A Halifax Brand Bans The Term “Anti-Aging” + More Beauty News This Week

The term “anti-aging” is out at Bend Beauty, Gwyneth Paltrow rings in 48 with the release of a body cream and more.

Bend Beauty ditches the term anti-aging

Halifax-based oral skincare supplement brand Bend Beauty is changing the way it talks about aging. A pioneer in the growing ingestible beauty game, Bend Beauty made the move this week of phasing out the term “anti-aging” – one of the most powerful and enduring phrases in the beauty realm – from its hero supplement sku. Renamed as Renew + Protect, the much-welcomed refresh takes a positivity-charged stance on the skin’s natural aging process instead of casting it as something that should be fought against. “It’s the same great product (and same formulation) you’ve always loved, re-named to more accurately reflect the efficacy of our products and the positive effects they have on skin health and longevity,” the brand recently stated on its blog. Infused with good-for-you ingredients like fish oil, marigold flower extract and vitamin D3, Renew + Protect ($80) comes in liquid form and mini soft-gel capsules, and works to help reduce UV-induced skin sensitivity as well as improve hydration and elasticity.

Available on, the luxe body cream, spiked with bacuri butter, caviar lime and mulberry leaf, works to brighten skin’s appearance by boosting cell turnover while also delivering intensive moisture. Sounds like the ideal rich moisturizer for the cooler, drab months ahead if you ask us.
