DESCRIPTION

Tomato seed oil is rich in fatty acids, sterols, and antioxidants including Lycopene and Vitamin E. Lycopene is a powerful carotenoid that acts as a free radical scavenger and also offers sun protection for the Tomato fruit. Encouragingly some studies have also demonstrated a mild protective effect for the skin against UVB and UVB for the oil. It is light and and absorbs easily into the skin penetrating deeply and ideal for use in anti-aging, anti-wrinkle and restorative skin care products. A relative new-comer to the market, Tomato seed oil is a wonderful example of the sustainable use of a by-product that would otherwise go to waste.
