Our innovative Cellular Extraction process captures this unique Native Australian fruit’s water-soluble phyto-compounds, including their derivatives, as the exist in the species.

Powerful Pearls from The Byron Bay Hinterland, NSW

Finger Lime (Citrus australasica) is originally native to the Eastern Coast of Australia in the Queensland and New South Wales border region, where it grows as a dense, thorny, understory bush in the area’s subtropical rainforest. Inside each 6-14cm elongated finger-like fruit are tiny vesicles of pulp, bursting with lime juice, but offering more than flavour. They are packed with an interesting combination of phyto-compounds, like antioxidants and amino acids, which the cosmetics industry adores for applications like anti-aging, wound-repair, exfoliation and more!


Could Finger Lime be a Solution to Dehydrated Skin?­

Our innovative Cellular Extraction process leverages the power of nature by capturing the fruit’s unique water-soluble phyto-compounds (natural molecules) as they exist in the cell – we call this, “the natural water-soluble entourage.” Finger Lime Caviar Cellular Extract has been formulated into numerous formats targeting relief to a variety of skin issues. Is it the new natural answer for barrier function impaired skin issues like eczema, psoriasis and extremely dehydrated, dry, flaky skin?
