From the Amazon to Denmark
The wild açai berries that grow wild in the Amazon Rainforest are the little beating hearts of Rudolph Care and the leading lady in many of our products.
Açai is extremely rich in vitamins, minerals and Omega 6 and 9, which are essential fatty acids. The unique feature of the berry is its high concentration of antioxidants that have an exceptional revitalizing and protective effect on the skin.
For more than ten years, Rudolph Care has worked closely with a local community in the Amazon consisting of 150 families who harvest the berries for us.
Açai berries grow in clusters on the most beautiful palm trees in the shadow of the humid and lush Brazilian rainforest. The berries grow and ripen until they turn a characteristic dark purple. For generations, the local population in the Amazon has regarded açai berries as a natural source of energy and their annual harvest of the precious berries is a big event.
The harvest step by step
Every year in September and October, the berry pickers sail along narrow inland waterways deep into the jungle where the best and most valuable berries grow in the crowns of the palm trees in the shadow of the rainforest. The local pickers climb up the açai palm trunk with a small sack wound like rope around their feet to hand-pick the berries which they collect in baskets.
The berries are transported by river to ports nearby and then to our local partner who extracts and refines the oil from the açai berries
The raw ingredient is shipped to our producer in Denmark where it is transformed into finished Rudolph Care products.
