Where Radiant Skin Comes From

Posted by Jennifer Edwards on

As a whole, carrot extract is pretty good for your skin, but what companies are mostly trying to get to through extraction is that sweet sweet beta-carotene, also spelled "ß-carotene." You might know it as the component responsible for giving carrots their orange tinge, but as you're about to find out, that's certainly not its only use.

Beta-carotene is a precursor to vitamin A—the vitamin responsible for cell regeneration—so when it's applied topically, it steps up the skin's rate of cell turnover, bringing the younger, more radiant skin cells to the surface. In essence, it has a similar effect to turning up the brightness on your selfie.

As a main ingredient in our BOOST Wrinkle Recovery Serum, carrots are also rich in antioxidants. Antioxidants are vital in fending off skin-damaging free radicals found in everything from polluted air to the sun's rays, and it can help fade any pesky patches of hyperpigmentation. It's pretty great for people who want something gentle to even out their skin.
