How soon should I notice results from using Kanapa™ Ultra-Light Sheer Day and Night Cream?
Our clinical study was done for a period of six weeks, which is approximately how long a tube should last for - so you should start noticing results in this time. Although, as with any naturally based product results will vary for each person.
Is Kanapa™ Ultra-Light Sheer Day and Night Cream able to be used under makeup?
Consistent use of Kanapa™ Ultra-Light Sheer Day and Night Cream may help to reduce redness and even out skin tone, so that the complexion is naturally improved over time. Its lightweight satin consistency also makes it the perfect priming moisturizer to be applied under makeup.
Could the plant oils in Kanapa™ Ultra-Light Sheer Day and Night Cream cause my skin to break out?
We understand that this may seem counterintuitive; however, clean organic oils are beneficial, even for oily skin. If you have oily or combination skin, the Ultra-Light Sheer Day and Night Cream helps to keep your skin deeply hydrated so that overactive oil glands will have no need to compensate for the loss of moisture that can come with the use of chemical drying agents.
How is Kanapa™ Ultra-Light Sheer Day and Night Cream different to the Nourishing Day Cream and Restorative Night Cream?

How do I use Kanapa™ Ultra-Light Sheer Day and Night Cream?

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.
Does Kanapa™ 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.
Why do some of your products contain alcohol?
There are two types of alcohol used in skin care products. They are petroleum based and natural plant-based alcohols. Xtend-Life does not use any petroleum derived products. The type of alcohol's that are present are parts of ingredients that occur naturally, and they are non-drying to the skin and should not be confused with alcohol used by some other manufacturers which may have a negative effect on the skin.
