Renew + Protect is a blend of high-quality fish and borage oils, providing omega-3s, EPA, DHA, and 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 – making it the first step to ensuring optimal skin health and longevity. The unique blend of the six active ingredients in Renew + Protect provides the foundation for an effective, full-body skincare routine. 

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 skin roughness and redness (from 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.

“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.” – Carolyn W

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 its 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.

“This product is my go-to for fabulous skin. Before I started, my skin was rashy, and red, burned easily in the sun (even with sunscreen), and had dark circles under my eyes. I noticed a huge change with all of the above after supplementing with Renew + Protect for 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 P
