Perla: The All Around Laundry, Face and Body Soap

I am sensitive to laundry and even dishwashing soap. Most of the time I wear protective gloves when I am doing my laundry or even when washing dishes. There is only one laundry detergent that suits me fine. I love using Perla. It is gentle to my hands. It does not leave my skin dry like harsh detergents do. With Perla I do not need protective gloves on my hands. Perla is an organic based soap that has been in the market for as long as I can remember.

The one thing that is also very effective about Perla is that it removes stains so easily. Blood stains on clothes and underwears are so easily removed with just a few minutes soak and a little handwash. I hope that with the advent of technology Perla will soon come out with a powder detergent for washing machine. I used to see one but they are rarely available now.

And one thing more, it is also good as a body soap. I used it often especially on pimple prone and problematic areas. One day my student asked me the soap I am using for my fine skin. Without batting an eyelash, I proudly replied, “Perla”.

This is not a paid blog by Procter and Gamble Philippines, the distributor of Perla. I am just happy to share my organic lifestyle. As I am writing this now, I am looking at my super smooth hands. They look like Pearls!

  1. hello there.

    1) can you share what are the main ingredient of this soap. perhaps you can just capture the other side of the packaging if there’s some information on it.

    2) how much does it cost in Ph ?


  2. Hello a Fish,

    Perla is derived from coconut, where virgin coconut oil is also extracted. That is why it is soft to the skin and has also a whitening effect according to some.

    A pack of perla (4 bars) costs 40.40 philippine pesos in the groceries. one bar is 12.02 pesos.

    thanks for the query. i’m glad to help.

  3. i use perla too for my hand-washed laundry, as a bath soap for me and my dog and as a multipurpose cleanser. it is safe and my skin likes it. i hope it never disappears from the market.

  4. does this really work?… because I already tried all sorts of soap for my pimples but thus is the first time that i will be using perla?… :(

  5. I am currently using perla.. and it is absolutely effective!!! my skin is very sensitive pero dito siya hiyang.. moisturizers lang need.. but it has no side effects… =)

  6. what is the recent market share of perla soap? coz, its our assignment in economics to know their recent market share… thanks

  7. yes effective to base sa aking experience! I used to have a lot of pimples sa mukha pati sa likod ko kaya nirecommend sakin ni mama ito kasi ginagamit niya daw ito mula pa nung college pa siya (51 yrs old na mama ko ngayon). Also yung chemical engineer kong teacher na dating nagtratrabaho sa Perla sabi niya yung mga personnel daw na kasama niya (take note, guys mga kasama niya!) Perla daw ang gamit. Naalala ko yun kaya bumili ako ng bagong bar kanina \(^o ^)

  8. I use Perla soap for my body, it was recommended by my doctor for my atopic dermatitis since perfumed and coloured bath soap makes my skin dry.. because of the colorant and perfume. At first I feel weird using it because I know Perla is a laundry soap, but after I have tried it felt the good result my skin dont itch and dont flakes anymore til now I’m using it. Im using it since 2010

  9. Hi! I’m using Perla soap on my face for almost a month now and I can say that it is really effective. I used to have a lot pimples on my face and I swear to God that I’ve tried almost all the regimens available (even the expensive ones) but it is really Perla which brought back my flawless skin. :)

  10. Hi! I am using Perla as my bath soap for three years now and all of my friends and relatives said that my skin tone lighten (pumuti daw ako), but it is just now that i tried searching reviews for Perla as bath soap. I am glad to read positive feedbacks from this blog! I will continue using Perla (the white one) because i believe it really works for my skin! :)

  14. hai gud afternoon..!!

  15. Hi! I’ve been using Perla soap (plain) on my face for half a year now and I really got awesome results. :) I used to have a lot of pimples on my face and I have tried a lot of facial soaps (even the most expensive ones) but only Perla did the job! And by the way, I also use Top-gel on my face to moisturize it and to remove my pimple marks from my pimples before. Try it yourself! Cheap yet effective!

  16. me too i got pimples on my face, before nung high school pa ako nagkakapmples ako pero hindi namumula at hindi nag iiwan ng dark spot kumbaga parang hindi dinaanan ang mukha ko ng pimple after mawala ang pimples, UNLIKE now na college na ako nagkakapmples ulit ako sa mukha sa cheeks, at namumula talaga sya, pero may nag suggest sa kin na PERLA daw ang gamitin yung white, alam ko kasi yung nag suggest sakin puno din sya ng pimples noon, pero now, wala na as in wala na, nakita ko pa ang mukha nya personally. Hoping effective din to sa akin.. :D

  17. a caveat: p&g refuses to divulge its list of ingredients for perla (call them and ask yourself), citing it as “proprietary” info. this should concern everyone who uses it, whether as a laundry or body soap, considering the very lax safety standards in the philippines and also proctor and gamble’s extremely poor reputation worldwide regarding its environmental practices and the health implications of its products.

    want a quick and eader-friendly rundown of the problem with conventional/corporate-produced soaps? try this:

  18. Hey guys,

    I started using Perla on my body since November 2012 and I’m still using it. I got lots of compliments from my family about my skin. They said “pumuputi ka ha..”. I dont use any lotion after ako maligo kasi di naman nag-ddry skin ko and I think mas malambot ngayon ang skin ko. Pano pa kaya kung maglalagay ako ng lotion diba?? I can say that it’s really effective to lighten your skin tone. :)

  19. hello grabi ang pimples ko kaya, nag search talaga ako kung anong soap ang pwedi.. acne ang nasa mukha ko halos lahat ng sopa nag ginamait ko pati beauche but, mahal eh, kaya nag hahanap ako ng mas cheaper.. anong mas magandang gamitin sa face? white or yung may papaya?

  20. Base sa mga nabasa ko tungkol sa perla soap. Ito na mula ngayon ang gagamitin ko. Marami narin akong nagamit na soaps dahil sa mga pimples ko. Pero sana ito na talaga ang umepekto sa face ko. Perla white po ang gamit ko :)

  21. pwede rin po ang perla na white for lots of scars and pimples sa likod ng body? thank you for your respond :)

  22. omg!! really the best ang perla white.. nawala lahat pimple marks ko in just 2 months i think.. so better use it na din super cheap pa oh dba san kp? daig mo pa nag paderma.. hehe.. love it ..

    1. Hopefully will works for me. One of my friend recommend nya sa akin, dahil may acne din ako pimples every month specially time of the month malalaki. So hopefully Effective sya. $1.75 Dito sa California .

  23. Lol. My fabulous gay professor just shared that he has been using Perla for 39 years. I couldn’t believe it at first because I’ve known Perla as a laundry soap my whole life. I was utterly in awe when he did confirm that he is indeed using the white Perla laundry soap as his one and only beauty product! He also shared that he tried using the Papaya variant but he ended up getting rashes. So for those who are asking which is better, I’d say the original white one, especially if you have sensitive skin. And yes, my professor has glowing and fair skin! So kudos to Perla! ๐Ÿ™Œ

  24. Pero nung gumamit ako ng Perla Soap ung puti parang dumagdag ulit pimples ko pero di ko alam kung nababawasan pero natutuyo ung iba . Sana effective ito sakin , sana walang halong biro ang perla soap.Diyos na ang bahala sakin

  25. I wanna try this tom. I have a lots of pimples on my forehead, It’s started last December 2014. At first konti lang sya, so hindi ko masyado pinansin and hindi kasi talaga ko tigyawatin. But, after mga 2 weeks hindi parin sya natanggal and the worst is mas lalo syang dumami kaya nag worry nako. So, nag start nako mag search na best treatment for pimple may nabasa ko na calamansi daw so I tried to use it but it did’nt works. Pati yung toothpaste & garlic natry ko na rin but nothing has changed. Until may nagsabe sa kin na ‘ I should PERLA ‘ daw nung una I did’nt believe kasi I know na perla is for clothes pero nag search ako about Perla and ang dami kong nabasa sa ibat ibang sites na very effective daw ang perla. So, I decided to try Perla na tomorrow, I hope na effective sya sa kin kagay sa iba. :) I’ll update you guys after a month. Ty guys, Bye.

    1. i had similar problem with you before, soaps, astringents, creams,.kamatis, papaya, kung ano anon nalang para mawala mga tighiyawat ko,.but my acne was worsen, they just multiplied everyday, take note acne na xa,,,dumating ang point na give up na ako at frustrated na..ayoko nang manalamin kasi d ko kaya tingnan face ko, super oily and tigidig overload..wala nmn akong pang derma, sobrang mahal, wala akong pera kasi student pa..but then may nagsabi sa akin try ko daw ang perla, d ako naniwala kaagad, pro d nya ko tinatantanan etry ko nga daw,,so,cge, matry nga.for the first week,lahat ng mga acne parang lalong dumadami at lumalaki,yung iba pumutok(hehhe parang bulkan),,on 2nd week unti unti na silang natuyo at namatay,ang mga papatubo pa lang ay nawawala din,,1 month talagang nawala na sila, d na rin oily face ko, super saya! almost 1 year ko din sya ginagamit,mula nun hindi na bumalik mga acne sa face ko,,use it sa morning at b4 matulog,,mas ok sa akin ang perla white…try mo lang sissy!

  26. good day! ๐Ÿ˜Š

    PERLA WHITE soap is so effective on my skin, as pimple remover and skin whitening. My mom suggested it to me a long time ago but i didn’t pay attention to it. She even said that her cousin from Ilocos who was a professor from UP uses Perla since she was highschool until now that is why she is so flawless. Last month, my pimples cant stop popping everywhere on my face that is why i gave myself a chance to use PERLA. In just 2 weeks, my pimples are dried up, pimple scars are whitening, PLUS, my skin body is whiten. a lot of my friends and neighbors noticing my fair complexion and ask me if what gluta im using or taking and i just told them that ” hindi ako mayaman at hindi ko afford ang mga gluta na yan. PERLA lang yan.” they were shock. but one of my male neighbors told me that he is going to use Perla too because he has acne and bacne, and now? im so happy with the results, it dried up all his acne and bacne. How amazing PERLA is. ๐Ÿ˜Š

  27. paano nyo gamitin ang perla at ilang beses? may nakapagsabi kasi na dapat daw, warm water. is it true?

  28. I am a swimming instructor, 19, I taught kids every morning and afternoom for 1 month. So, obviously I am so dark. I decided to buy perla (white) and used it. And in just 1 wk , my skin lightens, I’m not saying that my skin whitens already, but it is almost back to my normal skin color.

    1. I think the white one suits the best!
      walang side effects ang perla..
      i’m using it for almost two weeks na and agad agad may results..

      i regret na ngayun ko lang sinubokan ang perla. but i think it’s not totally late.

  29. I use perla as my facial wash it cleanses so well, just don’t forget to apply moisturizer immediately after washing. You will get beautiful and clearer skin.

  30. I am also a loyal user of perla as a laundy soap for same reasons as those stated above. My question is how come for several months now there is no supply in almost every major stores here in Baguio City?

  31. sabi ng mom ko effectively daw ang perla. I did some research though just to be sure kasi parang seryoso si mama e. bukas pa ako bibili, ilang minutes/seconds ba ibababad ito sa mukha?

  32. Effective po ba talaga ang perla? Natry ko na kc halos lahat ng sabon, cream, toner, facial foam, even the kalamansi, bawang, kamatis, papaya, baking soda at kung anu-ano pa pero walang nangyari tas lalo pa dumami pimples ko :(

  33. Super frustated nakong mawala itong acne/pimples ko sa mukha. Na try kona ata lahat, albularyo,mga medicinal plant at pti pagppaderma pinatod kona mwwla siya ng konti pero ayan n nman. So i hope humiyang skin ang PERLA kso nga lng dko alam kng anong moisturizer ang mainam na gamitin for my sensitive skin๐Ÿ˜” suggest pls.thanks a lot๐Ÿ˜Š

  34. question, almost 2 weeks na ko gumagamit ng perla at naglabasan lalo ang mga pimples ko.. pakiramdam ko din mainit ang muka ko.. normal lang ba to?
