Know Your Glow: Kakadu Plum Extract

Make sure you know what is in your sunless tan! It is our mission to provide you with high-quality skincare products that illuminate your natural beauty with a regenerative glow. Each month we will be featuring a natural ingredient in our products to highlight the benefits it provides. Besides the fact that it is just fun to say, Kakadu Plum Extract is one of the most important ingredients in EXTEND due in large part to the fantastic source it is of Vitamin C. In fact, this plum is the richest source of Vitamin C bringing with it the important antioxidants and healing qualities.

Healing Properties, Lasting Benefits

Found in Australia, the Kakadu Plum is known to help repair the skin damage caused by ageing and the average wear and tear of life. This fruit extract is useful to stimulate the collagen production naturally found in your skin to remove fine lines or scars. The gallic acid contained in this fruit acts as an astringent, antimicrobial, antifungal and antibacterial agent, giving EXTEND the power to return elasticity to your skin. This fruit extract helps to soothe irritated skin and reduce sensitivity. While gallic acid works to restore the skin’s natural barrier, ellagic acid encourages skin elasticity and suppleness. Ideal for acne or breakout prone skin, the oil extracted from these plums help to balance the complexion. Being that they are found in some of the most remote places in Australia, Kakadu Plums have a uniquely rare antioxidant profile. The harsh growing conditions that they experience mean each plum develops a highly efficient defense mechanism made up of diverse antioxidants and when we put it in our products, that benefit is passed to you.
