What Acai Berry Can do for Your Skin

Updated on March 12, 2011

Many people have heard of the benefits that Acai berry can offer in terms of weight los, detoxification, and disease prevention, but the benefits of Acai berry in terms of skin care are much lesser known. Acai oil is now widely used by many beauty products and cosmetics manufacturers. It is favored as a base for lotions and skin care creams for many reasons. Manufacturers like that it is not only affordable and has a long shelf-life, but also that it can withstand heat and moisture and is concentrated with high levels of antioxidants.

It is the antioxidants contained in Acai berry that are the most beneficial to humans. When used in skin care creams and cosmetics, these antioxidants help reduce the effects of UV rays, prevent common skin infections like acne, and enable skin cells to absorb more moisture. Antioxidants have also been proven effective at preventing wrinkles and reducing the signs of aging. 

The most popular uses for Acai berry oil in cosmetics and beauty care products is anti-aging creams and sunscreens. When added to regular cosmetics, Acai berry oil also works as a natural sunscreen. The sun’s rays can greatly deplete levels of moisture in the skin. Those who are exposed to the sun for several hours per day are also more likely to develop skin cancer and see visible signs of aging much sooner. Acai berry oils found in some cosmetics helps block UV rays and prevent sun damage to cells.

The best part about the use of Acai berry in cosmetics for many consumers is that it is all-natural. For many years, cosmetics companies have been using dangerous petrochemicals and synthetic ingredients in beauty products and anti-aging compounds. Recently, there has been intense pressure on these manufacturers to come up with safe products that meet consumer safety standards. Many beauty products contain not only known carcinogens produced as byproducts of petroleum engineering, but also trace amounts of lead.

Using all-natural ingredients like Acai berry provides a sound, eco-friendly alternative for many of these companies and gives consumers peace of mind. To date, there are only a handful of cosmetics companies that have introduced products that contain Acai oil, but many more have announced that they are experimenting with the product in order to offer better products for consumers. It is only a matter of time before Acai berry and other natural ingredients will be more widely used in skin care products for people of all ages.
