Dragon's Blood Extract
Dragon's Blood Tree is a slow-growing endangered beautiful species from the isolated Socotra archipelago off the horn of Africa where one third of its plant life is found nowhere else in the world. The famous red sap that it exudes has wound healing capacities with flavonoids (phenolic compounds that are anti-inflammatory, reduce free radicals (anti-ageing) and are UV protective). It also boasts anti-bacterial, anti-viral (heals herpes), radio protective and antioxidant qualities.
About Australian Bush Extracts
For nearly 6 warm months during the dry season, plants have to survive on minimal rain in Northern Australia. Bush plants produce large quantities of antioxidants in this harsh and arid environment for self-preservation. In this pristine, unpolluted environment, the Kakadu plum thrives, producing fruit with the highest vitamin C content of any plant in the world. There is a big difference in wild harvested fruit and commercially grown plantation varieties.
Aboriginal Australians understand the special qualities of bush tucker and are now reaping the benefits by hand-picking fruit as a business venture. Dr Serene sources products directly from the local communities.
Protect and nurture your skin with Dr Serene’s K-DU Skincare Range with concentrated wild harvested Australian Bush Extracts.
The Kakadu plum has the highest known vitamin C concentration of any single natural food source in the world! For thousands of years, native Aboriginal Australians used the Kakadu plum extensively as a food source and also for traditional medicine and healing on the skin.
Due to its high vitamin C content, quandong was an essential food source for native Aboriginal Australians, and was also used for its medicinal properties in treating skin sores, boils, and aid against the effects of rheumatism. In particular, quandong extract is well known for its antibacterial properties.
Similar to that of tea tree and eucalyptus oils, fragonia has shown to be effective at relieving muscle and joint pain, and in relieving the effects of colds and flu. Considered to be a very special oil by native Aboriginal Australians, fragonia oil was thought to balance and unblock emotions and be a 'tonic for the soul'.
blue cypress oil
Aboriginal Australians have used blue cypress oil for thousands of years, due to its powerful skin moisturising properties. The oil protects, relaxes, and soothes skin from the harsh desert climate. As the oil is non-toxic, non-irritating, and non-sensitising, it is regarded as very gentle and is suitable for all skin types.
The lilly pilly has great astringent properties that improve firmness of the skin, whilst its high vitamin C and fruit acid content create great anti-ageing effects to keep skin looking radiant and youthful.
australian kiwi fruit
Kiwis contain large amounts of vitamin C, which helps your body produce collagen (a connective tissue protein that helps to firm your skin, slowing the appearance of ageing). They're also a good source of vitamin E, which has been shown to decrease the appearance of facial lines, the depth of wrinkles, and reduce UV-induced skin cancer.
Kunzea oil is considered as one of our national treasures. It was used by the native Aboriginal Australians to relieve red, dry, and irritated skin conditions, and to relieve muscular pain and tightness. It is thought that Kunzea oil can assist the release of deep-seated physical and emotional pain and works well with Australian Sandalwood oil for this purpose.
Australian macadamia oil
Macadamia oil has a plethora of benefits, including improving heart health, boosting energy levels, improving digestive processes, boosting bone health, stimulating circulation, protecting eye health, preventing chronic diseases, and optimising the immune system.
Australian Sandalwood Oil
This warm and beautifully scented oil boasts many properties that make it therapeutically valuable in both emotional and physical domains. It's an antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, astringent, diuretic, emollient, expectorant, sedative, and tonic.
The Latin name of lavender is 'lavare', which means 'to wash'. The health benefits of lavender essential oil include its ability to eliminate nervous tension, relieve pain, disinfect the scalp and skin, enhance blood circulation, and treat respiratory problems.
Jojoba has been known as 'Nature's Secret to Youthful Skin.' It's a natural hypoallergenic and contains powerful antioxidants. Omega 6 & 9 fatty acids, and Vitamins A, D and E. As a result, when jojoba is applied to skin, it puts back what ageing takes away, working immediately to begin restoring youthful looking skin, naturally.
Called 'the Fruit of the Angels', the papaya offers not only the luscious taste and sunlit colour of the tropics, but it is a rich source of antioxidants such as carotenes, Vitamin C & B, folate, potassium, magnesium, and fibre. Together, these nutrients promote the health of the cardiovascular system and also provide protection against cancer.
