Set a New Year’s resolution you can stick to in 2018 and give yourself the gift of radiant skin. Say goodbye to chemical-laden skincare products and say hello to effective, natural skincare.
Xtend-Life’s skincare range is scientifically proven to reduce wrinkles and other visible signs of aging, without harsh chemicals or additives.
The secret lies in our Kanapa™ blend – a unique formulation of natural antioxidants and rare New Zealand herbs, plus oils and aloe vera to moisturize, soothe, defy aging and support the skin from oxidative stress. Daily use of Kanapa™ skincare delivers superior radiance while providing breakthrough anti-aging results for nourished, younger looking skin. Kanapa™ is exclusive to Xtend-Life skincare products.
Powerful anti-aging benefits from natural botanicals
Xtend-Life’s unique Kanapa™ blend consists of seven powerful natural ingredients, which work together to deliver effective anti-aging benefits:
Moringa oil is a lightweight, nutrient-dense oil obtained by pressing the seeds of the Moringa oleifera tree (also known as the Tree of Life.) The seeds are made up of 40 percent oil, which was used by the ancient Egyptians as a beauty treatment and moisturizer.
A powerful antioxidant, Moringa helps fight free radical damage and prevent the visible signs of aging. Penetrating deep beneath the skin’s surface, Moringa encourages the regeneration of collagen and elastin to reveal firmer, more radiant skin.
This natural form of vitamin E is a potent antioxidant that helps resist the breakdown of collagen and elastin, the two proteins that keep skin taut, supple and help resist the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamin E is able to penetrate not only the epidermis, or surface layer of skin, but also the dermis, or structural layer of skin, where it can do the most good.
An antioxidant derived from vegetable oil, phytaminol supports healthy skin cells, preserves moisture and prevents inflammation. It not only fights free radical damage, but helps maintain circulation to the skin, bringing essential nutrients to the surface where they can do the most good. Phytaminol is most effective when combined with Copherol and Astaxanthin. Together, this trio helps support the healthy function of collagen and elastin, maintain circulation and protect against free radical damage.
This natural antioxidant derived from algae works synergistically with Copherol and phytaminol to protect skin from free radical damage and prevent premature aging.
Astaxanthin delivers a multitude of skin-loving benefits, including the ability to help manage the sun’s UV rays. High in vitamin A, one of the most skin-friendly antioxidants, Astaxanthin supports the production of collagen and elastin. When collagen and elastin levels rise skin appears firmer and more elastic with a radiant glow.
Harakeke is the Maori name for New Zealand flax and is one of nature’s super skin hydrators. It is very high in linoleic acid which boosts the skin’s barrier layer, helping to seal in natural moisture. Harakeke also contains valuable oleic acid and phytosterols which help promote healthy cell turnover.
Harakeke works by balancing the skin’s natural oils and reducing inflammation, enabling damaged skin to recover. Packed with antioxidants, Harakeke fights free radical damage, preventing the appearance of dark spots, fine lines and wrinkles.
This unique plant extract from the aloe vera plant rehydrates the skin after exposure to sun and other harsh elements. It is also a skin-conditioning agent that supports skin health and relieves skin irritation. Aloe vera penetrates deep beneath the skin’s surface, where it acts as a botanical detox. By strengthening skin’s barrier layer, it helps lock in essential moisture and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Mamaku is a Native New Zealand tree fern that produces a unique healing extract used by Maori for centuries to soothe and rejuvenate skin cells. Mamaku’s hydrating properties leave skin feeling smoother, softer and more radiant.
Lipolami™ milk thistle
Lipolami™ is a lightweight moisturizer extracted from milk thistle, a nutrient-dense herb which has been used medicinally for over 2,000 years. Lipolami Milk Thistle is rich in silymarin, an antioxidant that can help slow the aging process and turn back the clock by fighting free radicals that attack skin cells, resulting in fine lines, wrinkles and dark spots.
Silymarin also supports the skin’s ability to manage photo-aging, which appears as dark spots and sagging skin - the result of excessive exposure to UV rays. Milk thistle is comprised of almost exclusively of fatty acids, which deliver lightweight but effective hydration, plumping skin cells and making skin appear more radiant.
Concerned about chemicals?
Xtend-Life’s skincare range contains no parabens, BPA, petroleum-based ingredients or mineral oils, so you can rest assured your skin isn’t absorbing any baddies. All Xtend-Life products are dermatologically tested by Dermatest Germany and are cruelty free (recognised by PETA).
Proven anti-aging benefits
To test the efficacy of our Kanapa™ formulations, Comvita Innovation conducted a trial through the University of Auckland. The study investigated the restorative anti-aging effects of Xtend-Life’s Eye Contour Cream, Women’s Sheer Day and Night Cream and Men’s Age Defying Facial Fluid, evaluating the anti-wrinkle effects after continuous daily use of the products for six weeks.

- 11% reduction in wrinkle length
- 14% maximum reduction in wrinkle depth
- 20% reduction in wrinkle volume
- 35% decrease in wrinkle count.
