Native to the south-west of Western Australia, Kangaroo Paw is full of essential fatty acids which are the building blocks of healthy cell growth. Also rich in linoleic acid, an omega 3 fatty acid known for its ability to strengthen the skins’ barrier and lock in moisture. As our bodies can’t naturally make this essential fatty acid, linoleic acid needs to be applied topically in order to receive its full benefits. Kangaroo paw is also rich in ferulic acid, a potent antioxidant.
