The Company initially began as a supplier of spa products (aromatherapy and skincare) to top spas in the country and is the exclusive Philippine distributor of several leading luxury spa brands including Aromatherapy Associates, Biodroga and Algotherm. In addition, the Company offers its own Filipino inspired, locally made, aromatherapy line under the Amu’in brand name. The brand has a strong corporate social responsibility as it supports the lemongrass essential-oil producing community of Mambugsay, Negros. Amu’in uses local lemongrass essential oil in its products and donates a percentage of its sales to the Mambugsay community. In 2008 the Company expanded its portfolio to include hotel guest amenities and now offers both branded and custom-ized (generic) products. For branded products the Company has partnered with Guest Supply Asia, to provide such brands as Bvlgari, Salvatore Ferragamo, Acqua Di Parma, Acca Kappa and Caswell Massey that will surely provide a positive experience for hotel guests. In addition, the Company offers its own branded guest amenities, made in the Philippines, under the brand names Amu’in, Liz Prescott, Island Breeze, Jardin and Natur. For customised products the Company is able to work with the customer in creating their amenity brand concept including packaging, formulation and fragrance and then after final approval of pre-production samples offers manufacturing either in China or the Philip-pines. Additional guest room items offered include slippers and laundry bags, irons and ironing centres, kettles, hair dryers, minibars and safes. The latter electrical items are sold through a relationship with Corby of Windsor. In 1929, John Corby designed a non-electrical, horizontal trouser press in a room above a garage in Windsor, UK. Today the company he founded continues to service the world’s top hotels including Hilton, Marriott and Intercontinental. The Company is the exclusive Philippines distributor of EcoknitTM Towels.
