KAKADU PLUM CELLULAR EXTRACT (INCI: Teriminalia ferdinandiana Cellular Extract)
Have you heard of the KAKADU PLUM? THE RICHEST NATURAL SOURCE OF VITAMIN C IN THE WORLD!
Kakadu plum, also called gurumal, gubinge, billygoat plum, or marunga, has been used for thousands of years as a traditional medicine and food.
It is the richest natural source of vitamin C and comes from the northern part of Australia. Due to its rich and bioavailable vitamin C content, it is one of the most studied superfoods. Studies show that the concentration of vitamin C in kakadu plums is from 3100-5000 mg per 100 g (compared to 50 mg per 100 g for orange or 1677 mg per 100 g for acerola), so it is an excellent ingredient for skincare products.
Vitamin C from kakadu plum acts as a powerful antioxidant that protects the skin from external stressors and promotes the formation and renewal of two of the main proteins that keep our skin youthful, collagen and elastin. It helps to reduce wrinkles, improves skin texture, reduces skin damage caused by free radicals, and protects the skin from UV damage. It works synergistically with the Davidson plum extract and Mountain Pepper Leaf Extract described below. Together they restore the skin and return its radiance.
