What are and why IBR-Phyto(flu)ene?

IBR-Phyto(flu)ene: phytoene and phytofluene, the COLOURLESS CAROTENOIDS, are colourless in the visible range, and absorb light in the UV range only. These molecules have effective and beneficial activities, enhancing skin anti-inflammatory capacity, protecting against UV and oxidative damage that can lead to premature aging along with protection of DNA from UV and free radical damage and collagen from degradation.
These activities, long substantiated with in-vitro and in-vivo studies, were now demonstrated to be effective in low concentration within the new clinical.

The outstanding results confirmed the ability of phytoene and phytofluene to be excellent and most suitable actives for anti ageing, photo-ageing, wrinkle reduction and skin protection.
