The science behind Lumenato, natural tomato for skin health
LumenatoTM is a carefully calibrated extract of natural tomato nutrients and antioxidants optimized to work synergistically and offer proven benefits for beauty and skin health and skincare.
Extensive testing in clinical settings has shown Lumenato to be bioavailable and to significantly elevate levels of the active phytonutrients. Studies have demonstrated that it can support the skin’s natural ability to calm the response to pro-inflammatory cytokines and maintain natural collagen levels.
Etgar Levy-Nissenbaum, SVP, Global R&D at Lycored, said: “Lumenato is inspired by Lycored’s relationship with nature – in particular the humble tomato – which inspires everything we do. But it’s also the result of years of research and testing, as well as a vertically integrated production process, which means we can offer a product customers can trust.”
Karin Hermoni, Head of Science, Health, at Lycored, said: “As we grow older, our skin health requires greater upkeep to maintain its softness, radiance and resilience. Lumenato harnesses the natural power of the tomato to support skin from the inside out and help us age beautifully.”
Zev Ziegler, Head of Global Brand & Marketing, Health, at Lycored added “It was the outside of our hero fruit, the tomato, that truly clarified our mission to #rethinkbeautiful. Watching the sun gently coax the tomatoes in our fields to ripen, the Lycored team realized that given the right tools, smooth, supple skin is possible.”
Lumenato is currently patent pending. Ideal for ingestible skincare supplements it is plant-based, vegetarian, allergen free, gluten free, Kosher and Halal, and Non-GMO Project-Verified.
