Antipodes Immortal Natural Sun Protection Face & Body Moisturizer (previously Immortal Performance Plus) has been reformulated to ensure even application of the cream, without compromising its sun blocking properties.
Immortal Natural Sun Protection Face and Body Moisturizer is a fragrance-free daily moisturizer with a broad-spectrum natural sun protection factor of 15, which defends against sun damage while locking in moisture and boosting healthy cells. Using mineral-based strategies to counter the ageing effects of ultraviolet A & B, Immortal offers an intelligent alternative to synthetic sun protection products.
SPF 15 sunscreen offers up to 93 percent absorption and filtering of Ultraviolet A (UVA) and Ultraviolet B (UVB) sunlight, a fantastic comparison to SPF 30, which offers up to 97 percent.
Perfect for protecting both normal and sensitive skin, Immortal Performance Plus is age defense for skin at its natural best. The super-performance moisturizer is enriched with raspberry oil, a botanical extract naturally blessed with broad-spectrum sun protection to offer immortal, abidingly beautiful skin to women of all ages.
The moisturizer is designed to keep skin moist and firm with the powerful plant-based hyaluronic acid to prevent trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL). Antioxidant-packed Vivanza grape and kiwi extract decreases facial flushing and the melanin production that causes freckling and pigmentation, while the ancient Reishi mushroom of immortality fosters healthy cell growth.
Along with raspberry oil, Antipodes uses a natural sun filter called Soloveil which is zinc dispersed in capric/caprylic acid, a derivative of coconut oil. This is an inorganic ultraviolet absorber, best when used with a naturally derived dispersing agent such as in the Antipodes formulation. The zinc oxide component of Immortal Performance Plus physically blocks ultraviolet radiation (UVR).
Vivanza Gold - Vitis vinifera
Introducing a revolution in skincare: Vinanza Gold.
From a clever adaptation of nature, this mighty new extract from the seeds of New Zealand’s award-winning boutique sauvignon blanc grapes is natural anti-ageing at its finest.
Aotearoa New Zealand’s intense light penetrates our clear skies, meaning our grape vines work overtime to produce antioxidants - their natural defense mechanism against the extraordinarily high UV levels.
Seeds from our Marlborough region’s premium grapes contain up to double the levels of polyphenolic antioxidant compounds compared to grape seeds grown anywhere else in the world.

Reishi has been highly prized as an elixir of immortality in traditional Chinese medicine for more than 4,000 years. Its many health benefits include fostering healthy cell growth and imbuing your skin with a fresh, healthy appearance. These remarkable mushrooms grow wild on old, broad leaf trees in remote forests and can often reach a weight of over one pound.
Reishi contains several active constituents that include sterols, coumarin, mannitol, polysaccharides and ganoderic acids.

Natural SPF refers to the use of inorganic ultraviolet absorbers like titanium dioxide and zinc oxide. Such mineral-based sun filters usually have a maximum SPF rating of 15, and are considered more natural, milder and safer to use than synthetic alternatives – especially on sensitive skin.
A number of natural beauty brands rely on synthetic chemical absorbers called organic ultraviolet absorbers, marketed as “organic filters”. However, these often petrochemical-based sunscreens are not natural and potentially irritating.
