You want to step out feeling fresh and new every day, right?
With Oli Natural whitening beauty soaps you can achieve that and so much more. Made from coconut oil, Oli Natural is traditionally processed that successfully combines natural ingredients to condition and enhance one’s natural beauty conveniently and economically.
“Oli Natural soaps are what we call ‘real’ soaps. We can confidently say this because our soaps are not just for keeping the skin clean. We produce soaps in a traditional way called cold processing so that the active properties of its natural ingredients remain intact and benefit those who will use the product. Unlike other brands that leave your skin dry and stripped of its natural oils, Oli Natural moisturizes and conditions your skin to bring out a new you,” said President and Chief Executive Officer, Jerry Foz Sesmundo of Activo Global, Inc., the company behind Oli Natural soaps.
More importantly, cold processed soaps bring more value to your money because they are carefully formulated and hand-made by batches while hot processed soaps are mass produced and made in a very economical manner, compromising its value and quality.
To date, Oli Natural soap has five variants: Gluta Papaya for excellent moisturizing; Green Barley, anti-aging, and helps in achieving an odor-free day; Activated Charcoal for deep cleansing and detox; Intense White for extra strength whitening; and soon to be available, Komenuka for natural booster of healthy skin.
The Gluta Papaya has primarily coconut oil, glutathione, papaine enzymes, and carrot extract. This variant improves the texture, whitens, moisturizes and protects the skin from pollution.
Green Barley, rich in anti-oxidant, is mainly made up of coconut oil, shea butter, kojic acid, vitamin C, and green barley extract. The Green Barley soap nourishes and repairs the skin as well as while cures skin problems such as itchiness, blemishes and acne.

The Intense White soap has rice bran oil, arbutin, cucumber extract, salicylic acid, among others. This variant lightens, removes dead skin cells, and prevents the appearance of freckles and age spots, and hyper-pigmentation.
Komenuka is made up of Japanese rice bran, which is rich with nutritional values. It is combined with other ingredients to nourish, soothe, hydrate, and promote the natural regeneration of the skin.
At the start, Sesmundo admitted that he was just a regular consumer who just couldn’t find what needed in a bar of soap. “I was in Italy when the idea came to me that I could make my own soaps. At first, I used olive oil so I named it ‘Oli,’ the Italian for oils. The results were great but it was just too expensive so I chose coconut oil as an alternative but kept the name.”
Oli Natural is primarily made up of coconut oil, known for its high moisture content and rich lather. “We are confident in saying that each of our soap is made from coconut oil.
As its base ingredient, the cold processed coconut oil is best suited to deliver the beneficial properties of natural ingredients that are combined and formulated for the overall improvement of one’s skin.
“In the beginning, it was really a personal undertaking. I was just looking for a better option from what is available in the market. Backed by the business tools that I have, I began the production process and came up with a product line that is centered on consumer satisfaction,” said Sesmundo when asked how he started in the soap-making business.
With that in mind, Sesmundo took it upon himself to conduct further product research, testing and development. He also played an active role in consumer profiling, marketing, and supervising distribution channels in the key areas locally and abroad. It took about a year to develop Oli Natural soaps, Activo Global, Inc. first product line.
After its introduction to the market in 2014, Oli Natural products have been receiving rave reviews from consumers. In answer to the growing demand, Sesmundo and Activo Global, Inc. are now taking on the challenge of expanding the market presence of its premiere skin care products nationwide. The company has also chosen a couple of endorsers as part of their marketing campaign.
Kristine Sablan is a model and budding actress from Star Magic, the talent management arm of ABS-CBN. Her first regular TV appearance was in the top rating teleserye, “Pangako Sa ‘Yo.” Raven Molina is a basketball enthusiast turned model who dreams of becoming an actor someday. So far, he has appeared in several TV commercials, print ads, and runway shows.
“We chose Kristine and Raven because of their youthful image. They belong to the fresh crop of talents. Just like Oli Natural, they are new in the business but have a lot of potential of making it big. I believe they are best suited to be the personalities that will introduce Oli Natural to the Filipino consumers,” said Sesmundo.
“Filipinos have grown to be smart buyers. They still want affordability, but now they look for quality, value for their money, as well. And that is what we guarantee with Oli Natural: a whitening beauty soap that brings out the new you every day,” added Sesmundo.
