"We are seeing compelling science expanding the macular carotenoids beyond vision into exciting new categories such as skin health, and our robust clinical program is rapidly expanding this growing breadth of research," said Lynda Doyle, senior vice president of global marketing of OmniActive Health Technologies. "The results of the Beautiful Skin Forever Study serve as an important part of our Lutein For Every Age program, further supporting our ongoing efforts to help build new claims and concepts for the industry."
Beautiful Skin Forever was a 12-week double-blind, placebo-controlled parallel study in healthy men and women (ages 18-45 years) with mild to moderate dry skin in which subjects supplemented daily with either a placebo or 10 mg Lutemax 2020. Lutemax 2020 supplementation resulted in improved overall skin tone, skin lightening/brightening, photo-protection and skin firmness, according to study results.
Lutemax 2020 is a naturally-derived marigold extract providing all three macular carotenoids (lutein and enhanced levels of both zeaxanthin isomers-RR-and RS [meso]-zeaxanthin) at the same 5:1 ratio as found in nature. FDA-GRAS notified Lutemax 2020 is manufactured under a fully vertically integrated source.
