Xtend-Life is a specialty, research-based manufacturer in New Zealand developing unique supplements & skincare

Our story

"We have hundreds of thousands of happy customers in more than 40 countries whose health spans have been improved by using our products… I am one of them.

I really get a kick out of the fact that we've got customers who have been with us for 20 years even though they are scattered all over the world. There is a lot of misinformation circulating about health and supplements. Most people are so busy that they don't have time to do in-depth research. This is why we do the research to ensure that our formulas get the results that you are looking for, and they really make a difference to the way you look and feel."

Our manufacturing facility

Our formulas are complex, and our ingredient specifications are much more exacting than 'normal' supplements. We comb the world from the Tibetan Plateau to the Amazon rainforest to find the most effective ingredients for the formulas objectives. This would not be possible if we were to produce our products like most other brands… with a contract manufacturer.

We control every step of the process. This is why in 2012, we built a new state-of-the-art pharmaceutical-grade facility in New Zealand to house all departments to ensure there are no compromises in any stage of the process. This replaced the three buildings we had used in the preceding years.

At the bottom of this page, there are videos about our facility and how the supplements are made.

Our people

Over the last 20 years, we have built a solid team of key people in the business, not only in our headquarters in New Zealand but globally. Like our customers in over 40 countries who are the most important part of our business, the people who make up our staff and advisors are also key to the success of Xtend-Life.

Equally important is that Xtend-Life remains a family-owned business and can operate in the best interests of customers and staff without the pressures of external financial interests.

In the last 20 years, we have serviced more than 350,000 customers in 40 countries, with thousands of customers still receiving their monthly packages 20 years later.

What customer's say


Best Vitamins in the World

The title of this review speaks for itself. I reviewed and studied vitamins being sold over the world, and Total Balance Men’s Premium is the best. Xtend-Life puts extensive effort into: creating vitamins that absorb the best in the body, studying what vitamins the body needs the most, and their quality control is the best I have read about. I cannot praise this company enough. 

Thank You, Xtend-Life.

I Love this Product!

I love the Foaming Facial Cleanser. I have naturally oily skin, and I like to preserve its natural oils, this cleanser doesn't dry my skin and isn't heavy at all. It's gentle and doesn't feel tight after washing, as some other products do. I stopped using it for a while and then found it hard to go back to other brands I had used in the past. So I have reordered and am looking forward to keeping on using it.

Thank You!

I would like to write to extend my heartfelt thanks to Warren and his fellow team for their sincerity, professionalism & helpfulness. You & your team live & breathe the very core DNA of what Xtend-Life stands for. I am very satisfied with the products & am proud to say that I have yet to come across another company that is genuine & epitomizes the Xtend- Life team's virtues.

Thank you all very much for your support.

Amazing Product

I have been using Total Balance Men’s Premium for more than 5 years, and I hope to be using it for the rest of my life. Before I started buying from this company, it took me 6 months to do my research about the company and the ingredients they are using...They are using high-quality raw ingredients not to comprise the end product. Keep up the good work, maintaining your high-quality standard, and keep innovating for a better life.

Falling in love with it. 

I was gifted Kanapa Luminous Facial Serum, and I'm falling in love with it. I use it mostly at night, and I love how it hydrates my skin. I've kept using this product since I love how moisturizing it is and gives my skin a healthy glow. I really like this Luminous Facial Serum because it has been dermatologically tested and suitable for every skin type, including sensitive skin.

Thank you Xtend-Life

Thank you, Xtend-Life! Your excellent customer service has made a huge impression on me.

I love your products so far, and the service I've received from your company is second to none! I will be recommending your products to everyone I know with confidence that they will be cared for as I have.

I purchased this product due to two very important issues relating to supplements.

First, it is manufactured in New Zealand, and all firms like this have to have the exact ingredients and their percentages shown on the bottle actually in the pill! No fake or shortage on what is advertised going on. Second, this newer product (CX8) has medical science backing up what the ingredients will actually do and contribute to which in my case has to do with cariological needs.

I have been using the women's skincare range for the past 8 years and would not change them for anything. I have never had any issues with the products, and they are so gentle and nourishing on the skin. I have also done research on the products before purchasing, and I must admit that I am really happy with the result and with my skin's condition. Thank you also to the amazing customer service representatives who were always helpful. You have created some wonderful products.

I suffered from chronic fatigue and about five years ago, my primary doctor recommended that I start taking a good multi-vitamin. I did some research and found out quickly that the "cheap", popular vitamin brands are basically a waste of money as they aren't readily absorbed into the body. A few reputable reports rated Xtend-Life among the best for absorption and balance in the supplements included. I do feel that these vitamins have helped me significantly over the past few years.

I received the softening hand cream with my supplement order, and I'm very glad I did. I have incredibly dry and sensitive skin, so I have to be very careful with my skincare products. Not only have I had no issues with using this hand cream, but the results are also really, very good. Smooth, pleasant, easily absorbed, and hands don't feel dry again within minutes. I'm really looking forward to exploring the other Kanapa products.

I wanted to thank Xtend-Life. So far, it has been very pleasant dealing with the customer service team at Xtend-Life. Everyone we have had the pleasure to speak to has been VERY cordial, professional and helpful. This unfortunately not always the case these days when dealing with other vendors.

I want to extend our sincere gratitude for the great, NO hassle service you have provided us.
