Benefits of astaxanthin for anti-pollution

Austrian outfit BDI-BioLife Science has developed its own raw material containing 5% of astaxanthin. The properties of the red diamond have been substantiated by in vivo and in vitro proof of efficacy. While its effect against blue light-induced stress has already been proven in preliminary studies, the current research takes a closer look at the issue of blue light

ABSTRACT

Astaxanthin, a reddish pigment from the carotenoid family, is extracted from the alga Haematococcus pluvialis and considered the strongest naturally occurring antioxidant. To minimise long-term skin damage associated with pollution, astaxanthin can be used as a second-line protection. Its antiinflammatory activity has been known for a long time and has been confirmed by numerous studies. Especially for cosmetic products, BDI-BioLife Science has developed its own raw material containing 5% of astaxanthin. The properties of the red diamond have been substantiated by in vivo and in vitro proof of efficacy. While its effect against blue light-induced stress has already been proven in preliminary studies, the current research takes a closer look at the issue of blue light.

Natural and highly effective ingredients are increasingly becoming important; especially in the field of anti-pollution, the cosmetics industry is constantly looking for new solutions. One possible raw material could be the astaxanthincontaining antioxidant AstaCos® OL50.
