Lutein as an active ingredient for the skin care industry
Researchers have shown lutein is also deposited throughout human skin, delivering multi-faceted activity, including antioxidant benefits, to skin cells. Research suggests 10 mg of lutein a day may play a role in maintaining healthy skin.
Study participants taking 10 mg of an oral supplement containing FloraGLO Lutein daily for 12 weeks showed measurable increases in skin hydration and skin elasticity, and a decrease in skin lipid peroxidation. Lipids are oily components within the skin critical to healthy skin appearance. Furthermore, they provide a barrier function that slows the loss of moisture in the skin. Lutein used in a topical preparation applied to the skin also showed significant improvements in these categories, and when combined with oral lutein supplements, generated even greater results than oral or topical lutein separately.
