Inside Out Beauty With Antipodes
Tuesday, October 17th 2006
Skin: it's your body's largest and most responsive organ.
It's subject to so many changes throughout your life - depending on age, life events and environmental exposure. The cycles of the sun, the moon and the seasons all affect our skin and it's constantly evolving and responding to your care and protection.
At Antipodes we believe that a sensible, holistic approach to skincare is best. Your freshest complexion will come as a result of daily skincare rituals made within a balanced lifestyle - drinking lots of water, eating plenty of fruit and vegetables, and limiting your exposure to free radicals and toxins in your diet and environment.
Breathing in fresh, clear air - with respect for the sun's harmful rays - and exercising regularly, whether you prefer to run or practice yoga, will resurrect your skin's circulation. Take time to relax throughout your day, and cleanse your body and your mind.
Connect with Nature
It is much more challenging to develop beautiful and effective products that do not subscribe to mainstream cosmetic chemical ingredients: consideration, thought and empathy with plants is our goal for each and every Antipodes product.
Our Divine Face Oil features smart, natural, sensory products that your skin can breathe through. Your skin will feel exquisitely alive and vital, and glow with good health.
Our primary carrier oil is the stunning emerald green 100% pure extra virgin avocado oil from New Zealand. In fact, the super-nourishing oil of the avocado pear has such extraordinary properties that we've used it right across our range.
Rich and deeply-penetrating it is composed of essential fatty acids which our skin loves, as well as being packed with vitamins A, B1, B2, D and E and the antioxidant chlorophyll.
The spirit of Antipodes is the essence or 'soul' of the plants we use - natural essential oils that circulate within aromatic herbs and flowers. We use only the best available aromatic oils, sourced globally and combined with the highest quality local oils to create sensory experiences and exotic New Zealand fragrances.
