Moisturizing our skin is a must-do and should be included in our everyday skincare routine. It is one of the easiest ways to keep our skin looking its best. But of course, one must be willing to exert effort and time in doing so. There are a lot of benefits that you can have when you moisturize and that includes the following:
- Prevents dryness.
- Reduce symptoms of inflammation.
- Soothes sensitive skin.
- Gives skin a glowing look.
- Skin looks younger.
- Added sun protection.
- Fights acne.
Everyday, we use soaps, body washes, lotions, creams and oils, plus the ones that we put on our faces. Yet, for most of us, the search for the right skincare product(that actually works for us) continues to be a seemingly endless and increasingly expensive quest. As a result, we tend to use more than what we need, according to renowned dermatologist Dr.Sarah Barba-Cabodil,
＂When we minimize the skincare products that we apply,we allow more oxygen to get into our skin and that helps our skin regenerate elastin and collagen. Essentially,we want our skin to do its job on its own every now and then.In other words,we need to give our skin time to reset. The secret to effortless and effective natural skincare is simple, it starts with breaking bad skincare habits and learning how to simplify our routines by choosing the right product.”
And this is where NUA comes in. And last October 10, NUA Organics was officially launched online thru a Facebook Live event hosted by Cesca Litton-Kalaw. She was joined by beautiful women including Binibing Pilpinas 2019 1st runner-up Bb. Samantha Bernardo, among others. Aesthetic Dermatologist and Medical Director of Clinica Figura Dr. Sarah Barba-Cabodil was also part of the panelist who shed some light on the benefits of skin superfood cupuacu.
NUA Organics is a brand brought to the Philippines by Organique, the company that produces the Organique Acai Premium Blend and the Organique Acai Freeze-Dried Capsules.
“NUA started as a dream. My father approached me about three years ago to tell me that he had just learned about a remarkable Brazilian fruit called cupuacu. He asked me if I wanted to join him in creating products made from it that we could bring to the Philippines. After researching what cupuacu was all about-and the wonders that it could do to the skin-I quickly accepted his offer,” says Martina Salimbangon, daughter of Elton and Cathy Salimbangon, the dynamic duo behind Organique.
The NUA Organics skincare product line consist of two variants… The soft and glowing NUA BODY OIL (350ml) which is priced at Php799 and the pure and honest NUA FACE AND BODY SOAP (125g) which is priced at PHP249.
“NUA translates to’naked.That name was chosen becauseour brand is’naked,’free of chemicals,toxins and unwanted preservatives.It is organic and all-natural because NUA believes in enhancing one’s own beauty, rather than changing it,” explains Martina.
Both products of NUA Organics combines a centuries-old Brazilian beauty secret, cupuacu, and the versatile coconut oil that has a very abundant natural resource in the Philippines. Cupuacu, pronounced as “ku.,pu.a.’su,” is a fruit rich in vitamins,fatty and amino acids, as well as antioxidants that is harvested from the heart of the Amazon rainforest.

The cupuacu fruit is a popular ingredient used in numerous South American delicacies while the fruit’s pulp and seeds are where the skin-nourishing cupuacu butter and oil are sourced. Because of cupuacu’s extremely low melting point, the cupuacu butter can easily melt into the skin.
The addition of locally harvested premium-grade coconut oil into the mix allows the cupuacu butter’s ultra-hydrating and moisture-boosting properties to get sealed in, without the heavy, non-clogging, greasy feel that you usually get from most skincare products.
How to use the NUA BODY OIL and NUA FACE AND BODY SOAP? You may use the NUA Soap like your everyday soap when you take a bath- Lather it up, rinse and then apply a thin layer of NUA Body Oil after. That’s just at. Pretty simple .
I have yet to try these naturally-made products, and so excited to what it can do to my skin. But one thing is for sure and I’m certain of right now. The combination of the cupuacu and virgin coconut oil smells really nice, sweet, mild, and clean. Thank you by the way NUA Organics family for sending me these two products. ❤️
