Meet Antipodes: Plant-Powered Skincare backed by Science

Few brands have mastered the art of harnessing natural ingredients to achieve clinically-proven results. But New Zealand-based skincare brand Antipodes has long led the way with their sustainably-sourced and certified organic formulations.

Antipodes’ story began when founder and CEO Elizabeth Barbalich was searching for natural skincare that offered the same benefits as conventional skincare without synthetic and polluting ingredients. Elizabeth’s personal hunt led to her creating a range of natural and scientifically-backed formulations using pure ingredients sustainably sourced in New Zealand.

“For 15 years, Antipodes has said no to toxins in our products” says Elizabeth. “We’ve never compromised on our clean formulations and sustainability has been our baseline since day one. Thanks to 100% nature sourced ingredients, independent third-party audits of our credentials and sophisticated formulations that meet the needs of women seeking actual results from natural skincare, our products are continually elevated above this standard.”

Sustainability is at the brand’s core – from how they source ingredients to their packaging. Antipodes work with organic farmers who practice sustainable farming methods so their ingredients benefit from better soil quality and less pollution. And the brand’s packaging mantra is “low consumption, high quality” – their glass bottles and jars and aluminium tubes are fully recyclable, and their recyclable boxes are sourced from sustainable forests and are printed with eco-vegetable inks.

With their entire range independently certified as organic, vegetarian or vegan, you can be confident that what you’re putting on your skin is free from pesticides and synthetic chemicals.

Here are some of the Boop team’s favourites…
