Indulge your skin with one of the richest natural vitamin C sources known on earth. Ounce per ounce, Kakadu plums contain on average 55 times the vitamin C of Florida oranges.*

Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant and helps protect skin from environmental aggressors by fighting free radical damage. Helps brighten and leave skin feeling more elastic, smoother, softer and firmer. Also helps improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

This high potency, lightweight serum provides an anti-aging concentrate of 20% stabilized Vitamin C enriched with Kakadu plum, ferulic acid and vitamin E. A portion of the proceeds of the sale of each serum will be donated to the Kimberley Training Institute of Western Australia to help build Aboriginal community enterprises based on the Kakadu plum.

*A fresh Kakadu plum contains on average 2500mg/100g WW of vitamin C vs. a Florida orange which contains 45mg/100g WW. Based upon data calculated from Food Chemistry (Nov. 2013) and the US Department of Agriculture (March 2014). The Kakadu plum included in the serum has been combined with stabilized vitamin C from other sources. Note that the vitamin content of natural foods are estimates and vary depending upon conditions such as soil, temperature, and climate.

Dermatologist tested & approved, allergy tested, hypoallergenic, non irritating, non-drying, non comedogenic, fragrance free, dye free, paraben free, gluten free, no animal testing.

        I bought this item because it was on sale during the skin care week. A great find. I put it on in the morning as instructed. It's very soothing and has softened my skin in just a few uses. Not sure if I'd pay full price but love it so far.

          I have only used this for a couple of days. It leaves my skin soft and rich, but is hard to apply from a dropper. I find it difficult to release the drops properly from an eye dropper type applicator. The smell is very pungent on first application & then disappears after about 15 minutes

                It's too early for me to really know if this working. It's only been a week. I can say though that it absorbs easily and 5 drops is plenty for entire face and most times for neck as well. If not I add a few more drops. You don't rub this into you skin, you pat and press it
                I allow it to dry for a few minutes before I add my moisturizer

                  • Q:

                    Will this serum get RID of Melasma over a period of time? Can I use a derma roller first and then put serum on to allow the serum to go down deeper to the dermis or does it go deep down into the skin already? Can I just use it at bedtime. I read reviews of how sticky it is therefore I don't want to wear it under my makeup.

                      What you are smelling is the ferulic acid and is normal. The serum has a two year shelf life once open and does have a tint that will range from a light yellow to an almost orange shade. We hope that this helps!
