Product Description & Benefits:
This dark purple fruit that grows in the Brazilian Amazon is the new health craze, and it is nice to see a craze that has scientific evidence to support it. The fruit pulp is rich in polyphenols that reduce proliferation of cancer cells. It has a high antioxidant capacity and scavenges dangerous free radicals, especially peroxyl radicals. Anthocyanins are responsible for the deep purple color.

What's Do It Yourself (DIY) Skin Care?
DIY Skin Care is an emerging trend in the beauty world where consumers are taking control of their skin care regimen and are making their own home-based recipes of skincare products by combining scientifically proven active ingredients inside creams. DIY presents an opportunity to create affordable beauty products at your home and to try different ingredients to arrive at recipes that are the most optimal for your skin needs. You can use DIY to simply copy well-known, expensive creams and make your own cheaper home version, or to combine your favorite cream with an ingredient that you've found to be beneficial.
