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.1 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.1,2

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!3 So Cosmesis has created a topical lycopene formulation in an antioxidant cream format.

Research suggests that antioxidants work synergistically4 ... 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!4-7

Lycopene—a potent antioxidant carotene—supports your body’s natural defenses against the visible signs of UV radiation, oxidative stress, and premature aging by:

  • Coordinating skin cell behavior. Lycopene can improve the operation of "gap junctions,"8 unique channels that connect one cell to the next to facilitate communication and the passing of molecules and ions between cells.9,10
  • Promoting normal antioxidant activity. Lycopene is a potent scavenger of the free radicals that contribute to aging.4
  • Strengthening the skin’s collagen. Lycopene helps inhibit the activity of enzymes involved in destruction of collagen.11
  • Supporting your body’s normal protection of skin-cell DNA. Lycopene helps support the skin’s natural ability to ease inflammation, promote cell renewal, and aid in protecting DNA from the ravages of UVB exposure.7
