The Superfood for your skin
You know if your skincare products contain Vitamin E or Aloe Vera that you’re on to a good thing, but Australia offers a diverse range of gorgeous flora and fruits and vegetables that serve as fantastic natural ingredients, such as our beloved Kakadu Plum, packed with Vitamin C, folic acid, iron and antioxidants!
What is Kakadu Plum?
While Kakadu Plum has been staple bush tucker for many centuries within Indigenous communities in the Northern Territory Western Australia, it’s still largely unknown by many of us urban dwellers. It’s our bet though that as more people become conscious of the ingredients used in foods and products, this superfood will be super news in no time!
Kakadu Plum, also known as Gubinge, Billygoat or Murunga, is a small yellow coloured native fruit which has been praised for its powerful levels of Vitamin C – in fact at more than 50 times higher levels than oranges, it’s been named the most Vitamin C rich source in the world!
Benefits of Kakadu Plum in skincare
With naturally occurring healing properties, Kakadu Plum has long been used for medicinal purposes, and is a popular ingredient in cosmetics. See why we chose to include Kakadu Plum in our botanicES natural caffeine skincare range…
- Reduces wrinkles and improves skin texture – the Vitamin C component of Kakadu Plum helps to fight radicals at a cellular level, which can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Combined with the naturally occurring collagen properties also found in Kakadu Plum, those fine lines and wrinkles can look visibly finer.
- Anti-ageing properties – thanks to its strong Folic Acid levels, your skin will be left looking and feeling softer, smoother and glowing.
- Reduces acne – if your skin is prone to acne or pimple breakouts, this is the ingredient to be using! It detoxifies skin fighting off pimple-causing bacteria, and can reduce the appearance of acne scarring.
- Reduces puffy eyes – its anti-inflammatory properties means you can say goodbye to puffy and swollen looking skin!
- Bright, glowing skin – correct the appearance of dark circles, pigmentation and age spots with skincare products containing Kakadu Plum. Suitable for all skin types, Kakadu Plum is great for providing a radiance boost!
