Why Kakadu Plum Is the Newest Must Have Skincare Ingredient

Kakadu plum is a fruit found on the Kakadu plum tree, which is a native Australian plant. It is commonly found in tropical woodlands where the plums are smooth, fleshy, egg-shaped with a single seed. Recently the Kakadu Plum is used as an ingredient in food and lifestyle products such as jams, tea and even skincare products.

The Kakadu Plum can be considered as a superfood as it is high in antioxidants and contains more than 100 times the Vitamin C of an orange. Both water and oil-soluble antioxidants can be found in the fruit. These antioxidants are usually low in levels in common fruits and vegetables. However, Kakadu Plums contain 5 times the antioxidant capability of blueberries! (Rural Industries R&D Corporation, 2014).
