Here Are Rissa Mananquil-Trillo’s Top 3 Green Beauty Picks

The entrepreneur was just launched as local beauty brand Dermtropics’ newest ambassador!

Skincare goes beyond the many steps or long processes we do at night for our face—it also extends to the rest of our body and even our mane! These days, more and more people have embraced and incorporated self-love routines beyond the usual face cleansing, toning, and moisturizing. Because beauty and wellness is holistic, no part of ourselves should be left neglected!


What’s even more exciting is the rise of green beauty in the local scene, which not only benefits our planet but does even more good to our skin. Imagine indulging in self-care products that are beautifully natural and effective—it’s like having your own spa at home, no matter the time of the day.

With Dermtropics’ body and hair care line composed of wet-milled virgin coconut oil sourced from raw and organic Philippine coconuts along with other plant-based ingredients, Rissa considers their offerings as excellent options to include in your shower routine. “I love that their products are cultivated by Mindanao farmers, handcrafted by women, and tested by dermatologists,” she attests. “What excited me the most about Dermtropics is their farm-to-skin process for ingredient sourcing while embracing conscious beauty standards.”


Among their line of good-for-you gems, the entrepreneur enthusiastically shares her holy grail picks. If you’re looking for a sign to switch, Rissa tells you exactly why these choices are mindful and top-tier. Read on!

Dermtropics Raw Coconut Hand and Body Lotion

First, Rissa is a big fan of lotion—admitting that rain or shine, humid or cold, she loves slathering this moisturizing product from her neck down to her feet. And she’s especially in love with Dermtropics’ offering for all the good reasons—it goes on smoothly, finishes off matte, has no sticky feeling, and is unscented. She emphasizes the last point as a big factor. “I prefer a lotion that doesn’t compete with my scent. A lot of fragrances stay longer when sprayed on moisturized skin, so its really good to have an unscented body lotion,” the entrepreneur explains.

Dermtropics Raw Coconut + Aloe Vera Low Foaming Shampoo

Loved both by her and her daughters, this low-foam shampoo is her favorite for one major reason: scalp care. “Imagine this as your favorite cream cleanser, but for your scalp,” Rissa describes. “Your scalp needs to be cared for the same way as your face, and a lot of people neglect that.” Aside from being free from many potentially harmful ingredients, she vouches for its efficacy in controlling hair fall! 


Dermtropics Raw Coconut + Argan Oil Intensive Repair Conditioner

And finally, the conditioner-lover in her goes for Dermtropics’ version. As someone with thin and fine hair, she needs a product that will give her tresses health, shine, and bounce. And she’s happy to report that, “their conditioner makes my hair so soft and smooth without weighing it down.”
