Thanks to studies conducted by CSIRO (Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation) and Southern Cross university in Australia, kakadu plum (Terminalia ferdinandiana) has gained the status of a super food and is also used in cosmetics.
This fruit contains more vitamin C than any other natural food! Studies have shown its content to be 3100-5000 mg per 100 g (compared to 50 mg per 100 g for orange or 1677 mg per 100 g for acerola).
Vitamin C is known to be a powerful antioxidant that the body needs in order to form collagen. This vitamin neutralises free radicals formed due to harmful environmental factors such as exposure to UV radiation. As such, vitamin C is very important for reducing wrinkles and improving the structure and elasticity of the skin.
