Description of Cosmesis Lycopene Cream, 1 oz, Life Extension
Life Extension Lycopene Cream
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. 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.
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!
Cosmesis has created a topical lycopene formulation in an antioxidant cream format. Applied directly to the delicate tissue of the face, Cosmesis Lycopene Cream - with its unique combination of lycopene and extracts of green, red, and white tea - provides targeted support against the visible effects of UV radiation and oxidative stress.
Research suggests that antioxidants work synergistically, so Cosmesis has incorporated a concentrated tea blend extract, containing polyphenol-rich components of red, green, and white tea. Because of this, the protective effects of both lycopene and the tea extract bioactives can 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.
Lycopene - a potent antioxidant carotene - supports your body's natural defenses against the visible signs of UV radiation, oxidative stress, and premature aging.
