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 used this once & it had a bad smell & a slight yellow tint. Usually when vitamin C serum goes bad it smells bad & turns yellow or brown. So I returned it & went with a different brand.

            I used it for a few days and didn't see any difference. It says to use 5 drops, but it took more than that to cover my face. It is very hard to control how much comes out of the dropper, as it just flows out on it's own making it easy to waste. If I'm going to spend that much for Vit. C oil, I will get some from a Derm. Dr.

                Serums are the fountain of youth. I had looked high and low for a great Vit C serum to put on my skin. I had not heard of this brand but wanted to try something new. I usually use Aveda to give you an idea of my caliber of skincare product arsenal. Being an Aestheticism I know the power of serums. My skin looked brighter and felt like it was taking to the product flawlessly.

                        Absolutely! You want to use enough to cover your entire face, so for some it may be a little bit more or a little bit less than 5 drops.

                        Hi Karen,

                        You can definitely layer another serum or moisturizer with the Kakadu C Serum! We would suggest waiting a few minutes to ensure that the vitamin C serum is fully absorbed prior.

                        A:

                        DermaDoctor does not recommend combining this serum with other treatment products, since it contains a high percentage of vitamin C (20%). You could certainly alternate one AM and one PM, if you prefer.
