Carotenoids Protect the Skin, Make it Healthy
When balanced nutrition and stress free living is out of reach,
supplementing the skin with
IBR-Phyto(flu)ene, the COLORLESS CAROTENOIDS
from within and without
An April 2011 SOFW-Journal article reveals that well balanced, carotenoids rich nutrition and stress avoidance correlate with increased levels of carotenoids in the skin. In addition, skin carotenoids levels can be increased via topical supplementation*

Carotenoids are known to contribute to skin protection, beauty and wholesomeness.
Today, with the demands of modern life and our hectic schedule, balanced nutrition and stress free living is thought by many to be beyond our reach.
To supplement the skin with naturally prefered and accumulated carotenoids, IBR offers its complete IBR-Phyto(flu)ene® product line of phytoene and phytofluene, the COLORLESS CAROTENOIDS.
The IBR-Phyto(flu)ene® product line is designed to provide a solution for supplementation of the colorless carotenoids to the skin via both oral and topical routes:
PhytoflORAL® is a free-flowing powder rich in phytoene and phytofluene, FSA Non-Novel Food approved, aimed at dietary supplementation for beauty from within
IBR-CLC® are colorless carotenoids from algal source for topical application
IBR-TCLC® are colorless carotenoids from tomato source for topical application
The IBR product portfolio includes natural, ECOCERT validated and/or organic certified products.
IBR-Phyto(flu)ene® technology is based on phytoene and phytofluene, the COLORLESS CAROTENOIDS, which absorb light in the UV range and appear colorless to the human eye.
These natural multifunctional actives have effective activities on skin lightening and de-pigmentation, enhancing skin anti inflammatory capacity, protecting against UV and oxidative damage that can lead to premature aging. Additionally, phytoene and phytofluene are able to protect DNA from UV and free radical damage as well as collagen from degradation.
All these contribute to the healthy, youthful flawless appearance of the skin complexion.
Noteworthy: it has been found that in case of a carotenoids rich diet, phytoene and phytofluene are accumulating preferentially in the skin.
Supplementation with these preferred skin carotenoids both from within with PhytoflORAL and topically, with IBR-(T)CLC will contribute to stress reduction, skin protection and beautification**
