Euterpe Oleracea (Acai) Fruit Oil

Home / Ingredient Glossary / Euterpe Oleracea (Acai) Fruit Oil

Organic açaí berry oil is a stunning green lipid that helps maintain optimal skin balance with its impressive antioxidant content and emollient properties. This oil can effectively restore skin elasticity, minimise the appearance of wrinkles and scarring, protect from oxidative stress, visibly even skin tone, mitigate visible signs of inflammatory conditions like acne, and effectively soothe dry, cracked skin.

Açaí is packed with fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, anthocyanins, and polyphenols. Recently, research has shown promise for acaí oil as an inhibitor of melanin biosynthesis (tyrosinase inhibitor). It’s shown effectiveness being used on the treatment of melasma and age spots.1
