Sourced from a proprietary, exotic tomato breed, Lumenato is a new oleoresin of minimally 6% tomato carotenoids that follows Lycored’s “beyond natural” philosophy.
The ingredient is produced using CO2 in a solvent-free extraction process, which according to Lycored, keeps nutrients as close as possible to their natural form while maximizing their potency and synergy. In addition, the process supports a solvent-free label declaration for ingestible skin care products.

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.”
