Kotex Modern Day Maria Clara—A Woman of No Compromise

Gone are the traditional stay-at-home and too-safe fashion sense—these were the traits of the typical Maria Clara character from Jose Rizal’s famous novel Noli Me Tangere (Touch Me Not) from which the term Maria Clara stemmed from. Women have evolved to become more dynamic without compromising their passion since the olden Maria Clara days and so does the pad we use. Kotex recently introduced the country’s first and only pad with guards that rise upon fluid contact to provide ultimate leakage protection. It’s truly great news for all women out there, so when Purple Plum Fairy was invited to witness this celebration, we immediately said yes.

“It has become evident nowadays as women are more outspoken and inquisitive. We are firmer with our own convictions and we don’t want our passions to be compromised,” says Rose Sumera, Marketing Manager of Kimberly-Clark Philippines, makers of Kotex.

During the said product launch held at the Prive Luxury Club in The Fort, Kotex introduced five lovely women as Kotex brand ambassadors namely blogger extraordinaire/actress Saab Magalona, fashion designer/musician Kate Torralba, Entrepreneur/Socialite Kimbery Lao, and courtside reporters and Magic 89.9 radio jocks/host Jessica Mendoza and Andi Manzano.

 “These women were chosen to be our brand ambassadors because of their achievements in their respective fields. They’re all career-driven, active and savvy in various aspects,” shares Sumera. They are examples of modern women because they do not compromise their freedom to excel in their fields.

“60 percent of women still find it hard to focus and concentrate on their daily tasks during their menstrual cycle because of fear of leakage that may happen at any given time, resulting to embarrassing situations,” explains Sumera

Kotex understands this predicament and what we all women go through; so it has worked and researched to ensure women regain their social lifestyle, fashion bravura and confidence that expresses femininity. “Kotex believes that today’s modern Maria Clara are basically progressive women and they deserve more elegant solution to tackle leakage problems so they introduced the latest innovation with Kotex with ProActive Guards,” adds Sumera.

 Kotex ProActive guards is a revolutionary product to gently cradle a woman’s body for a close fit, forming protective barriers to provide ultimate leakage protection. The pad also comes with Rapid Absorb Funnels that are specifically designed to absorb fluid during heavy or sudden flow, locking the liquid away securely and preventing leakage.

Kotex is committed to helping women make informed choices everyday. Their innovations come from their desire to not only satisfy the needs of today’s women but also to inspire them with new ways on how to protect and care for their bodies. To learn more about the new Kotex products, visit J
