INHIBIT MELANIN SYNTHESIS
Crystal Tomato® is targeted at controlling pigmentation by inhibiting melanin synthesis in order to brighten, lighten and whiten the complexion. And unlike orange or red carotenoids which change the skin’s colour to a tan or orange shade when consumed in large amounts, Crystal Tomato® Carotenoids do not contain any visible colour that will tint the skin.
REDUCTION OF EXISTING MELANIN
It has been scientifically proven that Crystal Tomato® Carotenoids can effectively reduce the melanin that is already present in the cells including those in dark acne scars, freckles, dark underarms and age spots.
Crystal Tomato® Carotenoids have the ability to absorb light within the UVA/B range and subsequently block free radicals from the UV rays. Hence, they act as anti-oxidants to protect against free radical damage by environmental aggressors.
