They are responsible for the orange and red colors of many fruits and vegetables. Commonly found in commercial lines of skin care products, Lycopene is used for a multitude of purposes including products for acne, photodamage, pigmentation, skin moisturization, skin texture, skin elasticity, and skin superficial structure.
