Kakadu Plum may only just be catching the attention of recent media articles. However indigineous Aboriginals have always used this fruit in their diet and medicine.

Science has discovered that the Aboriginal bushfood known as the kakadu plum has the world’s richest natural source of vitamin C, which makes it an excellent ingredient in skincare products.image


A native of Arnhem Land in northern Australia, the kakadu plum is also called Gurumal, Gubinge, Billygoat Plum or Murunga by indigenous Australians, who have been using it for thousands of years as a traditional antiseptic and healing remedy, as well as a gourmet bush food.

Studies show the concentration of vitamin C in kakadu plum to be as high as 3200-5000mg/100g (compared with 50mg/100g for oranges).

Vitamin C is critical for your body and plays an important role in maintaining healthy, resilient skin. While young skin is full of vitamin C, aging skin naturally loses this nutrient over time. Other factors like exposure to UV light, pollutants and cigarette smoke compound the decline of vitamin C, contributing to signs of aging.

Vitamin C is essential for the formation of proline, an amino acid that is required to make collagen. Due to its massive vitamin C content, kakadu plum is becoming an increasingly popular ingredient in skincare products.

Leading me to my next point. I have recently been trialing a new cream that has come onto the market called Pellelucent. One of its main ingrediants is Kakadu Plum. I find this cream is quickly absorbed into the skin and I feel its benefits totally penetrate beneath the skins surface, exactly where they should be. If you believe in having QUALITY ingrediants in your skincare, then this is the cream for you.
