Let us illuminate you.
Let's get glowing.
We're frequently told to "love the skin we're in," but how often do we really practice that? Over the years, we've come to realize that maintaining skin health and wellness is a lifelong journey that begins on the inside, the home of our "inner glow." We created Lycoderm™, our proprietary carotenoid blend, with that notion in mind. The Mediterranean diet-inspired blend of tomato extract and rosemary leaf extract in Lycoderm is carefully calibrated to maximize the synergy of the ingredients. The optimal concentrations of lycopene, phytoene, phytofluene, and carnosic acid in our proprietary blend help nourish body and skin. The combination of these carotenoids and nutrients supports skin health and appearance, helps balance our skin’s response to environmental stress, and supports the maintenance of natural collagen.
Here it is in action.

The ingredients in Lycoderm were chosen specifically for the synergistic properties they display when combined. Our patented skin-grade tomato nutrient complex is standardized to preserve and enhance the natural efficacy of nutrients like lycopene, phytoene, and phytofluene, as well as Vitamins A and E that possess skin wellness benefits. Proven safe and effective, our blend is designed to complement a healthy skincare routine. It has been shown to aid our skin’s natural resilience to external stressors, support its ability to cope with the aging effects of sun exposure,* and increase its overall smoothness, density, and thickness. Check out the results of some of our studies.
Lycopene, phytoene, and phytofluene can help balance skin’s responses to environmental stresses and promote a healthier relationship with the sun.*
Carotenoids are antioxidants capable of hindering the effects of reactive oxygen species (ROS).1 They accumulate in the skin, providing a “reservoir of goodness” that promotes skin wellness and helps maintain skin resilience in the context of environmental stress. For example, carotenoids may help balance our skin’s natural ability to manage sun-induced processes.2,3 The combination of phytonutrients in our Tomato Nutrient Complex—lycopene, phytoene, and phytofluene—work together to maximize skin health and wellness benefits. This combination has been shown to lessen erythema intensity following controlled UV light exposure in healthy volunteers.2 The nourishing effect exhibited by the phytonutrient combination was more pronounced compared to lycopene as a standalone (as shown in Figure 1).2 Moreover, 12-week supplementation with Tomato Nutrient Complex was shown to control the mRNA levels of specific skin biomarkers such as MMP-1, a key enzyme involved in collagen degradation.3
A combination of natural phytonutrients from tomato and rosemary helps nourish skin with valuable antioxidants that can contribute to overall skin wellness over time.
Following 12 weeks of supplementation, an antioxidant supplement with proprietary Tomato Nutrient Complex was shown to help improve skin texture parameters such as skin density, thickness, and smoothness (as seen below).4 An observational study also revealed that higher cutaneous concentrations of lycopene were correlated to lower levels of skin roughness.5
The balancing effect of the tomato carotenoids increases when it is combined with other synergistic nutrients and antioxidants. In particular, the strong antioxidant carnosic acid from rosemary extract was shown to add another layer of synergy and enhance protective intracellular mechanisms related to skin wellness and the control of collagen degrading enzymes.
Our scientifically backed formulations are designed to not only help balance specific cellular processes in the skin, but to help improve its overall wellness. When used as part of a healthy skincare routine, our naturally derived supplements like Lycoderm will leave your skin looking and feeling great.
An antioxidant mixture containing our proprietary Tomato Nutrient Complex helps improve skin texture.
Lycopene levels in the skin correlate with improved texture and reduced roughness.5 During a twelve-week study measuring the density, thickness, and smoothness of skin, statistically significant improvements were found in subjects who received the antioxidant supplement as opposed to a placebo.6
