Oily skin or dry skin, you need this ingredient in your skincare routine

What ingredient are we talking about? Kakadu Plum!

The Kakadu plum (Terminalia ferdinandiana), is a small fruit found across Northern Australia.

Why is it such a key ingredient here at Goodieco? Kakadu Plums have the highest recorded natural amount of vitamin C of any food in the world! In fact, 100 grams of the fruit provides well over 3,000% of your daily needs if you were to ingest it. For reference, the same serving of oranges contains 59.1% of your recommended daily intake.


Why is Kakadu Plum so beneficial in our skincare?

Because the human body does not produce its own Vitamin C, it relies on obtaining it through external sources. 

Vitamin C benefits for skin include stimulating collagen production and neutralizing free radicals. Daily use of a balanced and stabilized Vitamin C facial serum (like the Dream Serum found in our Nourishing Trio and Supercharged Trio) will ensure that your skin soaks up all of the perks of this powerful ingredient.

Kakadu Plums are also an excellent source of antioxidants. They contain 6 times the amount of polyphenols and 13.3 times more antioxidant activity than blueberries.

Antioxidants help neutralize unstable molecules called free radicals. Excess amounts of these molecules can harm your body and cause oxidative stress, which presents as fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation and dull, tired skin.


Vitamin C benefits for oily skin

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that will benefit oily and acne-prone in a big way. 

It helps:

  • treat inflammation associated with acne, 

  • treats damaged skin 

  • brightens skin 

  • Improves skin texture and health

Vitamin C benefits for dry skin

When you have dry skin, one of the biggest worries can be premature aging.

Vitamin C can help fend off the signs of aging because of its vital role in the body's natural collagen synthesis. It helps to heal damaged skin and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. Not to mention, it helps your skin to retain moisture, preventing it from becoming too dry in the first place!
