The Açai Palm, also known as the Assai Palm, is a species of palm trees native to Brazil and other regions of South and Central America. The Acai Palm bears small, dark purple berries that each contain one large seed. The small berries have been prized for generations by local tribes for the healing and energizing sustenance that they provide both as an edible fruit and nutritive oil.
“We get excited about finding new, exotic, skin-nourishing ingredients. The rich array of nutrients present in our organic açai berry oil and its impressive ability to moisturize the skin make it a superb choice for a wide range of skin care products,” said Chief Executive Officer Kibby Mitra. “This natural emollient is particularly well suited for use on mature, dry, damaged or problem skin. Acai Berry Oil is an exceptional source of antioxidants and essential nutrients, which work together to nourish and protect the skin from moisture loss while minimizing the appearance of fine lines, revealing a more radiant complexion.”
