Australian Kakadu Plum (Terminalia ferdinandiana) is the richest source of Vitamin C of any known plant. Being Wild Harvested, the plums Founders Formula use have exceptionally high levels of phyto-nutrients.
WHAT IT DOES
- Reduces uneven skin tone, rough texture and improves general dullness to promote dewy skin
- Reduces the appearance of fine lines and acne scars
- Keeps skin visibly plump and firm
- Visibly reduces dark spots and pigmentation.
- As a powerful anti-oxidant slows the signs of aging.
Founder's Formula Wild-Harvested Kakadu Plum Vitamin C Serum is also formulated with Waratah Extract (Telopea speciosissima) which intensifies the antioxidant activity, and Finger Lime Caviar Extract (Citrus australasica), itself a rich source of Vitamin C, that is also naturally high in Ferulic Acid and helps stabilise the Vitamin C in the serum.
With continued use, Wild-Harvested Kakadu Plum Vitamin C Serum prevents new dark spots from forming and fades brown spots without altering normal skin pigmentation.
Vitamin C helps reduce skin issues caused by UV exposure such as redness, signs of sun damage (such as pigmentation).
The Clinical Studies: 'Gloss value' is the scale used to measure changes in skin luminosity. The average improvement in gloss value in clinical trials of Kakadu Plum Extract with 20 volunteers with an average age of 37 was 17%. On the best volunteer, Kakadu Plum Extract was shown to induce skin luminosity up to 21% after 15 days and up to 30% after 30 days.

A little goes a long way.
Apply 1-2 drops to a cleansed, damp face and neck nightly before moisturiser.
If you are using the serum without first cleansing, then spritz the skin with a toner or mister first before applying.
If you are using more than one serum in your routine, it is fine to mix the serums before applying.
Apply before moisturiser and/or oils. (Always patch test for sensitivity first before applying all over.)
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.
FUN FACT: 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.
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 serums, always follow with moisturiser and/oils to maintain skin barrier function. Always finish with an SPF 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.

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. One reason for this is that the insoluble fibre in the fruit extract buffers the ascorbic acid. Another reason is that the other phyto-nutrients retained in the extract provide calming and soothing protection. Founders Formula 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, wash face with water immediately and stop use. Apply Aloe Vera or CALM Tasmanian Mountain Pepper Berry Serum to quickly calm.
