rare because it was formed more than 850 million years ago and has more than 130 cosmetic and pharmaceutical applications. Classified as the most powerful element for rejuvenation of the skin, this clay is extracted in Corguinho, Mato Grosso do Sul, in Brazil.

“The efficacy of the crystals and the mineralogical power of the clay has been proven by the Kosmoscience laboratory in Brazil, and Bureau Veritas in Canada,” explains executive director, Alan Oliveira.

Kion Cosmetics participates in the industry’s leading international fairs, such as In-Cosmetics, Cosmoprof and Expocosmética, among others. Specialized publications such as Glamour UK, Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue Russia and Cosmetics Design have already recognized the brand’s unique properties.

MoHAP provides innovative healthcare package for people with Down syndrome

FUJAIRAH, The Ministry of Health and Prevention, MoHAP, announced the launch of an innovative package of healthcare services for people with Down syndrome, including the establishment of a multidisciplinary clinic at the Fujairah Hospital.

The ministry also announced the establishment of an electronic health surveillance unit for people with Down syndrome, in line with the recommendations of the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American College of Medical Genetics.

The project involves effective communication between the different departments of multidisciplinary clinics, which includes all those involved in the care of children of Down syndrome, including a clinical genetic counsellor, paediatric cardiologist, ENT, hearing, speech therapy, ophthalmology, physiotherapy, and nursing, in addition to a social worker.

Dr. Youssif Al Serkal, Assistant Under-Secretary for the ministry’s hospitals sector, said, “This unique service is seen as a qualitative transformation in the healthcare approach, through the Down Syndrome Clinic, which provides high-quality control in a patient-friendly environment.” Al Serkel pointed to the inclusion of a special electronic unit for the treatment of patients with Down syndrome, which was provided at Fujairah Hospital, Al Qasimi Hospital for Women and Children, and the Saqr Hospital in Ras Al Khaimah.

The first stage of the project is currently operational, following the successful application to 15 children in the Paediatrics Department of the Fujairah Hospital, he said and added that the project would be expanded in the coming months to include more than 110 children.

Dr. Kalthoum Al Baloushi, Director of MoHAP’s Hospitals Administration, said, “The project is divided into two phases, the first phase (from birth to 3 years, and 4 to 12 years, while the second phase is for adults with Down syndrome).”

“This project has contributed to early monitoring and thus rapid diagnosis, accompanying sub-symptoms, as well as a rapid screening of major Down syndrome-related diseases, including congenital heart defects found in nearly one-third of children with the disease,” she added.

The time allocated for each case was increased to 90 minutes with a paediatrician, in addition to preparing for a meeting with the social worker and the specialised nursing team, she noted.

With the first visit, the number of subsequent visits, specialised consultations, and laboratory and radiological examinations are determined to ensure that all procedures associated with appropriate health supervision for such children are completed.
