Beautiful Extracts: Camu Camu
What is Camu Camu Extract?
Camu Camu is a small sour berry that is native to the Amazon region. The richest botanical source of vitamin C, it is teeming with polyphenols (flavonoids, phenolic acids, tannins, stilbenes, and lignans), anthocyanin, and a range of other bioactive compounds. The phenolic content is higher than in other tropical fruits, with a higher concentration in its seeds and peel.
Camu Camu Extract captures the most potent compounds of this superfood and brings it to your table and into your skincare products to give you wellness from within and to powerfully rejuvenate your skin. A stupendous source of antioxidants like ellagic acid, it is teeming with minerals like niacin, iron, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, and amino acids.
What is Camu Camu Extract used for?
The benefits that arise from a powerful nutritional profile like Camu Camu run across the board. Internal consumption of Camu Camu Extract, complementing a healthy diet, helps your body fight off the degeneration associated with free radical damage. This can reduce the risk of developing cancers, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s, arthritis, and macular degeneration.
The high vitamin C content can lower cortisol levels, improving your mood, and reducing fat storage, helping in weight loss. A natural detoxifier, vitamin C can also support liver function, improving the overall health of your body by flushing out toxins. It has anti-inflammatory properties which relax blood vessels and support better circulation and blood pressure. The manganese content reduces the risk of diabetes.
When it comes to your skin, Camu Camu extract is literally a God send. High in both Vitamin C and Niacin, it has the ability to inhibit melanin producing cells. This can help fade age spots, discolorations caused by acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, and spots caused by sun damage, giving way to a clear, blemish-free, even, and flawless complexion. It boosts skin radiance by improving cell turnover and sloughing off dead skin cells, giving you a glowing complexion.
With its high antioxidant content, Camu Camu Extract is a potent ingredient for anti-aging skin formulas. It visibly boosts collagen synthesis and production. This helps restore skin elasticity and makes skin plumper. It reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, making your skin appear more youthful. It protects against free radical damage and environmental stressors, making your skin more resilient and radiant as well.
