Camu Camu Benefits That Are Good For Your Skin

If you’ve never heard of camu camu before, you’re not the only one. This natural skincare ingredient is just beginning to garner attention in the beauty industry, and with good reason: It’s packed full of antioxidants and offers numerous benefits for your skin. Here’s everything you need to know about what camu camu is and what it can do for your skin:

What Is Camu Camu?

Camu camu (Myrciaria Dubia) is a fruit-bearing shrub that grows in flooded or swampy areas of the Peruvian rain forest as well as Brazil, Columbia, and Bolivia. Camu camu is a member of the myrtle family and grows between 6-9 feet tall. It produces small white flowers as well as a cherry-like fruit that is typically red or purple in color. The size of the leaves and fruit varies considerably, as does the height of the tree.
That’s because camu camu contains large amounts of a powerful type of vitamin C called ascorbic acid. In fact, the fresh pulp of camu camu contains about 30 times the amount of vitamin C that the fresh pulp of an orange! Camu camu is also high in antioxidants, flavonoids, and other beneficial compounds. Compared to oranges, it contains 10 times more iron, 3 times more niacin, twice as much riboflavin, and 50% more phosphorus than oranges. The fruit can provide benefits when eaten or when formulated in a topical skincare product, such as our C the World Brightening serum.

Camu Camu Benefits for the Skin

At this point, you are probably wondering what all those beneficial compounds do when they are applied topically to your skin. First of all, camu camu has a brightening effect on the skin. If your skin is looking dull and dehydrated, consistent use of camu camu can make your complexion appear more radiant. Camu camu also has a mild exfoliating effect, helping to banish dry, flaky patches and giving your skin a smoother complexion. With consistent use over time, camu camu may also help to lighten dark spots and hyperpigmentation patches to make your skin tone look more even. Camu camu truly is a powerful, multi-tasking skincare ingredient that deserves to be part of your skincare routine.

How To Use Camu Camu On Your Skin

Fortunately, you can get the benefits of camu camu by using our C the World Brightening serum in your morning or nighttime routine! Before using the serum, cleanse your skin and pat it dry, then apply any toners or facial sprays that you use and allow them to soak in first. Then shake the bottle well and dispense 1-2 drops into your palms or directly on your face, being careful not to touch the dropper to your skin. Rub the serum into your face until fully absorbed, then follow with moisturizer and also sunscreen if you are applying it in the morning. Avoid getting the serum in or near your eyes, and immediately flush them with water if contact occurs.
