Lycopene is a bright red carotenoid pigment and phytochemical found in tomatoes and other red fruits. In plants, algae, and other photosynthetic organisms, lycopene is an important intermediate in the biosynthesis of many carotenoids, including beta carotene, responsible for yellow, orange or red pigmentation, photosynthesis, and photo-protection.
Lycopene, structurally, is a tetraterpene assembled from eight isoprene units, composed entirely of carbon and hydrogen, and is insoluble in water. Lycopene's eleven conjugated double bonds give it its deep red color and are responsible for its antioxidant activity.

- Comestics Coloring
Lycopene is wildly used in Comesics Coloring, with naturally coloring quality with no side effects.
Lycopene quenches singlet oxygen or captures peroxide radicals by physical and chemical means. Singlet oxygen is an oxygen free radical with strong activity and cytotoxic effect, which is most sensitive to parts such as cell membrane and mitochondria. It can interact with a variety of biological macromolecules in the cell and cause damage to the cell membrane system by binding with molecules.
Experiments have shown that lycopene inhibits tumor growth by inducing intercellular connections, enhancing GJIC between normal cells, controlling cell growth and inducing cell differentiation.
- Regulate Cholesterol
Lycopene is A low-cholesterol agent that inhibits macrophages' 3-hydroxy3-methylglutarate monoacyl coenzyme A, which is A rate-limiting enzyme for cholesterol biosynthesis. It was found that the cholesterol synthesis of macrophages was decreased after lycopene was added to the medium of macrophages culture, and the lycopene also increased the activity of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) receptor of macrophages.
Lycopene can prevent and inhibit tumor, on the one hand, because of its antioxidant effect; On the other hand, lycopene can block the gene mutation process of tissue cells under the action of external mutagens, which is one of the important mechanisms of tumorigenesis.
