Kakadu Plum Unleashed
We’re lucky to have Kakadu Plum, a gem from the Australian wild, infused in our skincare collection. This magic ingredient, scientifically known as Terminalia ferdinandiana or "billy goat plum," is the unsung hero in the skincare narrative.
Known to Indigenous Australians for over 60,000 years as a potent food and medicine, Kakadu Plum is now stepping into the limelight. Rich in over 3000mg of Vitamin C per 100g of fruit, compared to 50mg/100g found in oranges. It’s a marvel of nature that supports collagen production, combating wrinkles, and those tell-tale signs of aging.
The Kakadu plum is also referred to as Terminalia ferdinandiana or "billy goat plum. It is an organic fruit native to Australia and is recognised as one of the world's top sources of Vitamin C.
The First Nations Australians have long eaten it as "bush food," but it is now harvested in large quantities to meet the rising demand. Kakadu plum is about half an inch (1.5-2 cm) long, pale greenish with a stone in the centre, and weighs between 0.1 and 0.2 ounces. It is commonly found in plenty of cosmetic and medical items.
Kakadu fruit resembles a plum and is salty to taste. This superfood was known only to indigenous Australians for many years. Traditionally it was used as a food and medicine for over 60,000 years. It is found mainly in the Northern parts of Australia.
The Protective Shield
When you bring Kakadu Plum into your skincare routine, you’re signing up for a defense squad against free radicals, thanks to its rich antioxidant profile. It’s like having an invisible shield guarding your skin against the ravages of environmental stressors.
The Kakadu Advantage
So, what makes Kakadu Plum stand out?
Kakadu plum juice or Kakadu plum extract is a multipurpose active component that strengthens antioxidant defences, improves skin brightness, causes skin brightening, and decreases the appearance of wrinkles.
- Reduce Irritation and Acne
People with sensitive skin or those who suffer from skin conditions like eczema and acne should use it as the plum extract aids in eradicating acne-causing germs from the face. Its antioxidant properties help against redness and irritation. Additionally, it prevents acne from developing in the future and helps people suffering from rosacea.
- Minimise the appearance of wrinkles
Kakadu Plum extract has anti-aging properties as it boosts the collagen which boosts skin elasticity. Minimises wrinkles around the eyes because of its antioxidant properties and Vitamin C content. It also helps to fade hyperpigmentation. It is said to be safe around eyes where fine wrinkles appear
- Skin Hydration
The protein called collagen makes up almost 75% of the dry weight of human skin. Vitamin C, zinc, and collagen peptides greatly reduce skin roughness and dehydration. Kakadu plums, which are crucial for the creation of collagen, are abundant in Vitamin C. Kakadu Plum's vitamin C serves as a potent antioxidant that protects the skin, making it a crucial component for rehydrating the skin.
- Improves Skin complexion
The use of Kakadu plum might also be advantageous for people with sensitive skin types or inflammatory skin conditions. Kakadu plum's gallic and ellagic acids revitalise skin. Additionally, using products containing this component will help skin become brighter, lessen sun-induced redness, and enhance overall skin tone. It can help fade pigmentation, evens out skin tone and texture and restores and renews complexion.
- Mending wounds and boils in the skin
The inner bark of the plum has the ability to treat many skin problems and other skin conditions. Additionally, the bark of this plant is excellent for mending wounds, blisters, and boils. Aside from treating bacterial infections, Kakadu plum bark is also used to treat fungal infections. Psoriasis can also be effectively treated with it. It helps people suffering from rosacea, psoriasis and eczema.
- Even skin-toned
Being phytochemical, they efficiently treat acne-prone skin and aid in the battle against skin infections. As a result, including the plum extract in your skincare routine will help eliminate the bacteria that causes pimples, giving you smoother, more even-toned skin. It is good for acne-prone skin due to its anti-inflammatory and non comedogenic (does not clog pores) properties.
- Increased elasticity of the skin
Due to the presence of Gallic and Ellagic acids, it performs antibacterial and anti fungal activities. Ellagic acid increases the skin's elasticity, and gallic acid strengthens the skin's built-in barrier defences.
The plum extract does not clog the pores of the skin. Clogged pores are one of the main causes of acne cosmetica, or product acne, such as blackheads, whiteheads, and pimples, which occur when debris gets stuck beneath your skin and creates inflammation. By minimising the amount of substances on your skin that can clog your pores with debris, plum extract can help you avoid breakouts of acne. Additionally, it also reduces excessive oil production for those with oily skin.
Kakadu Plum is not just an ingredient; it’s a skin transformation journey. Its gallic and ellagic acids are like the dynamic duo fighting against redness and irritation, making it a haven for sensitive skin. The plum extract’s non-comedogenic nature ensures your pores stay happy, free, and clear of breakouts.
Our Kakadu Plum infused skincare is a step towards radiant, resilient, and revitalised skin. It’s not just a product; it’s an experience - a journey through the Australian wild, bringing the ancient secrets of indigenous wisdom to your modern skincare routine.
