The Chosen Tree

In the heart of the Bicol Region in the Philippines stands the resilient Pili Tree. Bicol is hit by several storms each year and despite the toll it takes, is touted as the ‘stress-loving tree’ because the magnificent Pili Tree bears even more fruit after every typhoon. ‍ All that she bears is what gives life to the province and its multitude of farmers and their families who rely on her generosity to make a life for themselves.


Pili and Elemi Oils

This rare and potent oil is truly a miracle protector and healer for your skin through all of its layers. Pili Oil penetrates deep into the skin to lock in moisture without ever feeling greasy, protects your skin from free radicals and pollutants that cause aging, and can even repair and reverse existing skin damage.

It can take up to 10 years for a Pili Tree’s fruit to fully mature and 3,500 individual Pili fruits are needed to produce just one liter of Pili Oil. Luckily, the Chosen Tree not only survives the many typhoons that happen each year, but actually produces even more fruit after each storm.

Miracle Protector

Pili Ani is the only ​brand that uses Pili and Elemi oils in all of its products.

Pure Pili Oil comes from the fruit of the Pili Tree. Each Pili fruit is meticulously hand-picked at its prime and cleaned before the oil is extracted from the pulp.

Pili fruit is the highest source of Vitamin E among all nuts, and pure Pili Oil contains one of the highest concentrations of antioxidants and is extremely rich in essential fatty acids. This makes Pili Oil incredibly nourishing and soothing for all skin types.

Giving Back

The team behind Pili Ani embodies The Chosen Tree’s generosity by helping over 200 families in the Bicol Region. ‍The brand believes in circularity and doesn’t just provide income by purchasing harvested nuts and oils but also creating programs that uplift the lives of its community of farmers.
