Camu camu (Myrciaria dubia) is a fruit tree found in the Amazon rainforest that grows cherry-like berries that are jam-packed with all kinds of powerful antioxidants — most importantly, vitamin C. Niacin, another skin care lover’s favorite, is also included in camu camu, as well as flavonoid antioxidants including ellagic acids and anthocyanins.
Benefits: Because it stimulates the synthesis of new collagen production and as a result, minimizes the appearance of deep wrinkles and fine lines. It also helps reduce hyperpigmentation and protects the skin from UV damage.
Skin Types: Camu Camu is suitable for all skin types. In rare cases, people who have hypersensitive skin may suffer from minor irritation.
