(SPOT.ph) You know you've officially stepped into tita-hood when you have one of those strong-smelling menthol ointments in your everyday purse (and actually swear by them). Case in point: Katinko. We're pretty sure your mom and your titas know it very well—the popular green balm in a 10- or 30-gram tub that can relieve itchiness from insect bites and minor pains almost instantly. But did you know that it actually comes in different variants?
Apart from the familiar tubs we all know and love, your go-to pain remedy is also available as an Ointment Stick (P440/set of 12), Nasal Decongestant Inhaler (P360/set of six), Pain-Relieving Sports Spray (P1,400/set of 12), Oil Liniment (P370/10ml set of 12), and even Alcohol Sprays (P270/50ml set of six).

Fun fact: Katinko was Greenstone Pharmaceutical H.K. Inc.'s pioneer product which was founded in Hong Kong in 1974. In 1980, they introduced the now-quintessential balm to the Philippine market and in 2008, they expanded their production plant and laboratories to the Philippines, where they set up a Production Center and Laboratory in Anabu, Cavite, and an office in Quezon City which houses their marketing and support teams.
Today, you can shop Katinko in all leading drugstores nationwide and online through Lazada.
