Kakadu C 20% Vitamin C Serum with Ferulic Acid & Vitamin E

Ask a Question

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.

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

          I had never tried a serum before this one, but I was looking for something to help with my sun spots and wrinkles on my forehead. I've been using this nightly for a week and already see a difference in both. I also love how well it moisturizes. I wouldn't wear it during the day though as it's somewhat heavy. I wear it overnight and have still seen results.

          I have really bad hyperpigmentation and this has helped my dramatically. It's expensive, but for someone who has been looking for so long for something that works, I'd gladly pay for a product that works.

            I love anything from this brand. Have been using them for just a couple of months but noticed immediately improvement on my skin. Only a day after using their products my skin was already so much better!!! It is amazing! I use this product everyday in the morning. Only 5 drops, no more is needed each time. It's expensive but totally worth it! And it will last a very long time! Highly recommend it.
