Lycrored, an international wellness company focused on ingestible skincare solutions, has highlighted peer-reviews research that shows supplementation of Lycoderm has skin care benefits.

Lycoderm is a cartenoid-rich tomato nutrient complex, and the research published in the Skin Pharmacology and Physiology journal shows that the supplement can provide nourishment of body and skin, while also helping to balance the skin’s response to UV rays.

The team at Lycored says that this latest research shows how oral supplementation of Lycoderm can enhance skin wellness at the cellular level by blending standardized levels of tomato phytonutrients and carnosic acid from rosemary extract.

The research shows that the supplement can help skin cells to better cope with environmental challenges, ensuring the skin is visibly less red because of increased resilience to UV rays.

The study showed how 12 weeks of supplementation can help UV-exposed skin to appear calmer on both a molecular and physiological level.

Likewise, the study also showed internal benefits that included reduced secretion of inflammatory mediators and that this balance was reflected externally by a reduction in skin redness.

Beauty from within

The concept of beauty supplements is not new, but it has taken consumers some time to take to it because topical products are deemed to be more immediate.

“This study supports the notion that true beauty starts from within,”​ said Dr. Karin Hermoni, PhD, Head of Science & Nutrition at Lycored.

“All people should strive for a healthier relationship with the sun and be mindful of their exposure to UV. Complementing traditional topical skin care and sun care with proper nourishment of body and skin can help balance our skin’s response to environmental challenges and build a better foundation for beautiful skin and long term skin wellness.”

The study

The study was a double-blind randomized placebo-controlled multicenter study whereby Lycoderm was analyzed to show if it can protect from UV-induced redness, in the form of erythema formation.

One hundred and forty-nine healthy volunteers were selected and placed in two treatment groups, then subject to a five week wash-out face, followed by a 12-week supplementation phase and subjected to controlled local UV radiation.

The subjects were then given chromametry analysis to evaluate erythema intensity, with the results proving that Lycoderm helps to boost skin resilience to erythema, and helping to reduce the local inflammatory process in the skin.
