The plum that punches above its weight

Incredible species

A powerhouse of natural nutrients, it’s clear that Davidson Plum is going to be a significant player in skin care advances in the next two years.

This makes the team at Native Extracts very happy, because we early on recognised the versatility and effectiveness of this native plum.

We were the first manufacturer to harness the full plant profile that this incredible species offers.

 And we recently partnered with Olivia Newton John’s beautiful, Retreatment Botanics range, which uses Davidson Plum as a key ingredient.
