Written by Caroline Davies

Move over Kakadu Plum because there’s a new Australian skincare ingredient stealing the crown. Kangaroo Paw Flower is currently Australia’s most wanted homegrown beauty Botanical - and the latest plant powerhouse to enter skincare’s hall of fame.

Australia is world famous for its dramatic, breathtaking and diverse landscape. It’s also the perfect ecosystem for growing some of the world’s most beautiful native plants. Not only are they rare and spectacular to behold - but many of these plants also hold the secret to radiant, glowing skin. ‘A-Beauty’ (Australian Beauty), was a major phenomenon in 2021, thanks to the goodness of our local, homegrown ingredients. Lots of plants and fruits grown on Australian soil are rich in active nutrients that benefit the skin in countless ways. Kangaroo Paw Flower is the latest Botanical making it’s mark, thanks to its intensive regeneration power. 

 

Kangaroo Paw Flower Extract

Homegrown in Western Australia

Kangaroo Paw Flower (Anigozanthos Flavidus) is native to the South-West region of Western Australia. It blooms into furry flowers in striking shades of yellow, green and red. As the name would have it, this beautiful wild plant resembles the shape of a Kangaroo’s curved fingers. Native Kangaroo Paw Flower is abundant, highly sustainably sourced and certified organic. The flower both produces seeds easily and has the ability to revive damaged soil. Research has now shown the plant can be used to optimise the regenerative power of skin, too.

A rich Botanical history

Thousands of years ago, Aboriginal tribes originally harnessed this special plant’s properties to help with skin repair. It’s special soothing and restorative properties are making it one of the most highly sought-after ingredients of today. Traditionally, some Australian Aborigines like the Noongar people still use the flowers in recipes and eat the nutritious roots for health benefits.

What does Kangaroo Paw Flower do for your skin?

In both skincare and cosmetics, Kangaroo Flower Extract can help the skin visibly regenerate itself more effectively. The flower is also rich in Ferulic Acid, a potent Antioxidant, and Linoleic Acid, a good source of Omega-6 Fatty Acids. Kangaroo Paw Flower is full of nourishing fatty Acids that are essential when it comes to keeping your skin looking its healthiest. We formulated our Restore PRO range with this as the hero ingredient for all of these incredible reasons. It can do all of this for your skin and more.
