Kakadu Plum (Also known as murunga, gubinge or billygoat plum) is a native Australian fruit historically used by Aboriginal people for its healing properties.
It holds exceptional nutritional and antiseptic properties and has been an important food and medicine in Northern Australia for thousands of years.
The tree sap is used to treat inflammation, whilst the bark is applied to the body to treat infections. burns and rashes.
Kakadu plum is one of the main active ingredients in our hydrating, smoothing and plumping Pure Light Elixir - Vitamin C Day Serum, and it's also active in our Australian Lavender Bliss - Nourishing Hand Cream.
Studies show the Kakadu plum contains the highest recorded levels of Vitamin C (3700 mg per 100g), measuring up to 100x the Vitamin C content found in an orange.
Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that can neutralise free radicals. It evens out skin tone and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Due to its antioxidant properties, vitamin C aids in skin's natural regeneration process, which helps the body repair damaged skin cells.
The Vitamin C found in the Kakadu plum is also the most stable Vitamin C in nature, meaning it holds its nutrient value for much longer.
