Doesn’t seem like you’re windburned, sunburned skin is almost as unappealing as when you fry out by the pool in the summer? Even if you’re using sunscreen — which you probably aren’t — it’s often not enough. Wouldn’t it be great to take a gel-cap, Jetsons-style? Well, that day has come! I was happy to be hosted to experience Lyc-O-Derm™. It will be available through NovaHue.
You take one tiny, easy to swallow gel-cap a day with food, that’s it. It contains lycopene, which is a natural nutritional compound found in cooked tomatoes. I was just reading an article by Michael Pollan how it wasn’t until humans cooked their food that they got the nutrition to live and grow as a society (why the “Paleo Diet” gets it wrong.)
This is what they say about Lyc-O-Derm™:
The good news is that Lyc-O-Derm™, produced by Lycored, is a supplement that helps to support skin health and appearance which tackles skin damage from the inside out. Which means you can take Lyc-O-Derm™ all year round and it will enhance the effects of sunscreens and save our skin from wrinkles, pre-mature aging, and even some skin cancers caused by UV rays!
Lyc-O-Derm™ contains a dermal-optimized tomato extract, lycopene plus appropriate levels of phytoene and phytofluene, and rosemary extract, polyphenol component provided through our standardized carnosic acid. Lyc-O-Mato®, produced by LycoRed technology, is an antioxidant complex containing lycopene, phytoene, phytofluene and other powerful carotenoids – all extracted from tomatoes. Phytofluene protects against UVA damage, while phytoene protects against UVB damage. Ripe, non-GMO tomatoes have always been at the heart of LycoRed as they discovered that the tomato pulp has the lowest trace agrochemical content and the highest concentration of uncompromised lycopene. This finding led to their proprietary extraction process which allows LycoRed to remove the pulp without disrupting the natural distribution of carotenoids and nutrients which are so vital to our skin’s health. The result is a tomato-derived product (now on the market) safe for consumption and packed with powerful nutrition to keep your skin wrinkle-free and protected from damaging UV rays.
Studied Benefits Include:

Promote healthy dermal recovery after day-to-day sun exposure
Help maintain healthy skin texture and appearance
All ingredients hold GRAS status
Over the past decade, a growing base of research has found that orally- consumed lycopene appears to support normal recovery and barrier function in dermal cells. Elevated lycopene plasma levels have been found to support collagen health, the overall wellness of skin cells, and healthy skin texture.*
Dermal-optimized Tomato Extract – Lycopene plus appropriate levels of phytoene and phytofluene*
Rosemary Extract – Polyphenol component provided through our standardized carnosic acid*
Lycopene demonstrates its dermal effects best when consumed alongside all synergistic components of the complete tomato extract—especially phytoene and phytofluene. That’s why LycoRed uses a proprietary tomato extract, rather than isolated lycopene only. In this form, lycopene and other tomato carotenoids appear to encourage healthy dermal cell recovery and maintenance.*
Carotenoids, such as lycopene, are preferentially accumulated and metabolized in the skin. The body uses these nutrients to support the skin’s barrier function. Human studies have confirmed this effect and have demonstrated a stronger synergistic result when tomato extract is combined with carnosic acid.*
