The Skin Benefits Of Kakadu Plum
You are probably thinking “Yet another weird-sounding and obscure
ingredient that is invading skin care products, but like all other fads it will
soon be gone and forgotten.’ Well, the case with Kakadu Plum is different.
Let’s start with a short quiz, shall we?
Do you know which fruit is the world’s
richest source of vitamin C?
The correct answer is: none of the above.
richest source of vitamin C is (drumroll please) – Kakadu plum
. 100gr of this
small sour fruit contain 3000mg of vitamin C, or 55 times more than the amount
found in 100gr of oranges. Impressive, isn’t it?
Kakadu plum became popular among skin care
manufacturers only recently, but the Aboriginal peoples of northern Australia,
where this fruit grows natively, have used it for centuries – both as food and
medicine. In fact, astonished by its many benefits, the Aborigines have always
considered it a gift from the sacred Dreamtime.

Plum Has Anti-Inflammatory Properties
Apart from its high vitamin C content, Kakadu
plum is rich in gallic acid and ellagic acids – natural acids that have potent antiseptic
properties. Topical application of products formulated with Kakadu plum can help supress the growth of acne-causing bacteria and reduce inflammation.
Kakadu plum brings an instant relief to people
who have sensitive skin – it soothes rashes and restores skin’s natural lipid
barrier. Recent studies suggest that Kakadu plum can be very effective even in
treatment of serious skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema.
Kakadu Plum Prevents Premature Aging
As we all know, antioxidants protect our skin from environmental factors, such as UV rays and pollution, by neutralizing
cell-damaging free radicals. They protect us from premature aging and help keep
our skin youthful, which makes them essential part of our skin care routine.
Since Kakadu plum is the fruit with the highest content of vitamin C (let’s
emphasize it one more time), it acts as natural shield against free radicals,
preserving your skin’s health. As
mentioned in the previous paragraph, Kakadu plums contain other less known antioxidants
like gallic acid (restores the skin’s natural barrier), ellagic acid (maintains
skin’s elasticity) and traces of vitamin E, zinc, iron, folate, and lutein. A
truly nourishing cocktail for your skin!

Kakadu plum will give you a brighter and more even complexion and will keep
