Our base product provides six active and potent ingredients that work synergistically to optimize your skin's health. Create beautiful skin from within and discover real results by yourself.
Defend: Helps reduce skin susceptibility to UV-induced sunburn**
Hydrate: helps improve skin hydration
Farm: Helps improve skin elasticity and firmness
Protect: Provides antioxidants for skin health
Bend's Anti-Aging formula is the ultimate solution for treating the signs of aging. Thanks to its mechanism of action, it is also an excellent adjuvant in the treatment of dermatological conditions, in addition to improving recovery from cosmetic procedures.
Available in 120 mint flavored mini softgels.
TRANSFORM YOUR SKIN FROM THE INSIDE
Topical skin treatments have limited penetration due to epidermal barrier function. Bend's Anti-Aging formula overcomes this hurdle by delivering its six active ingredients via dermal blood supply. Although the epidermis does not have its own blood supply, it is nourished by the dermal cells through a process of diffusion. Bend's Anti-Aging formula improves skin climate by altering eicosanoid production, signaling pathways, cell membrane function and reducing oxidative stress. This physiological change improves skin function, repair and resilience.
Clinically validated ingredients that work synergistically
Bend's Anti-Aging formula offers clinically proven ingredients working in synergy. We've leveraged over 10 years of scientific research in this field to develop the first broad-spectrum, orally-delivered, anti-aging skincare. In addition, our two formulations (liquid and capsules) benefit from a unique lipid matrix which improves the bioavailability of its constituents.
EPA An active form of omega-3 derived from fish oil. Primary regulator of inflammation in the body. Protects against UV damage.
DHA An active form of omega-3 derived from fish oil. Improves the function of the cell membrane of the skin.
GLA Omega-6 derived from borage, a plant species. Unique anti-inflammatory properties. Increases skin lipids.
Zeaxanthin An antioxidant derived from a particular strain of paprika. One of the strongest absorbers of sunlight. Lutein An antioxidant derived from marigold flowers. Properties similar to zeaxanthin.
Vitamin D Same form as that produced in the skin when exposed to sunlight. Helps reduce skin inflammation.
Helps protect against UV burns
EPA and DHA, the long-chain omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil, have been shown to reduce UV-induced skin sensitivity. 1 These fatty acids, particularly EPA, are thought to confer this benefit by attenuating oxidative damage in tissues and reducing the production of inflammatory mediators. 2–6 Antioxidants, lutein and zeaxanthin also increase the skin's natural defense against sunburn by protecting against UV-induced free radicals. 7
Improves skin hydration
The skin acquires its nutrition from the blood. Therefore, it is essential to provide the skin with lipids that act directly in maintaining the barrier function of the stratum corneum or precursors of these lipids. GLA, an omega-6 fatty acid, cannot be produced by the skin and is necessary for optimal skin structure to improve skin hydration. 8 The antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin have been suggested to enhance skin barrier function through their incorporation into corneocytes and intercellular lipids to increase barrier function, and thereby reduce transepidermal water loss. 7
Improves roughness and redness (due to inflammation)
Increasing your intake of EPA and DHA, long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, leads to an increase in these lipids in the skin. These fatty acids, especially EPA, are metabolized into anti-inflammatory compounds in the skin, reducing inflammation, redness and flaking. GLA, an omega-6 fatty acid, helps improve the structure and barrier function of the skin, which when compromised develops redness and irritation. GLA also works in an anti-inflammatory mechanism when it is converted into dihomo-GLA (DGLA), which is metabolized into anti-inflammatory compounds that help the skin return to a non-inflamed state. 8
Improves skin elasticity and firmness
The carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin, along with the essential fatty acids EPA, DHA and GLA, have been shown to improve skin elasticity and firmness. The mechanism of lutein and zeaxanthin is thought to be related to their incorporation into corneocyte membranes and intercellular lipids to affect skin plasticity. 7 As we age, there is an increase in chronic inflammation and free radical levels in the skin. This damage is mitigated by the anti-inflammatory properties of omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, as well as omega-6 fatty acid GLA.
Provides antioxidants for healthy skin
Carotenoids play an important role as antioxidants protecting the skin against free radicals formed by environmental and physiological stressors. 9 They cannot be synthesized by the body and therefore must be supplied by external means such as food. Both lutein and zeaxanthin have been shown to have a positive effect on skin oxidation, proving their antioxidant capacity in the skin. 7L
