I can't post the url but maybe you can google it. Apparently they are made in New Zealand.

Looks interesting. They have a nice article which I cannot tell if it is a bunch of hype. I tend to be a sucker for believing things like that but not buying!

Hi there I have used Xtendlife it is very good and I have noticed my skin has improved, my skin is sensitive and gets very red and blotcy, it removes all this. I moved over from Clarins to start using this product and I have noticed Xtendlife does more than what Clarins ever did.

I've run across this too, but as with all of these skin care products promising younger skin, you never know what and what isn't a scam.

These Xtend-Life products allegedly use two "special" ingredients which, if the claims are really true, would logically lead to skin qualities of younger skin.

These two ingredients are:

1. Phytessence Wakame - This is a type of seaweed. They say it is a hyaluronidase inhibitor. The following is a quote from the ezinearticles website: "Hyaluronidase is an enzyme that breaks down hyaluronic acid in our skin. And hyaluronic acid is very important to our skin. The effect of hyaluronic acid, when combined with elastin and collagen, is to maintain the smoothness and elasticity of your skin right into old age. It keeps your skin toned and looking youthful. It makes sure that your skin not only looks youthful, but is healthy too." True or not, I have no idea. It'd be nice if there were some actual clinical trials with real data to reference...

2. Cynergy TK - This stuff allegedly stimulates regrowth of both elastin and collagen. They claim there was a clinical trial on this one in which elasticity increased by 42% in 18 days. I don't know exactly what this means in terms of improved skin appearance, and they show no before and after facial photos. Furthermore, the clinical trial info is second hand, as I haven't been able to find the source data on any website.

In a nutshell, I can't determine if this stuff is for real or not.

If the claims of the ingredients hold true, then I can definitely see the logic in having an improved rate of production of collagen, elastin, and HA (hyaluronic acid) lead to younger looking skin (assuming these are truly the major components of skin appearance).

Again, I don't know if this stuff is for real or just another scam to take our money. It'd be nice to see some before and after photos, so if anyone wants to try products with these ingredients, please share with us the detailed results.

I have been using xtend life for 3 months now and the skincare is outstanding. This is a very reputable New Zealand company who have outstanding customer service. I use the complete range of supplements and skincare. I highly recommend the hydrating mask and eye cream. Any queries medical or cosmetic have always been replied within 24 hours and shipping is very fast.

Diorshow i have to say i looked at there websight a little while ago for myself and was impressed but what put me off is that they dont give you a full list of the ingrendients before you buy something from them! I always think if a company has a small list of mostly has active ingrendients then buy the product, but if the list is too big with too many ingrendients in it then i dont buy the product!

That is just my opinon though! May be emailing a company before you buy there stuff is good idea though!

I came across the same website, and was wondering myself about these products. They seem to have some promising ingredients (at least that is what they advertise). I wanted to try them but was hesitant, so I may give them a try. I may wait a bit more before I order though, maybe see if I could get some more info on them.

The sea weed extracts have much the same function that matrixyl in Strivectin has, sea weed in Creme de la Mer and peptides of different sources have in numerous creams and serums. The combination of hyaluronic acid and peptides have become very basic in skin care. The hyaluronic protecting enzyme-inhibitor places its' self in line with all the anti-oxidants, vitamins and phyto-chemicals that in some way has proven themselfs against the attack of free radicals and other destructive forces that threathens our youthful looks. I do belive in the combination of CoQ10, lopoic acids,oils and anti-oxidants. Sound like a promising recipe.

Before I tried xtend life I used dior, le mer, clarins, lancome and was concerned about the price and the chemicals in them. My skin has cleared alot and my wrinkles have substantially reduced since using xtend life for a relatively short time (I am 42).
I am sure if you emailed them, they would be happy to send a complete list of what is in the products.
I also believe that it is what you put into your body that will reflect in your skin, which is why I use their supplements as well but thats a whole new story of improvements.
I dont work or know any xtend life personnel, I am based in Australia, they are in NZ and I discovered them after a web search and made my decision after emailing them several times.

I'm sorry - but it is not right to have the customers chasing after the company for information like this. That is simply just bad business. There are just too many other options out there these days for consumers to put up with this type of irresponsibility.

Here's a post from another site that I found interesting:


I clicked on "clinical studies" and found this statement from the company:


"Virtually no manufacturer conducts clinical studies on their finished products. This is because of the cost which can run into millions of dollars and unlike a synthetic pharmaceutical product which can enjoy patent protection there is no such protection with natural products."


This is untrue. Cosmetic companies with the biggest research budgets in the world (Loreal, Procter & Gambles Olay, J & Js Neutrogena, Shiseido, Estee Lauder, Kao corp and Beiersdorfs Nivea) all publish both experimental studies on individual molecules and clinical studies on the final formulation.

There´s no way to tell what this cream may do beyond moisturize dry skin. We don´t know if the ingredients penetrate skin, if they do anything or if they´re compatible in this formula. I stay away from products with no studies on the finished product.
