Camu-camu berries, which are native to the Amazon region, are red/purple cherry like fruits, that grows submerged under water in the Amazon River banks. The berries contain about 30 times the amount of vitamin C found in oranges. They're also rich in Ellagic Acid, an antioxidant that can help protect skin against free radicals. Camu camu is also packed with other vitamins and minerals including iron, niacin, riboflavin, phosphorus, potassium, beta-carotene, calcium, and amino acids. To summarise, Camu camu berries are a superfood for the face.

The extraordinarily high Vitamin C content makes Camu camu extremely suitable for nutraceutical purposes due to its antioxidant and immune system stimulating properties. Ascorbic acid plays a key role in muscle, skin, and bone development and regeneration, in collagen production, in the regulation of body temperature and in the production of several hormones. Camu Camu Extract can help increase skin luminosity while mitigating the signs of fatigue induced by a busy lifestyle such as dark rings under the eyes, dark spots, wrinkles, skin sensitivity while increasing skin brightening. The ingredient can be added to a variety of skin and hair care formulations, including sunscreens, anti-aging lotions, serums, shampoos and conditioners.
