New study: Beautiful skin forever study shows rare combination of outcomes with Lutemax 2020

Morristown, N.J., December 15, 2016 – A new study—Beautiful Skin Forever—showed that supplementation with Lutemax 2020 resulted in a rare combination of outcomes that are attributed to beautiful, healthy skin. The findings were the subject of a paper, “Overall skin tone and skin-lightening-improving effects with oral supplementation of lutein and zeaxanthin isomers: a double-blind placebo-controlled clinical trial,” which was published in the journal Clinical, Cosmetic and Investigational Dermatology, 2016 (Juturu, et al.).

“We are seeing compelling science expanding the macular carotenoids beyond vision into exciting new categories such as skin health, and our robust clinical program is rapidly expanding this growing breadth of research,” said Lynda Doyle, Sr. VP, Global Marketing of OmniActive Health Technologies. “The results of the Beautiful Skin Forever Study serve as an important part of our Lutein For Every Age™ program, further supporting our ongoing efforts to help build new claims and concepts for the industry.”

Beautiful Skin Forever was a 12 week double-blind, placebo-controlled parallel study in healthy men and women (ages 18-45 years) with mild to moderate dry skin in which subjects supplemented daily with either a placebo or 10 mg Lutemax 2020. Lutemax 2020 supplementation resulted in improved overall skin tone, skin lightening/brightening, photo-protection and skin firmness.

Award-winning, globally-recognized Lutemax 2020 is a naturally-derived marigold extract providing all three macular carotenoids (lutein and enhanced levels of both zeaxanthin isomers—RR-and RS [meso]-zeaxanthin) at the same 5:1 ratio as found in nature. FDA-GRAS notified Lutemax 2020 is manufactured under a fully vertically integrated source.
