Acerola White C by Camaru Naturals: Used up and Reviewed

acerola white c soap by camaru naturals


Disclosure: I got this as a gift from Argee of The Beauty Bin. I used this only on the body.

This is the first soap I’ve tried of Camaru Naturals and I like it.

General Product Information
To summarize what’s written on the package:

  • Acerola is a whitening soap. I’m not a fan of whitening products in general, but what the heck. I got this as a gift and I won’t throw it away. Between whitening and earth-friendliness (by way of not throwing stuff away), I choose the latter.
  • This is supposedly a natural japanese soap made of natural japanese ancient secret ingredients that women in japan use to achieve smooth and flawless skin.
  • Acerola, on the other hand, is an ingredient that should have a lot of Vitamin C.
  • Ingredients are listed at the bottom part of the article.
  • It is a product of the Philippines.
  • Php 125.00
Product Description
In terms of look, lather, and over-all feel, this soap is much like most hand-made or ‘natural’ soaps that have little soap hardener.
  • It smells like lime.
  • Comes in a very yellow solid bar (135g.)
  • It has a basic rectangle shape and is packaged in plastic wrap with a sticker label on it.
  • It makes a thick lather and consumes fast. Keep it away from the shower to prevent it from melting.

Before it bid goodbye.


Result/ Effects

  • I expected the soap to be a little bit drying, and it is.
    This is common of soaps made of saponified oils. As far as I know, soap is saponified oil (and not all bath bars are soap).
  • It stings on broken skin.
    Oh my, this soap can feel like actual lime juice being poured down on broken skin. That’s ok with me because my pain tolerance is high and it’s also kind of expected because of the acid content.
  • It dries skin rashes.
    I usually get rashes a few days after I eat eggs, chicken, or shellfish. It usually takes more than a week for the redness and itchiness to go away. This soap made my skin rashes go away faster than it usually does if I didn’t do anything. I also noticed that I didn’t get the usual dark patch I get when my rashes heal.

    For what it did for my skin rashes, the dryness and sting is negligible.


Conclusion
I like it. If I chance upon it in a supermarket or at a mall, I’ll definitely buy a bar for my rashes. I know I’ll use it coz I always eat food I’m allergic to.
Currently, it’s only available via their facebook page and their office at Makati, UG 16 Cityland Dela Rosa Condominium.
Ingredients as printed on the label:
Acerola fruit powder, carica papaya extract, rice bran oil, camellia oil, jojoba oil, coconut oil, molasses, vitamin e, glycerin, fragrance

  1. Hi sisses, just wanted to share it with you. Currently, KOJIC ACID has been banned as a cosmetic ingredient in Japan, Korea and Switzerland because of its mutagenicity concerns. Meaning, long-term use may cause contact dermatitis.

  2. Baka nga, my previous dermatologist prescribed me kojic soap before and it is drying.

    I can't say much about its whitening effect pala, I didn't notice any significant whitening, but I wasn't really paying attention.

  3. We are allergic to the same types of food! I haven't tried Bamboo Charcoal. Maybe you can try acerola on the face. The label says it can be used on the face naman. Skin inflammation din naman ang rashes, parang acne. Maybe it can work to calm down existing breakouts. I'm just not confident it will work to prevent them.

    Sana nga maging available sya sa supermarkets. I don't want to go out of my way to buy them.

  4. Thanks for the review!! Me too! I develop rashes so easily din! I get them when I eat shrimp and eggs but it's so happen to be that shrimp and eggs are my favorites!! aaaurgh!!!the hell db? but that doesn't keep me from eating those, I still chow down even though I know Ill get rashes…haha!! I'm so going to try this as this helps heals rashes faster! I'm also interesting with the Bamboo Charcoal, did you happen to try this too? It claims to heals acne naman, sounds promising kasi.hehee..I just hope they have this in Watson's or supermarket para mas accesible..

What do you think?
