PILI Beauty partners with Pili farmers group
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.
