Astaxanthin Oil

Our Ingredient Fun Facts

At Xtracta, we work with a lot of natural ingredients in order to create unique hand crafted natural products that our customers have become accustomed to.

One of such ingredients is Astaxanthin

Astaxanthin is a red pigment belonging to a group of antioxidants called carotenoids.

They are derived naturally from the micro-alga haematococcus pluvialis. It is also responsible for the pink or red color observed in certain seafoods.

Astaxanthin contains significantly more antioxidants than other superfoods.

It is far more effective than Vitamin C, Beta carotene and Vitamin E in eliminating free radicals responsible for premature aging.

Astaxanthin is the most stable antioxidant with no risk of turning into a pro-oxidant. This is why it is one of our high-performance ingredient for anti-wrinkle and infraorbital edema, (bags under the eyes).

Our Astaxanthin oil is infused in Argan Oil for better performance and benefits.
