DESCRIPTION


Also known as billygoat plum, murunga and gubinge, Kakadu plum oil is sourced from the Kimberley region of Western Australia. It is commonly used as a source of food or 'bush tucker' by Australian Aboriginal people. The fruit is round and greenish, and usually eaten raw.

Kakadu Plum oil is not obtained using conventional methods such as pressing or solvent extraction. The first challenge is removing the seed from the fruit which is very labour intensive. Once the tiny seeds are removed the oil yield is very low and added to this, there is a limited supply of raw material.

To overcome these challenges, the manufacturer has developed a process whereby safflower oil is used under high pressure to crack the fruit, remove the seeds and extract the oil-soluble components from the seed.

Brightening Yes, Heal Scars Yes, But Really Heavy Oil

Kakadu plum contains the highest possible amount of vitamin C in all fruits, so i am trying it on midges bite scars that i acquired on a short holiday in Far North Queensland last summer. It does work but the oil is quite heavy so takes a very longgggg time to absorb. I fix this by applying a thin layer of body lotion over it, which helps absorb faster than applying oil alone.
