From Bicol’s prized pili tree comes a wonderful nut used in local cuisine since the Spanish times. But did you know that other benefits can also be mined from the Pili tree’s bark, pulp, and leafy crown? Pili oil and Elemi oil were discovered by organic agricultural advocate Rosalina “Rose” S. Tan with the help of a team of scientists and experts who carefully extracted oil from the fruits and resin of the Pili tree. These natural oils help hydrate the skin and maintain its firmness and elasticity. After more than a decade of studying and testing, PILI is now a luxurious personal care brand that uses 100 percent natural Pili and Elemi oils as the base and active ingredients for its products. Enjoy this homegrown label’s makeup and skincare, which are also rich in moisturizing vitamin E, antioxidants, and anti-bacterial properties.
