Fruits of tropical palm Euterpe oleraceae, known as the acai berries, are known for their high antioxidant activity. The presence of natural antioxidants in acai berries in two times more than blueberries, 10 times more than grapes and 33 times more than in natural red wine. Experiments with lyophilized (dried method for moisture freezing) powder from the pulp and peel fruit acai has shown that acai has activity similar to the activity of the enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD), successfully neutralizing superoxide anions of oxygen - one of the most dangerous forms of free radicals involved in the process skin aging and the development of tumors. SOD-like activity of acai berries was much higher than that of all other known foods, including other fruits and berries.

Interesting that among antioxidants acai berries have been identified "quick" antioxidants, which come into effect immediately after you add them to the cell culture, and the "slow", which penetrated into the cell unchanged. The "slow" antioxidants were able to suppress the formation of free radicals inside the cell itself and were effective even in very low concentrations. In the same study were confirmed anti-inflammatory properties of acai berries and their ability to inhibit the formation of certain inflammatory mediators without affecting the functioning of the cells. 

These studies formed the basis for the use of acai berries in cosmetics. The presence of oil or extract of acai berries in cosmetics provides a rejuvenating effect on the cells of our body, which contributes to the fresh and young skin look.
