Carotenoid-based wellness specialist Lycored has launched a new extract especially created to support ageing beautifully.

Lumenato is an extract of natural tomato nutrients and antioxidants formulated specifically to offer clinically proven benefits for beauty and skin wellness. Ideally suited for supplements, it is predicted to become one of the company’s flagship ingredients, alongside its best-selling product, Lycomato.

Sourced from a proprietary, exotic tomato breed, Lumenato is the result of Lycored’s “beyond natural” philosophy. It 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. This means it supports a solvent-free declaration for ingestible skincare applications.

Rony Patishi-Chillim, CEO of Lycored, said: “Ingestible skincare is one of the most exciting categories in nutrition right now. 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.

Studies have linked carotenoids to physical attractiveness, believed to be the result of their powerful antioxidative action. Lumenato contains the carotenoids phytofluene phytoene, and zeta-carotene in optimal concentrations for beauty parameters.

The manufacturer says 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, SVP, 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.”
