Description

Description

Antipodes is an organic skincare and makeup company like no other. The company’s founder, Elizabeth Barbalich, has a solid and extensive career in science, but has used her scientific knowledge as the bedrock for creating and testing innovative skincare products made from only the most natural of ingredients together with raw super-fruit extracts.

One of those key ingredients that is unique to New Zealand is Manuka Honey, which is one of the most important ingredients in this Manuka Honey Skin-Brightening Light Day Cream.

But why Manuka Honey specifically? The list of Manuka honey’s benefits in general, not just for the skin, are long as, for example, Manuka honey contains vitamins and minerals as well as antioxidants.

But in addition to being packed full of beneficial nutrients for the skin, Manuka honey has a genuinely unique antibacterial activity thanks to the presence of a naturally occurring compound called methylglyoxal (or MGO). This antibacterial characteristic is also unusually high compared to other types of honey.

The concentration of MGO can vary, which is why authentic Manuka honey must be tested to verify its level and purity. There is a link between the level of MGO and its antibacterial properties, although Manuka honey has other natural compounds that are also thought to be involved in this process.

Antipodes has had a well-established relationship with Watson & Son to supply its Manuka honey for use in Antipodes skincare products. Based in the North Island of New Zealand, Watson & Son supplies monofloral Manuka honey that is tested in its own accredited laboratory.

Antipodes Manuka Honey Skin-Brightening Light Day Cream can be applied to the face and the neck both in the morning and the evening.

The Manuka honey helps reduce blemishes and acts as a natural moisturizer while the cream also contains a whole host of other antioxidants and raw ingredients that are great for the skin to restore a light and fresh look to the skin.
