Mixed Carotenoids and Retinol Oil
Mixed Carotenoids and Retinol oil is a powerful antioxidant mixture of vegetable derived Pro Vitamin A, Lycopene, Tetrinoin, Beta-carotene and Retinol. Vitamin A is found in two primary forms: Preformed vitamin A — retinol and retinyl esters — occurs exclusively in animal products, such as dairy, liver and fish, while provitamin A carotenoids are abundant in plant foods like fruits, vegetables and oils.
Most of your vitamin A intake comes from eating foods rich in beta-carotene and provitamin A carotenoids, which are potent antioxidants. Not only do these squelch free radicals that break down collagen (your skin’s support structure) and contribute to fine lines and saggy skin, they also lessen skin’s sensitivity to the sun, providing some natural protection against sun-induced redness and pigmentation.
Retinal, retinol and retinoic acid are important to cell production and growth. Vitamin A also stimulates fibroblasts—the cells responsible for developing tissue that keeps skin firm and healthy—in the deep layers of your skin. Because vitamin A and carotenoids play such a big role in cell and tissue growth, not getting enough can lead to weakened skin, causing problems ranging from dryness to wounds that heal more slowly.
Your skin is an important part of your immune system; think of it as your body’s bouncer—a first line of defense against bacteria, pollutants and infection. By promoting cell production, vitamin A helps strengthen this barrier, protecting your complexion from harmful irritants that attempt to attack the surface.
Topical vitamin A stimulates cell turnover which renews skin cells. This helps clear acne by dislodging impurities from pores and slowing excess oil production.
Beta carotene, which is converted to Vitamin A in the body, gives skin a golden glow.
It evens out skin tone and fades dark skin patches.
This strengthens the skin’s barrier which keeps out irritants and germs that attack scalp and cause infections. Therefore it is a great addition in hair care.
