When it comes to products that I use on my face and body, I would always prefer those with “natural” ingredients. It’s safe and less likely to have adverse reactions. And speaking of “natural ingredients” there are products in the market that has caught my attention just recently.
NATURAL BEAUTY and wellness-focused brand Pili has come up with a diverse range of products that champions the under-appreciated potential of the local pili tree.
By harnessing pili oil from the pulp of the pili fruit and the even more potent elemi oil from the resin, Pili produces oils, soaps, lotions, and other potions that maximize moisturizing and anti-aging properties. What’s more, everything is hypoallergenic, anti-bacterial, paraben-free, and natural.
Here’s a selection of products under the Pili brand that you might want to try:
