Hailing from New Zealand’s Canterbury Plains, Antipodes CEO & Founder Elizabeth Barbalich studied science and business at tertiary level before spending eight years in a sales role for a US surgical corporation that pioneered technology for keyhole surgery.
Raising her children led to an interest in creating a non-toxic household. Elizabeth studied natural health and scoured the world for natural skincare that performed as well as the conventional brands she used. Finding none, she decided to make her own, and founded Antipodes in 2004.
Now sold on four continents, Antipodes’ headquarters are in Wellington.
WHAT MAKES YOU GREEN
At Antipodes, we believe in the power of nature to cultivate healthy skin – and the power of people to cultivate a healthier planet. Our green beauty ethos means using only sustainable ingredients from renewable sources, and working with suppliers who can ensure traceability from farm to face.
Our certified vegan, organic, and vegetarian formulas are 100% cruelty-free and packaged in high-quality recyclable glass, aluminium, and FSC-approved cardboard, printed with biodegradable eco-inks from vegetables. Our inside-out approach to sustainability has saved more than 10 million plastic jars from entering landfill. By the end of 2023, we hope to be 100% plastic-free.
THE ANTIPODES MAGIC
Our new release, Lime Caviar Collagen-Rich Firming Cream, is Antipodes’ most sustainable product to date. The formulation is 100% natural-origin, certified by BioGro Organic, and the brand’s first product to feature 100% plastic-free packaging, thanks to the development of a kerbside-recyclable aluminium lid. Like all our moisturisers, Lime Caviar also comes in a glass jar with an FCS-approved cardboard box.
Initially, the aluminium lid will be available exclusively at AntipodesNature.com. It’s a huge step towards reaching our sustainability goals: 100% plastic free, 100% kerbside recyclable in Australia and New Zealand, and 100% traceable ingredients.
