What is Açaí Oil?
The Açai (E. oleracea) is a palm tree that grows 15 to 25 m in height. It often takes 4-5 years to start producing an edible berry-like fruit that grows in bunches 1-2 cm in diameter, with a single large seed inside surrounded by stringy fibrous sheaths and a thin oily coating. The fruit begins as a green color and ripens to a dark purple. Each tree stem usually produces four to eight bunches of fruit that normally yields, on average, 24 kgs of fruit annually.
It requires around 200 kilograms of the pulp to produce one liter of Acai oil.
There is also low quality Acai oil, which is pressed from the dry seeds of the berry after pulp is removed for making juice. This oil is brownish in color and carries none of the nutrients found in the green rich oil cold pressed from fresh pulp.
The authentic and most beneficial Acai oil is cold-pressed from the berry with pulp and skin and yields a very dark greenish oil exceptionally rich in chlorophyll and plenty of vitamins, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory properties. The oil has became one of the most prized ingredients for products intended to address aged skin with sensitivities.
