Unveil the ‘New You’ with NUA


I don’t know about you but since the quarantine has started, I have drastically reduced the amount of makeup that I’ve been using because (1) we’re always at home anyways; and (2) if ever I go out, we’d have our masks on anyways, sooo….

“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.”

– Dr. Sarah Barba-Cabodil, dermatologist

I’m sure everyone’s on the right track in giving our skin some time to breathe for the past 8 months from all the layers of cosmetics and skin care products that we’ve all been obsessively using for years.

But how can you take it a step further? Here’s now NUA comes into play.


NUA combines a centuries-old Brazilian beauty secret, cupuaçu, with an abundant Philippine natural resource, the versatile coconut oil. Cupuaçu, pronounced as “ku.ˌpu.a.ˈsu,” 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 cupuaçu fruit is a popular ingredient used in numerous South American delicacies; while the fruit’s pulp and seeds are where the skin-nourishing cupuaçu butter and oil are sourced. Because of cupuaçu’s extremely low melting point, the cupuaçu butter can easily melt into the skin. The addition of locally harvested premium-grade coconut oil into the mix allows the cupuaçu butter’s ultra-hydrating and moisture-boosting properties to get sealed in, without the heavy, greasy feel that you usually get from most skincare products.


Very mildly scented, almost reminiscent of a clean buttery bar, NUA’s Cupuaçu soap forms a rich creamy lather that feels luxurious as it gently cleans the skin–thanks to its high percentage of Virgin Coconut Oil, which is particularly endemic in the Philippines.

I’ve been using NUA’s Cupuaçu Bar Soap for my face and body for weeks now and I really love the clean feeling without it stripping my skin’s natural moisture. My skin is left soft, supple, and without that dry skin patches that I usually get during the cooler months of the year.

NUA is now available from the following retailers—all S&R branches nationwide, BeautyMNL, and Southstar Drug branches nationwide. For more information on NUA products, visit www.nua-organics.com
