Why We LOVE Kakadu Plum

Kakadu Plum - where do we start? A 'Feel Good' favourite, this wonderfruit is found in our Kakadu Plum Body Milk, Sensitive Body Milk, and now Kakadu Plum Sunscreen SPF 50+.

So why have we fallen so in love with this tiny but mighty fruit? To begin with, they’re a native Australian fruit that have been harvested and used for their powerful nutritional and medicinal benefits by Aboriginal communities for thousands of years. 

Identified as nature's richest known source of Vitamin C, Kakadu Plums are rich in antioxidants meaning they protect the skin and fight off free radical damage caused by environmental factors such as sun exposure and pollution. This can also help to stimulate the repair of your skin by promoting the production of collagen and hyaluronic acid. 

According to the Northern Australia Aboriginal Kakadu Plum Alliance (NAAKPA), “Kakadu Plums are an excellent source of gallic and ellagic acid which are believed to repair damaged skin and reduce collagen breakdown. With more ellagic acid than berries, Kakadu Plums have been found to contain compounds which reduce the skin's inflammatory response to UV light.” This makes Kakadu Plum the perfect addition to our latest SPF 50+ sunscreen lotion... like an SPF with benefits!
