Antipodes Nirvana Hand & Body Wash Elements of Beauty:
Hibiscus Flower: Vivid pink or white blooms of the hibiscus are found flowering in summertime in New Zealand. They bring brightness not only to nature, but also to your skin's appearance. Antipodes' premium extract of subtropical hibiscus flower with pyruvic organic acid is a natural astringent that sloughs off dead skin cells to brighten, freshen, clarify and plump your complexion.
Kiwi Seed Oil: The high concentrations of Omega 3 in the oil extracted from the seeds of kiwifruit make it the perfect ingredient for natural skincare as it can dramatically help to maintain moisture in the skin. Kiwifruit seed oil contains around 60% of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), as well as being a rich source of Vitamins C and E – all beneficial in optimising your most beautiful visage.
Harekeke: The tall, flame-red blooms of harekeke or New Zealand flax attract the majestic tui with its glorious birdsong. Its nectar was once used to sweeten Maori food and we love that it brings sweet relief to skin with its softening and antibacterial effects. You'll find it growing abundantly in urban and rural areas in Aotearoa, especially in swamps and grassland.

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.
