How it works

AstaReal® Astaxanthin reaches all layers of the skin to help support beauty-from-within. At the dermis, AstaReal® Astaxanthin helps support protein networks, including collagen and elastin to help maintain smoothness and elasticity. Studies using AstaReal® Astaxanthin have shown it protected collagen-producing skin cells in vitro against oxidative damage, so they can continue making new collagen.

At the surface layers of skin AstaReal® Astaxanthin helped reduce evaporation of water through the skin to improve hydration to promote skin radiance and glow.
