Kakadu Plum benefits for skin creams

The Benefits of Kakadu Plum in Basix

This important ingredient has three main uses

  1. Fights Skin Infections

The inner bark of the Kakadu Plum tree has been used to help cure many skin disorders and infections. Used by tribal shamans to heal wounds, sores and boils. It is an effective ingredient to help control and prevent fungal and bacterial infections. We have chosen this ingredient as a wound healer and to help treat the damage caused by eczema and psoriasis

  1. Skin Repair

Kakadu Plum is rich in phytochemicals like gallic and ellagic acids. Gallic acid contains antibacterial, antiviral, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor, anti-mutagenic properties. These properties help repair damaged skin.  Ellagic acid has anti-carcinogenic effects and we have chosen this to maintain healthy skin.  We have chosen these ingredients to help restore the skin’s elasticity and natural barrier.

  1. Skin Restoration

Packed full of Vitamin C, an essential antioxidant that slows down the ageing process. It stimulates collagen production which can smooth out wrinkles, scars and fine lines. Antioxidants can also help clear pimple causing bacteria.  Since Kakadu Plums contain the best source of Vitamin C, we have carefully selected this ingredient to help restore and rejuvenate damaged skin, treat spots, pimples and to heal blemishes on the skin.
