Age Defense Active Day CreamIn stock
Nourish & reduce the visible signs of aging
- Reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
- Supporting collagen and elastin
- Supporting hyaluronic acid for smooth skin
Our women's Day Cream and the other products in our women's skin care range contains special active ingredients chosen specifically to target aging skin:
- Loss of collagen and elastin
- Lower levels of hyaluronic acid
- Oxidation through the action of free radicals
What we've done with all our whole natural skin care range is ensure that we have addressed these issues that target aging skin.
1. For stimulating collagen and elastin regrowth
We used Xtend-TK, which is a very new breakthrough in skin care - not yet available in brand-name products. It supports the stimulation and regrowth of collagen, elastin and new skin cells. As your collagen and elastin levels increase your skin will regain a youthful glow.
2. Boosting hyaluronic acid
This special ingredient is called phytessence wakame, and is an extract from a specific type of sea kelp. It inhibits a harmful enzyme (hyaluronidase) which breaks down hyaluronic acid in your skin. Thus it supports increased levels of hyaluronic acid to those amounts normally found in a much younger people.
3. Destroying free radicals
We use a number of potent anti-oxidants but one of the best is Nano-Lipobelle H EQ10. This is CoEnzyme Q10 in a special 'nano-emulsion' form, which can penetrate down through seven layers of skin. It is extremely effective at 'gobbling up' free radicals in your skin, supporting a smooth finish.
Most skincare products tackle only one, or at the most two of these three key reasons. But we've targeted all three using the most powerful natural ingredients known to science.
Working in synergy to support young skin!
All these ingredients work together in synergy, so their combined effect is much greater than the sum of their individual benefits.
Furthermore, the amount of each active ingredient is substantially higher than in most other skin care products, which makes it truly effective for women.
Our Women's Age-Defense Active Day Cream will penetrate deeply into your skin, to nourish it with natural goodness and rejuvenate the health of your skin.
This product is suitable for all skin types and climates.
Important Note ...
Some people think they can reverse the loss of collagen and hyaluronic acid in their skin by using collagen or hyaluronic acid, either orally in a supplement, or topically in a skincare product. But simply rubbing these substances on to your skin, or ingesting them, does not replace deficiencies in the skin. You must stop their degradation, which is a complex biological function.
As well as these key ingredients that make our Women's Day Cream so advanced, it also contains other ingredients that are also essential in producing a quality product. For a complete list of all the ingredients that are used in our women's skincare range with both their INCI and common names please click here.
Xtend-TK truly is the closest thing to a miracle ingredient in reversing the aging process of the skin. It contains bio-active keratin, which is similar to the basic protein found in human skin. This means it is powerfully effective in rejuvenating the skin. In fact, Xtend-TK is almost like applying a 'liquid skin' to your face and body, in a unique bio-available form which stimulates the growth of new skin cells. Furthermore, it is a wonderful moisturizer, which penetrates deeply into the skin, and also forms an invisible barrier to retain moisture.
Nano-Lipobelle H EQ10 is a special 'nano-emulsion' form of CoenzymeQ10, which penetrates deeply into your skin. It has been shown in scientific studies to produce quite a dramatic anti-wrinkle effect. This is due to its ability to increase collagen and elastin production in the skin.
Phytessence Wakame is an extract from sea kelp. It attacks a harmful enzyme (hyaluronidase) which breaks down hyaluronic acid in your skin. Thus your levels of hyaluronic acid will gradually increase to the amounts normally found in a much younger person!
Natural vitamin E (Alpha-tocopherol) is a powerful antioxidant, which has been shown in many scientific studies to reverse the effects of aging on the skin. It reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and also helps prevent the appearance of age spots.
Maracuja is a special passion fruit extract, unique to Brazil. It is a natural emollient, which is very similar to the structure of human skin. Maracuja is rich in linolenic acid, an essential fatty acid, which helps to nourish and revitalize your skin and give it a soft, velvet like feel. It also helps to regulate the production of sebum, to prevent your skin becoming too oily or dry.
Babassu is a light, natural wax, which softens and soothes your skin (giving it a nice velvet like feel) and creates an invisible barrier to retain moisture and keep out dirt and grime. It is made from Babassu oil, from the kernel of the fruit of the Babassu palm, which grows in the Amazon region of Brazil and has been used for centuries to soothe the skin. Babassu oil is beneficial for both dry and oily complexions. It gently moisturizes the skin without making it oily. It has proven benefits for eczema, itchy, dry and inflamed skin.
Grapeseed Oil is a powerful antioxidant and also creates an invisible film on your skin, to keep moisture in. It is especially effective for repairing the skin around the eyes and has also been shown to reduce stretch marks on the skin. Grapeseed oil is rich in linoleic acid and several other essential oils which are necessary for skin health, and it also contains natural vitamin E.
Crodamol OP is a light emollient which softens and soothes your skin, without blocking your pores, and also makes your skin more supple.
The following Q & A's apply to all skin care products and for your convenience are repeated in the FAQ section for each, even though some questions may apply to a different product than the one you are currently viewing. If you have a question which is not covered here please contact us by email or telephone, or via 'Liveperson' online help.
If your skincare products are so good, why aren't they more expensive?
Many people think, the more you pay for a product, the better it must be. Well, of course, there's an element of truth in this. But when you look at the skincare market, there are some outrageous prices being charged for some very mediocre products. Even the top brand names are often not what you think they are.
We've chosen a totally different way of pricing our products than most other leading skincare companies which gives you a far superior product for as little as 1/3rd the price of top brands. There is an explanation as to why we can do this.
Why don't you include an SPF factor in your skincare products?
It would be easy and inexpensive for us to add an SPF factor to our products, like many companies do. But from a philosophical viewpoint we won't do it, because of the possible health risks.
This might seem controversial, considering everything you've been told about the importance of protecting your skin from the sun. But we've done extensive research into this issue, and we have a valid reason for not including an SPF factor which you should know about.
Does 'all skin types' mean, Normal, Dry, Oily, Combination, Acne-Prone skin etc?
Yes, all of our products have been developed to cater for all skin types and all climates. This is possible because of the absence of mineral oils and other substances that would normally cause a problem on some skin types and/or block the pores.
Are there any ingredients that could cause sensitive skin to irritate more?
We have been very careful to ensure that we do not have any ingredients that are likely to irritate the skin, and we have included special nutrients that calm and soothe the skin. However, it is always possible for some people to experience some irritation if they are sensitive to certain ingredients.
Why do you not use any fragrances?
Almost all fragrances in skin care products are synthetic chemicals and many of them can create allergies or irritation. To use a 'natural' fragrance would require larger quantities and then in turn that fragrance would require additional preservative to prevent it from becoming rancid.
Does the Xtend-Life range of skincare products have an odor?
The Xtend-Life skincare products are almost odorless. There is a faint, refreshing 'natural' smell from the extracts included, but because it penetrates into the skin rapidly it quickly becomes undetectable.
Will the Day Cream with Natural Whitening reduce the appearance of freckles and age spots?
You may notice there benefits, however the extent of the benefits does vary for each individual.
Are the products Non-Comedogenic?
Can these products help with Rosacea?
Yes, a number of the ingredients can help your skin manage inflammation and help reduce the redness associated with Rosacea. Have a look at the information on Xtend-TK in the ingredient section for more information.
Is it OK to apply your products on broken or irritated skin?
Yes, it is ok to use these products and they may help the health of the skin. If there is further irritation, please discontinue use in the affected area.
When could I expect to see benefits from using these products?
This will vary from person to person, and will depend greatly on the current condition of your skin. For example, the poorer condition your skin is in the quicker you are likely to see benefits. If your skin is in good condition the results will take longer to become obvious and they will be more subtle. For example, some people will notice a difference in the feel of their skin in just days but for others it may take some weeks. We would hope that in most cases that after a couple of months you may start getting complements about the appearance of your skin.
I currently use a very expensive placenta serum which contains Keratin. Would your product be as good?
We expect that our products will work better for you! The reason for this is that the Keratin from Xtend-TK is more active and absorbs into your skin cells more effectively. Xtend-TK has successfully extracted the Keratin in a stable bio-active form. Refer to the info on Xtend-TK for more information about this ingredient.
Why do I need a separate eye serum? Can't I use the day cream or facial fluid?
This is because the area around the eyes has very thin membranes and some of the nutrients that are used in the face and body creams are designed to go deep into the skin. This is something that is not desirable around your eyes as they may become irritated. This is why we use some very special ingredients in the eye gel such as Eyeliss so you can get maximum benefits without irritating your your eyes.
All the way from New Zealand but worth the wait. Non greasy and moisturizing. Hopefully they will soon sell in the U.S.
Xtend-Life Active Day Cream
My reasons for choosing this product are the same as for the Night Cream and Eye Serum. I like this product because it suits my requirements, is quickly absorbed and is non greasy and it leaves my skin feeling soft and as firm as it can be at my age. I use it in conjunction with the Restorative Night Cream and the Eye Contour Serum.
The Xtend-Life website contains useful information.
Excellent cream -- great quality, feels great on skin
Excellent face cream for day use. Light enough for summer, but also works great in cold, dry Colorado winters. I've tried other all natural creams (which is all I can use these days -- no chemicals at all for my skin), and something just was never quite right. This one is perfect for me.
Fantastic Day Cream
This day cream is great. Makes the skin very soft. Not greasy at all. I have very sensitive skin, especially with products that have fragrance, and this cream is wonderful.
This feels good when you FIRST put it on but as you rub it in, it begins to clump and look like wax or dead skin on your face. Very disappointed.
Customer Reviews (from Amazon)
Do not care for it-not happy...
I've used Xtend Life body lotion for years on my face & body and loved it. I don't like this cream, it leaves my face greasy and makes it hard to put eyeliner on. Unfortunately, the body lotion has doubled in price since my last purchase, which is why I thought I'd try this.
- After cleansing and drying your face and neck, apply Women's Day Cream evenly over the area.
- Gently massage the cream into your skin, using an upward and outward motion.
- Leave 5 to 10 minutes before applying make-up. This allows sufficient time for the active ingredients to penetrate into your skin.
Your Age Defense Day Cream is the best on the market. Remarkable product! I have tried everything and at a great expense, but this exceeds them all. So thank you!!
-Kathy A, USA
The specific thing I have noticed about the Age Defense Active Day Cream is my skin has a healthier, more youthful glow when I use it under my mineral make up. Now I have a full compliment of your products and can really go to town on my skin. Thank You.

So we all know that really excessive exposure to the sun and its UV rays causes premature skin aging; but what about overexposure to sugar? Did you know that excess sugar causes just as much damage, if not more?
Now, I know for a fact that sugar scrubs make my skin look beautiful and glowing - I make myself a new batch every couple of weeks. But what I am talking about here is the consumption of too much sugar.
