4 reasons why you should switch to coconut oil bath soap

By Camille Santiago Published Aug 17, 2023 12:00 pm

Bath soaps are often an overlooked essential for personal care. Some people choose one based on price, going for the cheapest option to save cash, while others prefer to stick with what they know. But we think the best way you can get the most out of your soap is to pick a soap with ingredients that will cleanse gently and effectively.

If you are skeptical about using soap bars because of the tight and dry feeling they can leave on the skin, then you should try using a natural soap bar with coconut oil.

Lucky for us, the Philippines is one of the greatest worldwide producers of coconut oil, therefore it is one of the most accessible and least expensive ingredients for beauty and personal care products.

Perla Pure, for instance, uses 100% coconut oil sourced from Quezon province. It is the latest innovation from Perla—yes, the brand that is known for its natural laundry soaps now has an all-natural soap for the body.

Still not convinced? Here, we list down the reasons why coconut oil bath soap is a great alternative to chemical-based soaps.

It protects your skin 

Bar soaps are formulated to keep our skin clean, but adding in a natural ingredient like coconut oil, will grant you even more benefits. 

High in saturated fat, coconut oil contains lauric acid, which has natural antimicrobial, antifungal, and antiviral properties that kill bacteria and other microbes. As a result, it can help prevent acne, exfoliate the skin, and remove dead skin cells.

Squeaky clean skin without feeling tight

You’ll never have to worry about stripping because this plant-derived oil deeply nourishes and softens the skin.

Lauric acid in coconut oil also aids in soothing and calming inflamed skin.

Apart from that, coconut oil serves as an emollient, retaining water and creating a barrier in the skin to improve its texture.

It’s clinically proven to be hypoallergenic

Because Perla laundry soaps are proven to be gentle on the skin, trust that Perla Pure is exactly what it promises: gentle cleansing that’s safe for even those with sensitive skin. It is worth noting that this bar soap does not contain any other additives, colorants, or artificial preservatives. 

It is affordable and widely available

Finding a coconut oil-based bath soap that not only cleanses efficiently but is gentle and is a rare find. So discovering one that’s also budget-friendly is a win. 

If you are looking for a natural and effective way to cleanse and moisturize your skin, coconut oil bath soap is a great option. It is gentle on the skin, has many benefits, and is made with natural ingredients, just like Perla Pure.

Perla Pure is currently available at P50, with an ongoing introductory promotion of Buy 3 for P99. What’s more is that it's easily accessible as it's available on e-commerce platforms Shopee and Lazada, and at retail stores like Mercury Drug Stores, Makati Supermarket, South Supermarket, and Unimart.
