The good oil on Antipodes

Highly concentrated oil extracted from seeds such as flax, chia and kiwi delivers a powerful boost to skin at the cellular level. Extracting the oil from these delicate, tiny seeds can be difficult but the most sustainable method of extracting seed oil is by cold-pressing the seeds.

By using temperatures below 40 degrees, the oil is extracted without damaging the seeds. This helps to retain more of their healthy skin-enhancing properties.

The premium, concentrated kiwi seed oil and meadowfoam oil used in our natural cleansers, toners, moisturisers and serums are powerful when it comes to skin regeneration, moisture-boosting, and helping the appearance of skin to look younger and healthier.

These are some of our most nourishing pure plant oils:


Kiwi seed oil

Kiwi seed oil is particularly good for the skin because of its high concentration of Omega 3, an essential fatty acid our body is unable to produce. This high concentration of Omega 3 helps to fight free radicals that can affect the thickness, elasticity and suppleness of skin. Because kiwifruit has more Vitamin C than oranges, kiwi seed oil not only firms the skin it also helps to repair it. Kiwi seed oil is used in our popular Chia & Kiwi Seed Superfood Serum, the nourishing Kiwi Seed Oil Lip Conditioner and Kiwi Seed Oil Eye Cream, as well Namaste Hand & Body Wash and Nirvana Hand & Body Wash.


Meadowfoam seed oil

Meadowfoam seed oil is extracted from the seeds of the delicate white and yellow flowers of the meadowfoam plant. This nourishing oil has amazing antioxidant properties, forming a natural barrier to lock in moisture. It also helps to reduce the appearance of lines, scars and rough areas. Meadowfoam seed oil is used in our Jubilation Nourishing Hand & Body Cream and Saviour Skin Balm. 


Raspberry seed oil

Raspberry seed oil is another potent antioxidant, loaded with Vitamins A and E which reduces skin damage and mops up free radicals that contribute to ageing skin. Raspberry skin oil, which is used in our Ananda Antioxidant-Rich Gentle Toner, also provides essential Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. And it’s packed with Vitamin A to stimulate cell repair and prevents sun damage.


Carrot seed oil

Carrot seed oil is also high in antioxidants, helping protect skin against ageing, replace moisture due to evaporation, and provide protection from the sun. Our Hallelujah Lime & Patchouli Cleanser and Kiwi Seed Oil Eye Cream contain powerful carrot seed oil.
