A TRULY UNIQUE SUPPLEMENT
It’s one of the first food supplements in the world to offer benefits for the skin from a unique breed of non-genetically modified white tomatoes. Containing Crystal Tomato® Carotenoids which have been scientifically proven to produce many benefits for the skin such as healthier, more radiant complexion, the supplement is not only a safe and convenient way to beautiful skin but has also become a must-have for maintaining and protecting skin quality.
In a clinical trial* carried out at National Skin Centre of Singapore, a combination treatment of Crystal Tomato® supplement and Skin Clarity Cream showed significantly better results than the industry’s most well known whitening agents.
Crystal Tomato® Carotenoids offer invisible protection from environmental aggressors and have been proven scientifically to benefit the skin and improve the skin’s clarity in the following ways:
The first carotenoid precursors in the biosynthetic pathway of other carotenoids, unlike other carotenoids, they lack any visible colour and they absorb light in the ultra-violet range which make them ideal for offering protection against UVA/B damage from within. It has also been discovered that they help to reduce at least 4 causes of pigmentation.
INHIBIT MELANIN SYNTHESIS
Crystal Tomato® is targeted at controlling pigmentation by inhibiting melanin synthesis in order to brighten, lighten and whiten the complexion. Unlike orange or red carotenoids which change the skin’s colour to a tan or orange shade when consumed in large amounts, Crystal Tomato® Carotenoids do not contain any visible colour that will tint the skin.
REDUCTION OF EXISTING MELANIN SYNTHESIS
It has been scientifically proven that Crystal Tomato® Carotenoids can effectively reduce the melanin that is already present in the cells including those in dark acne scars, freckles, dark underarms and age spots.
Crystal Tomato® Carotenoids have the ability to absorb light within the UVA/B range and subsequently block free radicals from the UV rays. Hence, they act as anti-oxidants to protect against free radical damage by environmental aggressors.
Crystal Tomato® Carotenoids exhibit anti-inflammatory properties against wounds and UV damage to aid in wound healing.
Crystal Tomato® Carotenoids are the result of a decade of research and development. A unique breed of non-genetically modified white tomatoes were specially cultivated for use in the supplement.
As it is 100% natural food supplement, Crystal Tomato® is safe for daily use over a long term.
Many dietary carotenoids, both with and without pro-vitamin A activity, are found distributed throughout human tissues including the serum, plasma and skin. But compared to other carotenoids, Crystal Tomato® Carotenoids have the highest accumulation factor in the skin (Hata TR, et al. 2000. Non-invasive raman spectroscopic detection of carotenoids in human skin.. Journal of Investigative Dermatology.115(3):441-8).
This high distribution factor is an indication of the better stability of Crystal Tomato® Carotenoids in the skin. It further supports their advantageous ability to prevent and protect against in vivo oxidative damage.
INCREASED DNA PROTECTION
Tests have proven an increased protection of DNA and skin cells against oxidative and UV damage with an increased consumption of Crystal Tomato® Carotenoids.
To increase the efficacy of Crystal Tomato®, an amino acid L-Cysteine is included. Existing naturally in proteins of most living organisms, it is one of the few amino acids containing sulphur.
The sulphur allows L-Cysteine to bond in a special way to maintain the structure of proteins in the body and this helps in the formation of collagen, promoting healthy skin.
BOOSTING GLUTATHIONE PRODUCTION
L-Cysteine also helps to boost the liver’s production of Glutathione, commonly referred to as the body’s master anti-oxidant, to maintain skin health. Without Glutathione, cells will die at a faster rate, leading to quicker ageing.
Glutathione has the ability to lighten dark skin and pigmentation, including dark acne scars, freckles, dark underarms and age spots. It does this by altering the metabolic processes of melanocytes to turn dark pigmentation (eumelanin) into light pigmentation (pheomelanin).
THE GLUTATHIONE SUPPLEMENTS MYTH
Although Gluthathione is commonly found in oral supplements, it is not absorbed when taken orally and has no effect on the skin*. By including L-Cysteine, a natural precursor of Glutathione in Crystal Tomato®, the natural mechanisms in the body are activated to produce its own Glutathione to improve the appearance of the skin**.

JUST ONE A DAY
That’s all it takes. Crystal Tomato® may be taken regularly at any time of the day that suits your lifestyle. A box of Crystal Tomato® contains a month’s supply in 3 convenient blister strips of 10s each.
Crystal Tomato® has been scientifically proven to offer the following benefits:
- Serves as a natural sunscreen against UVA and UVB rays to protect against UV damage, photo-oxidation and sunburn.
- Acts as anti-oxidants to protect against free radical damage caused by environmental aggressors.
- Contains anti-inflammatory properties against wounds and UV damage.
- Inhibits melanin synthesis to prevent pigmentation spots from forming.
- Reduces the melanin present in the cells including dark acne scars, freckles, dark underarms and age spots for an anti-ageing and anti-photo ageing effect.
- Prevents DNA damage.
