In October 2018 Andrea Elisabeth Rudolph went to Brazil to follow the harvest of our main ingredient, the acai berry. Read on and get to know the long and beautiful journey of Acai Facial Oil from berry on an acai palm tree to a final product on your bathroom shelf.
The acai harvest
Deep within the rainforest of Amazonas the acai berries grow wildly in the shade of the rainforest’s palm trees. Rudolph care collaborates with more than 200 local families in the rain forest who year after year harvest the acai for us. On Andrea’s trips to Brazil not only has she created a special bond with the families, the collaboration is also a link in the preservation of the rain forest - the lungs of the Earth. We’re extremely proud to take part in this collaboration. Shimmying high up the trunks with bare hands and a small sack wrapped around their feet, once a year the locals carefully handpick the berries and place them into baskets. One liter of acai oil is extracted from approximately 3 baskets of berries.
