Bretman Rock-favorite skincare brand Pili Ani pays tribute to Filipina beauty

The homegrown brand is sustainable, purpose-driven and committed to uplifting the lives of artisan farmers.

Local skincare brand Pili Ani celebrates Philippine Independence Day to inspire Filipinos and beauty enthusiasts around the world to love the skin they’re in—morena, chinita, or mestiza; and their petite, curvaceous or extra tall bodies.

Responsibly planted, nurtured, harvested and extracted by its artisan farmers in the Bicol region, Pili Ani’s skincare ingredients bring unparalleled skin benefits to every type of beauty routine.

Pili Ani works with artisan farmers who use techniques that ensure the source–the beloved pili trees–are healthy. It takes between 1,500 and 3,500 pili fruits to make one liter of pili oil.

Its pili oil is packed with natural antioxidants like squalene, oleic acid, linoleic, and tocopherols. These are powerful agents that help prevent cell damage and skin aging caused by external stressors.

Elemi oil helps firm and tighten skin. In the beauty space, it’s been lauded by luxury skincare makers for its anti-bacterial, firming, lifting, and skin rejuvenating properties.
