Hello

I'm a beauty journalist blogging about what really works from cosmetics to cosmetic surgery.

Night time care from 'Down Under'!

ANTIPODES

What is it? 

A New Zealand based, Certified Organic, ‘bunny-friendly’  beauty brand which harnesses anti-oxidant rich Vinanza Grape extract from the Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc Grapes. It uses Green Gold Avocado Oil as a carrier and all the products are created from sustainable renewable plant sources.

Hero product? 

The Avocado Pear Nourishing Night Cream (£32.95, naturisimo.com) which  has been shown to stimulate synthesis of collagen production in human fibroblast skin cells by up to 92%. It’s won a fair deal of awards too from a Harper’s Bazaar Beauty Award to a Green Beauty Bible Award too.  

Why the name? 

Antipodes®, is locally owned and made in New Zealand and a significant number of its pure ingredients are sourced locally from New Zealand and throughout Australasia, so as a brand it perfectly encapsulates the Antipodes. 

 

How new is it? It launched in the UK in 2011.  


I’d try... The Kiwi Seed Oil Eye Cream, (£24.99), which along with the kiwi oil, combines 100% pure avocado oil, manuka and carrot seed and has been scientifically shown to stimulate synthesis of collage production by up to 82%.
