Antipodes Scientific Organic Beauty is founded on two words: “Love Nature.” Those two words guide the beautiful Kiwi brand in everything they do. Their unique formulations are inspired by the natural beauty of New Zealand: an exotic, fresh and new world Antipodean nation. It's elemental to the substance and style of their products, so they're doing everything they can to care for it responsibly – from the full traceability of ingredients from sustainably cultivated plants, to local production and recyclable packaging.

Antipodes have found the answer to anti-ageing natural skin solutions in New Zealand’s nature. They carefully select bioactive extracts from ecologically grown native plants to create skincare products that have been clinically proven to help promote youthful skin. What’s more, they go to considerable trouble to use natural preservative compounds instead of synthetic, which are both better for you and the environment.
New Zealand’s world-famous manuka, totara, kiwi, kowhai and mamaku black fern are just some of the amazing native ingredients that offer a powerhouse of nutrients to your skin. But perhaps the most extrodinary found in Antipodes formulations is the revolutionary antioxidant extract Vinanza Grape®, from native sauvignon grapeseeds. Results from independent clinical trials show Vinanza Grape® improves elasticity and firmness in the skin by 16%.*

Much of Antipodes is certified organic by the independent government body AsureQuality Ltd – one of the leading providers of food safety and biosecurity services in the southern hemisphere.
