Used in tandem with a broad-spectrum topical sunscreen, this supplement, clinically proven to brighten and strengthen skin while protecting it from sun damage, can help prevent premature skin ageing. Non-GMO tomatoes with colourless carotenoids, which are potent antioxidants, form the base of this supplement, helping to counter UV and inflammation-induced damage (the latter releases large amounts of melanin). There are also olive extracts, which have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties to help repair damaged skin, as well as L-Cysteine, an amino acid that supports the body’s production of the antioxidant glutathione.
Extracted from a unique breed of tomatoes, the carotenoids in this formula are colourless and won’t give skin an orange tint even when taken in large amounts. They work in tandem with L-Cysteine to stimulate the production of glutathione, which breaks down melanin to promote an overall brighter, more even tone.
