Australian Native Extracts in the Spotlight

by Samantha Fricker
Let’s face it, our native plants survive (and thrive) in one of the most isolated and harsh environments in the world.  So, it’s no surprise to learn that Australian plants punch way above their weight when it comes to phyto-compounds, antioxidants and vitamins.
 
Over the past couple of years, we have been slowing moving away from the traditional extracts to join the advanced innovation of Cellular Extraction – wow that’s a mouthful right, but really what does this mean? 
 
Our supplier of native extracts have introduced this exciting new technology of botanical extraction. This process does not compromise the integrity of the fruit or plant, unlike the old methods of drawn out percolation or heat, where the raw material is often left stewing for days, fermenting and breaking down. The new Cellular Extractions are clean, fresh and rapid and have transformed what we can derive from fruits and plants.
 
So in short, the native extracts we use in our skincare products are true to nature, just the way nature designed them.
 
Here’s our top 3 Australian Native Extracts that has us excited and you should be too!

Kakadu Plum boasts the highest source of natural Vitamin C in the world today.  It is wild harvested by Indigenous communities in outback Australia and is amazing for brightening the skin, helping to reduce hyperpigmentation and is also known to be an anti-ageing fighter!

This plum is just brimming with natural phyto-compounds including Tartaric Acid, a natural fruit acid that is a gentle enzyme exfoliant, which helps stimulates cell turnover – perfect for anti-ageing. It also contains Quercetin, which is a flavonoid known for lowering inflammation which can help with reducing skin redness.  The antioxidant potential can help strengthen skin barrier function, making it look healthy, glowing and vibrant.
