Lycored’s new Lumenato harness the natural power of tomatoes for beauty

Lycored, a wellness company focusing on the ingestible skincare market, has launched a new wellness extract created to support the concept of “aging beautifully”. 

Lumenato is a calibrated extract of natural tomato nutrients and antioxidants optimised to work synergistically, and offer benefits for beauty and skin wellness. Designed for supplements, the company is confident to set it as its flagship ingredients, alongside Lycomato. 

Sourced from an exotic tomato breed, Lumenato is the result of Lycored’s “beyond natural” philosophy. It is produced using a CO2, solvent-free extraction process which keeps nutrients as close as ppossible to their natural form while maximising their potency and synergy. This mean it supports a solvent-free declaration for ingestible skincare applications. 

Rony Patishi-Chillim, CEO of Lycored, said, “Ingestible skincare is one of the most exciting categories in nutrition right now. There’s huge demand for natural, scientifically proven supplements that can help the skin age beautifully. Lumenato meets a range of market needs, and I’m delighted to welcome a new flagship product to our portfolio.” 

Lumenato is designed to allow natural phytonutrients help the skin age beautifully by maintaining its softness, resilience, and suppleness, and boosting its ability to maintain natural radiance and inner glow. Recent research by Lycored found that these are key goals for skincare users, with 77% of respondents indicating natural appearance is important to them, and 72% of the respondents seeking a healthy glow. 

Studies have linked carotenoids to physical attractiveness, believed to be the result of their antioxidative action. Lumenato contains the carotenoids phytofluene phytoene, and zeta-carotene in optimal concentrations for beauty parameters. 

Extensive testing in clinical settings has shown Lumenato to be bioavailable, and to 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 maintin natural collagen levels. 

Etgar Levy-Nissenbaum, senior vice-president, 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 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 and marketing, health, at Lycored, concluded, “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 their fields to ripen, the Lycored team realised that given the right tools, smooth, supple skin is possible.”
