What is Pearl Tomato®?

Pearl Tomato® is a proprietary tomato extract powder, uniquely rich in multi-functional colorless carotenoids, sourced from specially selected non-GMO tomato fruit. This ingredient can be used in the food and beauty industry, creating a “beauty from within” concept.

About Pearl Tomato®

There are many different carotenoids, and all are different colors. The more commonly known carotenoids are Beta Carotene (found in carrots) and Lycopene (found in tomatoes). White tomatoes are without color but still have carotenoids. While colorless, the ingredient does not absorb the visible light spectrum, instead, it absorbs at a lower or higher wavelength (UV or Infrared).

Carotenoids, naturally occurring pigments in many fruits and vegetables, offer significant skin benefits due to their antioxidant properties. They protect against UV radiation, reduce sunburn and premature aging risks, and scavenge free radicals to prevent collagen breakdown, minimizing wrinkles and fine lines. Carotenoids like beta-carotene and lycopene enhance skin radiance and color for a healthy glow. They also strengthen the immune system and have anti-inflammatory properties, aiding in the management of skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, and acne.
