We celebrate Australia’s indigenous culture by incorporating the Kakadu plum (Terminalia ferdinandiana) into our signature formula. For thousands of years, Kakadu plums have been used for their medicinal and health benefits. From March to June, local people harvest and consume Kakadu plums. They’re energizing and thirst-quenching. Kakadu plums taste tangy with a delightful aroma of stewed apple and pears.
The Kakadu plum has exceptional nutritional value and antiseptic properties. They’re a rich source of Vitamin C, Vitamin E, iron and ellagic acid. They have the highest recorded levels of Vitamin C compared to any fruit in the world. It measures up to 50 times the Vitamin C content found in oranges.
Stimulates Collagen Production
The human body doesn’t produce its own Vitamin C. It relies on obtaining Vitamin C through nutritional and topical applications. Vitamin C stimulates collagen production and neutralizes free radicals. Because Kakadu plums have high levels of Vitamin C and ellagic acid, they are a powerful source of antioxidant and play a vital role in collagen synthesis. Daily use of a Vitamin C facial serum will ensure that your skin soaks up the perks of this powerful ingredient.
Cosmetically applying ingredients with ellagic acid has been shown to be effective in treating wrinkles and inflammation. It helps protect your skin from oxidative stress caused by UV and the natural aging process. Ellagic acid also inhibits an enzyme that signals collagen breakdown. Together, these properties encourage the improvement of your skin’s elasticity to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Kakadu plum’s bitter and acidic nature means it sloughs away dead skin cells from the skin’s surface, speeding up new cell regeneration. Your skin is then triggered to heal itself by accelerating the production of collagen and elastin. The result is plump, radiant skin.
