THE BENEFITS +
The world’s most potent source of natural vitamin C, Kakadu Plum Extract brightens and shields complexions while stimulating collagen production. Vitamin C’s photo-protective properties further work to help reverse UV-induced damage, while phenolic acids protect against oxidative stress. This super fruit’s prebiotic abilities help to restore balance to the skin’s microbiome, reducing signs of sensitivity and improving skin tone and texture for a visibly enhanced radiance.
THE SCIENCE +
We choose to source our vitamin C from Kakadu Plum Extract, as this natural form is enhanced by antioxidant-rich phenolic acids and prebiotics not found in synthetic varieties. A shelf-stable ingredient, Kakadu Plum Extract has been proven in lab tests and human trials to inhibit transepidermal water loss (TEWL), which supports essential skin hydration. Further studies highlight this extract’s ability to significantly improve radiance, skin texture and reduce redness.
THE SOURCE +
At Kunkeei, we source our Kakadu Plum Extract from its native Australian lands where it’s hand-picked by indigenous communities. After harvesting, this super fruit undergoes an extraction process to produce an incredibly potent, stable and natural form of vitamin C.
