Papaya and Calamansi Soap, Development studies


Millennials monitor their skin condition much more closely than those with sensitive skin. Mostly, it was believed that the higher the price of the soap, the better protection it gives. In this study, we explore all the possibilities with proven evidence and theories, with homemade papaya and calamansi soap being the wisest and more practical alternative for pricey skin care soap for people with sensitive skin. Both the descriptive approach and developmental method of research were used in the methodology of our study. Purposive or subjective sampling was used in which chosen respondents are to participate in surveys based on their own judgment. 100 Grade 12 ABM students of General de Jesus College were asked to answer the designed questionnaires dealing with their judgments about the products and their possible effects on their sensitive skin. Most of our respondents have sensitive skin, and they approved and satisfactorily agreed that our product, homemade papaya, and calamansi soap were advisable options. Aside from the positive skin care effect, the significant price difference was essential to their decision. The researchers found concrete proof that homemade papaya and calamansi soap is the best alternative for sensitive skin. They were convinced that price must not be the basis for skin care.
