Lovers of premium natural skincare in Hong Kong can rejoice — Antipodes®, the highly innovative New Zealand green beauty brand lauded by Cara Delevingne, Cate Blanchett, Elle Macpherson, Sam Smith and Georgia May Jagger, is now available at Watsons, Asia’s leading health and beauty retailer.
The best-selling products from the thriving certified organic and premium natural skincare company are now exclusively available at 10 Watsons Personal Care Stores, with more stores to come over the next few months.
Women in Hong Kong can now discover skin-enhancing ingredients produced in the pristine, pollution-free New Zealand environment, such as nutrient-rich avocado oil, soothing and hydrating manuka honey, and revolutionary Vinanza® antioxidants from New Zealand-grown superfruit. These all feature in Antipodes’ high-performance anti-ageing and skin-brightening formulations.
“Watsons has a long-standing reputation for quality and originality, so this partnership is a great fit for our company, as we pride ourselves on innovation in every area of our business,” says Antipodes® CEO and founder Elizabeth Barbalich.
“We’re thrilled our Hong Kong customers can now lift the lid of one of our products and connect with nature in New Zealand through its ingredients and pure plant fragrances.”
Among the brand’s most prestigious products now available at Watsons is Antipodes’ top-selling Kiwi Seed Oil Eye Cream, which has been scientifically shown to stimulate Type I collagen production in human skin cells in-vitro by up to 82 per cent*.
Also on shelves is beloved certified organic Apostle Skin-Brightening & Tone-Correcting Serum featuring Vinanza® Grape & Kiwi. This revolutionary antioxidant compound from sauvignon blanc grape seeds and kiwifruit skin, extracted using only pure water, has a positive skin-brightening effect by helping to target and reduce pigmentation.
Awareness of the benefits of natural skincare is steadily growing in Hong Kong where Antipodes® already has a presence thanks to the likes of key opinion leader Gobby Hong.
Gobby met the Antipodes' team in May 2015 and quickly became a devotee of the New Zealand brand, sharing images and reviews across her social networks.
