Vitamin C is one of the most well-known beneficial active ingredients in skincare. Ascorbic acid, is the most effective form of vitamin c when applied to skin but it is also the least stable version. Which is why vitamin C serums can lose their potency or go bad fast.
Enter The Mokosh Kakadu Plum Revival Mask.
What is Kakadu Plum?
Kakadu plum or billy goat plum is flowering plant native to Australia. Kakadu plums boast powerful nutritional and medicinal benefits. The small tart fruit is the world’s richest known source of vitamin C. The vitamin C in Kakadu plum is L-ascorbic acid, the most active form of vitamin C.
Because of its high vitamin C content, kakadu plum has a multitude of skin benefits. Applied topically, kakadu plum helps diminish the look of fine lines, wrinkles, dullness, and uneven skin tone.
Kakadu Plum also contains ellagic acid – a potent antioxidant. “Ellagic acid fights free radicals, hydrates the skin, and prevents damage.” explains Mokosh founder Marion O'Leary.
When it comes to choosing skin care products with kakadu plum, we love this powder face mask from Mokosh Skincare.

Benefits of The Mokosh Kakadu Plum Revival Mask
The Mokosh Kakadu Plum Revival Mask is, firstly, a vitamin C face mask. But it’s so much more than that.
The Kakadu Plum Revival Mask is full of some of the natural world's most potent anti-aging botanicals.
Importantly, this Kakadu plum mask contains the whole fruit. Because the Kakadu face mask is a powder, the vitamin C is not activated until the face mask is mixed with water. This helps ensure the vitamin C remains potent when applied to your skin.
Other potent anti-aging ingredients in the Kakadu plum mask
Maqui Berries: Maqui berry is a potent antioxidant. Richly colored maqui berry is native to South America. It gives the Kakadu plum mask its beautiful deep purple color when mixed with water. “It contains particularly high levels of anthocyanins. Which can help reduce effects of free radicals, that are the main cause of collagen loss. It also offers anti-inflammatory benefits” explains Marion.
Shiitake & Tremella Mushroom: Both shiitake mushroom and tremella are prized for their aging benefits. Mushrooms help improve skin barrier strength, hydrate the skin, and soothe irritation. “In skin care products, Tremella is the botanical alternative to hyaluronic acid” explains Marion. “Shiitake mushroom also has skin brightening properties, helping to reduce patchy pigmentation”.
Gotu kola: Gotu Kola or Centella Asiatica (cica) is a medicinal herb in the Ayurvedic tradition. Cica is a soothing antioxidant that has a myriad of benefits including promoting collagen production.
Aloe Vera: Renowned for its anti-inflammatory benefits, Aloe contains hormone-like substances that speed healing and stimulate the production of collagen, while also containing mucopolysaccharides that can plump the skin.
Spirulina (blue green algae): Spirulina is best known for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits. Applied to skin, spirulina may also boost collagen production and protect collagen and elastin from skin-damaging enzymes.
Is the Kakadu Plum face mask good for all skin types?
The Mokosh Kakadu Plum Revival mask is wonderful for mature skin. However, anyone experiencing dullness or uneven skin texture will benefit from this vitamin c face mask. Use with caution if you have sensitive skin. Vitamin C can cause tingling and redness until tolerance is built.
