PhytoflORAL® is an award-winning natural ingredient and the prime element behind LUCENT’s lightening and brightening power.
Extracted from specially cultivated non-genetically modified tomatoes through a patented process, PhytoflORAL® delivers to the skin two valuable colourless carotenoids (CLCs) – phytoene and phytofluene. CLCs are extremely nutrient-rich with strong whitening and photo-protecting ability.
- Skin Lightening and Brightening effect
- Protects DNA Damage from Oxidative Stress
- Prevent and reduce skin pigmentation – overall Anti-Aging effect
- Support Sun Protection
- Protection & Boost of Biomolecules
- Clinically Proven to offer complete Skinhealth benefits
CoQ10 is a naturally-occurring substance found in the body that’s similar to a vitamin. It is an important antioxidant which helps to neutralise free radical damages, the main cause of aging, induced by UVB ray absorption and other environmental stressors such as pollution and toxins. It helps repair skin damage, combats wrinkles and boosts collagen production for a more youthful appearance, while regenerating Vitamin E, another important antioxidant and enhances skin‘s natural immunity. It also sustains muscle health and improves energy levels.
- Help boost skin repair, regeneration & cell activity
- Stimulating collagen and elastin production
- Protects skin from aging by neutralizing harmful free radicals
- Reducing Sun’s UV Damage to improve skin roughness & fine wrinkles
Supports the synthesis of the powerful and yet stable naturally occurring antioxidant, Glutathione which slows down the natural process of ageing by eliminating toxins while protecting cells from free radicals. Direct oral Glutathione supplementation is proven ineffective at increasing cellular Glutathione levels. L-Cysteine synthesizes new protein tissues; collagen for skin elasticity for better skin texture. It also helps lighten the skin by defending against sun damage, produces Keratin for healthier and stronger nails & hair and protects your body against oxidative stress. L-Cysteine reduces inflammatory reactions in the body thereby helping to promote healing and bolster the immune system.
- Boosts your body's glutathione levels including the immune system
- Aids collagen production and skin elasticity
- Slows down ageing by eliminating toxins while protecting cells from free radicals
- Promotes Healthier & Stronger Hair & Nails
Vitamin C promotes younger, clearer looking skin and is popularly known as a vital nutrient for skin health. It is needed by the body to form the structural protein collagen which firms the skin and supports epidermal strength. Vitamin C also has potent antioxidant properties, shielding the skin from sun damage and oxidative stress by neutralising free radicals activated by sun exposure and other environmental pollutants. Vitamin C also encourages healing and soothes irritated, inflamed skin as well as helping to fade pigmentation.
- Promotes collagen synthesis for healthier skin & support epidermal strength
- Has Antioxidants to shield skin from Sun Damage & reduce Pigmentation
- Protects & Neutralize Free Radicals from Environmental Pollutants
- Promotes the healing of scar tissue and fractures
INSIDE THE AWARD WINNING FORMULAExtracted from natural freeze-dried tomato powder from specially cultivated non genetically modified tomato species, PhytoflORAL®’s key components are its two rich colourless carotenoids (CLCs) – phytoene and phytofluene, along with its natural ζ-Carotene element. PhytoflORAL® is clinically proven in providing protection against UV damage, free radical DNA damage and undesired skin pigmentation, hence slowing down skin aging and photo aging and contributes to the whitening and lightening of skin. Phytoene and phytofluene, the first carotenoid precursors in the biosynthetic pathway of other carotenoids, are colorless and have the ability to absorb light in the UV range only. These colourless carotenoids are highly effective in providing protection against UV and oxidative damages, which is known to lead to pre‐mature aging and other skin damages. These elements are also able to control pigmentation by inhibition of melanin synthesis, which brightens and lightens the skin. They also present abilities of inflammation reduction, anti-oxidation and UVA/UVB protection that further enhance skin lightening effects.
BIOAVAILABILITY AND TISSUE DISTRIBUTION OF PHYTOENE AND PHYTOFLUENE
Many dietary carotenoids, both with and without pro‐vitamin A activity, are found in most human tissues, including in the serum, plasma and skin. However, the distribution of carotenoids throughout the body is usually not uniformed. Phytoene and phytofluene, compared to other carotenoids, have the highest accumulation factor in the skin, lungs, plasma and lymphocytes, indicating a high distribution factor and better stability. These elements also clinically proven to have the ability to prevent and protect against oxidation damage in vivo. Furthermore, it was also observed that an increased protection of DNA and skin cells against oxidative and UV damage was found with increased consumption of phytoene and phytofluene.Improved protection against oxidation damage in vivo and increased protection of DNA and skin cells against oxidative and UV damage were observed with increased consumption of phytoene and phytofluene.
PHOTO PROTECTION & ANTI-AGING – A CLINICAL STUDY
A clinical study was done on PhytoflORAL® to:Evaluate skin photo-protection due to dietary consumption of PhytoflORAL®
Evaluate the effect of PhytoflORAL® on skin quality
Evaluate the efficacy and characteristics of PhytoflORAL®
Evaluate product safety
PhytoflORAL® shown a significant photoprotective effect after 84 days of product use, highlighted by a significant increase of the Minimum Erythemal Dose (MED) after UV exposure.
PhytoflORAL® induced an improvement of skin quality after 42 and 84 days of use.
Clinical scoring by dermatologists show a significant improvement in skin dryness, roughness, suppleness, evenness and texture with:
A decrease of skin dryness
A decrease of skin roughness
An increase of skin suppleness
More uniform skin complexion
Improvement of skin texture
