Why do we love Acai?

Why do we love Acai?

There's no denying that we love Acai in smoothies, but at Essano™ we love it in our oil too! Why?

Acai Berry is one of nature's super-foods, but it also has a multitude of skin care benefits. For example – did you know that Acai Berry is often found in skin brightening products since it is a potent form of Vitamin C? Yep - it's a pretty powerful little berry!

So what exactly is the Acai Berry you might ask? Despite being relatively new to the world of skin care, this delicious little berry has actually been around for thousands of years. It was first discovered in the Amazon Rainforest when Brazilian natives noticed it boosted their energy when eaten regularly – in fact they loved it so much they nicknamed this super fruit the “Beauty Berry” because it has so many compounds that make the body both feel and look better from the inside out.

We love to use it in our Rosehip Oil because it

  • Promotes healthy skin cells resulting in a smooth and glowing complexion
  • Reduces inflammation, the ingredient is frequently recommended to those who suffer
    from acne
  • Improves elasticity and the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles (it has a lot of good fatty acids including linoleic acid, omega-3 and omega-6)
