Acerola, also known as the Barbados cherry or West Indian cherry, is a small, bright red fruit native to the tropical regions of the Americas, especially the Caribbean. Its history of use spans centuries, with indigenous peoples valuing it not just for its taste but also for its medicinal properties. Acerola stands out for its exceptionally high vitamin C content, surpassing that of many other fruits, including oranges. This rich source of vitamin C plays a pivotal role in its health benefits: it can boost the immune system, aid in iron absorption, and act as a potent antioxidant to combat free radicals in the body. For the skin, vitamin C from acerola can be transformative. Topically applied, it can help combat signs of aging by promoting collagen production, brightening skin, and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, its antioxidative properties help shield the skin from environmental stressors like UV rays and pollution, making acerola-infused skincare products increasingly sought after for their rejuvenating benefits.


Nourishe uses the latest skincare ingredient science in our formulation process, and we choose ingredients that we believe in and that are shown to be safe and effective. However, we cannot make a particular claim about a particular product just because an ingredient is contained in that product, even if that ingredient has been proven to show certain benefits. Therefore, any claims made on the ingredient pages cannot be automatically assumed to be applicable to products containing those ingredients. In addition, all of the information on our ingredient pages comes from a variety of sources across the internet. We have done our best to compile this for your benefit, but we cannot guarantee the information on these pages is accurate.
