Product Description

Product Description

Jarrow Formulas Skin L and P combines the best of nutritional and herbal support for skin health. Glutathione is one of the body’s most important protective agents for both skin and liver and plays an important role in regulating melanin activation in response to sunlight. It has been clinically tested for supporting skin tone. Tocotrienols and astaxanthin have been studied in human subjects for supporting skin health and tone. Hydroxytyrosol has been shown to augment intracellular glutathione levels in the skin. Alpha lipoic acid and vitamin C support the effects of the other ingredients.

The skin is the largest organ in the human body and provides the first line of defense from the outside environment. But many of us take this protection for granted, assuming that the skin deserves less attention than other parts of the body. Yet at the same time, we are often acutely aware that other people pay attention to our skin as part of our outward appearance. Jarrow Formulas Skin L&P, 60 Capsules At a Glance: Provides a blend of nutritional and botanical support for improving and maintaining healthy skin tone and appearance* Guards against skin cell damage and the associated production of pigments Supports the skin's natural protection from UV radiation* Suitable for people interested in improving and/or maintaining healthy, even and luminous skin tone* Jarrow Formulas Skin L&P, 60 Capsules Product Shot Provides a blend of nutritional and botanical support for improving and maintaining healthy skin tone and appearance*. Jarrow Formulas Skin L&P, 60 Capsules Product Shot Alpha lipoic acid is a sulfur-containing molecule that provides powerful antioxidative effects*. View larger. Lutathione Dry, scaly, pigmented, or leathery skin can sometimes be a barometer of tissue health, but the skin's appearance can also affect how we are perceived. Taut, vibrant skin can be taken as an indication of youth and vigor, for example. Skin tone may be similarly judged. Skin tone is mostly a product of the amount of the pigment melanin that skin cells produce, a quantity that is less fixed than many people assume. Vitamin C Vitamin C is required for the biosynthesis of collagen, a critical protein used in the development, maintenance, and repair of skin, blood vessels, and other connective tissues. Thus, vitamin C not only directly enhances skin health, but also indirectly helps to maintain the microcapillary circulation that allows efficient delivery of necessary nutrients to skin cells. Vitamin C also acts as a potent antioxidant and regenerator of other antioxidants such as vitamin E, helping to neutralize the oxidative stress that leads to skin damage and aging.* Lastly, multiple studies have indicated that vitamin C modulates melanin production in the skin, helping to stimulate lighter and brighter skin.* Glutathione Glutathione is a tripeptide produced by the body and used for antioxidant protection.* Studies have shown that glutathione can improve skin tone by quenching harmful free radicals and peroxides that can activate melanin formation in the skin. In a double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical study, 500mg/day of glutathione oral supplementation for 4 weeks in healthy young adults resulted in significantly reduced UV-associated damage and resultant production of pigments (melanin) in the skin.* Alpha Lipoic Acid Alpha lipoic acid (aka ALA, lipoate, thioctic acid) is a sulfur-containing molecule, like glutathione, that provides powerful antioxidative effects.* Because of its unique molecular structure, ALA quenches free radicals–like hydroxyl, singlet-oxygen, and peroxynitrite–in both water and lipid phases, and protects against lipid peroxidation. It deactivates an unusually wide array of cell-damaging free radicals in the skin, where the first defense against harmful UV light and other environmental oxidative assault occurs. It can also increase glutathione levels in cells by supporting glutathione biosynthesis.* Tocotrienols Tocotrienols are natural compounds that belong to the vitamin E family and are found in vegetable oils, nuts, and grains. Jarrow Formulas Tocomin utilizes a patented mild extraction process to allow maximum preservation of quality tocotrienols. Tocotrienols provide superior protection for the skin because, as antioxidants, they are 40 - 60 times more potent than the normal alpha-tocopherol vitamin E. They also display preferential accumulation in the strata corneum of the skin, higher recycling efficiency from chromanoxyl radicals, more uniform distribution in cell membranes, and better interaction with lipid radicals, all of which contribute to better skin protection and health.* Hytolive: Hydroxytyrosol Hytolive is an all-natural solvent-free extract of olive fruits (Olea europaea). It contains high amounts of hydroxytyrosol, the primary phenolic compound found in olive fruits and oil. Studies have shown that hydroxytyrosol can effectively reduce the DNA damage often caused by environmental and UV-associated stress in the skin*. Hydroxytyrosol can also help maintain healthy immune responses and cell cycles.* Together these beneficial effects contribute to enhanced skin defense and appearance.* Astaxanthin Astaxanthin is another antioxidant and inflammation-modulating pigment naturally found in various plants and animals. It is prevalent in algae and phytoplankton, with Jarrow Formulas' astaxanthin being naturally harvested from Haematococcus pluvalis microalgae grown in sustainable ponds. Astaxanthin has demonstrated a 550-fold and 11-fold stronger ability to quench reactive oxygen species (ROS) than vitamin E and beta-carotene, respectively. Scientific studies have suggested it has the ability to protect skin from harmful UV-induced oxidative stress and collagen degradation.* Reduced skin damage leads to a decrease in melanocyte activation and melanin production. Astaxanthin supplementation, therefore, helps maintain healthier, smoother, and lighter looking skin.* Ultimately, it is important to take care of the skin from an early age not only to maintain healthy and great-looking skin, but also to protect the body systematically.* Jarrow Formulas' Skin L&P combines the best of nutritional and botanical support for skin health and appearance.* Note: If you have a medical condition, are pregnant, lactating, trying to conceive, or taking medications, consult your health care practitioner before using this product.

So, for me, I did not notice a difference.
PhAzEr DaZeR
I hesitate to do that because I don't know enough about what exactly is making this supplement work, therefore I'm not going to try and mess with it on my own.
Vyshtia
This product does not bleach the skin, but improves skin tone, and look.

Size Name: 60 Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
At first, I was worried that this product would lighten my skin too much (as in bleaching it out), but I did have some uneven tones on my cheeks and under my eyes and this supplement was more about *evening* out skin tone. I figured why not. Luckily my fear didn't come to pass.

Each day for a month, according to the directions on the bottle, I took a capsule in the morning and in the evening. This was done in addition to my regular multi-vitamin regimen.

At the end of 30 days, here's what I can say for certain: I did notice some changes in my skin, but they were subtle. It lightened a few of the dark spots I had on my cheeks and my skin did seem healthier. The thing is, the changes I've seen so far aren't enough to warrant me continuing the regimen.

In fact, the changes were akin to those I saw when I switched my skin care products a few months back, and in that case, other people noticed the difference. With this, no one aside from myself has noticed.

I may continue using the product for another 30 days just to be certain and I'll be sure to update my review if anything changes (for better or worse).

For those curious, here's a list of the ingredients from the back of the bottle:
Vitamin C 100mg
Glutathione 500mg
Alpha Lipoic Acid 100mg
Tocotrienois (as d-alpha, -beta, -gamma, and -delta), (Tocomin Palm Tocotrienol-Tocophenrol Complex) 40mg
Hydroxytyrosol (Olea europaea) (fruit) (Hytolive, 14% hydroxytyrosol) 10mg
Astaxanthin (from Haematococcus pluvialis) 2mg

Other Ingredients: Magnesium stearate (vegetable source), silicon dioxide, and cellulose. Capsule consists of gelatin and titanium dioxide.

No wheat, no gluten, no soybeans, no dairy, no egg, no fish/shellfish, no peanuts/tree nuts.

I've been using this product for a few weeks. Essentially you take a total of two capsules a day, one in the morning and one in the evening with meals.It contains liver and skin enhancing ingredients including astaxanthin, glutathione, alpha lipoic acid,tocotrienals and hydroxytyrosol. Initially I noticed no difference. I have never been a sun worshipper but a few years ago I developed a small discoloration on my face. No big deal, easily camoflouged with a touch of concealer. I just noticed that after taking this religiously, the spot has been reduced in size and color almost seventy percent. Seeing is believing so it is two thumbs up for me.

Since I began taking supplements which include those listed as ingredients in this formula my skin has DEFINITELY made remarkable improvements in the "Supports Smooth and Luminous Skin" department so I rate this product as 5 stars.

Per the packaging:
Serving Size: 2 Capsules Servings Per Container: 30

Vitamin C 100 mg 167% (Anti-oxidant, important cardiovascular nutrient)
Glutathione 500 mg (literature states not well absorbed when taken as a supplement, supports liver function as well which is vital for glowing skin)
Alpha Lipoic Acid 100 mg (great anti-oxidant, especially for the nerves)
Tocotrienols (d-alpha, beta, gamma, delta) 40 mg (think the full complement of natural Vitamin E...)
Hydroxytyrosol 10 mg (very very powerful plant based anti-oxidant)
Astaxanthin 2mg (the RED pigment in lobster and shrimp - powerful anti-oxidant)

I notice this formula is MISSING Omega 3 Essential Fatty Acids such as fish, flax, evening primrose and/or borage seed oil. Reviewing the ingredients, a good complement for great skin would include taking Rainbow Light Omega Skin and Mood Vitamins, 60 Count in addition to Skin L & P. Between these two particular formulas the only duplication is the Astaxanthin - which would not be a bad thing!

Of course the FDA requires the label to read: "Note: If you have a medical condition, are pregnant, lactating, trying to conceive, or taking medications, consult your health care practitioner before using this product." Always do research and always check with your health professionals.

I have been taking these pills for a month, and recently finished up the bottle. I really cannot tell much of a difference in my skin. I still have blotchy redness, which has not improved over the last month. My skin is a little softer than it was a month ago, but that is the only improvement that I can notice.

Perhaps it takes longer than a month to start seeing results, but I am not willing to invest in another bottle to test that theory.

I have melasma (dark pigmentation of the skin). I've tried many different creams with little to no success, so I was excited to see that there was possibly a supplement that could treat this problem.

Several days after starting this supplement I began experiencing heart palpitations. I did a Google search on each of the ingredients - trying to determine which one might have caused this side effect - but I didn't come up with anything. Perhaps it was a fluke. However, it was alarming enough for me to quickly stop the supplement. As soon as I stopped taking it the heart palpitations ceased.
