The warm summer days are becoming far and few between and the cooler autumn days are setting in.


After months of being exposed to the hot sunshine rays, it is time to rejuvenate and replenish our skin with something nourishing and energizing. Welcome Kakadu Plum by Kakadu Plum Co., Australia’s native bush superfood. Wild harvested by the Aboriginal people, Kakadu Plum has been a traditional source of bush tucker for centuries.

The benefits of Kakadu Plum

Traditionally, the Aboriginal people would use and eat the fresh little plum looking fruit for its incredible medicinal properties and its healing and antiseptic properties. Kakadu Plums are known to have the highest source of natural Vitamin C of any plant in the world, up to 100 times more than oranges. Often consumed as a superfood powder in your morning smoothie, due to their high concentration of Vitamin C and antioxidants, Kakadu Plum is also often found in skincare and beauty products.

Vitamin C is essential for glowing skin as it helps for firming and fading of dark spots. It can also assist with acne and improves the way the skin responds to the harsh UV light. Because of its incredible high levels of natural vitamin C, Kakadu Plum in your face cream or face mask will leave your skin with a rich glowing feeling, working to detoxify and flush out toxins within.

But forget the prepackaged options, why not try making your own Kakadu Plum face mask at home. Using Kakadu Plum Powder, this recipe is the perfect way to begin your cleanse for your skin.
