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 applied this product after washing my face and before moisturizer. I thought the smell was pleasant. After the initial use, my skin broke out. I continued to use the product, thinking perhaps it was something else causing the problem. Unfortunately, it wasn't. After the breakout, my skin became extremely dry and flaky in certain areas, and as it healed, it itched unpleasantly. It took at least a week for my skin to heal completely from the time I quite using the product. I have never had such reactions to any skincare I have tried before. I would not use or recommend this product.

          I use this product after I wash my face and apply toner, then I'll apply this oil. Since I started using this oil my skin has never looked better! It has made my skin look and appear more youthful and more even skin tone, my adult acne has settled down and has become more manageable. I bought two bottles while they were on sale and I had wish I bought more. This is very expensive and don't think I'll be able to afford it after I run through my second bottle and am a little upset. Maybe I'll get lucky and it'll go on sale again!

            Comments about Dermadoctor Kakadu C 20% Vitamin C Serum with Ferulic Acid & Vitamin E:

            I started using this about 6 months ago. I was told by my skin doctor that using a vitamin "c" oil daily in the morning would help keep my complexion and skin in better shape. I went to Ulta looking for a Vitamin C oil. This one has a more complex and potent Vitamin C as it is extracted from 2 different sources. After using this once a day for 6 months, I have noticed a change in the brightness and tautness of my skin and the smoothing effect on diminishing some fine lines on my face. Don't panic at the cost; it takes 5-6 drops a day; it lasted me for 6 + months.

            After a couple months of daily use, I don't see any results. I only use this in mornings because I already have other serums and creams I love to use regularly in my nightly routine.

              I purchased product when it was recently on sale. Must say I am not sure about paying full price... however I really do see a difference. At 20% vitamin C you will notice results after 3 weeks, my skin glowed and felt soft and moisturized. At first put it on in AM before sunscreen as directed but my face looked way too shiny. Contacted company rep and was told that PM is just fine. Rated it 4 stars because full price is very expensive. The price of pursuing youth and beauty on a pension...will see how long bottle lasts.

                    • 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!

                        Our Kakadu C Serum should be safe to use while pregnant or breastfeeding; however, we always post complete ingredient lists on all of our products and recommend that you print this off and consult a physician prior to use.

                        We suggest always giving any new skincare product 4-6 weeks of use before you begin to really see results.
