Astaxanthin for healthy ageing

Our skin is under constant attack from free radicals produced by UV rays, pollution, stress, and poor nutrition. The damage caused by free radicals is a major cause of skin ageing and problems such as wrinkles and age spots. This free radical damage affects all layers of the skin, from the visible surface to the delicate deep layers where new skin is formed. Astaxanthin is known and loved for its positive healthy ageing effects.

Astaxanthin is a natural occurring pigment, known for the reddish pink colour it gives to marine organisms such as crabs, shrimp and salmon. It is often called the King of Carotenoids because of its powerful antioxidant potency. Astaxanthin also possesses a unique molecular structure that spans the cell membranes hydrophilic and hydrophobic layers, attracting and quenching free radicals.

Natural algae astaxanthin is powerful antioxidant with strong anti-inflammatory effects. Its unique molecular structure allows it to reside in the cell membrane and to protect the inside and outside of cells from free radical attack. Research shows that astaxanthin taken as an oral supplement is active in each of the skin’s layers, provides protection from UV damage, shrinks wrinkles, and makes age spots smaller. Astaxanthin provides protection from ageing in all skin layers. Astaxanthin improves the supply of nutrients to skin tissues in hypodermis. It fights lines and wrinkles, and boosts fibroblasts and collagen integrity against UV-induced damage in skin. Astaxanthin quenches overproduction and oxidation of melanin in epidermis. In stratum corneum, it fights skin dryness and skin roughness.

Astaxanthin is a unique and very powerful ingredient—to use it internally and externally at the same time is extremely effective combination that guarantees multi-action effect on the skin and other systems of the human body. This combination guarantees control of topical and underlying causes of skin aging and skin problems. Pure astaxanthin from microalgae Haematococcus pluvialis. Harvested from a controlled closed microalgae cultivation system—a modular array of tubular glass photo-bioreactors. The selected system eliminates the risk of foreign objects, agricultural residue and microbial contamination and it is all energized by natural sunlight.

The skin is an extremely complex organ, consisting of multiple layers that each have unique and important function. For a product to truly improve the skin’s health and beauty, it must provide protection and support to all layers of the skin. In 2016, followed by the industry innovations in nutritional, medical and beauty fields, LYL (love your life) created LYL ASTAXANthin skin care range.
