Thought you knew all the superfoods? You’ve clocked kale, noted turmeric and are obsessed with acai, but are you crazy about quandong yet? Quandong is not only a superfood but it is reported to be the fruit with the second highest amount of antioxidants ever, only after Kakadu (other Life HQ fave).
Quandong is actually a part of the Sandalwood family and is a beautiful tree that is dispersed through the Australian outback. This stunning red fruit has actually been a staple for Indigenous Australians for up to 50,000 years.
So, what does this superfood do for your skin when used topically?
One of our absolute favourite benefits of this ingredients is that it acts like an AHA (alpha hydroxy acid), which is typically found in animal derived foods, but of course Quandong is plant based. Basically what this means is it acts like an exfoliate and assists in rejuvenating the skin, sans harmful scrubbing
Quandong contains MASS amounts of plant-based vitamin C, which helps to brighten and heal the skin. This is a nourishing natural vitamin C as opposed to powdered version which is in most other products
This amazing ingredient also works to plump the skin as well as lightening dark circles and UV damage which usually comes in the form of sunspots and pigmentation
They are just the top of the list for all the benefits Quandong can give you. This powerful ingredient packs a punch, giving you that glowing, smooth skin we all dream of.
