A Deep Dive Into Kakadu Plum
Posted by Dermatec Skincare on
Did you know ... Kakadu Plum is chock-a-block FULL of Vitamin C!
Another interesting fact, is this super fruit contains the highest recorded levels of Vitamin C of any fruit in the world and is only found in the remote bush of the northwest territory of Australia.
If you're not entirely sure what Vitamin C is... it's an antioxidant, meaning it protects skin cells from damaging free radicals caused by UV exposure or pollutants.
Vitamin C also helps to inhibit melanin production in the skin, which helps to lighten hyperpigmentation, even out skin tone and enhance your skins radiance!
In addition to evening out skin tone, Kakadu Plum helps to reduce wrinkles and fine lines as it contains proline, which is an amino acid that makes collagen.
It's also been known to have above-average antiseptic properties as it contains gallic acid and ellagic acid.
Gallic acid naturally kills bacteria (just like tea-tree) and ellagic acid helps to reduce inflammation.
This makes Kakadu Plum a useful ingredient in also helping clear acne causing bacteria.
Wow, talk about a super fruit! Kakadu Plum is an incredibly powerful ingredient to have in your skincare routine and one that will help to enhance your skin.
