Vitamin C is one of the prime and most important ingredients when it comes to your beauty regime.

Once upon a time, Vitamin C was simply a vitamin tablet that you took with your breakfast. At face value, it was nothing more or nothing less. Today, Vitamin C has become a huge trend in the beauty industry and for very good reason. The benefits it holds are endless. From brightening tired skin to helping with sun damage, Vitamin C is the lifesaver that everyone needs to add to their beauty regime.

What exactly is Vitamin C?

Vitamin C is “a potent antioxidant that can neutralise free radicals,” board-certified dermatologist Patricia Wexler explained to Allure. “Because of its antioxidant properties, vitamin C aids in your skin’s natural regeneration process, which helps your body repair damaged skin cells.”

In the same way that we feed our bodies antioxidant-rich foods in order to fight off infections and other bad cells, applying Vitamin C to our skin works in the same way. It contributes to fixing sun damaged skin as well as preventing premature ageing. While working it’s magic to restore and maintain aspects of your skin’s life that you can’t help (sometimes we forget that ageing is a natural process), it also helps to keep your skin strong and firm. It also repairs damaged skin, not just sun-damaged skin, and so can heal open wounds and blemishes that break the skin.

Get your Vitamin C from Oilixia’s Gummy Cleanser

We tried and tested Oilixia’s Gummy Cleanser, to find our how to use it to it’s full extent. The Gummy Cleanser formula is founded on Kakadu Plum Extract, which contains the richest known natural form of Vitamin C. As well as holding all the benefits of Vitamin C, Kakadu Plum Extract has intense levels of phenolic acid and AHA’s which provide skin with a brighter appearance and smoother texture.

In order to create Oilixia’s iconic Gummy Cleanser, the Kakadu Plum used in the process is wild harvested from Australia’s Kimberley Region in the north west of Australia. Indigenous Australians have utilised Kakadu Plum for centuries as a food source. It can also be known as Gubinge, Murunga, or Billygoat Plum. This magical plum is packed tight with antioxidants which the Australian Aborigines incorporated into their diets by eating them raw or blending them into jams. To be classes as ‘wild harvested’, the fruit needs to be hand picked at the optimal time in it’s life-cycle and is never over harvested. This process allows the plant to regenerate naturally and sustainably and makes the Gummy Cleanser’s ingredients unique.

You can shop Oilixia‘s Gummy Cleanser at Indulge Beauty in full-size or travel-size, so you’ll never have to be without your favourite product. You can also pair it up with a facial oil when you choose to shop either the Explore or Glow gift set, which come with the Explorer Blend Facial Oil or the Amazonian Cacay Oil. Both combinations are perfect for keeping your skin in tip-top condition.
