It’s the richest source of antioxidants on earth, with 4 times the concentration of a blueberry and even outshining the potency of an orange making it a true super-food. Now that's aussome.
What is Kakadu plum
This antioxidant rich treat’s grown across the top end of Australia, in the Northern Territory.
An interesting fact about the plant is how it’s survived in Australia’s harsh outback. It paralyses the roots of nearby plants to protect itself from threat. Impressive survival skills!
The Kakadu plum’s medicinal properties have lent themselves to years of local harvesting by indigenous Australians, and now, the secret’s out.
Roughly the size of an almond, it’s bursting with goodness, which is why we put a little in our Aussie Aussome Volume Collection.

Australian botanical ingredients
The Kakadu plum comes from Crown Land near Kakadu National Park in Northern Australia and is harvested by hand by indigenous communities. A bush food eaten for millennia by Aborigines, Kakadu Plum now helps realize economic potential for indigenous communities across Northern Australia.
We source our Kakadu plums from a small, family-owned business that hand-picks and sustainably harvests to ensure enough fruit remains for local wildlife to forage and the plants to regenerate.
