Kakadu Plum: What are the Benefits for Tween Skincare?
Kakadu Plum (botanical name: Terminalia ferdinandiana) is naturally found on trees growing in the Kimberley region of Western Australia, the Northern Territory and Queensland.
It is considered to be a gift of the Dreamtime by Aboriginal culture as it has been an important bush food. Its fragrance has been described as "a stewed apple and pear aroma, cooked citrus and a floral-musk note."
Kakadu Plum is frequently referred to as a superfood because it has the highest recorded levels of Vitamin C of any fruit in the whole world- more than 100 times that of oranges!
The Amazing Skin Benefits for Tween Skincare
As well as Vitamin C, Kakadu Plum is known for its incredible antibacterial and antiseptic properties, making it an ideal ingredient for Tween Skincare. It also has the following additional benefits:
Great for Sensitive Skin
The properties in Kakadu Plum resolve redness and fight acne-causing bacteria without the use of harsh chemicals.
Being a natural anti-inflammatory and antibiotic, it is an ingredient that can be used confidently on the most sensitive skin, even those with eczema or acne.
Provides Antioxidant Protection
The anti-oxidants found in Kakadu Plum are quite rare. As the plant grows in harsh conditions the fruit naturally develops a unique antioxidant profile to protect itself.
The antioxidants found in the fruit therefore protect against free radical damage caused by the sun, pollution and environmental toxins.
Helps with Skin Appearance
As a plant based source of Vitamin C, Kakadu Plum can help skin recover and reduce redness either caused by sensitivity or skin blemishes. It smooths and balances uneven skin tone and brightens complexions.
