Antipodes Manuka Honey Skin-Brightening Light Day Cream features bee venom, Vinanza® grape and kiwi seed to restore a light and fresh visage.
Bee venom and mamaku black fern provide a gentle lifting effect. World-famous manuka honey Active 20+ with natural antibacterial properties helps address any skin blemishes. Revolutionary Vinanza® antioxidants from grape seeds and kiwi work with peony flower for the ultimate skin-bright finish.
Hard-working bees living in remote parts of New Zealand collect nectar from one of the world’s most famous sources of healing properties – the manuka tree. Grown in wild locations around New Zealand’s beautiful coastal regions, this tree has learned to survive extreme temperatures and winds, resulting in a plant with impressive health-generating benefits.
High in antibacterial properties, manuka honey has been used for wound healing, digestion and for tinctures. Manuka honey is a powerful ingredient for skin formulations, as its antibacterial nature helps promote youthful, fresh and blemish-free skin.
Bee venom is another unique ingredient with benefits for your skin. The venom is collected via a gentle harvesting process, whereby bees fly free afterwards. At minute concentrations, this bioactive ingredient gives a mild stimulating effect, resulting in a tightening feeling for firmer skin.
Vinanza® Performance Plus, from grape seeds and kiwifruit, is an antioxidant-rich compound with a proven brightening effect. It is scientifically shown to brighten and lighten skin through inhibiting melanin production (which is responsible for age spots and freckles), reduce skin redness and keep skin moist and supple.
Green beauty brand Antipodes® harnesses the healing power of manuka honey in this ultra-moisturising skincare essential.
