Kakadu Plum is an Australian superfood, with the highest source of Vitamin C from plants. With more than 500% of the daily recommended intake per 100g serving, this delicious fruit will keep your skin healthy and looking youthful.
Nourishing your skin with antioxident rich vitamin C from Kakadu Plum helps fight age spots, fade hyperpigmentation, remove environmental stresses and revitalise dull skin.

This natural and healthy fruit contains Ellagic Acid which may interrupt skin wrinkling and inflammation.
Kakadu Plum is a miracle for your skin!
Way up in the northern reaches of sub-tropical Western Australia, and across the top of the Northern Territory to Queensland, the Kakadu Plum is found. It’s also known by a myriad of other names depending on the aboriginal group, just some being: gubinge, madoorr, garbiny, kabinyn, nghul nghul, murunga and colloquially: “Billy Goat Plum”.
Considered a gift of the Dreamtime and farmed for 40,000 years by the Australian Indigenous people, they saw great results in their communities when using this small, green stone fruit as a medicine and food. The fruit and seed were eaten in their natural form, while the sap was roasted to create an antiseptic balm to treat skin conditions. The bark was boiled to create a tea to ease colds and flu.
Bite into a Kakadu Plum and you’ll get a bitter taste but reduce it to pulp and add water to make a nutritious drink is how to consume it.
Today, as harvesting of the Kakadu Plum for commercial enterprise gathers pace, it’s the indigenous communities of Australia’s far north that are reaping the benefits. It’s creating jobs, a sense of purpose and strengthening cultural ties and respect.
Highest Source of Vitamin C
Kakadu Plum has the highest reading of Vitamin C compared to any fruit on this planet. How’s that for a brilliant dietary starting point? The best source of plant Vitamin C, straight from nature’s pantry, and it’s right here in Australia! It has to be a better alternative than ascorbic acid – the commonly used synthetic version of Vitamin C.
Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that protects your body from reactive molecules, better known as ‘free radicals’, which can increase the risk of disease and ageing. It also targets oxidative stress which is an imbalance of free radicals and antioxidants, which can lead to cell and tissue damage. So while it’s heading off free radicals, Vitamin C is also boosting your immune system, helping your body to absorb almost all other vitamins along the way.
Kakadu Plums are rich in nutrients and vitamins, the most exciting nutrients being copper and iron. Both are instrumental in red blood cell production. Copper goes a long way to assisting bone and connective tissue formation too, while iron is vital for transporting oxygen around your body.
Then, to make this a true super food, Mother Nature throws in smaller amounts of thiamine, riboflavin, magnesium, zinc and calcium as well.
Want to take the fight up to constipation as well as go a long way to warding off colon cancer and Irritable Bowel Syndrome? Then you need a good source of fibre, and Kakadu Plums are packed with it.
