Key ingredients

  • Mānuka honey

    Leptospermum scoparium

    • Antibacterial
    • Anti-inflammatory
    • Hydration

    Unique to New Zealand, this world-famous superfood contains a wellspring of properties that benefit health and skin.

    Our manuka honey is collected by bees from the flowers of the manuka tree, which grows in remote terrain throughout New Zealand. The honey is sourced sustainably by our responsible partners, who are based just several hours from Antipodes HQ and known for their integrity-based approach.

    Manuka honey hydrates, moisturises, nourishes, rejuvenates, and restores skin’s natural glow – making it an essential cruelty-free skincare ingredient to promote a healthy visage. Its antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties make it the ideal ingredient for helping to address the appearance of skin blemishes; whilst its role as a natural humectant helps draw vital moisture into the skin.

  • Plant hyaluronic acid

    Holds up to 1000 times its weight in water

    • Hydrates
    • Freshens & plumps
    • Protects against moisture loss

    Hyaluronic acid is a polysaccharide found naturally in the human body as a major component of skin, eyes, and joints.

    It has powerful moisture retaining properties, with the ability to hold up to 1000 times its weight in water. It is also viscoelastic, a unique consistency that both flows and stretches. This powerful molecule is the body’s super hydrator, key to boosting water levels in the skin and keeping skin fresh and plumped.

    We use only natural hyaluronic acid that is plant-based, cruelty-free, and free from GMOs – making it suitable even for vegan beauty products. It’s produced from the fermentation of a bacterium found in soil and roots. The bacteria are collected and fed a sugar solution in the lab, which triggers a fermentation process leading to the creation of high-quality hyaluronic acid.

  • Harakeke flax

    Native New Zealand botanical

    • Hydrates
    • Balances
    • Soothes

    A native New Zealand flax commonly found in lowland wetlands and coastal areas, harakeke leaves have been traditionally woven into mats, bags, ropes and fishing lines, while the gel extracted from its leaves has been used to treat burns, boils, wounds and skin disorders such as eczema.

    Harakeke produces a cool, clear gel that is rich in omegas, helping to enhance hydration and promote softer, fresher skin. The key lies in natural plant sugars called polysaccharides, which help prevent trans-epidermal water loss in the skin. Harakeke is also naturally astringent, helping to cleanse skin and regulate oil, encouraging a blemish-free complexion.
