Wild-Harvested Australian Kakadu Plum Vitamin C SerumRegular price $84.00
30 ml | 1 fl. oz
Kakadu Plum is the richest source of Vitamin C of any known plant. Being Wild Harvested, the plums we use have exceptionally high levels of phyto-nutrients.
Founder's Formula Wild-Harvested Kakadu Plum Vitamin C Serum is also formulated with Waratah Extract (Telopea speciosissima), which is a powerful natural anti-oxidant with multiple benefits for skin, and Finger Lime Caviar Extract (Citrus australasica), itself a rich source of Vitamin C, but Finger Lime Caviar is also naturally high in Ferulic Acid which helps stabilise the Vitamin C in the serum.
Kakadu Plum fruit contains not just ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) but also a mix of bioflavonoids that occur together in nature and combine to enhance the formula's efficacy. Bioflavonoids may assist the transport of Vitamin C.
Importantly, Founder's Formula Wild-Harvested Australian Kakadu Plum Vitamin C Serum also contains insoluble fiber which helps to stabilise the Vitamin C and makes it easier for the skin to tolerate ascorbic acid.
The insoluble plant fibre is the reason why the Founder's Formula Wild-Harvested Kakadu Plum Vitamin C Serum is more suitable for sensitive skins than other Vitamin C serums. Synthetic forms of ascorbic acid are unbuffered and can be very harsh on sensitive skins.
These are the reasons why the results are better from a natural Vitamin C serum than with a serum formulated with a synthetic Vitamin C powder.
Nature truly is better.
- Suitable for All Ethnicities.
- Fragrance-Free. Vegan. Never Tested on Animals.
- Certified Organic/Spray-Free/Wild-harvested.
Please Note: Approximately 1 in 50 people are sensitive to Vitamin C. Founder's Formula Wild-Harvested Kakadu Plum Vitamin C Serum is a natural, very potent extract which has been found to be far less irritating than the synthetic forms of Vitamin C used in other formulas. Many people, (including our Founder who has ultra-sensitive skin!), who are usually unable to tolerate Vitamin C serums and face products, find Founder's Formula Wild Harvested Kakadu Plum Vitamin C Serum is less likely to cause irritation. We believe this is because the insoluble fibre in the fruit extract buffers the ascorbic acid. We have also formulated the serum in a base of organic Aloe Vera, which provides additional buffering, calming and soothing. However, if redness or irritation occurs, do stop use immediately and apply Aloe Vera or our Tasmanian Pepper Berry CALM to quickly calm.
WHAT IT DOES
- Reduces uneven skin tone, rough texture and improves general dullness.
- Protects against photo-aging.
- Reduces the appearance of fine lines and acne scars.
- Builds collagen and elastin which are naturally occurring protein fibers that help keep skin plump and firm.
- Inhibits dark spots and hyper-pigmentation. With continued use prevents dark spots from forming and fades brown spots without altering normal skin pigmentation.
- As a powerful anti-oxidant it reduces cell death and cell injury, the major cause of aging.
Vitamin C helps reduce skin issues caused by UV exposure such as redness, signs of sun damage (such as pigmentation and collagen loss).
Use 1-2 drops on a clean face each morning under other skin care. If you have not previously used a Vitamin C Serum we recommend initially applying 1-2 drops 2 to 3 times per day for the first few days until the cells' reservoir of Vitamin C is filled. After this, Vitamin C in cells has an approximate four day half-life and only 1-2 drops top up each morning is needed.
IMPORTANT: The skin will only absorb as much Vitamin C as it needs. Using high % Vitamin C serums may irritate the skin and will NOT force the skin cells to take in more Vitamin C than is ideal for good skin health. If your skin is dull and dry or your nutrition is poor, and you are concerned that your skin needs higher amounts of Vitamin C, we recommend you use your Vitamin C serum on clean skin twice a day. A little applied more often is better than a high % applied only once.
- Pair with Founder's Formula Australian Botanicals Nourishing Facial Oils, containing Vitamin E. (Vitamin E is an oil-based vitamin/anti-oxidant while Vitamin C is a water-based vitamin/anti-oxidant.)
- Pair also with Centipeda and Snowflower Australian Clay Mask used weekly to manage uneven skin tone, or whiteheads and blackheads, or clogged pores.
If you are using more than one serum in your routine, it is fine to mix them together and apply as one. Skin can multi-task and each serum has targeted benefits and will not cancel out the other. After water-based serums, follow with oils, then moisturiser if desired. (Moisturiser is not essential after serums and oils and is a personal preference.)
Always finish with an SPF+30 in the mornings.
Storage: To extend the life of your Founder's Formula natural oils and serums, store in a cool, dry, dark place, preferably a fridge.
