Camu Camu comes from a pristine part of the rainforest. It’s quickly becoming one of the most sought-after vitamin C sources in the world.
To produce our Camu Camu powder, the fresh berries are carefully harvested from a pristine river basin. They are then taken to an organic processing plant where the berries are washed, pulped and dried at low temperatures. The powder is then sifted so that only the smallest, most bio-available particles pass through. The finished product is a 100% pure dehydrated powder with 18 - 20% naturally-occurring vitamin C content.
In Brazil, camu camu is being promoted as a product that untangles and strengthens hair, and protects it from external damage, adding to its shine and vitality. Camu camu is being used in a new line of cosmetics specially recommended for damaged and dull hair that include shampoos, conditioners, hair masques, hair renewal that add body and shine to hair.
The Camu Camu Berry contains powerful phytochemicals, including the amino acids serine, valine, and leucine, and more Vitamin C than any other known plant in the world.
Specifically, the Camu Camu fruit contains 30 to 60 times more Vitamin C than an orange in its fresh state. And it delivers up to 600 TIMES MORE vitamin C than oranges when it’s dried into the powder form that we offer.
Not only that, Camu Camu contains important levels of beta carotene, calcium, iron, niacin, phosphorus, riboflavin and thiamin.
