Because camu camu has 30 times more vitamin C than an orange…
Native to the Amazon region, the camu camu berry is a legit little-known GEM. I found out about a year ago that this little berry contains THIRTY TIMES the vitamin C than an orange and it’s also really amazing at protecting the skin against free radicals. Boom. Here are a few of my favorite camu camu-packed beauty products (and one you can eat)…
Found Camu Camu Gel Cleanser: This gentle gel cleanser is 99% natural and helps brighten dark spots and uneven skin tone! I’m pretty picky about my cleansers but I have to say this one is pretty fantastic, and a great price to boot.
Peter Thomas Roth Camu Camu Power C X 30 Vitamin C Brightening Sleeping Mask: You guys know I love a good sleeping mask and this one not only brightens your skin, but it also hydrates your skin while you get some zzzs.
Plantioxidants Camu Camu & Turmeric Scrub + Mask: When I saw that this scrub/mask has not only camu camu but also turmeric, I was sold (see my post about turmeric here). The product does a great job at exfoliating and buffing away any bumps, flakes and dullness you might have…plus it’s formulated with an additional 21 plant antioxidants!
Zint Nutrition Camu Camu: In full disclosure, Zint is my marketing client but after trying out this powder in my smoothies I was SOLD. Camu camu is obviously good for your skin but when you ingest it, it actually helps support a healthy immune system! Made from organic camu camu berries grown in South America, this powder is dried and milled at low temperature to preserve the berries’ natural health benefits. Like I said, I like it in smoothies but you can also add it to juices or sprinkle it over yogurt, ice cream and other healthy snacks. The powder has a deep, tart flavor, with notes of nutmeg, cinnamon, and citrus. #yum.
