The story: Antipodes evolved with the birth of my (Elizabeth Barbalich's) three gorgeous children, now aged five, seven and eight. Finding my body depleted of vitamins and minerals, I sought help from a naturopath and an acupuncturist to boost my energy levels as a mother. And it worked wonders - I was amazed to find that I felt happier and healthier at the age of 38 than I did at 20! I wanted to continue with the benefits of a gentler and more holistic lifestyle, so I began searching for other options to what I found was the harshness of the chemical-based skincare I was using.
I'd studied Physical Education and Science at university, so I became very interested in exactly what ingredients were being used and why. It worried me to be putting the chemicals contained in these products onto my skin - and therefore straight into my body. Yet even when I tried some of the best natural ranges on the market, I still couldn't find moisturisers that were sufficient for my skin's needs. I was looking for skincare that would be very hydrating, have effective natural plant ingredients with beautiful fragrances - as well as look gorgeous in my bathroom and bedroom!
The idea of creating my own skincare range that would do all this was sparked when I began training as a naturopath. I loved the research into plants and their extraordinary health benefits. And I was simply overawed by the incredible properties of the under-used oil of the avocado pear, and the beauty and benefits of many other ingredients in the New Zealand environment. I wanted to create exotic fragrances, that were reminiscent of the seasons in Aotearoa.
I travelled twice to India with my family to study the use of essential oils and Ayurvedic medicine and their use in daily life. Not only were the oils sensual and healing for the skin, they also had powerful effects on the emotions. Back in New Zealand I engaged a French perfumer to capture and perfect the gorgeous fragrances I had discovered. I believe that finding the balance of mind, body and spirit is a real key to health and happiness in life.
So I'm thrilled to present the Antipodes range of products to you: smart, natural, sensory skincare that allows us all to Connect with Nature. Skin. It's your body's largest and most responsive organ. It's subject to so many changes throughout your life - like age, life events and environmental exposure. The cycles of the sun, moon and seasons all affect our skin and it is 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 to 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. It's much more challenging to develop beautiful and effective skincare that doesn't subscribe to mainstream cosmetic chemical ingredients, so consideration, thought and empathy with plants is our goal for each and every Antipodes product.
Our range 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 throughout 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. Antipodes means the region of the earth opposite the other. So for you in the Northern Hemisphere, that's us here down south.
We're lucky enough to live in a very special part of the Antipodes: Aotearoa New Zealand. The English translation of the Maori name for New Zealand - Aotearoa - is 'land of the long white cloud'. In our island nation with jagged mountain ranges, native forest, fresh crisp air and clear spring waters the inspiration for Antipodes was born. Aotearoa New Zealand is a country of new ideas, fresh and exciting concepts and inspiring natural beauty - elemental to both the substance and style of Antipodes products. Whatever your immediate environment, surround yourself with love. Because we believe, most importantly, that an enjoyment of life and those around you is always reflected externally.
