They say ‘beauty is only skin deep’, but what goes on your skin goes a lot further than you might think.
The skin is the largest organ of your body and every time you put on a product, you absorb 60-90 per cent of it into your bloodstream within minutes.
The average person applies 10 products to their skin each day, absorbing around 130 chemicals through the bloodstream.
These toxins build up over a period of time and contribute to a whole range of health conditions, including skin conditions, hormone disorders and liver function problems.
So what should you be looking out for?
Parabens (Methyl, Butyl, Ethyl, Propyl) - preservative
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) and Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES) - foaming agent
Unfortunately these are all common ingredients in many skincare products. However, there is one brand we recommend and stock - Antipodes.
Antipodes is certified organic natural skincare brand made in New Zealand using pure, safe and natural ingredients, including:
nutrient-rich avocado oil
kiwi seed oil
revolutionary antioxidant Vinanza Grape from sauvignon blanc grapes
manuka honey Active 20+
mamaku black fern for cell renewal
crimson pohutukawa for skin conditioning
golden kowhai for high antioxidant bioactivity
omega-rich harakeke New Zealand flax
potent antibacterial totara.
Antipodes is one of the few fully certified organic skincare producers in the world, meaning their skincare contains ingredients grown without chemical pesticides or fertilisers.
Just because it is natural, doesn’t mean it’s not effective. Antipodes also has scientifically validated anti-aging properties, so you don’t have to choose between your looks and your overall health.
