CRYSTAL TOMATO® SUPPLEMENTS
Crystal Tomato® Dietary Supplement is a Natural Food made from a special varietal of 100% natural Non-Genetically-Modified Tomato and is Preservative-Free.
Crystal Tomato® Carotenoid is the key active ingredient in Crystal Tomato® Dietary Supplement.
Carotenoids are a class of natural substances (naturally occurring pigments synthesized by plants, algae, and photosynthetic bacteria). The primary function of carotenoids is Anti-Oxidant.
There are many Carotenoids and they are mainly colored. The more commonly known ones are Beta Carotene (orange colored, high presence in carrots) and Lycopene (bright red colored, high presence in common tomatoes).
Crystal Tomato® Carotenoids are without colour. Colorless substances do not absorb in the visible light spectrum, they absorb at lower wavelength (i.e. UV) or higher wavelength (i.e. Infra-Red or IR).
Due to the high concentration of Crystal Tomato® Carotenoids, each pill corresponds to 3 fresh crystal tomatoes.
Yes. Crystal Tomato® corresponds to a special varietal of tomato which is cultivated specifically for this purpose only. Such type of tomato does not exist anywhere else.
Consuming colored carotenoids in large amount will affect the color of the skin. In particular, beta carotene taken in large amount over a long period would give skin an orange tint. Consuming regular tomatoes also do not protect against UV and do not have skin whitening functions as they only contain colored carotenoids.
Recommended intake for Crystal Tomato® is just One Caplet A Day but there is no harm in taking more. In view that the skin is a large organ and the benefits are delivered ‘head to toe’, 2 to 3 months for visible radiance and lightening effects should be expected.
However, many patients have provided feedback that benefits of Radiance and Lightening were visible from as soon as just 3 weeks of 1-a-day consumption dosage. Clinical Tests have shown that after 56 days, 76.5% of patients showed a remarkable improvement of more than 25% in modified Melasma Area Severity Index (mMASI) scores. (Study on Melasma, National Skin Centre, October 2013 to May 2014.)
Crystal Tomato® Dietary Supplement is a Natural Food consisting of natural tomatoes and L-cysteine (amino acids present in our body) which is a US FDA approved food additive.
There are no known side effects unless one is allergic to tomatoes.
Crystal Tomato® supplement is as safe to consume as a tomato. It is made from a rare breed of 100% natural, non-GMO tomato.
Crystal Tomato® being a Natural Food is suitable and safe for all – with the exception of people who are allergic to tomatoes or have been advised by their physicians not to take tomatoes for any reason.
As Crystal Tomato® is a Natural Food, it can be consumed continuously. Like with any food or other safe product, the results are reversible – when one stops consuming the supplement, the skin will progressively revert to its original form. It will not worsen but it will lose the benefits derived from consuming this supplement.
Yes. Crystal Tomato® Dietary Supplement is suitable for Vegetarians as well as for Vegans.
Acids are water-soluble. Crystal Tomato® Dietary Supplement is made from natural tomatoes that have been freeze dried into powder. No chemical is added. When the water is removed, the acids are also removed.
L-Cysteine has been added to the formula as it transforms into glutathione in our body. Glutathione converts dark brown melanin to pink melanin. However, glutathione – taken either orally or applied topically – is not absorbed by the body. Only L-Cysteine transformed glutathione will be absorbed.
Clinical Tests have shown that after 56 days, 76.5% of patients showed a remarkable improvement of more than 25% in modified Melasma Area Severity Index (mMASI) scores. (Study on Melasma, National Skin Centre, October 2013 to May 2014.)
It is necessary to continue with the use of topical sunblock. Crystal Tomato® provides some protection but it is not sufficient to completely protect against direct sun exposure.
Taking Crystal Tomato® is like eating any fresh tomatoes and can be taken anytime, day or night, before food or after food. It is recommended to take daily at a regular time (i.e. if a pill is taken in the morning on the 1st day, try to follow the same sequence the following days).
CRYSTAL TOMATO® SKIN CLARITY CREAM
Crystal Tomato® Skin Clarity Cream is a cosmeceutical product specifically formulated for the improvement of pigmentation problems.
Crystal Tomato® Skin Clarity Cream incorporates 15 synergistic active ingredients to specifically inhibit the different pathways in the production of melanin inside skin cells. One of these ingredients, Tyrosinase Inhibitor Complex, is a particularly potent inhibitor of an important enzyme required for the formation of melanin.
In addition, Crystal Tomato® Skin Clarity Cream also contains super anti-oxidants like Vitamin A, Vitamin B3, Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Rumex Occidentalis extract.
Together, they help to lighten facial spots and inhibit new formations of melanin.
Crystal Tomato® Skin Clarity Cream is formulated to reduce the four (4) main causes of hyperpigmentation. They are:
- UVA/B Rays
- Free Radicals
- Melanin Formation
Most topical depigmentation products in the market, however, contain only one to three active ingredients that target at reducing pigmentation issues. Recent research has shown that this is not as effective.
Crystal Tomato® Skin Clarity Cream formulation incorporates 15 Active ingredients working synergistically to target not only the formation of melanin, but also to stop the various aggravating factors of skin pigmentation like inflammation, oxidative stress and ultraviolet radiation.
Absolutely not. Remarkably, none of the harsh whitening agents popular with many depigmentation products are used in Crystal Tomato® Skin Clarity Cream: No Hydroquinone, no Steroid, and no Retin-A and never will be. Which is another significant difference that Crystal Tomato® Skin Clarity Cream has over other products – it is a safe and non-invasive topical cream.
A double blind placebo Clinical Trial of Crystal Tomato® supplements and Crystal Tomato® Skin Clarity Cream was conducted in a tertiary dermatological institute in Singapore in 2014.
The trial involved 44 Melasma patients selected from those who had either been treated with or were still undergoing the industry gold standard “Triple Therapy” (Hydroquinone, Steroid and Retin-A) treatment for Melasma, but who had not or were not achieving the desired results.
These patients saw improvements by 25% after just 56 days of Crystal Tomato® Skin Clarity Cream. The result was further enhanced to over 50% improvement after the 84th day.
The results of the Crystal Tomato® and Crystal Tomato® Skin Clarity Cream Clinical Study were published in the peer-reviewed Journal of Pigmentary Disorders.
The skin is a living organ. Hormonal issues, stress, environmental pollution, medications, etc are constant aggressors that trigger excessive melanin production which lead to Melasma and pigmentation issues. When Crystal Tomato® Skin Clarity Cream is discontinued, the skin will revert to its previous condition and its vulnerability to the same constant aggressors without the benefit and protection of Crystal Tomato® Skin Clarity Cream.
It is important to remember that the activity of any cosmeceutical product is only temporary. Any product that triggers a permanent activity is likely to be unsafe.
No. Crystal Tomato® Skin Clarity Cream contains anti-oxidants, anti-inflammatory and sun filtering properties. They help to protect the skin during sun exposure.
Yes! Most definitely. The use of Sunblock is a Must even if the treatment product contains some degree of sunscreen properties.
Always apply Sunblock as the final step to any skincare routine. Avoid massaging or rubbing in Sunblock as its primary function is to act as a barrier to shield your skin against sun damage. Sunblock is not supposed to be absorbed by the skin.
Crystal Tomato® Skin Clarity Cream contains a mild exfoliating agent. So, yes, in some (but not too common) instances, you will find mild skin peeling during the initial period of use.
- It helps to clear Melasma spots and most forms of skin pigmentation
- It helps to even out skin tone
- It inhibits the formation of new pigmentation
- It contains mild exfoliants to rejuvenate skin
- It contains anti-oxidants, UVA and UVB filters, and anti-inflammatory and moisturizing agents to protect skin
- It gives radiance to skin
- It does not leave skin dry and irritated
- It is convenient, safe and gentle for daily use
Anyone who wants a brighter, lighter and a more even skin tone can use Crystal Tomato® Skin Clarity Cream. Although it has been proven to be very effective for more severe skin pigmentation problems, it is perfectly safe to use for cosmetic purposes.
Yes, it is beneficial for acne sufferers. Crystal Tomato® Skin Clarity Cream helps to lighten dark acne scars and helps those with acne problems to maintain an even tone over an uneven complexion.
Crystal Tomato® Skin Clarity Cream is indeed useful to reduce and alleviate hyperpigmentation caused by laser or IPL treatments.
Crystal Tomato® Skin Clarity Cream is manufactured in Spain by an established GMP and CE certified laboratory.
The color is due to some of the natural ingredients in the formula. Color of the cream does not affect the product efficacy. It is normal to expect slight color variations in different production batches.
It is natural for any acid blend of product to turn darker over time. The color changes absolutely will not affect its treatment efficacies.
The following is the correct application:
- As Crystal Tomato® Skin Clarity Cream is a treatment cream, it should always be applied as the first product onto bare skin for optimal absorption
- If moisturizer is needed for dry and very dry skin, it should be added only after and on top of Crystal Tomato® Skin Clarity Cream
- For severe Melasma cases, it is best to first apply the cream thinly on the whole face and then follow through by further application of the cream onto the dark spots and gently massaging it to ensure absorption
- For small affected areas, Crystal Tomato® Skin Clarity Cream may be applied only on the affected spots
Crystal Tomato® Skin Clarity Cream is compatible with most skincare products. However, caution must be exercised to avoid combining it with the use of other whitening products that contain acid or bleaching agents.
Crystal Tomato® Skin Clarity Cream is mild, safe and non-invasive. Normally, it is applied twice daily – in the morning and right before bedtime after cleansing the face. The treatment can be repeated throughout the year.
It is not advisable to use any cosmetic products immediately following laser treatment and especially if a procedure results in abrasions or lacerations.
It is always recommended to wash face with a mild foaming cleanser in the morning.
Crystal Tomato® Skin Clarity Cream is not a make-up or a sunblock and the use of make-up removal before washing is not required unless you are wearing make-up or sunblock over it.
As evidenced from the clinical trial (mentioned above) involving melasma patients, improvements of up to 25% were recorded after 56 days, and up to over 50% after 84 days. Results from the clinical trial were measured using both Visia Skin Analysis and Mexameter by dermatologist investigators.
Patients with ultra-sensitive skin may feel slight itching or minor stinging sensation on the initial product application and sometimes redness may follow. These symptoms are temporary but if they do persist or if you develop an allergic reaction, stop using the product.
For dry and very dry skin, slight itching and a tingling sensation may be expected on first application.
Using a good quality moisturizer immediately over Crystal Tomato® Skin Clarity Cream will help to eliminate the itching and tingling sensation and to counter effects of the dry climate.
Findings from the clinical trial conducted in 2014 have shown that the combined therapy Crystal Tomato® Skin Clarity Cream and Crystal Tomato® Dietary Supplements produced optimal results for reducing hyperpigmentation and for achieving a lighter, brighter and more even skin tone.
However, both Crystal Tomato® Skin Clarity Cream and Crystal Tomato® Dietary Supplements can be used independent of each other and will provide good results on its own merit. Crystal Tomato® Dietary Supplements, taken orally, has an effect on the whole body.
No. There is no Crystal Tomato Powder (Carotenoids) in Crystal Tomato® Skin Clarity Cream. Although Crystal Tomato® Powder works perfectly in oral supplements, it has absolutely no effect when applied topically over skin as it cannot be absorbed via topical applications.

BEYOND SUN PROTECTION
Sunscreens are products that help to prevent the sun’s ultraviolet light (UV), blue light (HEV) and Infrared (IR) radiation from damaging the skin.
Sunscreens, topically applied, absorb or reflect the sun’s harmful ultraviolet, blue light and infrared, radiation, thus helping to protect the skin against sunburn, premature aging, hyperpigmentation and the risk of skin cancer.
There are 2 types of ultraviolet radiation, namely, UVA and UVB. The difference is in the wavelengths:
UVA (long wave ultraviolet A) penetrates deep into the dermis, the skin’s thickest layer.
UVB (short wave ultraviolet B) causes harm to the superficial layers of the skin.
UVA causes skin damage including hyperpigmentation, premature aging, photo-aging (skin wrinkling), suppression of the immune system and risk of skin cancer.
UVB is the culprit for sunburn.
Blue Light also known as High Energy Visible Light (HEV) is a short wavelength that produces high amounts of energy ranging from 380-500 nanometers.
It is scientifically proven that Blue Light causes skin damage including hyperpigmentation, inflammation, photo-aging (skin wrinkling & sagging) and it induces oxidative stress and the weakening of skin surface.
Blue Light is able to penetrate deeper into the skin compared with UVA & UVB. Some studies suggest that Blue Light is also more active in inducing skin pigmentation than UVA.
SPF (Sun Protection Factor) specifically indicates protection against UVB rays that cause sunburn.
E.g.: If your skin normally burns after 10 minutes under hot sun without protection, a SPF50 sunscreen would provide 50 times the protection versus bare skin. This means 500 minutes longer before you start to burn.
PPD (Persistent Pigment Darkening) is an in vivo method for measuring UVA protection. This is regarded as a highly effective method for assessing UVA protection.
PA (Protection grade of UVA) is another measurement of UVA protection. PA++++ grade offering protection of 15 and above is currently the highest rating for UVA protection.
Non-Comedogenic & Non-Acnegenic denote that the product does not clog pores, does not cause acne and does not worsen existing acne conditions.
Environmental Pollutants are scientifically proven to cause skin damage by inducing free radicals and oxidative stress resulting in premature aging, hyperpigmentation and skin inflammation.
Free radicals are created when UV rays come into contact with your skin. Free radicals cause skin inflammation and damage, leading to premature aging, wrinkling and even serious skin health issues.
Anti-Oxidants are clinically proven to effectively fight free radicals damage. They safely interact with and neutralize free radicals, helping to protect your complexion to keep it looking fresh and radiant.
Sunscreens offer varying degrees of protection against UVA/UVB. However, sun damage is not caused by UVA/UVB alone. Recent scientific evidence has revealed that HEV (Blue Light) is also a major and significant cause of hyperpigmentation and premature aging of skin. Environmental Pollution, too, has been shown to be also very harmful to skin.
A good sunscreen, then, must be able to offer adequate and effectiveprotection against all these – UVA/UVB, HEV, and Environmental Pollution. This is where protection score ratings of SPF, PPD, and HEV, provide the first clue to whether you are choosing the right sunscreen.
Next, ensure score ratings stated on the products are clinically proven. The sunscreen should also have anti-pollution and anti-oxidant properties and be non-comedogenic. Needless to say, the texture of the sunscreen is also an important factor to consider.
There is a bewildering range of sunscreens ranging from $1 to $200 from all over the world. So how is Crystal Tomato® Beyond Sun Protection special?
Crystal Tomato® Beyond Sun Protection has taken 5 long years to develop. Numerous research studies, costly trials and formula testing were conducted in various countries during this time. The final product guarantees more than adequate protection against Blue Light (HEV) 54.1%, UVA (PPD 17.2), UVB (SPF79.7).
All protection score ratings of Crystal Tomato® Beyond Sun Protection are clinically derived and proven. In addition to the broad-spectrum protection against harmful sun radiation, Beyond Sun Protection is also Anti-Pollution, Anti-Oxidant, Infrared, Hydration, Whitening and Non-Comedogenic. Each of these claims is fully supported by stringent lab test/clinical trial reports from renowned institutions.
The uniqueness of this product, however, is that despite the complete and very high protection level against sun damage to the skin, the cream is extremely wearable – Light, Non-Greasy and with a Dry Touch. In fact, this is the most immediate difference that you will encounter and is a result of the years of testing.
Crystal Tomato® Beyond Sun Protection has been tested for: SPF (in vitro & in vivo) with score rating SPF 79.7, Blue Light (HEV) in vitro & in vivo with score rating 54.1%, PPD (Persistent Pigment Darkening) in vivo with score rating 17.2 (PA++++), Anti-Pollution, Infrared, Anti-Oxidants, Non-Comedogenic, Non-Acnegenic, Hypoallergenic, Hydration – (result of moisture increases by 32% after 27 days) and Whitening. Above claims are fully supported by scientific evidence.
Besides complete protection against harmful effects of sun radiation, Crystal Tomato®️ Beyond Sun Protection is also clinically proven to protect skin against Environmental Pollution, with Anti-Oxidants to fight free radicals, and shown to assist skin Hydration and Whitening.

Always apply sunscreen as the final step of skincare regime but before foundation and makeup.
In general, the amount of 1cm x 1 cm (or 0.25g) of sunscreen should cover the face and neck sufficiently. We strongly recommend to apply sufficient sunscreen to fully cover the face and neck for effective protection.
Always re-apply after swimming, perspiration and after wiping face. It is recommended to re-apply sunscreen every 2 or 3 hours.
Sunscreen should be applied after skincare products as the last step. However, sunscreen should be applied before foundation and makeup. Do not mix sunscreen together with other skincare products or makeup.
Do not use sunscreen products on babies under 6 months old. It is usually considered safe to apply sunscreen on babies over 6 months and older children.
People with severe eczema and skin diseases should consult a doctor before applying Crystal Tomato® Beyond Sun Protection. People who are sensitive to ingredients in the sunscreen should not use it.
Wash with abundant water.
Remove sunscreen with makeup remover followed by washing with foaming cleanser.
It may cause minor staining but this can be easily removed by washing with detergent. However, as with any sunscreen, wash stains immediately and do not leave the stain to penetrate overnight.
The validity of Crystal Tomato®️ Beyond Sun Protection is 3 years from date of manufacturing. The expiry date can be found on the box and the crimped edge of the product.
