Province of Siquijor (15 October) -- The Department of Science and Technology (DOST) here, in cooperation with the Department of Trade & Industry (DTI) sponsored a Training on Personal Care Products Formulation" (shampoo making, liquid hand wash, cream, lotion, & other products) on October 8-9, 2009 at Dapdap Sunset Grill, Pangi, Siquijor.

According to the report of the DOST Provincial Director, Engr. Mario E. de la Peņa, the training was aimed at providing technical knowhow, especially to women's group, on the production/formulation of personal care products.

"The activity was ideal for women and even new graduates in the province to start up entrepreneurial activity in order to generate income and contribute to the economic upliftment and tourism activities of the province," de la Peņa said.

The trainers, he said, were from the Industrial Technology Development Institute (ITDI) of the Department of Science and Technology in Manila. They taught the participants on how to formulate transparent and pearlized shampoo, liquid hand wash, cream and lotion. The group was able to perform hands-on exercises and able to bring with them five kinds of finished products.

The participants came from women's associations like LIWOMCO, SWABE, SSC, Provincial and Municipal tourism office, DTI, DOLE, TESDA who are presently assisting women's group in the province. "The group decided to have another activity next year, a sort of technology upgrading to include bath soap making," de la Peņa added.

"All these happened in a span of just a few days from sourcing of experts to the conduct of actual training. The drive, capability and capacity, resources and the ingenuity of the sponsoring agencies spell the initial success of this very significant endeavor," he said while giving the assurance that the partnership of these agencies continues and the experts from DOST-ITDI are more than willing to be of further service for the full satisfaction of the womens' group in the province.
