Key Benefits

Cruelty Free

Dermatologically Tested

Free From Harmful Chemicals

The skin on our hands is often the first giveaway to our age, but we often neglect it in our everyday skincare routine. Enriched with powerful natural antioxidants and phospholipids, Softening Hand Cream is the ultimate treat for hands, providing essential moisture and lasting hydration to leave skin feeling soft and supple, without the oily residue.

This scientifically formulated hand lotion helps reduce redness and protect skin from daily environmental damage such as UV rays, cold weather, and harsh soaps.

Easily absorbed, with a light fragrance of plum and vanilla blossom, it does not contain any nasty ingredients and is perfect for dry, damaged or irritated skin.

Softening Hand Cream Benefits:

  • Provides lasting hydration to rough, dry hands
  • Helps reduce redness and irritation
  • Fights the effects of environmental damage
  • Supports visibly younger, firmer looking skin

We are passionate about providing genuine nutrition for your skin. That’s why this hand cream contains Kanapa™ – our exclusive formula containing a powerful blend of natural ingredients including the powerhouse antioxidant Astaxanthin. Products that include Kanapa™ have been clinically proven to reduce the signs of aging, including a visible reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.

Manuka Honey

Manuka honey is a natural moisturizer and antioxidant, sourced in New Zealand. Dense in nutrients, it feeds your skin with essential vitamins, minerals and proteins.

Laminaria Ochroleuca Extract

Also known as ‘golden seaweed’, this lipid extract helps the skin on our hands resist oxidative stress, protecting and restoring skin from exposure to excessive sunlight and photo-inflammation.

Lipex Shea Light

A skin superfood packed full of essential fatty acids, phytosterols and antioxidants. Shea Butter is packed with nutrients including vitamins A and E, to support the production of collagen and elastin.

Nano-Lipobelle H EQ10

CoQ10 is essential for cell health. This topical coenzyme Q10 penetrates beneath the skin’s surface, helping to fight free radicals that are attracted to collagen and elastin.


This form of vitamin B5 helps with moisture retention and promotes recovery. It has been dubbed the “anti-stress vitamin” because it helps support the skin’s ability to manage stress.


Apply a small amount onto hands and massage until fully absorbed. Apply as often as desired. 

Suitable for all skin types.

Does Kanapa™ Softening Hand Cream absorb easily, without leaving a greasy residue?

Yes, Kanapa™ Softening Hand Cream does absorb very easily into the skin. It was important for us to ensure we formulated an easily absorbed blend, one that does not leave the hands greasy or oily. The fast absorption of the Softening Hand Cream is testament to the high quality ingredients in this product; they penetrate deeply for the best possible efficacy.

Can I use Kanapa™ Softening Hand Cream on my face or body?

You may use Kanapa™ Softening Hand Cream on the body, but it is not specifically designed for this and greater results will be experienced from using our Replenishing Body Lotion. It would also be more economical. Comparatively, we would not suggest using the Softening Hand Cream on the face as it does not contain some of the ingredients specific to our facial products that help care for facial skin which is thinner and more delicate than that of the hands.

Which ingredients do you source directly from New Zealand?

A number of our key ingredients are sourced from New Zealand. These include Manuka Honey, Kiwifruit Extract, and New Zealand Harakeke Oil and Mamaku Extract in our unique Kanapa™ blend.

Why are topical Omegas so important to include in Kanapa™ skincare?

Omega oils provide essential building blocks for youthful, healthy-looking skin. They strengthen the skin’s vital lipid barrier and re-energize skin cell activity to improve moisture levels, support overall skin health and help you resist premature aging. 

Do you test your skincare on animals?

Xtendlife does not conduct or commission animal testing on raw materials or finished products in any phase of development. We do not test on animals under any circumstances. We are deeply committed to respecting animal life and wellbeing, as well as our environment.
