Can I apply the Restorative Night Cream to my body if my skin is very dry?
There is no reason why you cannot apply the Restorative Night Cream to small areas of your body, where the skin is exceptionally dry. However, applying the cream to large areas of the body is simply not very economical. We recommend using our Age Defying Body Lotion to target dry skin on the body, which is specially designed for all over body use. This product is deeply nourishing and absorbs effectively into the skin, please see the individual product page for more information.
Can I use the Eye Contour Cream at the same time as the Night Cream?
Yes it is absolutely fine to use the Eye Contour Cream with the Restorative Night Cream. Just leave a gap of 10 mins between one product and the other before applying, to ensure that one is completely absorbed before the next is applied.
Is the Restorative Night Cream too heavy for my skin if it is prone to acne?
The Restorative Night Cream is suitable for all skin types, including acne prone skin types. It is richly moisturizing but is not clogging to the pores, so it should not make acne worse. Our formula is rich but lightweight, with beneficial properties that can support the skin, without the drying agents that are present in most acne products. While it is not specifically designed to treat acne, it's likely that the synergistic mix of ingredients will result in fewer breakouts over time. Then you can hopefully discontinue any other products containing harsh chemicals that can leave skin feeling parched and flaky.
When beginning this product we suggest applying a small amount for a few nights and monitor how your skin responds. If you have a naturally oily skin you may find you can use a very small amount to provide adequate hydration.
What is your Kanapa™ blend used in your skincare range?
Kanapa is a Maori (native New Zealand) word for 'bright' or 'glow' and we believe our signature blend provides ingredients to allow your skin to do just that. It is a unique blend of eight plant-based ingredients designed to support the skin's natural ability to repair itself, and help you maintain skin with a youthful glow and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Rich in replenishing oils and including omegas 3, 6, 7 & 9, our unique Kanapa™ blend works to replenish, strengthen and protect the skin. This innovative, replenishing blend is your key to age-defying skin.
Do you test your skincare or supplements on animals?
We do not conduct or commission animal testing on raw materials or finished products in any phase of development. We do not test on animals under any circumstances. We are deeply committed to respecting animal life and wellbeing, as well as our environment.
Why don't you include an SPF factor in your skincare products?
We do not include SPF in any of our skincare products for a number of reasons.
Firstly, we believe that skin damage caused by the sun occurs only through over-exposure to the sun rays. General and safe exposure of the skin to the sun is essential for health and can provide useful benefits in some cases, such as for sufferers of acne. The first point of call for sun protection should be avoiding the sun during the hours of 10am and 3pm when it is at its most intense. Sitting in the shade and wearing a hat, sunglasses and long-sleeved clothing is a good idea. Of course, in some instances, it is essential to apply a sun protection lotion to the skin, when over-exposure cannot be avoided. When this is the case we recommend using the most natural options possible such as zinc oxide and titanium oxide-based sunblocks.
There is a range of SPF products available on the market but none of these are completely natural, therefore we have chosen at this time not to include SPF in our skincare. Some current SPF products may be absorbed deeply into the skin and there is not sufficient research to indicate the long term effects that this may produce. Xtend-Life takes great pride in using the most natural, as well as safest ingredients possible so these ingredients are not acceptable to us.
Some other SPF ingredients, such as zinc oxide and titanium oxide, are not able to be absorbed into the skin and create a barrier on the surface. Xtend-Life skincare is designed to be deeply absorbed into the skin to achieve the maximum benefits, a process which would not be possible if we were to add oxide-based sunblocks into our range. These products can also often create a white film upon the skin which is not aesthetically desirable in facial skincare products.
What is the shelf life of your products?
We have a significant number of antioxidants in our skincare, and as we are careful to prevent oxidation of these potent ingredients, we have chosen to package these products in tubes. This prevents excessive exposure of the product to air. Our skin care products have a shelf life of two years from manufacture date and we recommend storing them in a cool dry place.
Does Xtend-Life skincare contain any mineral oils?
None of our products contain mineral oils. Mineral oils can clog the pores, interfere with skin's ability to eliminate toxins, and encourage breakouts. We use nourishing plant-based oils which nourish the skin without aggravating acne.
