This Local Cooling Spray Will Help You Beat the Heat Anytime of the Year

Jul 13, 2022 0 comments


As we all know by now, winter, spring, summer, and fall do not happen here in our country (unfortunately) and instead, what we have is the wet season and the dry season. Whichever season it may be, it sometimes can get really intense. For example, the dry season can get really, really hot, dry, and sticky when temperatures reach almost feverish levels.

If you happen to be one of those people who have a hard time adjusting to the heat of the sun, a young local entrepreneur may have exactly what you need in the form of a cooling spray. 


Have you ever heard of a cooling spray before? If this is your first time hearing about it, let us tell you all about a local cooling spray inspired by similar products found in Japan. It is none other than KHOOLIE!

How to Beat the Heat: Use a Cooling Spray


Esador is the brand started by Elijah Salvador that launched its product, KHOOLIE, just last April at the peak of summer. In an interview with us here at Metroscene Mag, Elijah narrates how KHOOLIE came to be. 

The Philippine heat was a consistent issue we dealt with everyday, which was most prominent in the peak of summer in hot college classrooms,” he says.

He found temporary relief thanks to cooling sprays and wipes his friends brought home from Japan as pasalubong. The reason they were a temporary relief, however, is the fact that they’re summer-only products in Japan, which means that they are not always available all year. 


This particular dilemma gave Elijah the idea to bring the product to the Philippines and tailor it so that it will suit the warmer climate that we have in this country. 


From Japan to the Philippines


Given the differences in the weather and climate between Japan and the Philippine, how exactly did Elijah make sure that his version of the cooling spray is perfect for the local environment?


We collaborated with local manufacturers with the research know-how of formulations appropriate for the Philippine climate,” Elijah explains, adding that he and his team began collaborating with manufacturers after graduating from college in 2019. He and his team made sure to try multiple samples so that he can select the best formula to offer to the market.

The final product, KHOOLIE, gives you an instantly refreshing feeling with just one spritz. Don’t worry if it feels tingly at first. It’s all normal and, once it settles, the sensation actually feels pretty great especially when a gust of wind blows by. 


Each spray lasts for around 30 minutes to an hour but if you think this is not enough, you can always spray once more. You are also very free to use it anytime you wish. You can spray it on yourself after a long day’s commute, while walking under the sun, or after a few sticky hours in the gym. 


Staying Cool While Helping the Warming Planet

 

Warm days keep getting warmer and warmer the past couple of years and we all know we have global warming to blame for making our planet hotter and hotter. How does KHOOLIE help our warming planet even as it strives to keep its users cool? 
 
Elijah points out during our interview that KHOOLIE comes in eco-friendly packaging, such as honeycomb wrappers and compostable mailers that you can actually melt. 
 
The KHOOLIE bottles, however, are still made from plastic as it is the more convenient option for on-the-go people, but the young entrepreneur promises that he and his team are looking for alternatives. In fact, it is his dream to make the KHOOLIE bottle eco-friendly. 
 
So what else does Elijah dream of aside from eco-friendly bottles for his cooling spray? He’s also dreaming of expanding his product line so that it will include a facial mist that will help you beat the heat. 
 
We don’t know about you, but that is something we here at Metroscene Mag will keep an eye out for!
