Botanic Innovations, producer of cold-pressed seed oils and nutri-powders adds Tomato Seed Oil to its product profile. Tomato Seed Oil has a bright reddish orange color and is rich in carotenoid antioxidants including lycopene, lutein and zeaxanthin. It is also a rich source of polyunsaturated fatty acids, phytosterols and dissolved minerals. The lipid antioxidants also include different forms of vitamin E. Studies have shown that both carotenoid and vitamin E antioxidants are vital components of the protective system against oxidative stress of human skin.
Mark Mueller, Founder and CTO of Botanic Innovations, expressed excitement about this new ingredient, “the carotenoid antioxidants in Tomato Seed Oil will make this the next hot ingredient to enhance skincare product performance”.
Tomato seed oil has special value as an ingredient in personal care, including for mature, aging skin; dry skin; irritable skin; brittle or damaged hair; acne and suncare. It has light viscosity, high nutrient values, and superior skin absorption. The oil has good stability and shelf life.
