FloraGLO® Lutein For skin Health

Healthy skin is the foundation for beautiful skin. With consumers' interest in dietary supplements that enhance healthy skin, FloraGLO® Lutein is the ideal choice for “beauty from within” products.

FloraGLO Lutein is scientifically proven to be a valuable ingredient in maintaining the health of our skin by serving as an antioxidant and absorber of high-energy wavelengths of visible light. Unlike UV light that only penetrates the surface layers of skin, blue light penetrates the entire depth of our skin. When blue light is absorbed by our skin, it can form free radicals that attack skin-cell tissue and cause damage. FloraGLO Lutein provides 25 years of science in the market and is the world’s most researched lutein brand. For supplement manufacturers looking for a trusted source of lutein, FloraGLO Lutein is the obvious choice.

From Flower to Formula

Kemin uses only the best growing and harvesting practices to cultivate its elite dietary ingredients. Our proprietary lutein manufacturing process has been developed and refined over the last 25 years.

Our marigold flowers are grown in India, meticulously handpicked, and extracted resulting in marigold oleoresin which is shipped to Kemin headquarters in Des Moines, Iowa where it is further processed into unesterified (free) FloraGLO Lutein. Each step of the manufacturing process is carefully controlled to ensure a quality naturally-sourced lutein.
