Pili Ani was created not for profit, but for community

Good for your skin. Good for the environment. Good to know.

Before there was Pili Ani, there was a Pili farmer named Noli. Rosalina bought her very first bottle of Pili Oil from Noli to help him feed his family. She wanted to support the farmer and the agricultural community, but didn’t actually know what to do with the Pili Oil.

Rosalina learned that a very popular French beauty brand was purchasing Elemi resin from the same farmers she was buying Pili Oil from. That’s when she realized the power of Pili Oil to rejuvenate, reinvigorate, and revitalize the skin.

Rosalina began buying bottles of Pili Oil to give away to all her family and friends. She loved supporting farmers like Noli and everyone she gifted Pili Oil to was thrilled with how it made their skin glow.

Mary Jane realized the demand for this powerful anti aging elixir when Rosalina began filling her warehouse space with more and more bottles of this magical Pili Oil.

In 2012,  Mary Jane suggested they invest in clinical tests to see if it would be worthwhile to bring Philippine made Pili Oil products to a global market. Rosalina saw this as a huge opportunity to create a business that would provide a livelihood for the local farmers that would help to uplift their families.

That’s when they discovered that the famous French beauty brand buying Elemi resin was actually doing more harm than good. There were several dead Pili Trees due to overtapping the Elemi resin, and the tree had become threatened by habitat destruction and was officially classified as being vulnerable. The trees weren’t the only ones suffering. The low wages the farmers were earning for all their hard work wasn’t sustainable.

Rosalina started an agricultural education program to teach the farmers the best practices to make a living while keeping the trees healthy. What she quickly learned was that the Pili Tree produces not just one, but two precious oils that create the holy grail of anti-aging when combined.

In 2016, Pili Ani officially launched in the Philippines. One year after that, we launched in the United States. And today, farmer Noli still works for the brand harvesting the Pili and Elemi oils that are found in every Pili Ani product.

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.

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.

Pure Elemi Oil comes from the sap of the bark of the Chosen Tree. This sought after ingredient is used in beauty and wellness products all over the world due to its incredible skin firming properties. Pure Elemi Oil is anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antimicrobial so it not only tones, firms, and smooths fine lines, it also helps fight lingering acne causing bacteria.

Because we source our Pili and Elemi Oils right from our Pili Tree farm in the Philippines, we are in control of the entire process— from farm to face!

Pili Ani follows strict tapping techniques,  waiting 5 - 6 years to procure the Elemi Oil, ensuring each tree can thrive without the use of harmful pesticides, chemicals, or synthetic materials to stimulate growth or induce harvests.

That means that when you add Pili Ani products to your skincare routine, you’re not just treating your skin to the best nature has to offer; you’re working with us to take better care of the planet that we call home.

Because of you, we have planted more than 250 new Pili Trees in our forests and have partnered with the local Philippine government to plant an additional 20,000 more.
