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 came in Ulta looking for a beauty regimen while vacationing in the Keys, that protecting and kept my skin looking healthy after all the sun exposure. This gem kept me looking healthy and glowy. Just how I like it. Even my friends were asking what was the secret. It's pricey but worth every penny.

          I used this product morning and night. I bought this product because the Peter Thomas Roth Camu Camu Vitamin C Brightening Serum was no longer available online or in store. When I purchased this product my face was clear of blemishes. One side of my cheek had no dark marks the other cheek had 3 that I was working on getting rid of. Apparently it is true that not all vitmain C serums are equal. This product broke my skin out for me with breakouts scarring comes along so I try to avoid both. It did not fade old scars and seemed to cause breakouts for me.

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

          I can not see this product, NOT working. DERMAdoctor Kakacu C IS highly effective. My main concerns for using a Vit C product, are to keep dark spots at bay and lighten the spots on my face. And, after only using this product since 21 Days of Beauty at Ulta (thats when I purchased it at half price, 6 weeks ago) I'm noticing the darkness on my cheeks are alot lighter. And, I use Vit C products regularly and have for many years! DERMAdoctor has been the most effective. I try to apply just a few drops to my whole face because, if you use too much, it can be sticky. I only use it at night. Some Vit C products, recommend, night use only. C can decay on your skin in sunlight and deems the product ineffective, wasting your money. I love the fact, ferulic acid is included in this product. Im 57 and have very few fine lines anc noticed sincd using this product, the tiny lines under my eyes are nearly gone. They may have gotton plumped because Vit C builds collagen and thats been a goal of mine. To help thicken the delicate skin, just under my eye bags where those fine lines were. I use my toner, then essence, serum, hyaluronic acid serum, DERMAdoctor Kakadu C, then, my moisturizer. I have been following the K-Beauty 10 step skin care routine for 1 year, since writing this review on 11/04/17. I highly recommend DERMAdoctor Kakadu C. The Ferulic acid is fantastic ingredient to help the health of skin cells. Sometimes, I mix a few drops of 100% Squalane Oil with a few drops of Kakadu C, to make it less viscous. It absorbs quicker. Squalane is a lipid, we are all born with. By your early 20's, you've lost more than half. Thats the beginning, when, collagen breaks down and fine lines start. Peter Thomas Roth has 100% Squalane Oil you can purchase at Ulta. DERMAdoctor Kakadu C is by far, the best, most effective in record time, I've ever used for a VIT C product. Do what you can, to purchase a bottle. Split the cost with a friend.and share a bottle!

                I've used this product morning or night, sometimes both. I have normal skin that tends to be oily at times and a wee bit of dark spots from melasma but I don't have trouble and never did before this product with breakouts or acne, whatever you want to call it. It caused whitehead type bumps anytime I used it. Wasn't a fan of the smell either and it felt heavy like it didn't absorb into the skin.

                            A Vitamin C serum is the perfect serum to start with if you are a newbie. This one has Vitamin E and Ferulic Acid additionally, so the Vitamin C works even better and is suitable for all but extremely sensitive skin types. I recommend using this serum in the AM after cleansing and before your moisturizer/SPF for optimal benefits.

                            You can certainly apply this serum to the crows feet region and the undereye to promote brightening and firming. Be sure to avoid getting the product directly in your eyes or putting it on the eyelid as this serum has not been tested for that use.

                            This serum does not contain a sunscreen so an SPF would need to be layered on top for daily use. There is a half size of the serum available in the Kakadu C Brightening Kit.

                            You can definitely use the serum prior to makeup to help hydrate and fight fine lines and wrinkles!

                            There are not; however we would always suggest that you have your doctor review the ingredient list on any product you have concerns over.

                          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.

                            This serum will help with melasma over time. You can definitely use with a derma roller and use the serum at night if you prefer.

                            Yes, this is a wonderful product to assist in the fading of acne scars over time. We would recommend using it in conjunction with our Kakadu C Peel Pads.

                          What is the shelf life of this product? Mine has a burnt smell and a yellow tint. Has it gone bad or is it still safe to use?

                            Hi Tess,

                            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!
