Native Ingredients are Good for Your Skin

Posted

If kale and acai berry were having a moment as the best food for us to consume, now it’s about the best food to put on your skin.

Welcome to the age of skin food, where science, consumers and companies are starting to understand that what you put on your body matters as much as what you put into it.

While the medicinal and nutritional benefits of native ingredients have been understood by indigenous communities for a long time, it’s only in the last few years that the residents of Australia have started to understand the role these can play in their own health and wellbeing. And while this started through nutrients that could be beneficial to the diet and medicinal in helping to heal common diseases and physical distress, now there is something bigger: native ingredients for the skin.

Here’s what some of these native ingredients can do for you from the outside in:

Kakadu Plum

  • Good for skin firming and complexion, adds radiance and helps reduce wrinkles
  • The fruit with the highest quantity of Vitamin C in the world, it’s no surprise that this native ingredient is also good for your skin. Vitamin C is an important nutrient in collagen production and also acts as a potent antioxidant.

Davidson Plum

  • Good for reducing skin damage, fighting wrinkles, and decreasing UV damage.
  • High in antioxidants, these are compounds which can remove the oxidative damage caused to cells by things such as poor diet, sun exposure or toxic overload to the skin. Removing these means healthier, glowing skin left behind!

Lemon Myrtle

  • Good for anti-aging, anti-wrinkle, serums, and skin repair
  • The powerhouse ingredient in Lemon Myrtle is Citral, a naturally occurring oil which lends the natural lemon fragrance. This allows lemon myrtle products to be produced without synthetic fragrances using only natural ingredients.

Wattleseed

  • Good for fighting inflammation, aging skin and wrinkles, as well as for promoting better hydration.
  • As an antioxidant, and protein, Wattleseed fights unwanted free radicals which can lead to skin damage, while simultaneously offering the building blocks necessary to create healthy skin cells.
