PILI Beauty part­ners with Pili farmers group

Business World - - BULLETINS -

PILI FARMERS of Bi­col — once the poor­est of the poor — are now able to aug­ment their in­come through their co­op­er­a­tive with farmers from dif­fer­ent prov­inces, har­vest­ing and pro­cess­ing what we know now as Pili oil.

Pili oil is ex­tracted from the pili fruit. It is only in the Philip­pines that the pili is com­mer­cially grown and pro­cessed. The nuts them­selves have been found to con­tain 70% oil — akin to the Ma­cadamia. The oil from other parts of the fruit it­self is rich in Vi­ta­min A and To­co­pherol (Vi­ta­min E), other­wise known as nat­u­ral anti-ag­ing com­po­nents.

Some farmers group from Sor­so­gon & Ca­marines Sur are al­ready part­ners with PILI Beauty — an all- nat­u­ral line of per­sonal care prod­ucts en­hanced with pili and el­emi oil. Through their har­vest of pili oil, the farmers now re­ceive a new source of in­come and through this, they can send their chil­dren to school & up­grade their stan­dard of liv­ing.

The farmers are also taught zero waste man­age­ment con­scious­ness, making use of ev­ery part of the pili nut and pulp. This means less stress on the en­vi­ron­ment as well as re­duced pol­lu­tion in pro­duc­tion.

PILI Beauty does not just want to pro­vide short term liveli­hood so­lu­tions for th­ese farmers, but to ul­ti­mately up­lift the qual­ity of life for those who be­long to this sec­tor. “Our goal is a long term re­la­tion­ship with th­ese farmers that will help up­grade their stan­dards of liv­ing,” said PILI Beauty’s vi­sion­ary Founder Rose Tan.

At par if not bet­ter than Ar­gan and Olive oil, PILI Beauty af­ter ex­tra­ne­ous re­search & cre­ative in­no­va­tion en­vi­sion our very own Pili oil com­pa­ra­ble to world-class beauty prod­uct both lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional mar­ket. More than the beauty ben­e­fits the pili oil can pro­vide cham­pi­oning a lo­cal prod­uct, we are pump­ing life into the back­bones of our so­ci­ety & leav­ing it bet­ter than we started it.
