Product Spotlight: Crystal Tomato
We all know tomatoes are good for our health. Besides being rich in Vitamin C, it’s also one of the richest sources of lycopene – an antioxidant. Lycopene has been shown to be beneficial to heart health, and even lower the risk of prostrate cancer in men.
It’s no surprise that tomatoes are a superfood for the skin: studies have shown that incorporating tomatoes into your diet helps to protect against UV damage from the sun.
Crystal Tomato is made from a specially bred, non-genetically modified white tomato rich in colourless carotenoids: phytoene (PE) and phytofluene (PF). PE and PF have excellent antioxidant properties, especially for the skin. Unlike the orange/red carotenoid which give tomatoes its red colour, colourless carotenoids don’t stain the skin. So you don’t have to worry about your skin getting stained a ghastly orange hue if you eat too many tomatoes!
Crystal Tomato is a dehydrated, powdered form of the white tomato, with each capsule containing 3 white tomatoes. Plus, L-cysteine is added: another antioxidant which helps with skin whitening. It comes in a convenient, once a day dose, specially designed for the busy modern man and woman.
Effects of Crystal Tomato
After consumption, PE and PF are quickly absorbed into the skin, where it exhibits its multi-action antioxidant effects:
Unlike other carotenoids, PE and PF lack any visible colour. Hence, they absorb light in the ultra-violet range, which make them ideal for offering protection against UVA/B damage from within. A recent study showed that the natural SPF of the skin was increased by as much as 20% after Crystal Tomato supplements!
Brighter, Fairer Skin:
PE and PF interfere with the biochemical pathways where melanin is formed. As a result, the formation of new pigment is reduced, and the skin becomes fairer/lighter.
Reduction of Existing Pigmentation:
PE, PF, and L-cysteine (which is converted to Glutathione in the body) also reduce existing pigmentation in the skin, easing conditions such as melasma, age spots, and acne scars.
Like normal tomatoes, Crystal Tomatoes exhibit anti-inflammatory properties, promoting wound and tissue healing.
For those of you who are looking for a safe, natural, and effective supplement for skin whitening, Crystal Tomato is a great choice.
