Q & A

Bend Beauty – 

RENEW + PROTECT

IS BEND RENEW + PROTECT VEGAN?

Our Renew + Protect contains ingredients derived from animals, and therefore, it is not vegan. Both the soft gel and liquid formulations contain fish oil and vitamin D derived from sheep wool. The soft gels contain beeswax, and their capsule shell is made of bovine gelatin.

IS RENEW + PROTECT TESTED ON ANIMALS?

No. We do not conduct animal testing, or engage any third parties to do so.

IS RENEW + PROTECT SAFE TO TAKE DURING PREGNANCY OR BREASTFEEDING?

Renew + Protect does not have any known contraindications. However, as with any dietary supplement, we recommend that you consult with a healthcare practitioner prior to use during pregnancy or while breastfeeding, to make sure the product is right for you. You can find more info on this question on our blog here.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE BEFORE YOU START NOTICING RESULTS IN YOUR SKIN WITH BEND SKINCARE?

Typically, people first notice some results after two weeks, and full benefits after three to four months of supplementation. This is based on the amount of time the active ingredients tend to take to saturate your cells.

CAN SOMEONE WITH A FOOD SENSITIVITY TO SOY TAKE RENEW + PROTECT?

Both the liquid and soft gel products contain tocopherols derived from refined soybean oil. These tocopherols are highly refined, which puts them at low risk of causing a reaction. You may see “tocopherols (derived from non-GMO soy)” in the ingredient list; this is disclosed in case of extreme allergies.

CAN I TAKE RENEW + PROTECT WITH MEDICATIONS?

It is unlikely that Renew + Protect will interact with medications. However, as with any dietary supplement, we recommend that you consult with a healthcare practitioner prior to use if you are taking any medications, or if you are undergoing treatment for a medical condition.

MY RENEW + PROTECT BOTTLE APPEARS CLOUDY AND THERE IS SEDIMENT AT THE BOTTOM OF THE BOTTLE. IS THIS NORMAL?

Yes. A few of the ingredients found in Renew + Protect are sparingly soluble or insoluble in oil, so they settle out over time. Please shake the liquid product before use, to ensure that you get the right dose of active ingredients. If the product has recently been agitated or disturbed, the sparingly soluble ingredients (lutein and zeaxanthin, and the oil insoluble monk fruit extract) are lifted from the bottom of the bottle, causing a hazy or opaque appearance. It is normal to see some sediment at the bottom of the bottle.

WHAT ALLERGENS ARE PRESENT IN RENEW + PROTECT?

We encourage individuals with allergies to read our product labels prior to use to make sure they are right for their individual needs. Ingredients found in Bend Beauty Renew + Protect do not contain the major allergens: milk, eggs, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, or wheat. It does contain fish oil and tocopherols derived from highly refined soybean oil. Highly refined oils, such as soybean, are exempt from allergen labeling due to their low allergen risk. We do disclose the source material of tocopherols in case of extreme soy allergies. Our fish oil input is free from shellfish (which encompasses both mollusks and crustaceans), however, it may pose an allergen risk for those with fish allergies.

ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS FROM YOUR PRODUCTS?

Since Renew + Protect is an oil-based product, some people may experience mild gastrointestinal disturbances. Our Marine Collagen + Co-Factors may also cause these symptoms.

HOW IS RENEW + PROTECT DIFFERENT FROM FISH OIL?

Fish oil by itself is a great supplement for overall health. It would not, however, provide the skin related benefits associated with Renew + Protect, which is the only anti-aging skincare product licensed in Canada by Health Canada.

Renew + Protect differs from fish oil supplements in a few ways. Firstly, it combines several synergistic ingredients into one supplement. The fish oil in Renew + Protect provides a 3:1 ratio of EPA: DHA. Borage oil is a powerful skin health ingredient that supports skin barrier properties, and is very effective (along with EPA) in treating skin inflammation. Zeaxanthin (from paprika) and lutein (from marigold flowers) are powerful skin antioxidants that also work alongside EPA to protect against UV related skin damage and aging. It also contains vitamin D, which offers a myriad of skin health and longevity benefits.

It also contains vitamin D, which offers a myriad of skin health and longevity benefits.

IS RENEW + PROTECT ASSOCIATED WITH IMPROVEMENTS IN ECZEMA?

The active ingredients in Renew + Protect, particularly the fatty acids GLA, EPA, and DHA, have been shown to help improve symptoms such as roughness and redness associated with atopic dermatitis (the most common type of eczema).

ARE YOUR PRODUCTS SAFE TO TAKE BEYOND THE EXPIRY DATE?

We cannot guarantee the quality of our products beyond the expiry date.

WHAT SHOULD I TAKE: CAPSULES OR LIQUID? ARE THERE DIFFERENCES IN THEIR BIOAVAILABILITY?

We have not done any clinical studies to determine if there is a difference in absorption or speed of delivery between our liquid and capsule versions of Renew + Protect. However, gelatin capsules are easily digested in the stomach, where they release the active ingredients. So, whether you decide to take our liquid or capsules comes down to preference and lifestyle. (The liquid must be refrigerated after opening, making capsules the ideal choice for travel.)

There are a few differences in the non-medicinal ingredients. Sunflower lecithin and beeswax are added to the capsule to thicken the material inside and ensure each capsule contains a homogeneous mixture. The capsules are also mint flavored, making them a suitable alternative for people with citrus sensitivities. And they don’t contain the naturally derived sweetener, monk fruit extract, which the liquid does.

There are a few other differences between the two products that may help you choose.

Each bottle of capsules contains 30 servings, whereas the liquid contains 40 servings. The liquid must be refrigerated after opening and should be used within 100 days. Capsules do not need to be refrigerated and are convenient to travel with. When stored appropriately, they can be used until the listed expiry date.

DOES RENEW + PROTECT CONTAIN OMEGA-3 FATTY ACIDS?

Yes, our Renew & Protect Formula contains fish oil, which is rich in the omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). It contains. 1050 mg of EPA and 350 mg DHA. In addition to these omega-3 fatty acids, Renew + Protect contains the omega-6 fatty acid gamma linolenic acid (GLA), antioxidants, lutein and zeaxanthin, and vitamin D3. Together these ingredients work synergistically to produce clinically proven skin health and longevity benefits.

DO YOUR PRODUCTS CONTAIN GLUTEN? ARE YOUR PRODUCTS GLUTEN-FREE?

Our finished products are not tested for the presence of gluten. However, the input ingredients used in Renew + Protect liquid and capsules, as well as our Marine Collagen + Co-Factors product, do not contain any known sources of gluten.

CAN CHILDREN (OR PEOPLE UNDER 19) TAKE RENEW + PROTECT?

This product is not intended for children. Please consult with a healthcare practitioner if you would like to pursue using Renew + Protect outside of our label recommendations, including use by children.

CAN I CONTINUE TAKING THE LIQUID FORMULATION IF I FORGOT TO REFRIGERATE IT?

Many of the medicinal ingredients, including the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, and the omega-6 GLA, in Renew + Protect are susceptible to degradation. Therefore, we take precautions during manufacturing and bottling to protect the integrity of the product. Once the bottle of the liquid formulation is opened, the product is exposed to oxygen, which initiates degradation reactions, and increases oxidation. Refrigeration helps slow these breakdown reactions, and is one of the protective measures that maintain the product’s potency over its open shelf life. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee the concentration of the medicinal ingredients or the oxidative stability of Renew + Protect liquid if it has not been refrigerated after opening. We don’t recommend using any product that has not been stored as directed.

WHEN SHOULD I TAKE YOUR PRODUCTS?

Our products can be taken anytime. Some people prefer to take Renew + Protect with food.

Frequently Asked Questions

Osmosis Skincare

What is Osmosis Skincare?

Osmosis Beauty is a disruptive skincare brand. We've created patented, exclusive skincare and wellness technology that holistically restores the skin to a youthful and toxin-free environment. Our results for aging, rosacea, blemish-prone skin, and more are second to none.

Is Osmosis Skincare medical grade?

Yes. Each innovative offering will remain doctor-developed and medical-grade, formulated with patented actives and proprietary nutrients that deliver transformative results without harming the skin.

Are Osmosis products natural and organic?

In most cases, we use natural and bio-identical ingredients. Our clean, non-toxic formulas are holistic because they do not cause harm to the skin. Osmosis opted not to focus on organic products because we do not think they make lasting changes to the skin. Organic is really important in foods because of the properties of pesticides and the additives otherwise present. In skincare, this is not an issue so there is no advantage. However, there is a distinct disadvantage because they only allow 5% or less of the key ingredients that make real change in the skin. By using natural formulas full of our patented and/or exclusive ingredients, we are doing much more good to the skin.

Are Osmosis products gluten-free and vegan?

Most of our products are vegan and gluten-free. Please check individual products for specific ingredient information.

Which products are Oncology Friendly?

The majority of our MD, Skincare, and Colour products are Oncology Friendly. The recommendation and use of these products should be done by trained professionals in Oncology Skincare to ensure safe and effective use. Some products may not be recommended for certain types of cancer or during certain stages.

Do you test your products on animals?

We do NOT test on animals or endorse such practices.

Can you use Osmosis while pregnant?

While pregnant or breastfeeding, you may use all of the Osmosis products with the exception of Skin Clarifier and Skin Defense.

What is the difference between Melt Away Gelee and Lift Away Cleansing Balm?

Melt Away Gelee is best used as a makeup remover for the eyes and lips. It contains a much higher oil content than our Nourish Avocado Facial Oil which gives it the ability to effectively break down high-performance makeup like waterproof mascara, liquid eye liner, long-wear lipstick, etc., but will not necessarily cleanse or thoroughly detoxify the skin. While Lift Away will remove makeup and debris, it is more effective in cleansing the skin as it removes toxins and provides nourishment. Lift Away also contains more emollients, but not as much oil, so it wipes or rinses away much cleaner.

What is the difference between Immerse and Nourish?

Immerse's primary oil is Emu Oil which is richer and heavier than Nourish, making it great for massages and promoting wound healing. Nourish's main ingredient is frequency-enhanced organic avocado oil to harmonize, heal, and regenerate (like our Elixirs). This makes it very unique! Nourish is a lighter oil and can even be used under makeup or as a daily moisturizer for overly dry, dehydrated skin.
