There's a new ingredient making quite a buzz in the health, beauty and wellness world and it's called Acai (pronounced ah-sigh-ee). This teensy deep plum-colored berry contains serious amounts of antioxidants, phytonutrients, amino acids, fiber and beneficial fatty acids (omegas 3, 6 and 9) to keep your skin looking healthy, your immune system strong and your body's vitality and energy levels high.
The acai berry comes from a group of palms located in Central and South America and are known to be among of the most nutritious foods found in the Amazon. (It's also a pretty tasty treat when mixed up in smoothies!)
Cosmetics companies like Tarte have already begun to include acai to their list of good-for-your-skin-ingredients, and Fresh is coming out with a new Sugar Acai Age Delay Body Cream soon. So be on the lookout for this new berry that's making its sweet debut on the beauty scene.
