What is Clean Beauty in DefenAge?
clean skincare • clean formulas • clean ingredients
Since our very first formula, we committed to bringing the highest clean standards into skincare. We exceed common “industry standards” to make products safe; clean skincare is DefenAge’s philosophy and one of the key core values. Each ingredient that you find in our products, its manufacturing conditions, and quality and purity controls underwent a comprehensive review and evaluation before we decided to use it. We are constantly monitoring new studies, scientific and clinical research, and developments. DefenAge is the first skincare company that excluded both animal- and human- derived ingredients from skincare more than 5 years ago.
Our guarantee - you will NOT find these ingredients and compounds in our products:
Abrasives, aluminum salts, animal-derived ingredients, BPA, BHT/BHA, chemical sunscreens (oxybenzone, avobenzone, and octinoxate), coal tar, colorants, formaldehyde-releasing agents, formaldehydes, gluten ingredients (no wheat, oats, barley), growth factors, human-derived ingredients, hydroquinone, irritating acids, mineral oil, parabens, paraffin, petrolatum, phthalates, polyethylene and polypropylene (microbeads), propylene glycol, retinyl palmitate, sodium laureth sulfate, sodium lauryl sulfate, strong emulsifiers, sulfates (SLS and SLES), talc, triclocarban, triclosan, triethanolamine.
All DefenAge formulas are fragrance free.
Why is “Free from animal- and human-derived ingredients” important?
Certain types of diseases and infections can be transferred from animals to humans or from humans to humans. Our refusal to have such sources eliminates these risks. Instead, we maintain the same alternative bio-sources used when manufacturing drugs. DefenAge does not use any animal- or human-derived growth factors, conditioned media, whole or parts of animal or human cells, stem cells or tissues. We are proud that DefenAge is a brand that raised the bar of cosmetics to the grade of “free from animal- and human-derived ingredients”.
We do use one ingredient derived from an invertebrate. Sea whip is a Caribbean coral believed to be the strongest anti-inflammatory to come from the sea. Only the ‘skeletal’ portion of the sea whip is collected by harvesters, who leave the live animal unharmed and available to multiply. No known disease or infection source is transferrable from the coral to humans.

The term “clean beauty” means something different to everyone and even varies from brand to brand. DefenAge, an advanced anti-aging dermatologist recommended skin care brand, considers itself a clean beauty brand. The main reason is that its formulas are free from animal- and human-derived ingredients. No other dermatologist-dispensed lines claim this.
