I am aware of the existence of Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV).  It has helped many (including me) in addressing their problems specific to this vinegar. ACV has predominately reigned as the best solution for weight loss, nutrient absorption, and clearer skin. Is there any other vinegar out there that can do the same?

Say hello to Coco Cider Vinegar (CCV). ACV & CCV have actually almost the same health benefits for the body except that CCV has a low glycaemic index and has a sweet, milder flavor, making it a better substitute to ACV for anyone who finds it too acidic.

Now I am introduced to Coco Cider Soap with Activated Bamboo Charcoal. This is something new to me, having tried and tested similar products. With the proliferation of a slew of beauty soaps in the market today, what does this particular soap offer that others do not have? Let us scrutinize two of its most important ingredients: Coco Cider and Activated Bamboo Charcoal.


Made from either coconut water or naturally fermented sap of coconut flowers, it has the following skin benefits:

  1. Anti-aging – with the presence of Cytokinin, Kinetin, and Trans-zeatin in coconuts.
  2. Fights Dryness – Coconut Oil prevents flakiness and dryness, keeping skin supple and moisturized.
  3. Prevents Skin Cancer – by blocking off 20% of harsh UV rays
  4. Provides youthful skin – its antioxidant property slows down the aging process keeping the skin young and beautiful.
  5. Treats oily skin – Coconut water naturally washes off excess oil from the body keeping even skin tone.
  6. Detox – packed with amino acids and Vit. B & C, thus balancing the pH level plus refines and revitalizes the skin.


The charcoal here is NOT the charcoal we use in grilling our barbeques. It is an odorless black powder made from coconut shells, bamboo, or sawdust, heated at high temperatures, making it more porous:

  1. Skin exfoliation and sebum control.
  2. Helps fight acne.
  3. Detoxifies the skin by removing dirt and excess oil.
  4. Reduces pore size and prevents premature aging.
  5. Treats Psoriasis.

These two elements in one bar of soap make this Bakku2Basik Manila product worth trying. It lathers really well and does not dissolve easily, making it more economical. The size says it well.

But that’s not all. Coco Cider apparently is not confined to being used just for soap alone.

Coco Cider with Aloe Leaf & Lemongrass Soothing Lotion has the ability to reduce harmful airborne bacteria. Maybe good against our present enemy which is Covid-19?

This one, I must admit, will be used regularly by yours truly because of my arthritis. I just love the soothing effect on my knees whenever I apply it on. Feel the tender heat it gives off after only a few strokes. Not to mention the aroma that it emits whenever I use it to massage my knees and hands. It is so relaxing. Put 1 or 2 drops on your hands, spread on your palms and cup over your nose to help ease tension and promote easy breathing.

Bakku2Basik also has all-natural Moringa Leaf Gluta Soap which promotes whitening. It is made up of Virgin Coconut Oil, Aloe Vera, and Oatmeal. Ingredients which will truly take care of your face and body. It also contains Vitamin C which helps boost collagen, reduces fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. It’s Paraben-free, SLES-free, and Triclosan-free.

Presently, we all should keep healthy for us not to get the virus. There are so many ways to boost our immune system to help ward off illnesses. And one of those is drinking tea. We all know the benefits of taking hot tea every day to detox.

Organic Detoxing Tea by Healthy Choices has Green Tea, Ginger, Lemon, and Mint Combo which is proven to be a powerful combination for weight loss and detoxification. Great that it helps strengthen the immune system, lower blood sugar level, increase energy level, and is rich in antioxidants. This tea smells and tastes good!
