Born into a family of soap makers, Ma. Concepcion Macalintal is passionate about green beauty, so she created her own line of organic soaps, Diwatang Maria, named after goddesses who protect the mountains they inhabit.

Diwatang Maria is open to distributors and Macalintal launched Project Bayanihan for her resellers to make a living during the pandemic.
