One-a-day Skin Whitening Supplement Crystal Tomato


Look fair and healthy with this revolutionary oral supplement, scientifically proven to protect the skin from within.

Give your daily beauty regimen a power boost with Crystal Tomato™, a one-a-day health supplement containing colourless carotenoids, one of nature’s most efficacious whitening ingredients. Daily consumption of the supplement helps to promote an even skin tone and radiant complexion in 60 days.

This collaboration between Singapore medical and aesthetics company Gromark and research scientists in Israel, is the result of more than ten years of research and development.

Israeli scientists have specially cultivated a unique breed of non-genetically modified white tomatoes that contain a high concentration of two types of colourless carotenoids – Phytoene and Phytofluene - for use in the Crystal Tomato™ supplement. Colourless carotenoids are the first molecules produced in the sequence of processes in the tomato plant to create carotenoids, which primarily function as anti-oxidants.

Unlike orange or red carotenoids, which change the colour of the skin to a tan or orange shade when consumed in large amounts, colourless carotenoids do not contain any visible colour and will not affect the colour of the skin. Besides, regular tomatoes contain only negligible amounts of Phytoene and no Phytofluene.

Dr Alain Khaiat, member of the Singapore Delegation to the Asean Cosmetic Scientific Body, says: “When consumed, colourless carotenoids preferentially attach to the skin where they are the only carotenoids to protect against harmful ultra-violet rays that cause skin damage.”

Colourless carotenoids are scientifically proven to benefit the skin and improve its clarity in the following ways:

Phyto(flu)ene can block triggers of melanin synthesis

1. Serve as a natural sunscreen against UVA and UVB rays to protect against UV damage, photo-oxidation and sunburn.
2. Act as anti-oxidants to protect against free radical damage caused by environmental aggressors.
3. Have anti-inflammatory properties against wounds and UV damage.
4. Inhibit melanin synthesis to prevent pigmentation spots from forming.
5. Reduce the melanin present in the cells including dark acne scars, freckles, dark underarms and age spots.

Using patented technology to extract colourless carotenoids from the white tomatoes, each pill contains 800mg of active ingredients, the equivalent to eating two white tomatoes a day. Crystal Tomato™ is manufactured in a good manufacturing practice (GMP) certified laboratory in the United States of America.

Dr Khaiat, who is also the Advisor to the Health Sciences Authority (Singapore), adds that there are no side effects to consuming this natural daily supplement. L-Cysteine, an amino acid, is also included in the supplement to increase the efficacy of Crystal Tomato™. This is one of the few amino acids that is able to bond in a special way to maintain the structure of proteins in the body and help in the formation of collagen, hence promoting healthy skin.

L-Cysteine also helps to boost the liver’s production of Glutathione, commonly referred to as the body’s master anti-oxidant, to maintain skin health. Without Glutathione, cells will die at a faster rate, leading to quicker ageing. Glutathione also has the ability to lighten dark skin and pigmentation, including dark acne scars, freckles, dark underarms and age spots by altering the melanocytes’ metabolic processes to produce light pink melanin instead of dark brown or black melanin.

Although Glutathione is commonly found in oral supplements, it is not absorbed when taken orally and has no effect on the skin. By including L-Cysteine, a natural precursor of Glutathione in Crystal Tomato™, the natural mechanisms in the body are activated to produce its own Glutathione to improve the appearance of the skin.

Even established beauty experts in the industry are excited about the extraordinary benefits of Crystal Tomato™.

Renowned Singaporean plastic surgeon Woffles Wu says, “Crystal Tomato™ is a unique formulation of a unique ingredient. Colourless carotenoids are a breakthrough concept that can only be found in Crystal Tomato™. We know that coloured carotenoids make the skin look orange. Crystal Tomato™ works in reverse and makes the skin lighter.”

Dr Wu adds, “Colourless carotenoids have been shown to boost the skin’s natural ability to protect from the sun’s damaging UV rays, as well as to reduce abnormal melanin production. We now have the ability to treat melasma internally as well as externally.”

“Taken once a day, it is easy to comply and achieve consistent good results.”

Together, colourless carotenoids and L-Cysteine in the Crystal Tomato™ health supplement give the modern woman a youthful, fairer and healthier looking skin. Crystal Tomato™ is now available at following medical clinics at $169 for a box of 30 caplets.
