DefenAge 10 Luxe Hand & Body Cream is recommended by Suneel Chilukuri, M.D., cosmetic and dermatologic surgeon at Refresh Dermatology, for patients who want smooth, soft skin. The cream is promoted for its defensins, whose molecules are said to regenerate skin by signaling the body to "activate the dormant reserves of 'fresh' and young cells." DefenAge reportedly contains human-identical copies of defensins made via bio-synthesis.

The product's formulation features: Ophiopogon japonicus root extract to stimulate natural moisturizing factors; Sinorhizobium meliloti ferment to promote the skin’s natural production of hyaluronic acid, laminin and elastin; nourishing niacinamide to revive the skin’s natural moisture barrier; high performance hydrators squalene and panthenol; and sea whip—the strongest, fastest and most effective soothing ingredient sourced directly from the sea, according to the brand.
Progenitor Biologics, LLC, the product manufacturer and distributor, states this cream "reprograms skin to turn it younger every day," minimizing pores and wrinkles while improving brightness, tone, texture and hydration. Due to its unique mechanism of skin rejuvenation, the product can be combined with other skin care products and ingredients, including Retin-A and retinols, vitamin C, hyaluronic acid and growth factors, to enhance their effects and stimulate healthy, new skin cells.
