Several of our skincare products are scientifically shown to stimulate the synthesis of collagen production at a cellular level thanks to our unique formulations featuring bioactive native plant extracts.
We engaged an independent laboratory for blind study scientific investigations of Antipodes® products on human fibroblast skin cells*, because we never, ever test our skincare on animals. This third-party laboratory in-vitro analysis is more sophisticated and less subjective testing than that used by other beauty brands.
The results were impressive, showing that synthesis of collagen was significantly stimulated in human fibroblast skin cells by at least 51% and up to 92% (in Avocado Pear Nourishing Night Cream)*.
These results prove what we hear from you time after time that Antipodes® products have superior anti-ageing performance! Collagen is the main protein of connective tissue, and it decreases as we age. Collagen is very significant for anti-ageing as it gives skin a plumped-up, firm and youthful appearance, so these results are impressive proof of Antipodes® anti-ageing ability.
