Frequent handwashing is an integral way to protect the body from germs and viruses. Dr. COCO, a new all-natural hand soap that is 100% Filipino-made, aims to elevate handwashing for Filipinos with its breakthrough benefits and features.
Ms. Star Estacio, General Manager for Food and Personal Care BU, Consumer Care Products Inc., the proud team behind DR. COCO Natural Hand Soap, explains the motivation behind this new product. “We wanted to create a hand soap that is designed for the times,” says Star. “At the rate we are washing our hands in this new normal, consumers deserve a hand soap that will not only effectively cleanse, but at the same time, nourish hands using natural ingredients. We have made handwashing better than ever by creating a soap that has multiple benefits that go way beyond just keeping your hands clean, DR.COCO.”
DR.COCO Natural Hand Soap is the first and only 100% Nature-Derived Hand Soap in the Philippines that has solid clinical proof of its anti-bacterial and anti-viral efficacy. It kills, not just removes, 99.99% of bacteria and viruses including coronaviruses. Best of all, it delivers on this clinically-proven cleansing abilities using natural ingredients. It is this duality of being able to use science to harness the power of nature that makes DR. COCO a real game-changer.
DR. COCO takes the term “natural” to heart. Compared to other products that claim to be natural but only contain up to 50% natural ingredients, over 90% of DR.COCO’s ingredients are derived from one of the healthiest natural products from the Philippines: the coconut. The balance ingredients are made of other premium natural materials. That means one can be assured that DR. COCO does not contain harsh, synthetic, or crude-oil derived ingredients commonly found in hand soaps today.
Furthermore, DR.COCO is the first and only hand soap in the market made with CocoMCT ® (medium chain triglycerides) the most essential component of coconut oil. Not only does CocoMCT® act as a natural moisturizer, it also has proven anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties. CocoMCT® is compatible with the natural lipids found in the hands, allowing it to easily go beneath the skin’s surface, and continuously pamper the skin even with repeated use. In the end, instead of a squeaky clean sensation after wash that one normally gets, DR.COCO leaves a noticeable luxurious after feel.
Pia expressed great excitement over the product and believes it can have a positive impact on the daily lives of Filipinos. “In my heart, I always knew that we Filipinos are capable of producing excellent products but to actually experience one makes me beam with pride. DR. COCO goes the extra mile. It provides extra cleansing, extra protection, extra care, and is extra natural. I am proud to represent a proudly Filipino-made product of this quality. Magaling talaga tayong mga Pinoy.”
Wurtzbach will be representing DR. COCO as the leading brand ambassador at the hand soap’s grand virtual launch this coming May 19. Entitled “The Art of Clean: A Masterpiece by DR. COCO,” the event is set to start off DR.COCO’s time in the Philippines with a bang.
