Meet skincare’s bright new king of vitamin C: Kakadu plum.
There’s no match for this rare super-fruit. A keystone ingredient in our Luminous Complexion Toner, Kakadu plum is packed with benefits for every complexion and skin type.
It’s the secret weapon you need to reclaim a youthful glow and reveal your inner radiance!
What is Kakadu Plum Extract?
Kakadu plums are nutrient-dense fruit from northwestern Australia, sometimes called billy goat plums or salty plums. Unlike the fat, purple plums you may be picturing, Kakadu are yellow-green and adorably small, about the size of an olive or cherry.
A traditional part of the Aboriginal diet, Kakadu plums can be eaten raw, but their flavor is on the tart side — a little citrusy, a little appley, and even a touch floral. As such, they’re more ideal for jams, drinks, and prepared desserts.
...But good luck finding Kakadu jam anywhere in the northern hemisphere!
Kakadu plums are little known outside of Australia, only in recent years gaining an international reputation for their profound health benefits.
The secret that makes Kakadu plums so valuable is their incredible nutrition. To survive the harsh Australian climate, Kakadu developed a dense concentration of nutrients and vitamins. They are rich in antioxidants, potassium, and dietary fiber, not to mention insane amounts of vitamin C.
In fact, Kakadu boast the highest levels of vitamin C of any natural source on Earth — up to 55 times the amount of vitamin C in oranges!
No wonder they’re considered a superfood. We’re gonna need a Kakadu smoothie, stat!

How Kakadu Plum Benefits Your Skin
The Aboriginal people of Australia have used Kakadu plums medicinally for hundreds of years. From flu relief to soothing antiseptic balms, Kakadu have excelled in a variety of holistic treatments.
Now Kakadu plums are proving just as useful in the realm of skincare! Their intense supply of nutrients provide an answer to almost any skincare need.
Anti-aging: Kakadu plum helps reduce your wrinkles and fine lines with a collagen boost. Meanwhile, vitamin C and other antioxidants fight off photoaging by neutralizing free radicals — harmful molecules that destabilize your skin cells. Skip the environmental damage, and let Kakadu plum maintain your youthful glow!
Anti-inflammatory: Thanks to their high antioxidant levels, Kakadu plums are the natural enemy of redness and inflammation. This makes Kakadu ideal for sensitive skin types, especially those with inflammatory conditions like acne or eczema.
Immune-boosting: Vitamin C is fantastic for your immune system, skin included. The skin is your body’s first line of defense, but its immunity can be damaged by environmental factors like UV rays. Topical vitamin C helps preserve your skin’s immunity, keeping it strong to protect you from threats...like acne-causing bacteria!
Fades dark marks: Vitamin C impedes production of melanin, aka the skin pigment behind your dark marks. Applying vitamin C topically — say, through our Kakadu-rich Luminous Complexion Toner — can help your hyperpigmentation fade into the past.
Brightening: Perk up your tired skin with vitamin C. It’s known to smooth and balance uneven skin tone, brightening your overall complexion.
Prevents scarring: The vitamin C in Kakadu plums even helps speed up wound healing. If you struggle with blemishes, this could make all the difference in preventing acne scars. Healthy skin recovery reduces your risk of scarring or further infection.
Sourcing the Best Kakadu Plum
Clearly, all the vitamin C and antioxidants from Kakadu plums can serve as loyal allies on your skincare journey. But not all vitamin C formulations are effective. Some vitamin C products use cheap synthetic alternatives or contain only trace amounts of the vitamin.
That’s not good enough for your precious skin!
Forget the weak, man-made stand-ins. Vitamin C from Kakadu plums is the real deal, natural and concentrated enough that your complexion can soak up every benefit.
And at Averr Aglow, our Kakadu plum is a head above the rest.
We source our Kakadu plum extract directly from Australian suppliers, who draw it out using the innovative “cellular extraction” method. This method preserves the plums’ active compounds without stressing the plant cells or compromising quality.
The resulting extracts hold the highest level of purity and potency. Accept no substitute!
Adding Kakadu Plum to Your Skincare Routine
Kakadu plums are the gold standard of skincare ingredients. But how can you take advantage of them in your daily routine?
