We proudly bring you our best, tested, natural tanning supplement. Oxysun is gluten-free and naturally lactose-free.
It is a supplement based on copper, tyrosine and lycopene, with patented PPMix (given by a mixture of Pomegranate juice and Polypodium dry extract in a predetermined ratio). This extract has an in vivo clinical study published in PubMed: “Comparative effects of a fixed Plypodium leucomotos / Pomegranate combination versus Polypodium leucomotos alone on skin biophysical parameters”, by Enzo Emanuele et al., 2017.
Best tanning supplement: why
Oxysun was formulated with the aim of:
- reduce erythema,
- prevent photo aging and sunspots,
- promote the synthesis of melanin.
The patented extract
The patented PPMix extract contains a patented combination of
polypodium and pomegranate juice in a fixed ratio obtained through an exclusive granulation process at low temperatures to preserve the phytocomplex. Polypodium is a tropical fern rich in antioxidants which is attributed a protective action with UV radiation. Its short-term effects include: inhibition of UV-induced ROS free radical production, and prevention of both UV-mediated necrosis apoptosis and degradative matrix remodeling which is the main cause of photo aging. These short-term effects translate into long-term prevention of photo-aging and photo-carcinogenesis.
Pomegranate is a rich source of polyphenols which have been shown to exert anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anticarcinogenic activity. Its extract therefore has a protective effect against cell damage induced by UVA and UVB.
Lycopene, copper, L-Tyrosine: the actions
Copper is a mineral involved in the pigmentation of the skin and hair and more: the process of biosynthesis of melanin mainly requires the presence of tyrosine, a copper-dependent enzyme. Copper is therefore essential to catalyze the conversion of tyrosine to DOPA during the melanogenesis process. L-Tyrosine, on the other hand, is the precursor amino acid of melanin. Lycopene, on the other hand, seems to be the antioxidant that is used up more quickly in the skin after exposure to solar radiation, thus playing a protective role against UV rays. Oral supplementation of lycopene has been shown to reduce radiation induced erythema.
Best tanning supplement: how to use it
We recommend taking one tablet a day, preferably on a full stomach after breakfast. Do not exceed the recommended daily dose. We also recommend that you take this supplement one month before sun exposure and continue the treatment throughout the exposure period, for a cycle of at least 3 months.
