Key ingredients

  • Kakadu plum

    Terminalia ferdinandiana

    • Protects
    • Brightens
    • Collagen support

    With up to 100 times the vitamin C of oranges, this powerful Australian superfruit helps powerfully brighten, plump, and protect skin.

    Native to Australia, Kakadu plum is sustainably sourced from the country’s tropical northern regions by indigenous communities. Its potency is the result of extremely high exposure to harmful sun rays, which cause the fruit to develop a self-defence system composed of powerful antioxidant molecules to protect itself from sun-induced free radical attacks.

    As a result of this unique environmental response, Kakadu plum has been shown to contain the world’s highest recorded natural amount of vitamin C – up to 100 times the vitamin C of oranges. Vitamin C combats free radical damage, helping to address pigmentation and brighten skin.

  • Bakuchiol

    Natural vitamin A alternative

    • Smooths fine lines
    • Protection
    • Anti-inflammatory

    An ancient herb known as “Nature’s retinol” for its ability to mimic the skin-smoothing effects of retinol, without irritating skin.

    With roots in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine, bakuchiol is a natural extract sourced from the seeds and levels of the babchi plant which is native to the Indian subcontinent. This cruelty free skincare ingredient boasts antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties which help to smooth and refine skin texture, protect skin from harmful free radical damage, and correct uneven skin tone.

    Bakuchiol is a true gift from nature – because while it has been shown to produce the same benefits as retinol, it carries none of the irritating side effects.

  • Vinanza® Grape & Kiwi

    Grape seeds & kiwifruit skin

    • Brightens
    • Moisture protection
    • Redness reduction

    A revolutionary brightening antioxidant compound.

    Vinanza® Grape & Kiwi is sourced in New Zealand from Marlborough sauvignon blanc grape seeds, high in polyphenolic antioxidants, and the skin of the superfruit kiwi. In clinical tests*, the compound has been shown to have a brightening effect, helping to improve the appearance of skin by decreasing skin redness (erythema), and lightening skin (inhibiting melanin production). Vinanza® Grape & Kiwi has also been shown to improve skin elasticity and decrease transepidermal water loss (TEWL), keeping skin moist and hydrated.

    Irritants: why the coloiur additives ?

    It's not make up so don't put mica, iron oxide and titanium dioxide in it. these are irritants. ditto the fragrance and I think there are other additives that aren't beneficial to the skin .This makes me question the other products too now so I'll be having closer look.

    Does vitaminc C from kakadu plum actually work on skin? Is there any research showing KP is beneificial for skin? Vitamin C is notoriously unstable. If it's non irritating it might be ineffective. Love the other products but unsre about this

    Hi Bo, the vitamin C in Kakadu plum is stable at a wide variety of pH levels, and has higher bioavailability that synthetic versions, which means the skin can more easily absorb the vitamin C from the product. Unlike synthetic sources, Kakadu plum is more likely to contain the full range of phytonutrients that help the body use the nutrient the way nature intended. The protective powers of the antioxidant-rich compound have been proven in in-vitro testing of Glow serum – the serum is scientifically shown in-vitro to inhibit oxidative stress by up to 33% (Trinity Bioactives 2021).

    Mica and iron oxide add a subtle shimmer to the serum. Titanium dioxide is a natural colouring agent. The titanium oxide we use is micronised, so it doesn’t penetrate the skin. Like all our ingredients, these are ethically sourced and deemed safe for use in skincare by independent bodies.

    Seems to work!

    It soaks into my thirsty skin very nicely, and perhaps it does lessen the redness
