Are you shopping for new beauty products? Here’s our roundup of the best natural skincare launches on the market
Natural skincare is big business at the moment, but there’s a difference between natural and organic or natural and vegan. In fact, just because a product claims to be natural doesn’t mean the majority of ingredients aren’t still manufactured. How can you get it right? Well, by shopping from brands known for their high-quality skincare. After all, just because you’re careful with what you put on your skin doesn’t mean you don’t also want big results. Right?
Already a big hit with the ladies of New Zealand, the UK and France, Antipodes Skincare has landed on our shores. Stocked in larger Boots and independent health food shops, Antipodes is an organic skincare range for those who want big results from natural ingredients. If peptides and acids are your thing then this skincare range is for you.
Antipodes is pioneering a skincare niche globally and one of the few fully certified organic skincare producers in the world. They’re working towards organic and natural skincare with the level of scientific validation of anti-ageing performance usually only seen in major conventional brands. And key Antipodes anti-ageing skincare products are returning extremely impressive scientific results.
Independent investigations show that they can significantly help to optimise collagen and elastin production and antioxidant activity in human skin cells.

NEOM Skincare Range
NEOM is a brand that refused to move into skincare before now. Until they could be sure the products would be as good as their body products. The wait was worth it! We were treated to a sneak peak with last year’s face oils and expectation was high. The new cleansing and moisturising products don’t disappoint and are jam-packed with essential oils and high-quality ingredients.
