Pine Heartwood – A Gift from the Nature
The long-living Bristlecone Pines of California live up to 4,000 years and older. They are older than the pyramids and reach an altitude of 3,300 meters. “Paradoxically, the pines get so old because they continually cope with the adverse growing conditions,“ said Patti Wells, a botanist with the U.S. Forest Service. Pine wood is very resinous and thus a good protection against fungi and insects. But even insects use this plant‘s defensive advantage. Swiss researchers found evidence that ants arm themselves with small pieces of resin for protection against bacteria and fungi, greatly increasing their survival rate. Birds and bees also use the resin to seal their nests.
Based on these health effects, various products have recently been developed by the Wilms® company which use the germ- and fungi-killing effect for people. The skin care product Wilms® PineGold, uses the active ingredients and the strength of the wood to care for the skin and to alleviate various skin ailments.
Pine heartwood kills bacteria and germs quickly and thoroughly. This phenomenon has existed over millions of years in nature and was perfected to help trees to survive. The Wilms entrepreneurs say that, „The strong germ-reducing properties of the wood have been known for centuries. We should take advantage of these positive qualities!“
