Spotlight on: Beauty-boosting food supplements

Many skin conditions are consequential of internal factors such as health-related issues, vitamin deficiency, etc.

Beauty-boosting supplements are an incredibly effective way of combating conditions such as dull skin and loss of glow. Many dermatologists are recommending food supplements to women for treating skin from the inside.

One recent trend in Israel: nutri-cosmetic supplements should renew and improve the production of collagen and keratin​, instead of injecting foreign collagen or fillers from the outside, thereby attenuating the aging process of the skin, nails and hair.

Slowing skin ageing, protection from UV, anti-pollution claims and more

Israeli Biotechnology Research Ltd. (IBR) established in 1995, recently became part of the International Flavors & Fragrances Inc., and develops proprietary technological natural active ingredients for the beauty and wellness industries.

IBR develops ,manufacture and markets their products with emphasis on inhibiting cell slowing down skin aging, protecting the skin from UV radiation and air pollution, skin whitening and pigmentation prevention.

The company developed the only colorless carotenoid, IBR-Phyto(flu)ene®, extracted from algae and plants which  provides protection to skin in topical applications.

IBR has recently developed an oral product of phytoene and phytofluene to enhance skin beauty through oral consumption.  

This is a complementary dietary phytoene and phytofluene to enhance skin beauty and health from within.
