Renew + Protect – Mini Softgel
Taking a daily dose of Renew + Protect:
- Helps in reducing skin sensitivity to UV-induced sunburn**
- Helps improve skin hydration
- Helps improve skin elasticity and firmness
- Helps improve roughness and redness (from skin inflammation)
- Provides antioxidants for skin health
- Is a source of antioxidants for the maintenance of eye health
**In a clinical trial, participants who took Renew + Protect daily experienced an 84% average increase in minimal erythema dose (MED), representing the amount of UV radiation required to create a sunburn, compared to baseline after 8 weeks of supplementation.
Renew + Protect is a blend of high-quality fish and borage oils, providing omega-3s, EPA, DHA, and essential omega-6, GLA, as well as antioxidants, lutein and zeaxanthin, and vitamin D. These ingredients work synergistically to renew your overall skin health while aiding in the protection of your skin from harmful external factors like UV damage. So much more complex than a fish oil supplement, Renew + Protect is backed by a groundbreaking clinical trial that demonstrates its ability to increase skin resistance to UV-induced sunburn. The incredible array of Health Canada-authorized claims makes it the foundation of an ideal full-body skincare routine. Self-love starts with a daily dose of Renew + Protect.

What Makes Renew & Protect So Effective?
Omega-3s and Omega-6: Maintaining a balance in omega-3s and -6s is key to overall health and wellness. While omega-6s are often given a bad rap, they are necessary, and some, including GLA, have beneficial properties including supporting skin hydration. The omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA are sourced from wild anchovies, sardines, mackerel, and herring. They are from sustainably managed fisheries and meet high standards of quality and purity. EPA and DHA have been shown to increase the skin’s sunburn threshold, improve the skin barrier function and improve roughness and redness.
Carotenoids (Lutein + Zeaxanthin): Carotenoids play an important role as antioxidants protecting the skin against free radicals formed by external (environmental) and internal (physiological, bodily function) stressors. They cannot be made by the body and must be supplied by external means such as diet or supplementation. Lutein and zeaxanthin benefit the skin by increasing the skin’s defense against free radicals generated by UV exposure and supporting skin hydration, elasticity, and firmness.
Vitamin D3: Most of us don’t obtain enough vitamin D in our daily routines – Renew + Protect has you covered. This necessary vitamin helps in the development of bones and the maintenance of bone structure, which becomes increasingly important as we age.
This is the Bend Beauty product we recommend as the starting point because of the diverse array of impactful benefits this formula offers. Renew + Protect is an effective and unique blend of ingredients designed to help you create a beautiful life – which starts with taking care of yourself.
Renew + Protect is our foundational formula for a reason – it targets multiple aspects of skin health important for maintaining function and integrity and reduces the impact of environmental stressors to which your skin is constantly exposed to, such as UV radiation. In addition, ingesting Renew + Protect does not merely treat the skin on your face – it’s a total body skin health supplement that treats your entire skin, head to toe.
If you experience:
- Dry skin
- Roughness and redness caused by eczema/atopic dermatitis
- Uneven skin tone/texture
- Fine lines
- Redness (i.e. rosacea)

Since I am younger, I didn’t think the product would make much of a difference on my skin. I was willing to try and was amazed when I saw how much my skin had improved in the after shots.*Aisha, 24
Symptoms: Roughness, redness, hydration, skin tone.
10/10 helped my skin stay clear and supple and I haven’t gotten a bad sunburn once since I started taking them! I tell all my friends to start taking these. Worth the money.

I cannot say enough good things about this product (and all your products actually). I have very dry, rosacea prone, menopausal skin. I am also easily sunburned. As a result, I take my skincare & suncare very seriously. I am on my second month of both this & the collagen powder. My skin is clear, glowing, plump and redness 90% reduced. It hasn’t looked this good in several years. I no longer suffer with nightly red, burning cheeks. BUT, the best part: Recently on a trip, both my spouse & I applied the exact same SPF 50 head to toe. He has olive skin that tans easily, I’m freckly & fair. We were both in the sun for the same 90 minutes. Later that night he had a noticeable sunburn. I had no visible redness or colour change. I’m not saying this supplement is by any means a substitute to sunscreen but I do believe it is an additional step to protecting our skin against oxidative stress caused by free radicals and sun. I will never be without my BEND products. I have tossed so many unnecessary topical serums & creams in favour of these supplements.

This product is my go too for fabulous skin.. Before I started with this product.. my skin was rashy, red, burnt easily in the skin even with sunscreen and I had dark circles under my eyes.. I noticed a huge change with all of the above after supplementing with Renew & Protect after 1 month. I cannot express how in love I am with this product and I will never leave it out of my daily routine. Thank you Bend for creating such a beauty product. – Sylvia
So easy to take and amazing results.
I noticed the difference with my hair after 2 weeks. I’ve always had acne prone skin and the breakouts have been few and far in between.
I’m on month two of using the Bend Renew and Protect capsules and my hairdresser noticed a difference! I’ve been with my hairdresser for 6 years and this is the first visit we didn’t need to trim my split ends. Love it!
I have been taking both Marine Collagen + Co-Factors and Renew + Protect for about two years. For my entire life, up until I started taking these two supplements, I had skin bumps on my upper arms and thighs. Within 3 months of taking both products, those bumps were gone. In addition, my skin became silky smooth over my entire body. Dry skin has been a constant problem for me too, but now the skin on my hands never cracks like it used to every winter. I also had really thin hair my entire life, and it is definitely thicker now.
I was first introduced to Bend Beauty a couple years ago, and I have been taking Renew + Protect in the capsule form ever since. Omega supplements + collagen were prescribed to me to treat my severe dry eye condition, however I was challenged to find ones I liked, and wanted supplements that included other benefits and key ingredients to help my body absorb them. I’ve always loved skincare, but Bend has taught me about treating one’s skin from within, through diet and supplementation, and that it is just as important as skincare applied topically. I have been recommending them and praising them ever since I started taking them, because I have seen and felt a noticeable difference in the texture and appearance of my skin, hair, nails, energy levels, eye health, and more, since adding to my routine. I will never NOT take these.
This product is definitely my top product for my skin and hair. It’s true that beauty starts from within. My skin is glowing and I don’t have the dry patches I used to. Also, my hair is the healthiest it’s ever been. I can’t rave enough about this product. Life changer !

I have taken these supplements for the past 3 years and it has made such a significant improvement in my skin, nail and hair health. I simply can’t live without it and highly recommend it!
I have been taking this product for 3 years now.. and can’t seem to live without it. I have noticed some significant changes in my skin shortly after incorporating this product into my health care routine. My skin feels super soft and hydrated and I never get red on exposed skin when out in the sun for a period of time ( hard for someone that has super fair skin). I love the capsules because they are easy to take with me when I travel and they do not have any fishy aftertaste. Never will go without this product. Thank you Bend!
I started taking this product when I was 38 and now at 43 I can say it helps with fine lines and skin firmness. I often get IPL at the spa and have been told my skin is amazing for being 43 with very little sun damage. The capsules are very easy to take and I have never had a fishy taste afterwards. My husband has been taking the product for a few years as well and his skin is amazing and the fish oil helps with his joint inflammation.
This product was a game changer for my overall skin health. I was definitely a skeptic and began using the product daily- I am constantly getting comments on how youthful my skin looks- I’m 36 and people are usually surprised when they hear that!
After three months of taking Renew and Protect, I noticed a reduction in the fine lines on my forehead and around my eyes, as well as increased sun protection throughout the summer, which was a real bonus for my fair, freckly skin. The mint flavour is subtle and there is no fishy aftertaste I’ve noticed with some other fish oil/DHA capsules.
I have been using the Renew + Protect softgels every morning for about three years now (along with the Marine Collagen) and I have been receiving compliments on my skin for just as long. Not only do I see a visual difference, but I love that they’re also a source of Vitamin D. Would definitely recommend!
R+P is literally the first thing I take on a daily basis. It’s become the foundation of my daily wellness regime in addition to skin health. My first summer on R+P is what led me to become a fan for life. I no longer endure redness from sun exposure – and I know that’s what is going to keep my skin feeling great for years to come.
I have been taking the softgels every day for the past three years. It has helped my skin, my hair and my nails so much. This will remain a staple in my skincare routine.
Easy mint capsules to take in the morning. I noticed my skin feel more elastic and bouncy after a couple months of taking. I also enjoyed the sun protection benefit – I’m fair skinned, and over the past summer I noticed how my skin didn’t get sun burnt as easily.
These capsules are my favourite Bend Beauty product. The array of benefits are amazing, and I really noticed the sun protection element after being on this product for several months. The capsules are convenient, and I love that they have vitamin D in them so I was able to eliminate that supplement from my routine.
