New Zealand: Her unpolluted beauty
Pure New Zealand nature is a sight to behold. In fact, we believe we live in the most beautiful country on Earth. Located in the South Pacific, New Zealand consists of two main islands - the North Island and the South Island. Stewart Island and many smaller islands lie offshore.
You’ll discover soaring mountains; mysterious lakes and rivers; dramatic volcanic plateaus with thermal hot springs, mud pools and geysers; vast open plains spliced by braided rivers; mighty fiords; rainforests; glaciers; and great stretches of coastline with gloriously sandy beaches.
And with over 30% of New Zealand’s land area dedicated to national parks and other protected areas, her beauty is vastly unspoilt and unpolluted. There are extensive conservation campaigns to rid our land of threats to native wildlife and to support populations of endangered species such as our native birds, including the kiwi. Antipodes® supports the work of World Wide Fund for Nature – New Zealand.
Room to breathe, space to roam
It seems that our skies stretch forever, and with no landmass between Antarctica and New Zealand, the unpolluted air is divinely fresh to breathe.
Beneath these clear skies, the vegetation grows lush. There are vast tracts of native rainforests, and in the hinterland around our cities and towns are patchwork landscapes of orchards and farms thriving on New Zealand's fertile soil. From here we source our skin-enhancing, bioactive ingredients.
Compared to countries the world over, population is low and a feeling of spaciousness pervades.
While we do get our share of wild weather, ours is a temperate climate. We are blessed with relatively mild, wet winters and warm, dry summers. The Far North boasts a subtropical climate, while the southernmost regions can get icy winds and deep snows.
The winemaking region of Marlborough is blessed with high sunshine hours. And this extreme UV activity is responsible for one of the most powerful antioxidants in the Antipodes natural skincare range, that's perfect for addressing signs of anti-aging. Learn more about Vinanza Grape.
