All over protection for the skin… from within

Powerful and proven suncare-from-within is now within reach thanks to a new tomato and rosemary extract from Lycored

Sunscreen is always a smart choice but increasingly clinicians agree that tackling skin damage from the inside out with ingestible products is more efficient and effective than applying topical creams and sprays alone. This is particularly true because the majority of our exposure to the sun is incidental, occurring during normal every-day activities when we are less likely to use topical products, rather than through intentional sunbathing.

Human trials have shown lycopene to be a powerful natural ingredient that supports the dermal barrier function that protects the skin from ageing caused by the sun’s rays. At Lycored we found this activity was strengthened further when lycopene was combined with two other tomato carotenoids – phytoene and phytofluene – as well as carnosic acid, the active ingredient in our proprietary rosemary extract.
