For the very first time in the Philippines, discover My Prime on BeautyMNL! Tessa Yutadco founded My Prime as an extension of her own personal journey to wellness. With her total approach to health that included diet, exercise, and all-natural beauty products, it was only a matter of time before Tessa decided to create a skincare line that combined effective natural botanicals with the latest advances in skin care science. As a US-based Filipina, her quest for effective botanicals led her back to the Philippines where she discovered the miraculous skin care and wellness benefits found in Pili and Moringa oils. Working with a leading skin care scientist in the United States, they fused nature and science to come up with My Prime Anti-Aging Formulas. Since then, My Prime and its innovative use of Pili oil has been featured in U.S. magazine New Beauty as “One of the Best Botanicals You’ve Never Heard Of” and was recommended by Details magazine as one of three skin care products with moringa to try.
Here’s the fifth and last installment in our Best of 2017 Series.
Established in 2012, My Prime is a California-based skincare company. It was founded by wellness enthusiast Tessa Yutadco, who was born and lived in the Philippines before migrating to the United States.
Built on the belief that true beauty stems from total body wellness, My Prime delivers highly effective skin care products to empower women by enhancing their health, beauty, and personal confidence. This is through its highly effective anti-aging treatments.
In her attempt to discover the perfect blend of botanical ingredients, Yutadco returned to the Philippines. There, she discovered the skin care benefits found in the pili and moringa nut oils. At the same time, she worked with a leading skin care scientist in the US to identify and extract their active ingredients. This resulted in the formulation of My Prime’s anti-aging products that fuse the best of nature and science.
The reason for the use of pili and moringa oils are their many skin care benefits. Pili oil contains high concentrations of omega fatty acids and Vitamins A and E, useful in hydrating the skin while relieving any redness and inflammations. Moringa oil, on the other hand, has a high Vitamin C content that makes it a natural skin brightener. It is also loaded with antioxidants which helps rejuvenate the skin for a younger appearance.
My Prime also directly invests in the farming communities located in the Bicol region of the Philippines—the main producers of pili nut oil. The company has provided the pili farmers with seedlings and planting materials, as well as training in sustainable growing practices. It aims to empower the farmers to use this knowledge acquired from their partnership to create a sustainable income for themselves and their families.
