Collagen and Carotenoids™: Perfect partners
This is a love story. It’s about two of the star ingredients
in the ingestible skincare market and how they turned
out to be perfect for each other.
The first is collagen. Rising consumer awareness of its
benefits for elasticity, wrinkle reduction and moisture
has been a recent success story in the beauty and
skin wellness space. In 2013, collagen was estimated
to account for 1% of the U.S. beauty-from-within
supplements market. By 2018, that figure had risen to 9%.
The second are carotenoids, which can improve the skin’s
ability to balance response to oxidative stress and DNA
damage, as well as brining out is natural color. The great
news is that carotenoid products – such as Lycoderm™,
Lycored’s blend of tomato phytonutrients and rosemary
leaf – are a perfect partner for collagen.
