What it is
Acai (pronounced “ah-sigh-ee”) is a purple colored berry produced by the acai palm.
What it does
Acai contains ferulic acid and epicatechin, which have antioxidant properties that help fight ageing.
However, research on acai is limited and so far there isn’t proof that, apart from being a potent antioxidant, acai provides any other benefits to the skin when applied topically.
Acai is generally considered safe.
