WHAT IS CRYSTAL TOMATO® DIETARY SUPPLEMENT?
Crystal Tomato® Dietary Supplement is a made from Non-Genetically-Modified Tomato and is Preservative-Free. The caplets are made from 100% natural tomatoes, but unlike normal tomatoes, these special tomatoes contain colourless carotenoids, and are unavailable for general sale.

 

WHAT IS THE KEY ACTIVE INGREDIENT IN CRYSTAL TOMATO® DIETARY SUPPLEMENT?
The key active ingredient in Crystal Tomato® Dietary Supplement is Crystal Tomato® Carotenoid.

 

HOW MANY TOMATOES WORTH OF CRYSTAL TOMATO® CAROTENOIDS ARE IN EACH CAPLET?
Each pill contains about 3 fresh crystal tomatoes because of the high concentration of Crystal Tomato® Carotenoids.

 

WHAT ARE CAROTENOIDS AND HOW DO THEY BENEFIT THE SKIN?
Carotenoids are natural compounds or pigments synthesized by plants, algae, and photosynthetic bacteria. They are powerful antioxidants.

 

IS CRYSTAL TOMATO® CULTIVATED SPECIFICALLY FOR ITS SKIN LIGHTENING PROPERTIES?
Yes. Crystal Tomato® is made from a special varietal of tomato which is cultivated specially for this purpose only. It does not exist anywhere else.

 

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF CRYSTAL TOMATO®?
Crystal Tomato® Carotenoids absorb UV and gives your skin an invisible shield from the sun, while reducing existing pigmentation. They also inhibit the formation of additional melanin, making the skin appear fairer. They are a great source of antioxidants, thus promoting cell DNA longevity.
You just need to take the caplets orally. There is no pain or discomfort involved, which is often associated with other methods of skin lightening.

 

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CRYSTAL TOMATO® CAROTENOIDS AND CAROTENOIDS?
There are many types of Carotenoids in existence and they are usually brightly coloured. For example, the orange-coloured Beta Carotene found in carrots, and the red-coloured Lycopene found in tomatoes.
Crystal Tomato® Carotenoids are UV absorbers. Crystal Tomato® Carotenoids are colourless and thus absorb UV, because colour reflects absorption of visible light. Colourless substances do not absorb in the visible spectrum, but absorb at lower wavelength (i.e. UV) or higher wavelength (i.e. Infra-Red or IR).

 

WOULD CONSUMING REGULAR COLOURED CAROTENOIDS (I.E. BETACAROTENE/LYCOPENE), GIVE THE SAME LIGHTENING EFFECT AS CONSUMING CRYSTAL TOMATO®?
No. Consuming large amounts of coloured carotenoids will affect the colour of the skin. For instance, large amounts of beta carotene taken over a long period of time would produce an orange tint in the skin. Moreover, consuming regular tomatoes do not have skin whitening functions as they only contain coloured carotenoids and also do not protect against UV.

 

HOW MUCH AND HOW LONG DOES ONE HAVE TO TAKE CRYSTAL TOMATO® SUPPLEMENT TO GET THE BENEFITS?
The recommended intake is one Crystal Tomato® caplet a day, but there is no harm in taking more. Because the skin is the largest organ and the benefits are delivered ‘head to toe’, we must allow 2 to 3 months for visible radiance and lightening effects to be visible. However, many patients have provided encouraging feedback that benefits of Radiance and Lightening were visible from as soon as just 3 weeks consuming 1 caplet a day.

 

WHEN SHOULD ONE TAKE CRYSTAL TOMATO®? MORNING OR NIGHT, BEFORE OR AFTER FOOD?
Consuming Crystal Tomato® should be like eating fresh tomatoes or any other fresh produce. It can be taken anytime, day or night, before food or after food. However, for your convenience, it is recommended that patients take a caplet daily at a regular time. For example, if a caplet is consumed in the morning on the first day, try to follow the same time on the following days.

 

WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS FROM TAKING CRYSTAL TOMATO®?
Crystal Tomato® Dietary Supplement is made from natural tomatoes and L-cysteine, which are amino acids present in our body. It is a US FDA approved food additive, thus safe to consume. To date, there are no known side effects, unless one is allergic to tomatoes.

 

IS CRYSTAL TOMATO® SUITABLE FOR VEGETARIANS?
Yes. Crystal Tomato® Dietary Supplement is suitable for Vegetarians as well as for Vegans.

 

HOW LONG DOES ONE CONTINUE TAKING CRYSTAL TOMATO® AND WHAT WILL HAPPEN WHEN ONE STOPS CONSUMING IT? WILL THE COLOR OF THE SKIN DARKEN AND THE CONDITION OF THE SKIN WORSEN?
Crystal Tomato® is a natural food made from natural tomatoes. Therefore, it can be consumed continuously. Similar to other foods or other safe products, the results are reversible. Once one stops consuming it, the skin will progressively revert back to its original condition. It will not worsen, but the benefits derived from consuming this supplement will be gone.

 

HOW SAFE IS CRYSTAL TOMATO®?
Crystal Tomato® supplement is a natural food made from natural tomatoes. Produced from a rare breed of 100% natural, non-GMO tomato, it is thus as safe to consume as a regular tomato.

 

ARE THERE ANY CLINICAL TRIAL RESULTS TO SHOW UV PROTECTION OF THE SKIN FROM ORAL USE OF CRYSTAL TOMATO® CAROTENOIDS?
Yes. In clinical studies it was found that oral intake of Crystal Tomato® Carotenoids does protect the skin from UV rays. In a recent study, the natural SPF of the skin increased up to a significant 20%.

 

ARE THERE ANY SCIENTIFIC DATA TO PROVE THAT CRYSTAL TOMATO® CAROTENOIDS TAKEN ORALLY LIGHTENS / WHITENS SKIN?
Yes, the increase in UV protection for the skin will lead to a reduction in darkening due to sun exposure. In a recent study, it was proven that there is also a significant lightening of skin colour.

 

WHY IS L-CYSTEINE, ANOTHER ACTIVE INGREDIENT IN CRYSTAL TOMATO® ADDED?
The function of L-Cysteine, added to the formula, is to transform into glutathione in our body. The glutathione compound converts dark brown melanin to pink melanin. However, whether consumed orally or applied topically, glutathione is not absorbed by the body. Only glutathione transformed from L-Cysteine will be absorbed by the body.

 

HOW DOES CRYSTAL TOMATO® PREVENT AGEING?
All carotenoids are excellent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant agents. Their long-term consumption will help to prevent damages caused by free radicals that lead to premature ageing. On top of that, Crystal Tomato® Carotenoids also prevent the formation of the free radicals by absorbing UV.

 

CRYSTAL TOMATO® SERVES AS A NATURAL SUNSCREEN AGAINST UVA/B. CAN IT REPLACE THE USE OF TOPICAL SUNBLOCK?
Crystal Tomato® provides some continuous protection for the whole body against UVA/B, but it is not sufficient to completely protect against direct sun exposure. Therefore, it is essential to continue using topical sunblock.

 

TOMATOES ARE KNOWN TO BE HIGH IN ACIDS. WOULD THE CONSUMPTION OF CRYSTAL TOMATO® CAUSE UNDESIRABLE REACTIONS FOR SUFFERERS FROM ACID REFLUX, GASTRIC ULCERS, AND HEARTBURN?
Crystal Tomato® Dietary Supplement is made from natural tomatoes that have been freeze dried and ground into fine powder. No chemicals are added in the process. When the water is removed, the acids are also removed, because acids are water-soluble.

 

CAN WOMEN PREPARING FOR PREGNANCY, PREGNANT WOMEN & BREAST FEEDING MOTHERS, CONSUME CRYSTAL TOMATO®?
Crystal Tomato® is suitable and safe for all because it is a natural food, with the exception of people who are allergic to tomatoes or have been advised by their physicians not to consume tomatoes for any reason.
