Seeking Vitamin C in Your Skincare? Say Hello to Kakadu Plum
Once recognized primarily for its ability to help bolster the immune system, the power of Vitamin C is now renowned for its ability to protect skin against aging free radicals, to brighten dull complexions and dark spots, and to help prevent the formation of fine lines and wrinkles.
So it’s no wonder that skincare containing Vitamin C is gaining evermore popularity–but for those who think all Vitamin C is created equal, we’re here to introduce you to the power of kakadu plum extract.
Read on for why you need this powerhouse source of Vitamin C in your non toxic skincare routine–and where to find it in MĀSK Skincare.
What are the skin benefits of Vitamin C?
Vitamin C is a powerful, natural antioxidant that works to combat free radicals that can prematurely age and damage the skin.
Free radicals exist seemingly everywhere in our modern world: In smoke from cigarettes and pollution, in fast food and refined sugar and alcohol, in UV rays from the sun, in medication and radiation, and industrial chemicals.
They’re also a part of normal metabolic processes, but when we are exposed to too many of them, it can create oxidative stress in our bodies. This, in turn, can show up on our skin by way of dullness, dark spots, fine lines and wrinkles, uneven texture and tone, and loss of elasticity.
Eating foods rich in antioxidants and using powerful antioxidants –like Vitamin C–topically in your clean skincare routine can help combat free radicals and in turn, leave your complexion brighter, more even toned, improve the look and feel of skin texture, lighten dark spots, and prevent fine lines and wrinkles.
If more radiance sounds like something you could use out of your clean beauty arsenal, keep reading…
Meet kakadu plum, a Vitamin C powerhouse
While many of us automatically think of citrus fruits like oranges, lemons, and limes as being high in Vitamin C, there is one natural ingredient that far surpasses these fruits for its Vitamin C content: the kakadu plum.
This small green fruit, native to the Northwest Territories of Australia, actually contains 55 times the amount of Vitamin C as an orange–but that’s not all. Kakadu plums also pack in five times the amount of antioxidants as blueberries do! That’s a whole lot of skin benefits in one natural ingredient.
Kakadu plum is a wondrous ingredient not just for its antioxidant power, but for how well tolerated it is by most skin types. Even acne prone or inflamed skin seems to tolerate kakadu plum well, and that’s a great thing; the high concentration of Vitamin C can be effective at soothing blemishes and fading acne scars.
But kakadu plum isn’t just for acne prone skin; it’s also moisturizing, making dry skin feel soft, supple, and more radiant.
