Known by the Incas as ‘the tree of life’, schinus molle is a powerful antioxidant. With anti-pollution and purifying properties, it reduces sebum and refines the pores. Additionally, it boosts the hydration of the skin.
Cultivated in the fertile valleys of the Andes at an altitude of 2000 meters, the molle tree’s health benefits are well-known to the Quechua people, who have used it for generations to treat wounds, inflammations and other ailments.
Native Peruvian tree with ancestral medicinal properties
Our schinus molle is cultivated in Suricancha, on the outskirts of Lima and far from the pollution of the city. Our supplier grows the trees in their natural environment, therefore protecting local ecosystems, and they guarantee ethical working conditions for all their employees. Our schinus extract comes from the leaves of the tree, which we recover after they are pruned to be sold as ornamental plants. Our eco-friendly extraction process uses a green, bio-sourced solvent, which is safer for the environment.
