Colourless Carotenoids

Anti-ageing benefits in the form of a capsule per day

There is one simple fact that separates Colourless Carotenoids from other skin whitening products on the market today: Colourless Carotenoids are the most efficient skin-whitening ingredients in the world today. The ingredients are scientifically proven to:

  • Act as a natural sunscreen
  • Inhibit melanin synthesis
  • Reduces melanin in the cells
  • Play a role as antioxidants in the skin

What does this mean to me?

In a nutshell this means that if you are worried about premature ageing or are experiencing pigmentation problems, that we may have found an easy, pain-free solution to your problem. Ingestion of Colourless Carotenoids is proven to:

  • Protect your skin from UV damage and Photo-Oxidation
  • Prevent pigmentation spots
  • Reduce dark pigmentation spots (Acne scars, freckles, ages spots etc.)

Where is the science?

According to free radical theory on ageing, we age because our cells, over time and with environmental factors, are damaged by free radicals. Combine free radical damage with UV damage and the degradation of our skin cells leads to premature ageing. If we prevent photo-oxidation damage and protect our cells from inflammation causes by UV damage we therefore will delay premature ageing.

Colourless Carotenoids lack visible colour due to their molecular structure, but this allows them to absorb both large spectra in both the UVA and UVB ranges. This means the correct ingredients can effectively protect your skin by inhibiting UV absorption and minimising photo-oxidation. It is important to note that dietary colourless carotenoids are accumulated in the skin. The accumulation of these colourless carotenoids can potentially protect the skin by several mechanisms: acting as UV absorbers, as antioxidants, as anti-inflammatory.

Similarly by minimising the amount of UV absorption in the skin Colourless Carotenoids halt melanin production in the skin. Melanin is the skins primary determinant of colour and is the cause of pigmentation, freckles and age spots. By reducing UV absorption we therefore reduce pigmentation issues too.

What about pigmentation that already exists?

Crystal Tomato, recently introduced by Dr Clark at SAI has taken the use of Colourless Carotenoids to the next level. They have introduced to the Colourless Carotenoid mix an ingredient called L-Cysteine. This ingredient activates production of glutathione to assist lightening of dark pigmentation.

This makes for an ideal mix of reversing pigmentation problems while preventing skin ageing and further pigmentation damage.

What is Crystal Tomato?


Crystal Tomato is a food supplement combining a unique Colourless Carotenoid from a naturally colourless tomato powder and L-cysteine. The main benefit of the product is skin whitening but as discussed prevention of the formation of free radicals is an added bonus to prevent premature ageing. The product is available in boxes of 30 capsules and the recommended dosage is one caplet a day.
