Using only organic and pure ingredients in this amazing botanical skin science, I was so lucky to be able to try the Acai Berry Active Antioxidant Serum. The first thing I noticed when I opened the bottle was the amazing scent, I love berries, I love the taste, I love the fragrance and when I applied this serum the natural scent just had me right there. When I looked at the ingredients I could see why, it contains Amazonian Acai Berry fruit oil, cranberry and blackberry seed oils, so along with the beautiful natural fragrance this also packs a pretty big punch when it comes to treating my skin with powerful anti-aging antioxidants and vitamins.
On top of this, the serum contains Olive Squalene, Olive Squalene is a plant active derived from the olive pip, which has a molecular structure comparable to our skin.
Up until now I didn’t realise how important Olive Squalene was for anti-aging. It has the ability to cancel out the cell damaging effects of free radicals including ultraviolet light from the sun. It has been clinically proven to increase skin’s moisture levels by up to 50%.
Everyone is born with Squalene in their skin. From as early as 25 years of age the Squalene production in our skin decreases, resulting in the dehydration that leads to fine lines, wrinkles and premature ageing.
So now you see how important it is to keep the squalene in our skin replenished!
Unlike mineral oils, squalene is non greasy, so when it’s added into a product like this, it’s the perfect serum to apply before make-up, as it absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave any oily residue.
The main ingredient, Acai Berry is an antioxidant powerhouse. In skincare formulations, it can help protect the skin from environmental aggressors and delay the appearance of aging.
Another interesting and effective ingredient is Bisabolol, an anti-infalmmatory derived from the German Chamomile flower. It helps to calm irritated skin, which is very good for sun damage, sun burn and healing scars.
I loved using this serum, I used it morning and night. It left my skin feeling perfectly moisturised and silky soft. I felt as though it really penetrated into the fine lines in my skin, it felt very luxurious.
