Acai berries come from the acai palm tree that is native to Central and South America, particularly the Amazon rain forest in Brazil.
There are various components in acai that work to delay the appearance of ageing on the skin. It is a very resistant oil in that it retains its high antioxidant effectiveness in skin care formulations. Using it every day will likely protect your skin against damage and environmental free radicals, keeping cells healthy and the skin's structure strong.
Acai has an anti-inflammatory effect, which can help tame redness and swelling. It is also a good source of Vitamin C, which is known to protect and fortify skin, as well as the B vitamins and several minerals. Because of these nutrients, it may be seen to help heal skin disorders like psoriasis and eczema. Acai is also rich in vitamin E, which helps rejuvenate skin.
Acai contains omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids that help skin appear youthful and supple and promotes the production of collagen and elastin to improve skin elasticity. Fatty acids keep skin cells moist and strong, helping to fight off wrinkles and dry, dull skin. If you're getting enough, your skin looks smooth and soft. If you're not, skin dries out, sags and becomes dull.
Our new Acai, Pomegranate and Jasmine Body Lotion is a fantastic edition to our range, which will give your entire body the benefits of Acai oil. We will be releasing a BioActive face oil based on Acai that will be available in the near future.
