What the heck is pure lycopene powder? According to Stafford R. Broumand, M.D., F.A.C.S.: "Lycopene belongs to the class of compounds called carotenoids — the red pigment that provides color to plants." The first product to come to your mind when considering red pigment might be tomatoes, but according to Dr. Paul Jarrod Frank, papaya, guava, mangoes, pink grapefruit and rose hips are all rich in the compound.


Pure lycopene powder is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory that helps protect skin from environmental agents that can contribute to clogged pores and breakouts."

Lycopene has a certain whitening effect, it can form a protective barrier on the surface of our skin, can help the skin to protect against ultraviolet rays, reduce the damage caused by daily radiation, so it is beneficial to eat more tomatoes, or take some health food that contains rich lycopene.


Oily and combination skin see big benefits, but our interview subjects insist that there aren't many skin types that won't benefit from the ingredient. Dr. Frank recommends lycopene for sun damage and excess pigmentation, or melasma, for its gentle lightening effects. Dr. Elizabeth Tanzi, a dermatologist in Washington, DC, loves it for its anti-aging properties (it prevents the breakdown of collagen, one of the causes of wrinkles). Finally, Dr. Broumand states that even if you have extremely sensitive skin, you can use lycopene-rich products without making yourself, well, red in the face: "Pure lycopene powder has been shown to be safe on the skin and generally does not cause irritation."
