Only a small fraction of the lycopene you eat ever reaches your skin. Because the lycopene in raw tomatoes is tightly bound to indigestible fiber, little of it is absorbed by your body.121 And most of the lycopene that is ingested gets deposited in fat-rich organs such as your eyes, adrenal glands, colon, and liver—instead of your skin.121,122
The good news is the fat soluble nature and small molecule size of this plant nutrient make it more easily absorbed when applied topically to the lipid-rich environment of the skin!123 So Cosmesis has created a topical lycopene formulation in an antioxidant cream format.
Research suggests that antioxidants work synergistically124 … so Cosmesis incorporated a concentrated tea blend extract with polyphenol-rich components of red, green, and white tea. The protective effects of both lycopene and the tea extract bioactives combine to support the ability of healthy human skin to maintain its normal growth and repair, while providing natural protection against free radicals, and optimal defense against the visible effects of UV radiation!95,124-126
Lycopene—a potent antioxidant carotene—supports your body’s natural defenses against the visible signs of UV radiation, oxidative stress, and premature aging by:
Purified Water (Aqua), Cetearyl Alcohol, Squalane, Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Hyaluronic Acid, Polysorbate 60, Lycopene, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Concentrated Tea Blend Extract.
