Carina Tissue - We Care, We Love



Everyone uses tissue everyday. Introducing, my top pick of tissue - Carina, which was established in 2009 as Malaysia's first tissue manufacturer to fulfill the tropical country's demands. The development of Carina tissues which utilizes only 100% virgin pulp and 100% natural pure cotton enables Carina to provide convenience to people while maintaining the purest standards of quality.

One best thing I like about Carina is it's totally environmentally friendly! As it is soluble in water, protecting not only you but also the environment. It is the best choice for skin due to its zero percent recycling component, making it mild and gentle on skin yet the strongest for usage. Besides, It is so easy to carry in my bag, so convenient!

From a facility in Malaysia's Klang Valley, Carina products are produced and distributed across Malaysia directly to consumers. Hence, despite the good quality of Carina products, they are also very affordable for everyone. Yo! You heard it right, Carina products are made in Malaysia!

Carina is invented for the people of Southeast Asia which is renowned for its picturesque islands, top-notch restaurants, delicious and spicy cuisine and diverse cultures. With the humid, subtropical climate of this region, Carina believes high-quality tissue is essential and useful as it is more convenient, hygienic, and family-friendly, as well as for personal use.

From small to larger packaging, Carina tissue comes in a range of sizes. I love it as it is ideal for use by both individuals and families. The modest packaging of Carina Handkerchief Tissue makes it perfect and necessary for daily use. Meanwhile, Carina Wallet Tissue has fashionable packaging that enables me to use it daily, on-the-go wallet.



Guess what? Carina is also available in other product series, from Wet Wipes, Facial Cotton, Cotton Bud, and Cotton Wool. The Carina Wet Wipes are mild and gentle, making it ideal to be used for cleaning and disinfecting in order to remove dirt or liquid from skin or surfaces. The Carina Cotton range is made from naturally durable, soft, absorbent and gentle cotton that is perfect for personal usage and baby care too. With the wide range of products from Carina, one brand, can fulfill my daily needs for a better and healthier lifestyle. To be precise, not only my own daily needs, but for my whole family, too!

I like their new designed with the theme "We Care, We Love"

  • Carina promotes hygiene awareness, create a healthy environment, and reduce pollution.

  • Carina care for our skin by providing 100% natural pure cotton that is skin-friendly.

  • Local production to boost economic recovery.

  • Specialized to fit the needs and wants of Southeast Asian people.

  • 4 series to meet market demand.

"We Care, We Love", expresses Carina's belief that producing high-quality products can influence and provide better care and love for our family. #CarinaCares


Carina's 4 main series:

  1. Beauty Care – Dry Tissue series is produced from 100% PURE VIRGIN PULP to ensure its hygiene, making it gentle and safe to use on skin, including sensitive skin areas and Cotton Series that made from 100% PURE COTTON which is suitable for beauty usage as it is hypoallergenic and would not cause skin irritation as our cotton is pure natural material.

  2. Toiletries Care – Bathroom tissues with 3-plies / ply that are more strength and soft to use.

Anlene Reunites with Malaysian-born Hollywood Superstar Michelle Yeoh for #MoveWithNoLimits Campaign

photo provided by Anlene

International movie icon and long-time Anlene supporter, Michelle Yeoh, is back with an Anlene campaign after over a decade. Yeoh is set to take up her role as a brand ambassador for Anlene’s #MoveWithNoLimits campaign, to encourage more Malaysians to overcome both physical and mental limitations by staying active. The campaign also focuses on how each of us can make important contributions to our own lives and communities, even during the different stages of our lives.

Weak, sick, immobile, and depressed, are often the general perceptions of older people. The vicious cycle of these stereotypes is worsened by the elderly mindset of being incapable to achieve any life goals due to the preconceived ideas of aging, which equals becoming weaker and less productive. To battle this stereotype, Anlene invites Malaysians to join its #MoveWithNoLimits campaign, to learn about how we can move more with better flexibility and energy, and to be the best version of ourselves, even as we get older. 

As part of the campaign, Anlene will be activating nationwide roadshows to encourage Malaysians to be more mobile while taking care of their bone health.  These roadshows will also give the public an opportunity to undergo a FREE bone scan and muscle strength test worth RM150, and to ensure that we can continue to improve our overall mobility measure.  Find out the upcoming roadshows near you here: https://www.anlene.com/my/en/anlene-move-check.html

So get ready to start moving with flexibility, gear up for good mobility for years to come, and stay active with Anlene. For more information on Anlene’s product range, visit www.anlene.com/my. Alternatively, check out Anlene’s Facebook page, @AnleneMalaysia, and stay up to date with #MoveWithNoLimits.
