What fruit has the highest recorded level of natural Vitamin C in the world? Hint: It’s not oranges! It’s the Kakadu Plum, and it’s grown right here in Australia!

 This little native fruit has become a skincare superstar around the world because of its abundant Vitamin C and antioxidant properties. Here's the juice on Kakadu Plum, its benefits, and the Kakadu Plum skincare products you can try right now from The Well Store.

 What is Kakadu Plum?

 The Kakadu Plum is a small, pale green fruit tree that grows wild in parts of Northern and Western Australia. It is considered a gift of the Dreamtime in Aboriginal culture, where it has been used as food and bush medicine for thousands of years, to treat ailments and skin conditions.

 Why is Kakadu Plum so sought after in skincare and beauty?

 Kakadu Plum is being snapped up as a skincare ingredient for very good reason – it’s thought to have up to 100 times the Vitamin C of oranges, and five times the antioxidant properties of blueberries.

 Vitamin C is well known for its benefits to the skin, including collagen synthesis and protection against UV damage. Kakadu Plum also contains gallic and ellagic acid, making it a free-radical fighting, anti-ageing, anti-inflammatory powerhouse for bright, even, and young-looking skin.

 Want to use Kakadu Plum on your skin? Here’s how

 Many Australian skincare brands are ahead of the Kakadu craze, and already include the plum as a key ingredient. You can find Kakadu Plum in everything from cosmetics, moisturisers, and serums to sunscreen, face oils, and toners. You may see it listed in ingredients as its species name, ‘Terminalia Ferdinandiana.’
