Kakadu Plum, also known as Gubinge, Murungu or Billygoat Plum has long been embraced by indigenous communities, not only as a form of 'bush tucker' but also for its medicinal properties.
This nutrient dense super fruit is commonly found in North Western Australia and to survive this harsh climate, it developed a dense concentration of vitamins and other nutrients. It has an abundance of antioxidants, potassium and dietary fibre, not to mention its incredibly high amounts of Vitamin C, ranking amongst the highest known of any other natural food source.
Skin loving benefits of Kakadu Plum
- Anti Aging: Vitamin C, one of the major antioxidants found in Kakadu Plum, is renowned for reducing the visible signs of aging by producing and maintaining collagen levels in the skin. Collagen is responsible creating structure and firmness of the skin, keeping it looking plump, improving skin elasticity and reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
- Protection from free radicals: Vitamin C in Kakadu Plum neutralizes free radicals and protects it from damage caused by exposure to harmful UV rays of the sun. Vitamin C also helps repair the damage caused by exposure to environmental pollution and helps keep the skin cells healthy.
- Anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory: Kakadu Plum contains gallic and ellagic acids, powerful phytochemicals with notable antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal and anti-inflammatory properties. These acids work to calm irritated skin, reduce inflammation and redness, and strengthen the skin's outer barrier.
- Reduces melanogenesis: Ellagic acid also helps to inhibit melanogenesis - the production of melanin pigments. This reduces hyperpigmentation, allowing for a brighter and more even skin tone.
