Açaí Berry is a small, round, black-purple fruit about 1 inch in circumference, similar in appearance to a grape, but smaller and with less pulp and produced in branched clusters of 500 to 900 fruits.
Acai palms are found throughout the Amazon basin and are particularly abundant in the eastern region. It is one of the most common palms of the state of Pará, and dominates the landscape, sometimes in almost pure stands. Açaí prefers flooded and wetland areas and easily regenerates. Acai also needs a second canopy that provides shade, preventing people from cutting the taller trees in the region.
The local and indigenous river people in the Amazon forest have been consuming acai berries for hundreds of years and it can make up to 80% of their diet. With the flourishing popularity, the commerce of the fruit has become the main source of income for many families and most of the acai that comes from Brazil is wildharvested and fair traded.
Acai Berry Oil is expensive, part because of its popularity and also because the extraction of the açaí oil corresponds to only 1% of the volume of the fruits, which is very low.

As importantly, the Acai fruit is rich in anthocyanins and phenols, which are powerful antioxidants. It is no secret that Vitamin C is essential for helping to rejuvenate and revitalize your skin. Research shows that the content of anthocyanins is reported to be an astounding 10-30 times higher than the anthocyanin content of red wine grapes. Studies have also shown that the phenols in Acai Berry Oil may help destroy and protect against cancer cell formation.
