INGREDIENT SPOTLIGHT: Camu Camu Extract

by Tami McCarthy |

 

Found in the Amazon Rainforest, Camu Camu berries, which are about the size of red grapes, contain the highest natural form of Vitamin C on the planet.

I've recently been doing a lot of personal events, whether at charity fundraisers, farmers markets, or in-store appearances to talk about where natural skincare is headed. I love meeting women and discussing the many ways they can empower themselves with a simple routine that works naturally and effectively while using only a few products that are loaded with natural and organic ingredients.

In all of these encounters, I'm always struck by women who ask, "Is natural really better or as effective as conventional skincare products?" And my emphatic answer is, of course, YES!

That's because high-quality, high-integrity plant-based skincare products have higher concentrations of active ingredients that penetrate down to the cellular level of your skin.

For example, take Camu Camu extract. It's one of the most powerful antioxidants in the world, found in the tropical rainforest -- the small berries are at least 30 times more potent than oranges, and are packed with benefits that are good for your skin. This recent article in Elle UK highlights the top 4:  

  • Fights Pigmentation Fast
  • Provides Fantastic Environmental Protection
  • No Filter Needed: Get Your Glow Back Naturally
  • Helps Erase Fine Lines + Wrinkles

That means flawless, happy skin can be yours when you use products with high concentrations of camu camu. One of our best sellers is our Age-Defying Botanical Facial Elixir, and for good reason.  This is skin-loving magic in a bottle! It's 95% organic, and loaded with not just Camu Camu but an amazing line-up of superstar natural ingredients, each one chosen for its specific anti-aging properties.
