Camu is considered a superfruit and has the highest vitamin C content of any food in the world, more than both oranges and acai. The fruit has a deep, dramatic color that ranges from red to almost black when ripe.

Its high vitamin C content makes the fruit an excellent remedy for many health conditions, as vitamin C supports immunity, wound healing and regenerates antioxidants in the body, to name just a few of its benefits.

·
Written by Jene Roestorf
For those with both sensitive and blemish-prone skin, trust us, we know how difficult it can be to successfully remedy this. The trouble, for the most part, lies in the fact that sensitive skin is innately more fragile and requires special care, but common methods to eradicate acne often lead to dryness, further sensitization and, ultimately, even more breakouts. It’s a vicious cycle that is hard to know how to break, annoyingly frustrating and quite frankly upsetting.
