Kakadu plum (Terminalia ferdinandiana), also called the gubinge, is a flowering plant that is native to Australia. It grows in the tropical woodlands of north-western Australia. Kakadu plum has been used as a traditional bush food and bush medicine for millennia. The fruit has especially high levels of vitamin C.
Collagen is a structural property, making up over 75% of our skin and giving it shape. Collagen acts like a glue within the body – working to strengthen elasticity, as well as aiding the replacement of dead skin cells. Collagen is the essential nutrient that enables active skin care, healthy hair and strong nails.
Our natural marine collagen peptide capsules contain Type I collagen which is the best of the 3 collagen types for active skin care renewal.
Wild Atlantic codfish (Gadus morhua)
Yes, our natural collagen is made from fish that are fully sustainable. Each batch of the wild caught cod has a Catch certificate / Producer declaration. We can trace each batch back to the fishing vessel that caught the fish.
Yes, each batch of our collagen is tested against the EU and Australia/New Zealand standard for heavy metals and is passed as safe for consumption.
No, natural collagen always has an animal origin.
No, they are odourless, no taste, no mess capsules.
Wild marine collagen is superior to farmed collagen. Marine collagen has higher absorption and bioavailability, due to its smaller particle size. Collagen from fish is absorbed up to 1.5 times more efficiently in the body than collagen from other animals such as beef.
Most vitamin C supplements on the market use synthetic vitamin C or ascorbic acid. The majority of this synthetic Vitamin C is originally derived from GMO corn and processed with chemicals like acetone.
Synthetic Vitamin C is simply a stripped down, isolated version of vitamin C; devoid of the micro-nutrients, dietary fibre and phytochemicals that are found in vitamin-rich wholefoods.
Rare by Nature Kakadu plum capsules contain only the flesh of the fruit, not the seed and the husks. The plums are delicately air-dried to preserve nutrients and then milled into a powder and encapsulated.
No fillers, no additives. 100% Organic Kakadu Plum, an organic vitamin C powder with nothing added or taken away.
Vitamin C is important for the activation of two key enzymes, which are needed for natural collagen synthesis, which starts inside the cell. Without vitamin C (and also iron), the function of the enzymes is inactivated, and natural collagen cannot be formed.
