Pili and Moringa Oils
Pili and Moringa oils are the cornerstone of select My Prime Anti-Aging Formulas. Rich in antioxidants and omega fatty acids, these extraordinary botanical oils have historically been used by Filipino women to achieve healthy, ageless skin.
Indigenous to the fertile Bicol region of the Philippines, the Canarium Ovatum (“Pili”) tree is the source of a superior restorative oil that contains high concentrations of omega fatty acids and Vitamins A and E. These age-defying ingredients allow Pili oil to rejuvenate the skin by infusing it with deep hydration while also calming redness and inflammation. Moreover, compared to olive oil, Pili oil contains more beta-carotene (a known Vitamin A source), which encourages cell renewal and improves the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Pili oil is gentle enough for all skin types, and absorbs easily into the skin to impart a light, youthful glow.
To ensure the purity of the oil, local Filipino farmers grow the Pili tree without fertilizers or pesticides. The farmers then manually extract the oil from the pulp of the Pili fruit without using any additives.
Widely cultivated in the Philippines, the Moringa Oleifera tree is considered one of the most nutritious plants on the planet. Living up to its reputation as a “miracle tree,” the Moringa tree is packed with omega fatty acids and a multitude of antioxidants including Vitamins A, C, and E. Nutritionally, it contains more Vitamin A than carrots, more Vitamin C than oranges, more potassium than bananas, and more calcium and protein than milk.
Moringa oil is extracted from the seeds of the tree using environmentally sustainable practices. Supercharged with anti-aging benefits, this lightweight oil penetrates deep into the skin to enhance proper cell growth, replenish hydration, and bolster the skin’s natural defense against environmental attack. In addition, its high concentration of Vitamin C makes Moringa oil a natural skin brightener that helps even skin tone. Moringa oil is suitable for all skin types.
