New Trending Ingredient: Açaí Oil

Our latest product addition is berry wonderful—we are now a supplier of Açaí Oil! You might have had an açaí bowl as a hearty snack, but this Brazilian superfruit is just as special in oil form.

Açaí oil is extracted from the pulp of the fruit from Euterpe oleracea or the Açaí palm, native to the rainforests of South America. This filtered,  unrefined oil carries a deep blue to dark green hue with a characteristic aroma.

The oil contains high levels of polyphenols, naturally occurring micronutrients. Specifically, it contains anthocyanins and proanthocyanidins, which are believed to carry antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Açaí oil has a high concentration of desired essential omega fatty acids such as linoleic acid, oleic acid, and palmitic acid. It also contains vitamins and nutrients necessary for human health like vitamin E, C, and zinc. Fatty acids and nutrients may hydrate, rejuvenate, and improve skin texture when topically applied. The antioxidant content of polyphenols and vitamin E can protect from further environmental and oxidative damage.

These components of Açaí oil make it a coveted ingredient for soap manufacturing, moisturizers, hair products, and serums. Açaí oil may also be taken in gel capsule form, utilized in food and beverage manufacturing, or used as an ingredient in dressings and sauces.
