Spotlight on the Good: The Tropical Miracle


The Philippines’ warm, balmy climate made it the world’s top producer of the coconut, which is highly prized not only for its flavor but also for its utility. From its fibrous husks to its yummy flesh to its refreshing juice, the coconut is a rich source of everyday staples but it's most probably known for the versatile and well-loved coconut oil.


Many Uses, One Natural Ingredient
Rich in amino acids, vitamins, and minerals, virgin coconut oil is touted as an all-around remedy, becoming a staple recommendation for both health issues and top-to-toe beauty woes. For today, we'll be zooming in on this wonder oil's skin-saving magic! 

Skin Softener: Coconut oil has saturated fats which, when applied on skin, keep it smooth to the touch. These fats are also what allows coconut oil to retain the skin's moisture content, keeping it baby soft throughout the day.

This is why it's been said that coconut oil is good for hardened and cracked feet as it helps soften callouses and hard skin within just a few days.

Handy Healer: With strong antimicrobial properties, coconut oil has been known to help with a spectrum of skin problems from prickly heat and body pimples to even atopic dermatitis! 

Scientific research points out coconut oil's rich protein content which aids in the replacement of sick or dying cells, giving the oil the ability to fight microbial bodies within and at the same time heal the visible marks caused by the skin problem. Amazing!

Lather Up in Pure Goodness

You can get the goodness of coconut oil by including it in your diet (some use it as their cooking oil!), applying it topically on a problem spot or better yet, by bathing in it with Human Nature's Gentle Cleansing Bar!


Human Nature Cleansing Bars are made with environmentally friendly Philippine coconut oil to keep your skin soft, smooth and comfortably clean after every bath. Because it's sourced and produced locally, the coconut oil we use has less carbon footprint. Plus, it's a highly renewable resource, unlike mineral oil!

Our Cleansing Bars' formulations are also lush with natural glycerin and essential oils, letting every bath time be a testimony of nature's touch of goodness. They're also free from BHT and EDTA, discoloration-preventing chemicals found in many soaps that can irritate the eyes and skin. To top it all off, they're cold-processed to retain their natural glycerin, consuming less energy and producing less waste. Cheers to looking good without harming the environment!
