Emille Mendoza

Emille launched Boracay Skin in 2015 and, from humble beginnings, grew the business into a globally successful skincare brand by 2020. Emille was first inspired to create gorgeous coconut oil based skincare products during a trip to Boracay in her native Philippines, where she discovered the effect of coconut oil on the skin. After completing a bachelor of business majoring in entrepreneurship in 2013 and with no idea of which career path to follow, Emuille was motivated by her love for travel and went on to work as a flight attendant. Working in the air led to her having issues with dry skin and thus began her exploration to find oils that could keep her skin healthy and hydrated, encouraging her to relook at coconut oil she had discovered for herself in Boracay. After the sudden and heartbreaking loss of her brother in 2014, Emille decided to not waste another day and took the plunge into following her dream of starting her own business - and Boracay Skin was born!
