Antipodes is now sold in 13 countries to its many passionate devotees including international celebrities. Products continue to win multiple beauty and health industry awards for performance.
Antipodes is pioneering this new niche globally: organic and natural skincare with the level of scientific validation of anti-ageing performance usually only seen in major conventional skincare brands. And key Antipodes anti-ageing skincare products are returning extremely impressive scientific results.
Independent investigations show that they can significantly help to optimise collagen and elastin production and antioxidant activity in human skin cells. These markers are all critical to a more youthful-looking visage. For instance, Worship Skin Defence Antioxidant Serum has been scientifically shown to inhibit oxidative stress in-vitro by up to 90%*. This measure of its antioxidant potency indicates its impressive anti-ageing potential when applied to skin.
Antipodes founder and director Elizabeth Barbalich has driven Antipodes to be a science based company from the start, drawing on her science degree from the University of Canterbury. “Smart consumers deserve a scientific level of proof in the flooded market of natural and organic skincare. We produce the best anti-ageing skincare products we can with authenticity at their core, as their anti-ageing ability has been independently and scientifically validated.”
New Zealand’s unique and pristine environment is like nowhere else on Earth, deep in the South Pacific and the closest nation to Antarctica. Untouched by humans until just a thousand years ago, New Zealand’s pristine flora is bursting with potent antibacterial, anti-fungal and antioxidant-rich properties.
