Kakadu Plum extract is a natural active, compound containing one of the highest sources of Vitamin C, packed with powerful polyphenols and their derivatives. Kakadu plum (also known as Gubinge, Billygoat Plum or Murunga) is a native tree from Australia, the fruit is wild harvested by indigenous communities exclusively in the Kimberleys, Northern territory and Arnhem land.

Other than being a native Australian extract, why is Kakadu Plum so good for our skin? The key actives and benefits* of Kakadu Plum include:

  • Pure Active Vitamin C – protects from damaging free radicals, potent antioxidant, photo-protection from UV A and B damaging light, stimulates the growth of collagen reducing fine lines and wrinkles, reduces skin redness, improves skin hydration and reduces coloured pigmentation of skin.
  • Gallic Acid – anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, anti-fungal, wound-healing (this is sometimes used in the healing of psoriasis).
  • Ellagic Acid – anti-inflammatory, encourages skin elasticity and suppleness in aged skin, skin-whitening agent. 

*It’s important to note that everyone’s skin is different and for any serious skin concerns a dermatologist should be consulted.
