Discover a natural makeup collection like no other
Yes, you'll experience flawless, skin-perfect complexion using the sheerest natural earth mineral powders free from nano-technology, and find moisturising natural lipsticks that gloriously lift any look. But the performance of the Antipodes Scientific Natural Makeup range goes beyond premium natural coverage and colour: this is makeup that actually helps care for your skin.
Its healthy, nutrient-rich and antioxidant ingredients from nature help improve skin health, offer sun protection and replenish moisture in your skin and lips.
The science of our natural makeup
We're pioneering a new niche in beauty worldwide - the scientific validation of high-performance, nature-based ingredients and formulations:
- Performance Plus Mineral Foundations feature revolutionary antioxidant Vinanza Grape & Kiwi, a botanical extract from New Zealand grape seeds and kiwifruit that is scientifically shown to actually improve skin health. An independent study shows that it decreases trans-epidermal water loss to help leave your skin moist and hydrated, and decreases the overproduction of melanin that may result in freckling and pigmentation.
- These foundations have the science to prove their sun protection capability and their gentleness: they carry an SPF rating of 15, and an independent New York laboratory study involving 50 women with sensitive skin resulted in full dermatological approval for sensitive skin.
- Be assured that our entire makeup collection is certified safe for vegetarians by the globally respected Vegetarian Society of the United Kingdom.
Connect with Nature
Our makeup harnesses some of nature's finest ingredients in the Antipodes:
- Jojoba oil in our mineral makeup mean the powders actually moisturise your skin as they cover, providing vital skin hydration while you wear them.
- Earth minerals provide sheer yet rich cover through which your skin can 'breathe'. We avoid heavy synthetic makeup ingredients that can have a caking and mask-like effect, causing clogged pores and break-outs.
- Moisturising avocado pear oil in our lipsticks from nature means that they condition as the colour. Avocado oil increases surface lipids to protect against moisture loss, while the natural humectant lecithin helps moisten lips and provide resistance to environmental damage.
- To ensure smooth application, we use bismuth oxychloride, which is certified by ECOCERT as having 100% natural origin.
