THE SCIENCE OF SKIN

What is collagen, and how does it support ageing skin?

Think of collagen like the building blocks of skin – the glue holding everything together. Collagen is the most abundant protein in your body and the major component of connective tissues that form a range of body parts, including tendons, ligaments, muscles, and your body’s largest organ, the skin.

There are a number of different types of collagen, but Type I is the most plentiful, making up over 90% of collagen in the human body.

Collagen has many important functions, including providing your skin with structure and giving it strength and elasticity. When we’re young, collagen is in plentiful supply, which is why our skin is beautifully bouncy. As we age, collagen levels deplete, leading to the gradual breakdown of the skin. AS a result, it becomes less firm and supple, and wrinkles begin to form. An anti ageing cream can help support healthy collagen levels and keep skin looking its healthy best.

Our scientific testing

Our in-vitro scientific investigations look at the effect of human skin cells when exposed to product end formulations. We test our anti ageing creams and other anti-ageing products on human skin fibroblast cells – the most common cell that creates Type I collagen, dispersed in connective tissue throughout the body.

High-tech anti-ageing compounds

Lime Caviar image

Lime Caviar

NATURAL SOURCE OF AHAS

• Cell renewal
• Collagen support
• Brightening

Lime caviar is a rich natural source of beneficial AHAs, which encourage cell renewal to foster a smoother, more radiant, even-toned complexion. AHAs help to promote collagen production by destroying old collagen fibres to make way for new ones and encourage blood flow to the skin for a healthy glow. 


Sepilift™ DPHP

Sepilift™ DPHP

WRINKLE-SMOOTHING ACTIVE

• Smooths fine lines
• Collagen support
• Moisturising

Sepilift™ DPHP is a concentrated active ingredient that helps to stimulate collagen and improve skin moisturisation, correcting deep wrinkles and signs of dehydration. It is an oil-soluble derivative of hydroxyproline, the primary amino acid in collagen, and plays a key role in collagen production and stability.

Melanostatine™ 5 peptides

Melanostatine™ 5 peptides

TARGETS AND CORRECTS HYPER-PIGMENTATION

• Reduces pigmentation
• Corrects uneven skin tone
• Brightens dull skin

Peptides are short chains of amino acids: building blocks of proteins that are crucial to the function and appearance of skin. By inhibiting the synthesis of melanin, the peptide helps to diminish pigmentation caused by ageing, and cultivate a brighter skin tone.


Kakadu plum

Kakadu plum

NATURE'S RICHEST SOURCE OF VITAMIN C

• Protects
• Brightens
• Collagen support

With up to 100 times the vitamin C of oranges, this powerful Australian superfruit is used in our anti-ageing creams and serums to target the effects of pigmentation. The result? Healthier, younger looking skin.

Our scientific testing

At Antipodes, we have a unique difference: our focus on in-vitro scientific investigations, which are designed to help elevate our product textures, hydration levels, and – critically – the potential to optimise the skin’s appearance.

Our in-vitro scientific investigations look at the effect of human skin cells when exposed to product end formulations. This method shows how skin cells stimulate or synthesise collagen over and above natural collagen levels. We test our anti ageing creams and other anti-ageing products on human skin fibroblast cells – the most common cell that creates Type I collagen, dispersed in connective tissue throughout the body.

High-tech natural compounds

With the ability to achieve powerful skin benefits that surpass their synthetic counterparts, we search the world for antioxidant-rich superfruits and flora that deliver results.

Lime Caviar

Natural source of AHAs

Lime caviar is a rich natural source of beneficial AHAs, which encourage cell renewal to foster a smoother, more radiant, even-toned complexion. AHAs help to promote collagen production by destroying old collagen fibres to make way for new ones and encourage blood flow to the skin for a healthy glow.

Lime caviar is the pulp of the finger lime, an Australian superfruit, which is sustainably harvested on Australia’s sub-tropical east coast – handpicked by local communities to ensure the preservation of the precious natural resource.

Sepilift™ DPHP

Wrinkle-smoothing active

Sepilift™ DPHP is a concentrated active ingredient that helps to stimulate collagen and improve skin moisturisation, correcting deep wrinkles and signs of dehydration. It is an oil-soluble derivative of hydroxyproline, the primary amino acid in collagen, and plays a key role in collagen production and stability.

The ingredient works as a ‘signal’ to the uppermost layers of skin to repair its supportive elements, leading to fewer visible lines and wrinkles. As well as supporting collagen, this high-tech peptide compound also helps to offset enzymes that degrade collagen and lead to sagging, wrinkled skin.

Melanostatine™ 5 peptides

Reversing hyper-pigmentation

Peptides are short chains of amino acids – the building blocks of proteins that are crucial to the function and appearance of skin.

We utilise a stable, biomimetic peptide derived from α-MSH – a natural substance in the body which produces melatonin, responsible for pigmentation in skin. The peptide acts as a melatonin inhibitor, blocking the synthesis of melanin. By powerfully inhibiting the synthesis of melanin, the peptide helps to correct uneven skin tone, brighten skin, and promotes a luminous complexion.

Kakadu plum

Nature’s richest source of Vitamin C

With up to 100 times the Vitamin C of oranges, this powerful Australian superfruit helps brighten, plump, and protect skin thanks to its exceptional antioxidant-rich properties. Native to Australia, Kakadu plum is sustainably sourced from the country’s tropical northern regions by indigenous communities. Its potency is the result of extremely high exposure to harmful sun rays, which cause the fruit to develop a self-defence system composed of powerful antioxidant molecules to protect itself from sun-induced free radical attacks.

Thanks to this unique environmental response, Kakadu plum boasts the world's highest recorded natural amount of Vitamin C - up to 100 times the Vitamin C of oranges! For plumped, healthy skin, Vitamin C is a must-have. As a potent antioxidant, Vitamin C combats free radical damage, helping to address pigmentation and brighten skin.

Cacay oil

NATURAL BIO-RETINOL

• Softens signs of ageing
• Boosts collagen
• Firms & smooths

Touted as a ‘miracle oil’, cacay oil is a non-irritating, natural source of vitamin A (AKA a bio-retinol), which stimulates cell renewal to help smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Abundant in vitamin E, the anti-ageing ingredient improves skin laxity and offers protection from environmental aggressors.

Bakuchiol

Bakuchiol

A NATURAL VITAMIN A ALTERNATIVE

PERSEA GRATISSIMA

• Nutrient-rich
• Collagen support
• Conditioning

A powerful conditioning agent, this lush green oil helps to hydrate the skin thanks to high levels of natural antioxidants, including vitamins A, B1, B2 and D, as well as omegas 3 and 9. Avocado oil’s secret ingredient is sterolin, a natural steroid that triggers the production of collagen – essential in helping to prevent and soften the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

Kiwi seed oil

ACTINIDIA CHINENSIS

• Vitamin C-rich
• Hydration
• Antioxidant protection

Rich in vitamin C and intensively hydrating for skin, kiwi seed oil is pressed from the seeds of the superfruit kiwi – New Zealand’s national fruit. Kiwi seed oil is high in Omega 3 as well as vitamins C and E, which may help to improve skin elasticity and reduce fine lines.

The science of natural ingredients

Where to go when seeking the world’s purest, most nutrient-rich ingredients? Head to the cleanest environment on Earth. New Zealand nature provides us with the inspiration behind our globally awarded origin formulations; packed with bioactives and botanicals that are enriched with nourishing oils, antioxidants, and powerful compounds. Sustainably sourced from New Zealand’s forests, orchards, vineyards, and coastal terrain, and extracted to preserve their maximum nutrient density, we use only those ingredients that carry robust skin-enhancing benefits.

Cacay oil

Natural bio-retinol

ATouted as a ‘miracle oil’, cacay oil is a non-irritating, natural source of vitamin A (AKA a bio-retinol), which stimulates cell renewal to help smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Abundant in vitamin E, the anti-ageing ingredient improves skin laxity and offers protection from environmental aggressors.  

Derived from the nut of the cacay tree, the oil is a rich source of linoleic acid, to improve the skin tone as it intensely moisturises, to foster softer, healthier-looking skin.

Bakuchiol

Natural retinol alternative

An ancient herb known as “Nature’s retinol”. With roots in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine, bakuchiol is a natural extract sourced from the seeds and levels of the babchi plant which is native to the Indian subcontinent. This brightening skin care ingredient boasts antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties which help to smooth and refine skin texture, protect skin from harmful free radical damage, and correct uneven skin tone.

Bakuchiol is a true gift from nature – because while it has been shown to produce the same benefits as retinol, it carries none of the irritating side effects.

Avocado oil

Persea gratissima

Our key foundation ingredient, avocado oil is not only effective as a binder that holds a formulation together, it is also nourishing in its own right. A powerful conditioning agent, this lush green oil helps to hydrate the skin thanks to potent levels of natural antioxidants, including Vitamins A, B1, B2 and D, as well as Omegas 3 and 9. Avocado oil floods the skin with moisture, helping to moisturise the skin and enhance its natural lipid barrier, keeping skin beautifully dewy and supple.

Avocado oil’s secret ingredient is sterolin, a natural steroid that triggers the production of collagen – essential in helping to prevent and soften the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Thanks to high levels of plant compounds called phytosterols, avocado oil has a role to play in rejuvenating weary and stressed skin, and in helping to reduce inflammation.

Kiwi seed oil

Actinidia chinensis

Rich in vitamin C and intensively hydrating for skin, kiwi seed oil is pressed from the seeds of the superfruit kiwi – New Zealand’s national fruit. Kiwi seed oil is high in Omega 3 as well as vitamins C and E, which may help to improve skin elasticity and reduce fine lines. A rich source of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), this ultra-nourishing oil can dramatically help to maintain moisture in the skin.

We source our kiwi seed oil from fruit grown in sustainable orchards around New Zealand. Raised in fertile soil and bathed in warm sunshine, the oil is extracted from the seeds of kiwifruit grown to make fruit juice – so no part of the fruit goes to waste.

Manuka honey

Antibacterial, anti-inflammatory & antioxidant

Nature’s sweetest superfood, manuka honey is unique to New Zealand and contains a host of skin-enhancing properties, including anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antibacterial benefits. The key for our hydrating skincare? Manuka honey’s impressive humectant profile.

Manuka honey assists with drawing moisture into the skin, delivering a fresh, clear, and youthful-looking visage whilst tending to blemishes and redness.
