B-carotene formulations: Scientists from DSM
Nutritional Products have identified how the carotenoid b-carotene can help
reduce photoaging (skin damage from exposure to sunlight). In a new article,
they demonstrate that b-carotene can inhibit UVA-induced matrix metalloprotease
1 and 10 expression in human skin keratinocytes by a singlet oxygen-dependent
mechanism. DSM Nutritional Products offers a wide range of b-carotene formulations.
The oily suspension Beta-carotene 30 percent FS and the Beta-carotene 10 percent
CWS powder are the two main formulations for foods. —DSM Nutritional Products
