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
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.
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.
