Antipodes Moisture-Boost Natural Forest Berry Red Lipstick is part of a range of healthy lipsticks from New Zealand nature for safe, everyday wear – which will take you far into the night.
There are 12 colours to suit any complexion, any outfit, any occasion. Healthy, edible, natural ingredients make these lipsticks safer to wear. An abundance of nutrient-rich pure plant oils mean these lipsticks moisturise lips deeply. They condition as they colour.
The inspiration for the formulation of these lipsticks is natural health supplements. Over the course of her lifetime, a woman may ingest as much as three kilograms or seven pounds of lipstick into her body. She absorbs it through the skin of her lips, or swallows it when she eats or drinks. So Antipodes formulated these lipsticks with ingredients that are not only safe to consume – but actually healthy! ALL of their lipstick ingredients are from natural origin, with only low levels of FDA-approved colour pigments added for vibrancy.

Calendula Oil: The healing oil from the vibrant marigold flower has anti-inflammatory properties, making it the ideal lipcare ingredient.
Avocado Oil: Packed with essential fats, vitamins and minerals, our ‘Green gold for skin’ helps to increase collagen production and keep your lips dewy and fresh.
The pure plant oils that are the main ingredients in Antipodes healthy lipsticks are some of Nature’s finest superfoods:
Evening Primrose Oil: A pretty yellow flower that opens up after sunset, evening primrose oil is widely revered for its edible properties. The soft green leaves were traditionally used as a vegetable, and the roots are also eaten. Oil extracted from the seeds is rich in healthy essential fats and is used as a powerful natural health supplement.
Argan Oil: High in antioxidants, fatty acids and Vitamin E, oil from the Moroccan argan nut balances oil production and hydrates lips for a soft, moist finish.
Beeswax: This natural waxy substance has antibacterial properties and helps our long-lasting lipsticks retain moisture. Honeybees collect nectar from flowers and bring it to the beehive to make into honey. Bees consume the honey and later secrete some into the hive as beeswax.
Jojoba Oil: This rich hydrating oil is the closest plant oil to your own natural sebum, so it’s quickly absorbed into the skin to leave a silky after-feel. Jojoba oil has been widely used in skincare for centuries for reducing wrinkles, scars and stretchmarks.
Shea Butter: High in Vitamins A and E, this fatty extract derived from the nuts of the shea tree is deeply moisturising.
The full range of Moisture-Boost Natural Lipsticks is certified vegetarian by the UK Vegetarian Society. Also known as VegSoc, it is the oldest and most respected vegetarian organisation in the world.
The only animal by-product Antipodes uses in their lipsticks is beeswax – a sustainable ingredient from lovingly-kept bees.
