Diwatang Maria: Leading Filipinos to Green Beauty

The crisis that we are facing nowadays are putting us all in a very challenging situation that we are starting to forget about our well-being. Along with staying healthy and strong, looking beautiful is still relevant, and this is why lately, together with the beautiful plants that I'm collecting and using as decorations in our small house in Tondo, Manila, I'm also treating myself to some "green" remedies to shoo the blues away caused by the quarantine.

We cannot deny that there are still a lot of Filipinos who are still being swayed by the popular concept of beauty that Western countries has drilled in their psyche. But with the emergence of "Green Revolution", countless people are starting to question if these products endorsed by some personalities and celebrities could really help them look appealing, moreso, would make them more comfortable without sacrificing their healthy and money.

Recently, a friend of mine introduced me to this local brand named after the famous folklore that we read and listen to when we were younger - in my generation, at least. 

Diwatang Maria is a local start-up brand that blends science and passion to give Filipinos access to effective, achievable, and sustainable skincare. Leading a country through Green Beauty, which is a growing movement of people and industries who want to be beautiful and responsible at the same time, Diwatang Maria is setting the benchmark for Green Beauty at a high level.

Green beauty is clean beauty and generally refers to products which are non-toxic and not harmful whether they are natural or not. One must take not that there is no such thing as ‘chemical-free’ cosmetics since every ingredient used in developing a cosmetic product, natural or synthetic is a chemical. What green beauty tries to emphasize is the absence of harsh synthetic elements, which are toxic and carcinogenic every consumer applies in his/her body, and at the same time do not destroy the environment.

Diwatang Maria recently introduced its three pilot products, namely Mariang Makiling, Mariang Sinukuan, and Mariang Cacao.

Diwatang Maria Makiling, which is inspired by the sacred protector of Mt. Makiling, is set to give the harmonious combination of Papaya Enzyme and Kojic Acid, which is an organic compound derived from fungi and malting of rice known to be effective in improving the appearance of melasma and hyper-pigmentation. This soap also uses Coconut Oil and Aloe Vera that work best to prevent acne and blemishes. Its rich lather leaves the skin healthy and glowing.

Meanwhile, Diwatang Maria Sinukuan contains Oatmeal Kernel and Colloidal Oatmeal that help your skin free from irritation and itching. Perfect for sensitive skin, Diwatang Maria Sinukuan combines the power of Papaya Enzyme, Glutathione, and Kojic Acid to provide your skin the antioxidants that keep the skin healthy, clean, and glowing. It also contains coconut oil and aloe vera, together with oatmeal, they form a trio of antibacterial and anti-inflammatory lather for healthy and radiant skin.

Diwantang Maria Cacao, the chocolate-scented soap nourishes the skin through the skin-enhancing benefits from Oatmeal Kernel, Colloidal Oatmeal, and Shea Butter. The powerful moisturizing effect of this trio helps the skin to delay aging and boosts the production of collagen.

All Diwatang Maria products are made from all-natural, paraben-free, and free of other harmful ingredients. These products also promote the use of locally made organic goods and eco-friendly products that are 100% Filipino-made and at par with international brands when it comes to quality.
