Sourced from a proprietary tomato breed, Lumenato is produced using a C02, solvent-free extraction process which keeps nutrients as close as possible to their natural form while maximizing their potency and synergy, the company said.
Suited for dietary supplements, the product supports a solvent-free declaration for ingestible skin care applications.
“Ingestible skincare is one of the most exciting categories in nutrition right now,” said Rony Patishi-Chillim, CEO of Lycored. “There’s huge demand for natural, scientifically proven supplements that can help the skin age beautifully. Lumenato meets a range of market needs and I’m delighted to welcome a new flagship product to our portfolio.”
Lumenato is designed to allow natural phytonutrients help the skin age beautifully by maintaining its softness, resilience, and suppleness, and boosting its ability to maintain natural radiance and inner glow, the company claimed. Recent research by Lycored found that these are key goals for skin care users, with 77% saying natural appearance is important to them, and 72% seeking a healthy glow.
Studies have linked carotenoids to physical attractiveness, believed to be the result of their antioxidative action. Lumenato contains the carotenoids phytofluene phytoene, and zeta-carotene in optimal concentrations for beauty parameters.
Testing in clinical settings has shown Lumenato to be bioavailable and to significantly elevate levels of the active phytonutrients. Studies have demonstrated that it can support the skin’s natural ability to calm the response to pro-inflammatory cytokines and maintain natural collagen levels.
Etgar Levy-Nissenbaum, senior vice president, global R&D at Lycored, said: “Lumenato is inspired by Lycored’s relationship with nature—in particular the humble tomato—which inspires everything we do. But it’s also the result of years of research and testing, as well as a vertically integrated production process, which means we can offer a product customers can trust.”
Karin Hermoni, head of science, health, at Lycored, said: “As we grow older, our skin requires greater upkeep to maintain its softness, radiance and resilience. Lumenato harnesses the natural power of the tomato to support skin from the inside out and help us age beautifully.”
Lumenato is plant-based, vegetarian, allergen free, gluten free, Kosher and Halal, and Non-GMO Project-Verified.
