One of the best things you can do for your skin is to use products that are free of harsh ingredients. No matter what your skin type is, you have to treat your skin gently. Thankfully, there’s a new local skincare brand that advocates for mild and organic products. Kings and queens, meet Shiro Skin Care!
Shiro has all the green flags that we look for when choosing what to include in our skincare routine. They’re organic all the way—from using natural ingredients and creating 100% vegan formulations to being cruelty-free and FDA-approved.

Founded by RJ and JR Lumbatan in 2015, Shiro Skin Care started off with its Beautints which everyone loved and has now expanded into offering Skin Care products that are mild, effective, and will not break the bank.
If you are worried about spending too much on skincare, you don’t have to worry as Shiro Skin Care has the Mildest Rejuvenating Set for just Php280. This comes with soap, toner, cream, and sunscreen that is perfect for a simple yet effective skincare routine.
The Soap is made with Papaya extract, alpha arbutin, hyaluronic acid, aloe vera, glutathione, and kojic acid. The toner, on the other hand, has alpha arbutin, castor oil, lactic acid, and retinyl palmitate. The ingredients from the two products alone are present in products that are way more expensive in the market today.
What we loved about this set is the cream that has Papaya Extract, Retinyl Palmitate, Vitamin B3, Alpha Arbutin, and Vitamin C. We also got a sunscreen that we can use every day that is packed with collagen and niacinamide. And of course, you don’t have to worry about harsh ingredients because these products are made of natural ingredients.
If you are loving the Korean Skin Care trend, you can check out the Shiro Glass Skin Set. It is designed to intensely moisturize the skin and stimulate collagen production for a glass-like skin effect that is smooth, soft, and glowing.
The set includes the whitening collagen facial foam cleanser, exfoliating toner, glass skin serum, and tinted sunscreen- all for just Php680.

According to Shiro, the benefit of the set is it removes the dirt and excess oil from the skin to make it feel clean and refreshed. It is perfect for those who have normal to dry skin and gives the skin balanced moisture levels. But aside from that, it is also designed to treat acne and pimples, remove blackheads, and shrink visible pores.
Our favorite from the set is the facial foam cleanser that removes impurities and unclogs pores.
If you want to look a little lighter and brighter, you can also check out their whitening set for just Php680. This already has your full body skin care that includes 2 bars of soap, AHA Serum, and lotion. With religious use, Shiro claims that you can see results in just 7 days.
Since the weather in the Philippines can be super harsh to the skin, Shiro’s Sunscreen is something that you need every day. It has an SPF 50+++ Broad spectrum and UVA/UVB protection that is non-sticky and lightweight that makes it a perfect addition to your daily essentials. It has natural ingredients like radish root extract, collagen, hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, and aloe vera. It also has ingredients that moisturize, brighten the skin, and has an anti-aging formula that helps in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
A crowd favorite is Shiro’s Insta-whitening lotion with SPF70. It has glutathione, alpha arbutin, niacinamide, and shea butter. It is non-sticky and leaves a soft and smooth finish.
Aside from the sets, you can also get individual products like their glass skin serum (Php250), activated charcoal mud pack (Php250), Body Bleaching Scrub (Php300), Shiro Exfoliating Toner (Php120), Rejuvenating Toner (Php250), Shiro AHA-Whitening Booster (Php250), Shiro Extreme Whitening Soap (Php200), Shiro Whitening Sunscreen (Php180), Shiro Tinted Sunscreen (Php220) and Shiro Facial Foam Cleanser (Php300).
While Shiro is still expanding through its distributors and resellers all over the country, they are expanding its reach as they open its factory in Valenzuela City. Though Shiro already has quite an extensive range of products available, they are making sure that each and every product would be perfect for all skin types, made with ingredients that would be perfect for any skin type and will not break the bank.
Your skin already goes through so much every day, being exposed to harmful external forces like pollution and sun damage. The least you can do is to be gentle with it. Shiro is awarded as the mildest skincare brand in the market and a true testament that it is a brand to watch out for. ‘
By trying Shiro Skin Care, you can easily shower your skin with TLC, helping you achieve skin that’s in!
