Filipinos suffer from five common skin conditions: sensitivity or being prone to having pimples and acne; dark spots; oiliness; dry skin that lacks radiance; and hyperpigmentation.
Unfortunately, most of the soaps in the market tend to focus on skin lightening, seemingly forgetting to address the other skin problems of Filipinos—both men and women.
This is where Diwatang Maria comes in. The Filipino brand is the newest beauty bar soap in the country which promises to address the aforementioned common skin concerns.
There are three variants—Diwatang Maria Makiling, Diwatang Maria Sinukuan, and Diwatang Maria Cacao—all of which contain combinations of premium-grade organic ingredients.
“We combined premium quality organic ingredients that will not only lighten the skin but treat several skin issues,” said Concepcion Macalintal, President and CEO of Diwatang Maria.
Diwatang Maria uses virgin coconut oil as the soap base, which makes the skin truly supple to the touch.
Combining the power of kojic acid, papaya enzyme, and aloe vera guarantee impressive results in just a couple of weeks. Kojic Acid and papaya enzymes are known to effectively lighten skin, while helping control oiliness of the skin. The former is also known to improve the appearance of melasma and hyperpigmentation.
Those who have tried other soaps with kojic acid usually complain that it makes their skin itch. To address this, Macalintal added aloe vera which helped counter this concern, helping soothe or prevent itching of the skin.
Impressively, Diwatang Maria derives its signature scent from oranges’ essential oil.
For people whose skin reacts easily to dirt, dust, bacteria, and chemicals, the Diwatang Maria Sinukuan is ideal because it is infused with oatmeal and glutathione. It also has a delicious lavander scent, which has a calming effect.
On the other hand, the Diwatang Maria Cacao variant is perfect for people who want to maintain their morena complexion. This chocolate-scented soap will give your skin the moisture and radiance it needs with the skin enhancing and anti-aging benefits from oatmeal kernel, colloidal oatmeal, and shea butter.
Diwatang Maria products are paraben-free, and free of other harmful ingredients.
