Newsflash :: Antipodes Certified Organic Skincare Lands In The U.S.
Landing in the U.S. just last month, Antipodes (pronounced an-tip-a-teez) is a high-end certified organic skincare range from New Zealand that’s hailed as “pure New Zealand nature in a bottle”. It’s coveted in Europe and featured in Harper’s Bazaar, VOGUE and Marie Claire to name a few. The new Sephora store in Hong Kong that opened last Friday is offering the line amongst their natural/organic selection indicating they are “impressed by the beautifully fragrant range and the exquisite green wallpaper patterning of the packaging”. Three Antipodes Concept Stores also opened within the last few months in Korea and the company is in talks with some big retailers and spas here, which if any indication means the craze is likely to hit the states soon.
Packed with star ingredients such as bioactive extracts from leaves of the rainforest-dwelling kawakawa, the ancient healer, the manuka flower, mamuka black fern extract and the revolutionary new anti-ager, Vinanza Gold (an antioxidant made from their award-winning sauvignon blanc grapeseeds); all in their preferred carrier avocado oil (or “Green Gold” as they call it) as it’s packed full of chlorophyll, Vitamin E and phytosterols all of which help prevent free radicals, skin damage and aging.
With a background in science and naturopaphy, founder and creator, Elizabeth Barbalich had a desire to beautify life, to promote healthy daily rituals such as our skincare routines with a touch of sophistication, a sense of serenity and a connection with nature.
