The story of AGE QUENCHER®
We didn’t set out to create a beauty line. Instead, AGE QUENCHER® sparked by a leading Canadian Naturopathic Doctor, when she received a simple plea from one of her patients, a young woman whose cancer treatment had led to early menopause. “How can I maintain my energy and vitality as I undergo these physical changes?”
That question started a mission to create trusted products backed by science. The formulations created helped not only that woman but also many others. People reported that they not only feel better, but that their skin became more youthful and radiant and there were visible improvements in their hair and nails. The Age Quencher product became available at small clinics in Toronto.
The transition from vitamin to the AGE QUENCHER® Beauty System came courtesy of prominent Canadian businesswoman Belinda Stronach. Belinda has always made her personal health and wellness and investing in it a priority. Recognizing the changes she experienced while on the program – an increase in her energy and the bonus of a noticeable glow – Belinda knew this was something to be shared. Inspired by the products authenticity, formulations and quality, Belinda leveraged her business know-how, and that of marketing executive Beverley Hammond, to bring the Age Quencher Beauty System to other women across North America.
In 2015, what was an accident became an intention, and the AGE QUENCHER® Beauty System was born.
In 2017, to support the demand for these innovative products, AGE QUENCHER® was joined by a new partner Colin Sutherland who took over Belinda Stronach's interest in the company to leverage his expertise to expand the AGE QUENCHER® line across North America and beyond.
The Team Behind AGE QUENCHER®
Well-known in Canadian marketing and media circles, Beverley Hammond is an entrepreneur and the founder and CEO of Toronto-based marketing communications agency, REPUBLIC.
Her 28-year career has spanned the worlds of politics, advertising and PR where she held senior positions for high profile cabinet ministers, managed election campaigns at all levels of government and worked with some of North America’s most loved brands.
She says that about five years ago she woke up feeling like decades of trying to “be all things to all people” had caught up to her at once. It was a wake-up call. Still, at 50, running a busy agency and travelling most of the time, she finds it difficult do all of the things she knows she should to take care of herself as she ages.
So when she was first approached by a client about bringing a line of all-natural, anti-aging products to market, she was intrigued but admittedly skeptical. She then met with the product formulator a well known Canadian Naturopathic Doctor. She started investigating the science of ingestible skin care, and more importantly began using the formulations herself. Having experienced first-hand an increase in energy along with noticeable improvements in her skin, hair and nails, she’s not just a convert, she’s now a partner in AGE QUENCHER Solutions.
Beverley lives between Bracebridge and Toronto, Ontario and Scottsdale, Arizona with her retired husband.
