Orange, edible, sweet, and tart…we’re dedicating this love letter to the Native Orange Pearl. Commonly known as the Cockspur thorn, this species of shrub is found throughout New South Wales and is happiest in tropical forests—offering a traditional food source and a potent antioxidant ingredient when used topically.
Curious as to why this fruit is so special?
The incredibly nutritionally dense Native Orange Pearl is well-loved for its ability to stimulate collagen, reduce puffiness and dark eye circles, and calm acne breakouts. Stay with us here as we jump into the nutritional integrity behind these powerhouse ingredients. Cocktail trivia anyone? Here are some of our favourite elements of the Orange Pearl:
