PhytAge Plus Review: Does It Really Work?

By HighYa Research Team
Published on: Sep 12, 2016

PhytAge Plus natural anti-aging supplement—or “total skin rejuvenation package,” as the company calls it—that promises to deliver a more youthful appearance by reducing many common signs of aging, including lines, wrinkles, and sun damage.

To accomplish this, the company tells us that PhytAge’s natural ingredients are engineered to deliver rejuvenating hydration, and to “renew skin cells from within.” According to the manufacturer, all you need to do is take two capsules twice daily on an empty stomach, and this scientifically backed supplement will deliver optimum results after 90 days.

On top of this, PhytAge Plus claims to be as safe as a daily multivitamin.

After combing through the evidence, is PhytAge Plus really any kind of “breakthrough,” as claimed by the company, or is it just another entry in the long line of supplements that overpromise and under-deliver? While we didn’t test the supplement firsthand, we’ll spend this review talking about what we learned about PhytAge (the supplement and the company) from publically available sources.

What Makes You Look Older?

When we’re young, our body produces plenty of collagen and elastin, two proteins essential for youthful, healthy looking skin. How do they work?

In a nutshell, collagen acts as a kind of structural framework for your skin, helping to maintain smoothness and firmness. Elastin, on the other hand, provides elasticity, giving your skin the ability to snap back into place after being stretched. So, as you might imagine, having less of these proteins in your body leads to things like wrinkles, sagging skin, age spots, and a dull complexion.

But it doesn’t stop there, because a secondary aging process occurs as a result of certain lifestyle factors, such as excessive sun exposure, smoking, drinking too much alcohol, undergoing too much stress, getting too little sleep, and more. These factors can lead to premature aging, which causes many natural signs of aging to appear earlier and make you look older before your time.

Are PhytAge Plus’ Phytoceramides and Other Ingredients Effective?

According to the label on their site, PhytAge Plus contains the following ingredients:

Phytoceramides are a waxy lipid molecule derived from plants (in the instance of PhytAge Plus, it’s rice), that some anti-aging companies claim can help replace the ceramides we lose during the natural aging process. However, there’s little-to-no clinical evidence to support this assertion.

PhytAge Plus’ rice phytoceramides seem to be derived from a proprietary ingredient named Ceramide-PCD, which is manufactured by Anderson Global Group. On their website, the company provides links to several different trials studying the benefits related to moisturization, acne, and even skin whitening. It’s unclear if these studies were peer-reviewed though, or if their results have been duplicated in subsequent studies.

Finally, as you likely know, vitamins A, C, D, and E are all essential for human health and proper bodily function, so if you’re deficient, you may appear prematurely old. In otherwise healthy individuals, though, there isn’t any clinical evidence indicating oral supplementation can provide any anti-aging benefits.

Mixed clinical evidence aside, how much will you pay for a bottle of PhytAge Plus?

How Much Does PhytAge Plus Cost?

One bottle (30 capsules) of the PhytAge Plus beauty supplement will cost you $69.95, plus free S&H.

Important note: According to PhytAge’s FAQ, it could take as long as 5 days from your date of purchase to receive tracking details, and as long as 7 days to ship your order.

Per the company’s Terms, all PhytAge Plus orders come with a 90-day return window, less S&H. In order to process a refund, you’ll need to contact customer service at 800-822-5753 or

What Can We Learn from PhytAge Plus Reviews?

While we found a couple similarly named products during our research, we didn’t come across any customer feedback specifically for PhytAge Plus. This is likely because it was a very new supplement at the time.

But the reality is that if you’re looking for a phytoceramide-based anti-aging supplement, you literally have thousands of different options to choose from online. And if you also add phytoceramide creams into the mix, you’ll have thousands more options.

In fact, we’ve even reviewed one popular option here at HighYa named Miracle Phytoceramides.

Now, it’s important to keep in mind that none of these other products come from the same manufacturer as PhytAge Plus, so there’s no way to know if you’ll experience any of the same things expressed in their reviews. However, common complaints for anti-aging products in general tend to reference no results (or at least, results not in line with the company’s promises), high prices, and poor customer service.

Speaking of the manufacturer, PhytAge Plus is brought to you by PhytAge Laboratories, based out of Centennial, CO. According to the supplement’s website, the company is comprised of “a unique team of health and industry professionals dedicated to unlocking the secrets of happier living through a more youthful appearance.” They weren’t listed with the Better Business Bureau, and we didn’t find any additional information about them through third-party websites.

Let’s bring everything we’ve learned so far together.

Will PhytAge Plus Deliver Real-World Results?

Until Dr. Oz promoted phytoceramides in his October 2012 episode named “Drop Decades From Your Face,” these substances were largely unknown to the general public. Even today, if you search online for scientific details about phytoceramides, you’ll still have to do a fair amount of digging before finding much other than massively overblown claims from thousands of different anti-aging products manufacturers.

Whether or not there’s a lot of publically information available about phytoceramides though, the reality is that, based on the available evidence, the scientific community seems to remain skeptical about its ability to reduce or prevent the signs of aging.

Regarding PhytAge Plus specifically, we have a brand new supplement from a basically unknown company, with ingredients that have little-to-no clinical evidence to support their efficacy, all of which can be yours for the steep price of nearly $70. What’s this mean for you?

While we certainly won’t tell you what to do with your money, if we were in the market for something to help turn back the hands of time (after all, we shop online too!), we think we’d get a better value by making an appointment with our dermatologist, versus placing an order for PhytAge Plus.

    I bought this product believing

    • By Margaret H.,

    I bought this product thinking that it would do what it claimed but instead, my blood sugar started raising immediately and that got me upset for I paid almost $500.00, this was for a 90-day period, and after reading the labels all I saw was vitamins and minerals. The last thing I will say is the gluco type 2 was a separate charge that I was not told about until I saw my credit card statement.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    They're scammers

    • By Bill M.,

    I ordered two bottles which should have totaled around $110.00. But they claimed I ordered four bottles and billed me for around $189.00. Then they hit my credit card for $ 297.00 which, thank goodness, the credit card company refused to pay. They claimed the product already shipped, which I did not believe since I was talking with them a mere 12 hours after placing the order.

    I was told to return the product and once they receive it, to call them back.

    Customer service was extremely rude. I felt like I was talking to a brick wall. I spent an hour and a half dealing with this ordeal, and it's not over yet.

    Clearly, this is a typical scam. I wouldn't recommend this to my worst enemy.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    My experience with PhytAge Plus

    • By Gail L.,

    I'm pretty happy with PhytAge Plus, this supplement seems to work for me. My skin is more hydrated and wrinkles seem to be less visible. My buying experience has been good with quick free shipping. I was skeptical since nothing was happening for the first little while, but then my skin became softer and less dry.

    Good company to deal with. I haven't had any problems whatsoever.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Dishonest vendor not honoring refund policy

    • By Dennis M.,
    • Las Vegas, NV,

    • Verified Reviewer

    I applied for a refund of $199.80 on 8/3/18, sent via USPS on 8/1/18, which was received by PhytAge Labs on 8/3/18.

    I was told that a refund was issued on 8/7/18 and that it would take up to 15 business days to reach my account. When I didn't receive the refund by 8/23/18, I inquired to find out why? I was told that in fact the refund was NOT issued even though

    No notice was given to me nor even an apology. They explained that their payment processor went out of business and that it was my problem, not theirs. (I doubt that any rational human could comprehend such a concept as I certainly can't.) Since the time allowed for doing a dispute had already passed, I couldn't dispute the transaction with my bank.

    After spending hours on the phone with Anthony and Robert, with promises of doing whatever was necessary to get the refund to me, it turns out they had lied to me and that no refund was going to be issued. Rather than work with me to find a solution, as they promised twice, they simply decided to ignore me with promised return phone calls which never came. Even though there are multiple methods to get the refund to me, they refuse to do so.

    I wouldn't trust these people with your money or your time.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
