Antipodes Ananda Antioxidant Rich Gentle Toner Elements of Beauty:
Waiwera mineral water: Voted the ‘World’s Best Bottled Water’*, Waiwera captures this naturally mineral-rich artesian water at source – an ancient aquifer in New Zealand’s North Island that is one of the most significant in the South Pacific. The water comes from deep within the earth and is blessed with a variety of beneficial minerals. Magnesium and calcium in particular are a valuable way to deliver beneficial nutrients and antioxidants to the skin’s epidermal layer. Antipodes use it to address the drying signs of ageing because it makes for a powerful boost to your skin’s own hydration levels, and it’s perfect for even sensitive or sensitised skin conditions. * Voted 'World's Best Water' of premium bottled waters, Decanter magazine (2008).
Mamaku black fern: The distinctive curled fronds of this large black tree fern are a strong symbol of New Zealand nature. Their shape has given rise to the koru, a symbol of regeneration in Maori art and craft – just as the mamaku extract Antipodes use brings new life to skin cells. For your skin it is firming, protecting and a powerful way to generate cell growth.
Raspberry seed oil: The amazing oil from the tiny seeds of raspberries is blessed with natural UVA sun-filtration to help protect your skin from sun damage. Antipodes summer berries are organically grown and cold pressed. High levels of Vitamin A give this oil a bright orange colour, and it also boasts beneficial essential fatty acids and Omegas 3 and 6. It’s a skin-repairing antioxidant and a wonderfully nourishing moisturiser.

Plant Ingredients Each and every premium botanical ingredient in an Antipodes skincare product earns its place. The sustainably cultivated plant extracts not only have to be certified organic or genuinely natural, but they must also be able to enhance your skin’s natural health and beauty – which is how their effective beauty products achieve such extraordinary scientific validation. Bioactive extracts from New Zealand's plant species that have evolved in Antipodean isolation over millions of years go through a rigorous selection process. The extracts have natural antibacterial, anti-fungal and antioxidant-rich properties: New Zealand’s world-famous manuka, totara, kowhai and mamaku black fern offer a powerhouse of nutrients to your skin. Antipodes also combs the world for potent skin-enhancing ingredients like the vibrant Himalayan goji berry, South America's wrinkle-reducing jojoba, deeply moisturising Australian macadamia nut oil and China's Reishi mushroom of immortality.

Antipodes Vinanza ® Antioxidants
Antioxidants are hot property for your skin: they're a daily defense mechanism in addressing signs of ageing, and they can prevent further harm by helping neutralise the free radicals that can damage your skin's surface. Antipodes introduces these four revolutionary antioxidant ingredients, using them in high-performance products for maximum anti-ageing action:
* Vinanza Grape
* Vinanza Kiwi
* Vinanza Oxifend
* Vinanza Performance Plus.
Revolutionary antioxidants from grape seeds. Because New Zealand’s intense light penetrates its clear skies so strongly, the grape vines work overtime to produce antioxidants to defend against the unusually high UV levels. As a result, their grape seeds contain up to double the levels of polyphenolic antioxidant compounds compared to grape seeds grown anywhere else in the world.
This incredible antioxidant potency is captured in the powerfully anti-ageing extracts Vinanza Grape, Vinanza Oxifend and Vinanza Performance Plus.They're naturally extracted from the seeds of award-winning sauvignon blanc and pinot noir grapes from the blissfully beautiful region of Marlborough.
Revolutionary antioxidants from the superfruit kiwifruit. Kiwifruit are filled with an abundance of healthy nutrients, particularly in their skins. These nutrients, which include a mixture of phenolic antioxidants, have been shown in independent clinical trials to help improve skin’s appearance by lightening skin and reducing redness, age spots and freckling.
Vinanza Kiwi and Vinanza Performance Plus are a pure and natural blend of compounds extracted from the skins of kiwifruit sustainably grown in New Zealand. The extraction process for all Vinanza antioxidants is free of chemicals, harsh solvents and dyes. Using nothing more than pure water, it's also environmentally-friendly and minimises waste.
