Will Kakadu Brightening Serum help with the visible signs of sun-damage?
Yes! The powerful Gallic acid (a phyto-active within our vitamin C rich ingredients) has excellent skin brightening benefits, helping to significantly reduce the appearance of pigmentation, sun spots and blemishes.
What vitamin c is in your Kakadu Brightening Serum?
When we formulated our Kakadu Brightening Serum, we were determined to produce an ultra-strength serum that harnessed natural vitamin c from a combination of vitamin C rich ingredients.
Our serum contains Australian natives Kakadu Plum, Finger Lime and Desert Lime that are all extremely rich in the natural vitamin C molecule. The molecule is extracted with the unique Cellular Extraction process so the resulting form of vitamin C is stable, active and long lasting. When the plants are extracted this way, they mimic the cell’s natural biomatrix, maintaining the whole entourage of phyto-actives in the plant in their synergistic relationships, offering greater skin benefits than just the isolated ascorbic acid.
In addition, we also include Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate, another stable form of vitamin C in our products to further intensify the vitamin C complex. We have discovered this combination, along with our other potent ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, produces excellent results.
I thought the effectiveness of vitamin c was reduced when exposed to air, is that correct?
Our Kakadu Brightening Serum contains whole-plant cellular extractions of Kakadu Plum, Finger Lime and Desert. These native fruits are rich in naturally occuring Vitamin c, which is much more bioavailable to us.
You are right, traditionally, Vitamin C would start oxidizing as soon as it came in contact with air. But in the Cellular Extraction method we use, the extraction process bio mimics the plant's own cell walls, shielding the extract to preserve the Vitamin C and other antioxidants for up to 12 months.
If you were to leave the product exposed to air it would eventually turn brown but that process would take some time, much more time than it would take the serum to soak into your skin.
Why do I need to use a serum?
Serums are an essential step for optimal skin health and achieving maximum results. Serums contain the highest levels of active and super-concentrated nutrients that deliver the ultimate boost of intensive moisture, vitamins and antioxidants to target your skin concerns while minimising the signs of ageing. Serums are also perfect for replenishing our skin’s natural oils and moisture levels that deplete with age.
What’s the difference between Kakadu Brightening Serum & Restore Serum?
Kakadu Brightening Serum is our lightweight, hydrating oil-free that packs an intense vitamin c punch, as well as a boost of hydration. Restore Serum is our nourishing oil elixir that’s packed with over 15 nutrient dense plant oils, delivering an abundance of vitamins and antioxidants deep into the skin cells. We recommend using both serums together (Kakadu Brightening Serum first and then Restore Serum) as they have different benefits and will replenish both your moisture AND oil levels.
Is this product safe when pregnant & breastfeeding?
Yes! In fact, our entire range is loved by pregnant and breastfeeding women. However, if you do have any concerns, we suggest consulting further with your medical professional as every individual is unique.
When do I apply my Kakadu Brightening Serum?
We recommend applying Kakadu Brightening Serum daily, in the AM + PM. Visit our layering guide to see when, how often and in which order to apply all your product/s.
Do I apply this around my eyes?
Please avoid the eye area when applying your serum. Instead, nurture the delicate skin around your eyes with our Firming Eye Contour Cream - it provides all the hydration & nutrients that your eyes need to feel and look renewed.
