Acai Oil

Acai berries grow on a palm tree in the Amazon Rainforest. Botanically known as Euterpe oleracea (try saying that three times fast), acai oil extracted from these fruits offers many benefits as an addition to your beauty and skin care regiment. 

You may have heard already that acai fruit is high in antioxidants – the very compounds that fight the ill effects of aging.  The little berry is also a powerhouse of minerals and vitamins that support your immune system and deter your risk of chronic ailments. When you extract the oil from this berry, it retains all those healing attributes.

Various cosmetic manufacturers have begun adding acai oil to all manner of products. You can find it in makeup, skin cream, lotion, facial masks, and even treatment for strengthening, moisturizing and nourishing hair. The specific nutrient list is pretty impressive.  Start with Vitamin B1, B2, B3, copious amounts of Vitamin E and Vitamin C. Add in potassium, phosphorus, iron and calcium. That’s quite a mix, particularly if you have dry ends that are fragile and break. Get those trimmed off, and start acai rinses to keep your hair healthy, full and shiny.

When used on your skin the Vitamin E content supports healthy, new skin growth while feeding your skin with Omega 6 and 9 fatty acids. This in turn decreases fine lines and wrinkles because it’s preserving collagen and providing on-going moisture that your skin craves.

Many spas are now adding acai oil products to their lush pamperings. They trust in acai’s ability to improve skin appearance. Try an acai oil mask or cleansing cream. You can do it at home without the cost of the spa using trusted, tested products. Many people report nearly immediate results in how their skin feels and looks.

These results aren’t terribly surprising since the studies done on acai oil have been impressive. They indicate that acai has even more antioxidant power than cranberries and mango! Workers gently gather the berries by hand to avoid bruising then the oil is cold-pressed out of them.  This pure oil goes into various preparations suited to fighting wrinkles the effects of UV exposure 


If you have sensitive skin, do a spot test first just to be safe. Most people prefer acai oil products for sensitive skin particularly when combined with other moisturizing or healing components that naturally help the skin recuperate from everything it encounters daily. 

While you’re at it, consider an acai berry supplement as part of your diet. This way you can treat your skin and hair from inside and outside to the best possible care.
