Why Kakadu plum is all the rage in skincare!

Kakadu plum is a native Australian fruit historically used by Indigenous Australians for its healing properties.

Over recent years, the popularity of Kakadu plum as an active ingredient in skincare has risen significantly with many retailers now boasting the benefits of Kakadu plum in their products.

As consumers, there's no denying you should be paying attention to this modern-day miracle ingredient!

Kakadu plum is the plant chosen for our Bk Vitamin C Face & Eye Serum, and here are the reasons we chose it:

Reduce the signs of ageing

Kakadu plum is a potent source of vitamin C, which is key to reducing the visible signs of ageing.

While the first fruit that comes to mind when you think of vitamin C is generally an Orange, Kakadu plum contains about 100 times more vitamin C than the well-known citrus fruit!

Natural vitamin C is a co-factor in helping to stimulate the growth of collagen in the skin to increase suppleness, assisting in reducing fine lines, wrinkles whilst improving skin elasticity contributing to a more youthful glow.

Provides antioxidant protection against toxins

The primary function of the skin's outer barrier is to lock natural moisture in and keep environmental toxins out.

Kakadu Plum contains the natural nutrient gallic acid, which is a phenolic acid that works as an antioxidant protecting against free radical damage caused by the sun, pollution and environmental toxins.

Free radicals attack cells which can cause oxidative stress resulting in accelerating the signs of ageing. The more you build up the protective barrier with antioxidants, the better for skin health leaving your complexion to reap the rewards.

Reduces the harmful effects of the sun

Let's get one thing straight – sunburn is never OK! But we understand that it does happen and when it does, Kakadu plum can be your best friend.

Kakadu plum has evolved to survive the unforgiving outback environment so it's developed a natural resistance to the harsh effects of the sun that can be passed on to your skin.

Kakadu plum also contains the active nutrient ellagic acid, and along with Vitamin C helps to inhibit melanogenesis to reduce the overproduction of skin pigmentation.

Healing antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties

Plant-based vitamin C can help skin recover and reduce redness either caused by sensitivity, overexposure to the sun or inflammatory skin disorders.

The gallic acid and ellagic acid are rich in antibacterial properties to help calm irritated skin while strengthening the skin's outer barrier making Kakadu plum an ideal ingredient to help with breakouts or inflammation in the skin.

Kakadu plum on your skin – the science

There's no doubt whatsoever that Kakadu plum is a potent source of natural nutrients that work in synergy as a wonder ingredient for your skin. It's important to note that for it to be effective just the way nature intended, the extract should be fully active.

Why is Biologi different?

Bk Vitamin C Face & Eye serum is the result of using native Kakadu plum which has been extracted in its cellular matrix to transport the powerful phytonutrients to the skin.

Bk Vitamin C Face & Eye Serum can be used all over the face to assist in hydrating and leaving a bright, even complexion.

When choosing Kakadu plum in skincare, to make full use of all the natural benefits, always choose a serum that's active to help repair, protect and nourish the skin naturally.
