But first, what is Kakadu Plum?
Known by the names of murunga, billygoat plum, and gubinge, the Kakadu Plum is native to the top end of Northern Australia. The indigenous people have used it not only as a superfood but also for its healing and antiseptic properties. The fruit is obtained at the start of the dry season each year in May. It is yellow in colour when it’s ripe and contains a large seed within its usually oval shape.
Skin Benefits of Kakadu Plum
Check out the amazing skin benefits of Kakadu Plum:
Protects & Fights
It is incredibly rich in antioxidants. Antioxidants detoxify the skin and fight the free radical damage and are crucial to your complexion. The free radical damage is due to the environmental pollution and exposure to sunlight. The antioxidants found in Kakadu Plum are quite rare.
The plant grows in harsh conditions so the fruit naturally develops this unique antioxidant profile to protect itself from the elements, which is highly beneficial for your skin.
Helps with Skin Appearance
Kakadu Plum contains 3,000mg of vitamin C per 100g. This is 50% higher than oranges! Our skin needs Vitamin C to produce collagen, reduce wrinkles and lines, reduce scarring, and lighten the colour by preventing hyperpigmentation. It can even prevent skin changes caused by photo-ageing.
Ability to Soothe
Kakadu Plum has the ability to soothe skin irritation as Kakadu Plum Seed Oil is intensely soothing.
Kakadu Plum features strong antifungal and antibacterial properties. These are due to the presence of phytochemicals known as gallic and ellagic acids. The gallic acid is helpful for restoring the skins’ natural barrier and the ellagic acid promotes elasticity and suppleness.
The presence of the phytochemicals also makes Kakadu Plum an ideal solution for fighting acne breakouts while the oil of the fruit will help balance the complexion.
