Introducing the world's most powerful and potent natural Vitamin C - Kakadu Plum cellular extract! Native to Australia, this skincare powerhouse is organic, natural and uses a unique form of cellular extraction only our suppliers have access to.
Get acquainted with Kakadu Plum - the most important botanical extract for your skin and the sole ingredient in our Kakadu Plum Serum.
Why Kakadu Plum? Because its fruit contains the highest levels of stable Vitamin C found anywhere in the natural world - that’s 100 times more Vitamin C than an orange - and it’s native to Australia.
So if you’re seeking skincare which boosts collagen growth, hydration and brightens skin, while reducing wrinkles, inflammation and hyper-pigmentation, stable, pure Vitamin C is a powerhouse. Ours is 100% pure, undiluted and organic and doubles as a powerful eye serum.
While the buzz surrounding Kakadu Plum has been gaining traction for a while, HydroSkin is proud to announce we are the first and only skincare company worldwide to utilise Kakadu Plum in it’s pure, 100% undiluted form. A breakthrough, patented cellular extraction process called Bioconcentration is used, which ensures the Vitamin C remains stable. Stable Vitamin C does not oxidise, meaning it maintains its ability to rid the skin of harmful free radicals which interfere with the production and maintenance of collagen. When collagen fibres degrade or are effected by free radicals (unstable molecules, atoms, or ions in the body which react with other compounds, damaging skin), the skin structure breaks down causing wrinkling and loss of elasticity. Man-made Vitamin C, such as Ascorbic Acid, is not stable and begins to loose efficacy as soon as it is exposed to oxygen or sunlight.
Kakadu Plum Fruit
Sounding a bit sciencey? Think about the way an avocado or peach turns brown when it’s cut open and exposed to oxygen - this is the result of molecules in the fruit oxidising and can be stopped with the application of lemon juice. Lemon juice contains high levels of the antioxidant Vitamin C! The high levels of Vitamin C in Kakadu Plum extract make it a potent antioxidant (a molecule capable of slowing or preventing the oxidation of other molecules) which is the reason it is so effective at fighting free radicals and subsequently slowing and mending the damage to skin cells which causes visible ageing.
Kakadu Plum also has amazing medicinal benefits. The active Vitamin C aids photoprotective mechanisms which help fight the molecular damage caused by sunlight and increases protection from harsh UVA and UVB light. The Gallic Acid present in Kakadu Plum extract has anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties - we have been receiving lots of feedback from our customers about how effective our Kakadu Plum Serum is at reducing allergies, eczema, psoriasis, bites and rosacea. Gallic acid is also an excellent wound healer. In conjunction with this, the undiluted extract we use is food grade, meaning our Kakadu Plum Serum can be ingested as a Vitamin C supplement!
