Astaxanthin skin benefits are not widely known. More potent than its famous relatives Vitamins C and E, astaxanthin packs an antioxidant punch that helps protect skin from free radical damage. It belongs to a class of substances called carotenoids and is found in microalgae, yeast, salmon, krill, shrimp and some wild berries.



Studies have shown that astaxanthin has a number of health benefits such as increasing strength and endurance, fighting against diabetes complication, protecting eyes from cataracts and glaucoma, reducing risk of cardiovascular disease, preventing cancers, and assisting in neurodegenerative conditions such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD), Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s when taken internally. It’s also been shown that astaxanthin skin benefits exist.

Astaxanthin skin benefits include:

  1. Sun Protection. While it doesn’t shield against or absorb UV light, astaxanthin helps to reduce the development of free radicals and also to scavenge them after their formation, rendering them less harmful.
  2. Anti-inflammatory. This benefit helps protect the skin against sunburn and soothes a sunburn after it develops. Apply an astaxanthin skin serum along with your sunscreen to deliver effective sun protection each day.
  3. Stimulates Collagen Production. A study showed that crow’s feet wrinkles and elasticity improved after treatment with astaxanthin.

Find astaxanthin in a number of facial creams and serums including our Apothekari Bespoke Vitamin C Serum. Available in a 10% and 15% concentration, it’s supported by L-ascorbic acid, ferulic acid, green tea extract plus other potent antioxidants to hydrate, protect and brighten skin, giving it a more youthful glow.

Daily Infusion Moisturizer

Love this moisturizer. So soft and dewy.

Love, love, love!

I've only been using this serum for a couple of weeks and the difference in my skin is already noticeable. I have very sensitive skin and didn't have any irritation. I was able to use it daily from day 1. Love this product! It's going to be a staple in my arsenal from now on.

Works good but..

I have been using this deodorant for a couple weeks now and it works very well to keep door at bay. However it dries sticky and when I sweat it gets even more sticky. I will keep using fur a while to see if I can get past the sticky feeling, but not sure if I can. It’s too bad because it really does work.

Good customer service

Updated Review: Customer service reached out to me promptly and provided me with a refund. I was satisfied with customer service. Wish this product worked for me because prior to the rash it was great.

This worked for a few weeks and I started getting a painful red rash under my arms. I was about to purchase a set of 4 and I’m glad that I didn’t. I reached out to the company to inquire about what could have caused this as they claim to have products that don’t cause rashes. Of course no one ever replied. Will not purchase again
