Botanic Innovations has recently added Tomato Seed Oil to its product profile to be used as the "next hot ingredient to enhance skincare product performance," according to Mark Mueller, Founder of Botanic Innovations. He notes that tomato seed oil has special value as an ingredient in personal care, including for mature, aging skin; dry skin; irritable skin; brittle or damaged hair; acne and suncare. It has light viscosity, high nutrient values and excellent skin absorption. The oil also has good stability and shelf life. Tomato Seed Oil has a bright reddish orange color and is rich in carotenoid antioxidants including lycopene, lutein and zeaxanthin.
