Acai CollectionSm Açaí, the Brazilian berry, touted as an antioxidant-laden superfood, is plopped in smoothies, tonics and -- now -- skin care.

The Amazonian purple fruit lands on high-end beauty counters as the main ingredient in Kiehl’s new Açaí Damage-Repairing Skincare Collection.

If eaten, Açaí, which comes from a palm tree, has 10 to 30 times the antioxidants found in red wine and grapes, which include Vitamins A, C, E, Beta Carotene, Carotenids, Polyphenols. Flavinoids and Anthrocyanins. The berry also contains healthful monosaturated fats (similar to those found in olive oil) along with amino acids.

Kiehl’s found in consumer testing that Açaí’s antioxidant properties also work on skin by neutralizing free radicals from oxidizing and combating against signs of sun damage by reducing fine lines and wrinkles through tightening skin.

The Açaí Damage-Repairing Skincare Collection comes as a cleanser ($24.10), toning mist ($26) and moisturizer ($44) that are all paraben-free. The Açaí Damaging-Repairing Serum ($48) contains 10% of Açaí berry extract, the highest concentration of all the products.

And not that you would be tempted to dribble this skincare collection in your Robek’s smoothie but Kiehl's Açaí Damage-Repairing Skincare Collection is certified organic by Ecocert, a French company that certifies cosmetics.
