Native to Northern Australia, primarily the Northern Territory, the Kimberleys, and Arnhem Land, the Kakadu Plum is identified as the world’s richest source of natural Vitamin C, With over 5000mg of Vitamin C per 100g of fruit, the Vitamin C concentration of the Kakadu Plum measures up to 100x higher than that found in an orange, the highest recorded levels of Vitamin C of any fruit in the world.
Considered a gift of the Dreamtime, the Australian superfruit has boundless benefits for our inner body and outer skin health. Used in the Indigenous diet as well as in traditional Indigenous medicine for thousands of years, its healing and medicinal properties have found their way into modern skincare.
Not only rich in Vitamin C, the Kakadu Plum contains large amounts of polyphenols (mainly gallic and ellagic acids) with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, plus vitamins E and A, offering an impressive list of benefits for every skin type.
The brand new range combines the power of Kakadu Plum with tried and tested skincare classics including Aloe Vera, New Zealand Manuka Honey, Chamomile extract, B vitamins, Sunflower Seed oil, and the Australian skincare essential, SPF15. Other edgy ingredients that support the Kakadu Plum’s high level of Vitamin C include Sunflower sprouts, Peruvian Tara Fruit Pod Extract and Betaine, a naturally occurring amino acid that encourages immediate hydration.
The result? A range rich in Vitamin C, super-antioxidants and natural antibacterial qualities. The skincare routine and its carefully chosen ingredients work in synergy to brighten skin tone, fight free radical damage, balance and smooth skin for a more luminous complexion.
While the Kakadu plum may not be as common as a Riverland orange, never fear; it doesn’t come with an unapproachable price tag! The price point for the entire range falls between $14.95 and $29.95, meaning you can update your entire skincare routine for under $80!
Here we take a closer look at the new range, launching online for pre-order next week:
The lightness of foam is a pleasure for those who don’t like the feeling of cream cleansers, on their skin. An oil-free, antioxidant-rich formula, Australian Kakadu Plum Extract stands strong as the hero ingredient, naturally the world’s richest source of Vitamin C. The supporting cast are no shrinking violets, either; the antibacterial and moisturising properties of New Zealand Manuka Honey and Aloe Vera support your skin’s natural moisture barrier.
For cleansed and clear skin, use the Oxygen-C Foaming cleanser twice daily to expel excess dirt and oil, and detoxify impurities to reveal more radiant skin.
A good toner is all about binding water to the skin for ultra-hydrating, dewy results. The Hydrating Vitamin C Toner is infused with Kakadu Plum Extract, working to shield skin from free radical damage and premature ageing caused by UV exposure – the flipside to all the benefits of living a sunburnt country.
Aloe Vera works together with Betaine, a naturally occurring Amino Acid, to instantly hydrate and attach the most wonderful element to the skin – water – creating protection and hydration for moist, soft, and supple skin.
Micellar Cleansing Water is experiencing a rapid rise in popularity thanks to it’s gentle purifying properties. Infused with Kakadu Plum Extract to deliver antioxidants and Vitamin C, plus Aloe Vera & Sunflower Seed Oil to moisturise, the revitalising formula cleanses gently while leaving skin feeling hydrated and refreshed.
Simply soak a cotton pad and gently wipe across the face and eye area – no rinse required!
The final delectable piece of the OXYGEN-C range is the Brightening Daily Moisturiser with Australian skincare essential, SPF15.
In addition a healthy dose of brightening Vitamin C from the Kakadu Plum – aka your new favourite fruit – the unique formula contains an award-winning extract blend of Organic Sunflower sprouts and Tara Fruit pods to protect skin from damaging free radicals formed by Infrared and blue light, a 100% Plant-derived carbohydrate to ensure instant deep hydration with 72-hour moisturisation from first application, plus Vitamin B3 to help address an array of skin concerns; from fine lines and wrinkles, to uneven skin tone and blemishes, while strengthening the skin’s barrier moisturisation.
