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.
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%.
