Organic food supplements:which ingredients?

Dunaliella salina

Under this somewhat barbaric name hides quite simply a marine micro-algae from the warm seas. This seaweed synthesizes antioxidants to protect itself from intense solar radiation in the marine environment and therefore helps to accelerate the tanning of the skin.

Carrot powder

Unsurprisingly, it provides beta-carotene and a precursor of vitamin A, which helps maintain skin radiance. Carotenoids will give you the coveted “healthy glow effect” touch.

Tomato extract

Composed of pigments such as lycopene, a powerful antioxidant, and also contains carotenes, providing the same precursor benefits of vitamin A as carrot powder:they will be transformed into vitamin A in the body and therefore actively participate in the mechanisms tanning. Tomato extract also has a protective action against pollution and ultraviolet rays.

Grape extract

The final touch with grape marc, composed of flavones, anthocyanins and tannins, natural antioxidants, making this recipe a success. It helps prevent cell aging.
