Acai oil (Euterpe oleracea) 10 ml
Our organically produced unrefined Acai oil is obtained from the small, dark purple Acai palm berries, also known as the Assai Palm, a type of palm tree originating in Brazil and other regions of South and Central America.
The small berries have been bred for generations by local and indigenous river people in the Amazon rainforest for the healing and stimulating nutrition that Acai berries provide as an edible fruit and its nourishing oil.
The acai fruit actually contains a truly amazing nutritional profile with a combination of omega-3, omega-6, and omega-9 essential fatty acids that support cell structure, phytosterols, vitamins like B1, B2, B3, E, and C, minerals like phosphorus, calcium, and potassium and essential amino acids.
More importantly, the acai fruit is rich in anthocyanins and phenols, which are potent antioxidants. Acai oil is a very light oil that is easily absorbed without leaving a greasy feeling and leaving the skin deeply hydrated.
