Antipodes Apostle Sking Brightening Serum Elements of Beauty:
* Waiwera artesian water
* Vinanza Oxifend® is a revolutionary antioxidant-packed extract from the skins of sustainably harvested New Zealand pinot noir red grapes. It’s scientifically proven to completely inhibit inflammatory activity in skin cells, helping reduce the erythema or redness in skin that comes from an inflammatory response to a product or environmental assault. Its potent antioxidant action helps keep cells healthy and oxidised. Vinanza Oxifend® is naturally extracted using a pure process that uses only water to extract the bioactives in their natural form, so they are not damaged by solvents or harsh chemical extraction methods. Freeze-drying of the final product ensures the activity of the extracts is maintained and not destroyed.
* Vinanza Performance Plus®: This compound is natural anti-ageing at its finest. It's scientifically shown to decrease trans-epidermal water loss, leaving your skin moist and hydrated. It's also shown to decrease the melanin production that causes freckling and pigmentation, and decrease undesirable redness or facial flushing*. Vinanza Performance Plus® combines extracts from kiwifruit seeds and antioxidant-packed grape seeds, carefully extracted using a natural process that features only water. * Independent Study by New Zealand Extracts.

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.
