Ingredient Focus - Kakadu Plum

Ingredient Focus - Kakadu Plum 

We all know of the amazing power of Vitamin C in skincare - at least I hope you do.  So, let me tell you about one of the most amazing ingredients we use at David Deans Skincare: Kakadu Plum. Kakadu Plum is one of the highest natural sources of Vitamin C in the world.  Kakadu Plums have the highest recorded levels of natural Vitamin C content in the world, measuring up to 7000 mg/100g DW, which is 100 times the Vitamin C content in oranges*

As Kakadu Plums are grown in some of harshest and remote areas of outback Australia, they have an incredibly rare antioxidant profile. Due to the harsh conditions where they thrive, each plum develops a highly efficient defence mechanism made up of diverse antioxidants which makes it one of the ultimate skincare ingredients we use.

Kakadu Plum is used in skincare for the beneficial antifungal, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. While the gallic acid works to restore the skin’s natural barrier, ellagic acid encourages skin elasticity and suppleness.  Vitamin C is also effective at reducing the appearance of scarring or hyperpigmentation as it naturally lightens the complexion.

This powerful antioxidant promotes blood circulation, maintains the blood vessel tone and encourages healthy skin renewal by travelling down to the lower epidermis working to stimulate the production of collagen and reduce fine lines and wrinkles skin and fights off free radical damage caused by environmental factors such as pollution or sun exposure.
