Crystal Tomato® offers invisible protection from environmental aggressors – with the help of the colourless carotenoids that have been proven scientifically to benefit the skin and improves skin clarity in the following ways:
The first carotenoid precursors in the biosynthetic pathway of other carotenoids, and unlike other carotenoids, they lack any visible colour and they absorb light in the ultra-violet range which makes them ideal for offering protection against UVA/B damage from within and improves skin clarity.
Discovered to reduce at least 4 causes of pigmentation.

INHIBIT MELANIN SYNTHESIS
Crystal Tomato® is targeted at controlling pigmentation by inhibiting melanin synthesis in order to brighten and lighten the complexion. And unlike orange or red carotenoids which change the skin’s colour to a tan or orange shade when consumed in large amounts, colourless carotenoids do not contain any visible colour that will tint the skin.
REDUCTION OF EXISTING MELANIN
It has been scientifically proven that colourless carotenoids can effectively reduce the melanin that is already present in the cells including those in dark acne scars, freckles, dark underarms and age spots.
Colourless carotenoids have the ability to absorb light within the UVA/B range and subsequently block free radicals from the UV rays. Hence, they act as anti-oxidants to protect against free radical damage by environmental aggressors therefore improves skin clarity.

Colourless carotenoids exhibit anti-inflammatory properties against wounds and UV damage to aid in wound healing.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHEN SHOULD ONE TAKE CRYSTAL TOMATO®? MORNING OR NIGHT, BEFORE OR AFTER FOOD?
Taking Crystal Tomato® is like eating any fresh tomatoes and can be taken anytime, day or night, before food or after food. It is recommended to take daily at a regular time (i.e. if a pill is taken in the morning on the 1st day, try to follow the same sequence the following days).
TOMATOES ARE KNOWN TO BE HIGH IN ACIDS. WOULD THE CONSUMPTION OF CRYSTAL TOMATO® CAUSE UNDESIRABLE REACTIONS FOR SUFFERERS FROM ACID REFLUX, GASTRIC ULCERS, HEARTBURN?
Acids are water-soluble. Crystal Tomato® Dietary Supplement is made from natural tomatoes that have been freeze dried into powder. No chemical is added. When the water is removed, the acids are also removed.
CRYSTAL TOMATO® SERVES AS A NATURAL SUNSCREEN AGAINST UVA/B. WOULD IT REPLACE THE USE OF TOPICAL SUNBLOCK?
It is necessary to continue with the use of topical sunblock. Crystal Tomato® provides some protection continuously for the whole body against UVA/B but it is not sufficient to completely protect against direct sun exposure.
CRYSTAL TOMATO® IS ANTI-AGEING – HOW DOES IT PREVENT AGEING?
All carotenoids are excellent anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant. They prevent damages caused by free radicals that lead to premature ageing. By absorbing UV, Crystal Tomato® Carotenoids also prevent the formation of the free radicals.
WHY IS L-CYSTEINE, ANOTHER ACTIVE INGREDIENT IN CRYSTAL TOMATO® ADDED?
L-Cysteine has been added to the formula as it transforms into glutathione in our body. Glutathione converts dark brown melanin to pink melanin. However, glutathione – taken either orally or applied topically – is not absorbed by the body. Only L-Cysteine transformed glutathione will be absorbed.
ARE THERE ANY SCIENTIFIC DATA TO PROVE THAT CRYSTAL TOMATO® CAROTENOIDS TAKEN ORALLY LIGHTENS / WHITENS SKIN?
Yes, increasing the skin UV protection will lead to a reduction in darkening as a result of sun exposure. In a recent study it was proven that there is also a significant lightening of the skin color.
ARE THERE ANY CLINICAL TRIAL RESULTS TO SHOW UV PROTECTION OF THE SKIN FROM ORAL USE OF CRYSTAL TOMATO® CAROTENOIDS?
Yes, in clinical studies it was found that oral intake of Crystal Tomato® Carotenoids does protect the skin from UV rays. In a recent study, the natural SPF of the skin was increased by as much as 20%.
HOW SAFE IS CRYSTAL TOMATO®?
Crystal Tomato® supplement is as safe to consume as a tomato. It is made from a rare breed of 100% natural, non-GMO tomato.
HOW LONG DOES ONE CONTINUE TAKING CRYSTAL TOMATO® AND WHAT WILL HAPPEN WHEN ONE STOPS CONSUMING IT? WILL THE COLOR OF THE SKIN DARKEN AND THE CONDITION OF THE SKIN WORSEN?
As Crystal Tomato® is a Natural Food, it can be consumed continuously. Like with any food or other safe product, the results are reversible – when one stops consuming the supplement, the skin will progressively revert to its original form. It will not worsen but it will lose the benefits derived from consuming this supplement.
CAN WOMEN PREPARING FOR PREGNANCY, PREGNANT WOMEN & BREAST FEEDING MOTHERS, CONSUME CRYSTAL TOMATO®?
Crystal Tomato® being a Natural Food is suitable and safe for all – with the exception of people who are allergic to tomatoes or have been advised by their physicians not to take tomatoes for any reason.

Yes. Crystal Tomato® Dietary Supplement is suitable for Vegetarians as well as for Vegans.
WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS FROM TAKING CRYSTAL TOMATO®?
Crystal Tomato® Dietary Supplement is a Natural Food consisting of natural tomatoes and L-cysteine (amino acids present in our body) which is a US FDA approved food additive.
There are no known side effects unless one is allergic to tomatoes.
HOW MUCH AND HOW LONG DOES ONE HAVE TO TAKE THIS SUPPLEMENT TO GET THE BENEFITS?
Recommended intake for Crystal Tomato® is just One Caplet A Day but there is no harm in taking more. In view that the skin is a large organ and the benefits are delivered ‘head to toe’, 2 to 3 months for visible radiance and lightening effects should be expected.
However, many patients have provided feedback that benefits of Radiance and Lightening were visible from as soon as just 3 weeks of 1-a-day consumption dosage.
WOULD CONSUMING REGULAR COLORED CAROTENOIDS (I.E. BETACAROTENE/LYCOPENE), GIVE THE SAME LIGHTENING EFFECT AS CONSUMING CRYSTAL TOMATO®?
Consuming colored carotenoids in large amount will affect the color of the skin. In particular, beta carotene taken in large amount over a long period would give skin an orange tint. Consuming regular tomatoes also do not protect against UV and do not have skin whitening functions as they only contain colored carotenoids.
WHAT ARE THE OTHER BENEFITS OF CRYSTAL TOMATO®?
Crystal Tomato® Carotenoids absorb UV and protect the skin from sun exposure whilst reducing existing pigmentation. They also inhibit the formation of additional melanin. They are a Super Anti-Oxidant and, as such, prolong cell DNA longevity.
IS CRYSTAL TOMATO® CULTIVATED SPECIFICALLY FOR ITS SKIN LIGHTENING PROPERTIES?
Yes. Crystal Tomato® corresponds to a special varietal of tomato which is cultivated specifically for this purpose only. Such type of tomato does not exist anywhere else.

There are many Carotenoids and they are mainly colored. The more commonly known ones are Beta Carotene (orange colored, high presence in carrots) and Lycopene (bright red colored, high presence in common tomatoes).
Crystal Tomato® Carotenoids are without colour and thus absorb UV: color reflects absorption of visible light; colorless substances do not absorb in the visible spectrum, they absorb at lower wavelength (i.e. UV) or higher wavelength (i.e. Infra-Red or IR). Crystal Tomato® Carotenoids are UV absorbers.
