Lycored has spent years studying skin health. It has previously commissioned award-winning research showing that lycopene-rich tomato nutrient complex can balance the skin’s response from UV-induced upregulation of molecular markers associated with oxidative stress, inflammation and aging.
And at In Cosmetics Global the company will be publishing the results of new research on the skin protection benefits of tomato phytonutrients on 149 subjects. This research is significant as UV damage is identified as the primary preventable cause of skin aging, responsible for up to 90 percent of premature damage.
This new research supports increasing evidence that skin wellness can be enhanced at the cellular level. By oral supplementation of Lycoderm™, a blend of tomato and rosemary phytonutrients inspired by the Mediterranean diet, skin cells are better able to cope with environmental challenges by appearing visibly less red and increasing skin’s resilience against UV.
As ingestible skincare becomes increasingly mainstream, the “beauty from within” message is resonating even more strongly. There is growing understanding in the public that wellness and beauty are two sides of the same coin and that true beauty starts from the inside. The tested product, a nutritional solution from the tomato and rosemary, essential components of the Mediterranean diet, provides the basis for a multi-functional holistic approach to maximizing beauty and wellness, and responsibly addresses an unmet consumer need.
Lycoderm , Lycored’s proprietary carotenoid blend for skincare supplements, is specially designed to foster overall skin wellness from the inside out. It combines natural lycopene, phytoene and phytofluene from tomatoes with carnosic acid from rosemary leaf.
Lycoderm is standardized to preserve and enhance the natural efficacy of nutrients with skin wellness benefits.
