Cockatoo plums are built on a high nutritional content and survive in their natural environment. They can be used in BK serums, which are rich in natural phytonutrients to get the best results for your skin.
The Australian superfruit is often touted as the world’s richest source of vitamin C and considering that vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant with lightening properties, the cockatoo plum becomes an ingredient that can spice up even the most boring facial features. According to New York City dermatologist Dr Joshua Zeicher, cockatoo plums contain so much vitamin C that they can be used in many skincare products as an alternative to synthetic vitamin C. This is special because cocoa plums are the world’s highest natural source of vitamin C. Davidson’s Plum Lilli Pilli Serum is brimming with collagen-boosting active, skin-plumping hyaluronic acid.
As emerging skincare trends such as beauty skin quickly gain popularity, Australian extracts are fast becoming firm skincare favourites. These extracts are used for their healing and soothing properties, so it makes perfect sense to take them and apply them to the skin.
Our certified laboratory team has scientific research that details the astonishing benefits of botanical ingredients naturally found in Australia. Some of the world’s most effective natural ingredients are found in our Australian extracts, extracted from traditional plant species used by thousands of years-old living cultures around the world. Australian skincare products and their active ingredients are grown in a gentle environment.
Some brands and product lines rely on natural vegetable oils such as sesame, avocado, jojoba, rosehip, shea and cocoa butter to hydrate skin. High-quality organic skincare products containing plant extracts and natural oils do not require chemical parabens or preservatives to nourish and soften the skin.
Australian made skincare products are free from chemicals, parabens and nausea that can cause skin sensitivity, redness and dryness and are free of toxins that may harm our skin. Using natural skincare products is also better for the environment than using traditional cosmetics. Consumers need to look for certified Australian organic products that contain pure, natural ingredients blended with care and ease of use to ensure the best results for their skin.
Skincare products need antioxidants to protect the skin from decay and ageing. Skincare products with ingredients rich in natural antioxidants can help prevent and treat signs of ageing as they occur. Rutin has an anti-inflammatory effect and is an important factor in skin problems by breaking down collagen, while elastin increases oil production, which can lead to acne, blemishes and skin discolouration.
By using millennia-old Aboriginal foods for medicinal purposes, you can harvest the embellishing power of these incredible indigenous plant superfoods found in all kinds of skincare, serums and cleansing products in Australia.
There is so much to love about Australia – including the fact that some of the best skin-loving ingredients grow right in our backyards: cockatoo plums, eucalyptus, Tasmanian peppers, pineapples, lemons, myrtle and similar plants. These pure, wild Australian ingredients grow in remote and pristine areas of Australia and are bursting with antioxidants, raising the therapeutic level of our natural skincare to new heights. From the rich fragrance of the eucalyptus tree to the nourishing benefits of marigold, the use and benefits of Australia’s natural ingredients are not lost on the country’s beauty culture.
The use of natural ingredients on the face is one of the easiest ways to encourage healthy, beautiful skin. It gives me great pleasure to be able to develop strong skincare products that help to regenerate, rejuvenate and revitalise the skin through the use of ingredients that are unique in Australia. We are an Australian-owned brand and as we develop our superfood skincare range it is important to me that we celebrate our beautiful country and incorporate a range of natural, native ingredients that are only found in Australia.
In addition to replacing hard synthetic skincare products with natural formulations, you can also improve the condition of your skin. The skin needs to be treated gently with products of natural ingredients compared to those with synthetic hard ingredients. Synthetic products often contain parabens and many other questionable ingredients once absorbed into the skin and bloodstream that can lead to serious health problems.
When purchasing organic skin products make sure that the ingredients are checked, no matter how “natural” or “organic” the label says. Calendula oil extract of a Scottish ingredient supplier underlines the importance of traditional herbal ingredients in skincare products.
Calendula oil and extract are used in many skincare products around the world because they treat spots and burns of the skin, alopecias and improve skin elasticity. Kiwi seed extract is a popular ingredient in skincare products in Australia. It is also available in the United States in New Jersey and is rich in antioxidants and vitamins that detoxify the skin when used as a topical skincare product.
