The Kakadu plum—aka the gubinge or billy goat plum—grows natively across Northern Australia. It's been a traditional healing remedy of the Indigenous people for thousands of years thanks to its ah-mazing antibacterial and anti-inﬂammatory properties.
Dubbed a "super food," there is no other fruit worldwide that produces the same potent levels of vitamin C (the Kakadu plum contains 3000mg of vitamin C per 100g of fruit which is over FIFTY TIMES the concentration found in oranges), antioxidants and bioactives.
It is used most commonly in skincare again for its antioxidant features, but also to brighten and plump the skin, giving it a youthful appearance. Try one of these Aussie buys:
