Skin that shines begins within

At Lycored and Catalent, we’re going beyond “skin deep” and reimagining all the things beauty can be, starting with what’s inside. We’re breaking beauty out of its proverbial box, changing the conversation and learning more and more everyday about the role our star skin nutrient complex, Lycoderm Vegicaps® Softgel plays in maintaining healthy skin. It’s a story that must be told.

Research in touch with our roots.

Read this chapter. Section 2/11

The Lycored skincare story begins in 1995 with a single source of natural inspiration: the tomato.

We created Lycoderm™ because we believe healthy skin starts on the inside. Yet, it was the outside of our hero fruit that truly clarified our mission. As we watched the sun gently coax the tomatoes in our fields to ripen, we realized that given the right tools, smooth, supple skin is possible.

Section 2/11

Years of trial and error eventually leads to Lycoderm and our ingestible beauty testing process:

When the final exciting combination of seven key carotenoids and nutrients for Lycoderm was identified, we refined and refined again, conducting trial after trial to achieve an optimal formulation. Take phytoene and phytofluene for example, which absorb UV radiation and are very difficult to see. We painstakingly created innovative detection methods that helped reveal, extract, and standardize these carotenoids to ensure the highest quality standards in Lycoderm.

The Lycoderm finished-composition study design begins

2017

Our study conducted by the Leibniz Research Institute for Environmental Medicine, earns a nomination in the University Research Category at the 2017 NutraIngredients Awards, establishes our wellness extract study as a star in the skincare research arena and shows that lycopene-rich tomato nutrient complex can balance the skin’s response to UV-induced upregulation of molecular markers.

2018 Section 3/11

Standardized tomato
extract circulation study

2018

This placebo-controlled study showed that our standardized tomato extract decreased anti-inflammatory markers and supported healthy blood flow as measured by reactive hyperemia peripheral arterial tonometry. This study helped us appreciate that circulation and nutrient delivery are systemically important to maintaining vital looking skin.

2019 Section 3/11

Tomato Phytonutrients Balance UV Response: Results from a Double-Blind, Randomized, Placebo-Controlled Study

2019

Our study design deliberately included physiological parameters to gain new insights into the cellular mechanism. One hundred and forty-five healthy men and women supplemented for 12 weeks with softgels containing either Lycoderm™ or a placebo. Erythema (redness) intensity was measured following UV exposure and Lycoderm was shown to significantly decrease erythema and inflammation from UV light.

2020 Section 3/11

Effect of oral supplement ‘Lycopene’ on reducing the signs of skin ageing

2020

We continue to grow our beauty perspective and insights with the publication of our double blind, placebo controlled clinical study that evaluated the efficacy of Lycoderm to improve skin maintenance and appearance in 60 healthy female subjects.

We are proud to mark this latest publication by unveiling new before and after photos, clinical assessment, instrumental evaluation, and results you can literally see.

Our recipe for radiance

Skin is the body’s largest organ. As we grow older, it requires more upkeep to maintain its radiance and resilience. Carotenoids works hard on several levels from the inside out to keep skin looking and feeling healthy and attractive. From inner radiance to outward glow, Lycoderm Vegicaps® Softgel is designed to shine.

More than Meets the Eye

Hydration
In the double-blind, placebo-controlled subjective evaluation of 60 participants supplementing with Lycoderm, 90% mentioned they noticed decreased skin dryness.

Nourishment
Evaluation using a biophotonic scanner found that carotenoid levels increased steadily and significantly in the group treated with Lycoderm, creating a “reservoir of goodness” in the skin, while the placebo group did not exhibit any significant change over the course of the study.

Fortification
Carotenoid levels in our bodies can measurably increase within just 24 hours after supplementation. But while the full benefits of carotenoid nourishment take time to cultivate, there are some effects—like a healthy glow—that can be seen after just a few weeks. In our bioavailability studies of 150+ subjects, we found that supplementation with Lycoderm raised plasma carotenoid levels in just two weeks.

What goes around comes in handy

When our skin is properly nourished, it's easier to see how a healthy blood flow is reflected in the way we look. Healthy circulation is also key to nutrient delivery, maintaining a healthy-looking skin, and contributing to our overall vitality.

Looking good and feeling vine.

As we age, our skin becomes more susceptible to the effects of environmental stress. Carotenoids like lycopene, lutein, and beta-carotene used in conjunction with a comprehensive beauty regime work hard from the inside out to keep skin looking and feeling healthy.

But it’s inner radiance where Lycoderm Vegicaps® Softgel really shines. By building up a natural reservoir of free radical-fighting phytonutrients in our skin, we can ensure we’re equipped to take in the outside world throughout the years.

Put yourself out there.

When we’re young, we may not immediately notice the effects of these stresses, but they can still cause long-term damage if not addressed. Thankfully, Lycoderm helps ease the toll of environmental stresses by aiding in skin resilience.

Keep your skin in the game.

By building up a “reservoir of goodness” in our skin that’s there when you need it, Lycoderm helps protect skin while boosting texture and appearance from the inside out. By focusing on our skin and nutrition at an early age, we can all begin a beautiful journey towards lifelong skin health.
