Meet the power botanicals in Replenishing Kakadu C Facial Oil

Antiaging & skin soothing Replenishing Kakadu-C Facial Oil

We set out to create a facial oil that delivered truly effective skin care, and at the same time, was very gentle on sensitive skin. Our goal was to create a powerful antioxidant facial oil that delivers visible antiaging results, while simultaneously soothing irritated, inflamed or sensitive skin.

Every botanical skin care ingredient in our new facial oil was scientifically selected for anti-aging effectiveness and skin soothing nourishment. But often the more actives you place in a skin care product, the more chances there are that something will irritate a skin condition, so our competing aims meant lots of research - and testing on our willing (human) volunteers.

The result is a beautiful facial oil that is delivering absolutely stunning results!

Antioxidant rich, Vitamin A + Vitamin C Facial Oil

The list powerful antiaging actives in our facial oil are led by nature’s highest natural source of Vitamin C; Australian Kakadu Plum, a tiny fruit that has been prized by the Aboriginal people of Australia for countless centuries. 

Our other exceptional anti-aging antioxidant actives which all work to create luminous, healthy skin include Vitamin A hero Cacay Oil, Vitamin E rich Acai Berry Oil, and Nigella Sativa which is very high in antioxidants.

Our customers are seeing the results: 

"This is one of the best facial oils I have come across. I really love the earthy natural scent it has, it just melts into your face, it’s not sticky like some. A little really does go a long way. I use it morning and night, after a few weeks my skin was so much softer. x" - Rachel M
"Thank you for the facial oil. Is it just me or do I look younger??! It feels so silky and soft when you apply it - when I got my partner to try it he gave me a hard time for not sharing it earlier! It’s just so lovely!" - Ruby W
"My skin texture is glowing after using this once a day! This facial oil does not dry or over-oil my skin - it makes it balanced and gives you baby smooth skin. Thanks Frankie for your life changing products." - Georgia H

"So happy, I have had to use Hydrocortisone cream on my face for past 30+ years almost daily to keep my face rash from flaring up. Have been using the face oil for two weeks and haven’t needed the medical cream once during that time... I couldn’t be happier with this product. Natural goodness!!" - Michelle M
