What is Tomato Extract?
The active ingredient of tomato extract is lycopene, which is a member of the carotenoid family of chemical substances and it is similar to other carotenoids, which is a natural fat-soluble pigment (red, in the case of lycopene) found in certain plants and microorganisms, where it could serve as an accessory light-gathering pigment and protect these organisms against the toxic effects of oxygen and light. Lycopene may also protect humans against certain disorders, such as prostate cancer and perhaps some other cancers and coronary heart disease.
In a 12-week single blind, randomized clinical trial, tomato extract was found to protect the skin from UV-induced erythema. This positive effect was attributed to the high levels of lycopene that neutralize free radicals, preventing them from damaging cells and causing photoaging. Tomato extract also has anti-inflammatory properties, making it effective in treating acne and tightening pores.
Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are enzymes that can degrade the extracellular matrix which can cause skin aging by breaking down collagen. Green Tomato extract suppresses the expression and activity of MMPs in dermal fibroblasts (manufacturer of collagen). This helps to maintain collagen levels in the skin and prevent the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
