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.

I'm loving this deodorant from Apothekari! I'm very skeptical about natural deodorants because I perspire a lot and had always used antiperspirants. Wanting to go more natural, I've tried a few natural deodorants and this is by far the best. I can apply in the a.m., go overnight, and work out the next a.m. without having to reapply. I also love the smell. I have scent sensitivities and this citrus-ginger mix doesn't bother me at all. Super-happy with my purchase.

My recent order of apothecary

I’m so pleased with my products! My skin is already more radiant, pores are tighter !

Great deodorant!

I’ve tried many natural deodorants with mixed results. The Apothekari deodorant works GREAT, even when doing intense workouts. I also like the scent of all of the products. The skin of my underarms seems to have improved texture as well. I will definitely repurchase.

It works wonders! But strong scent...

This is the first and only natural deodorant that has kept me fresh for more than 6 hours. I put it on at night after my shower and it keeps me Oder free for around 12 hours. LUMÉ couldn’t do that for me! I wouldn’t buy this particular scent again though, I thought it would have a nice balance between the Neroli and Rose, but I cannot smell Rose at all - in my opinion it comes off smelling very manly. Next time I will order the lavender and bergamot scent.

The deodorant is great, gently shake and roll on. It’s very watery so I rub my arms back and forth to get it applied everywhere and then wait for a second in front of the fan before putting on a shirt. But it sooo worth it!!! Amazing deodorant and no rashes! My skin feels healthy. I have been using it for about a month.

Game Changer!

I've tried prescriptions and other products that claim to help with vaginal dryness and none compare to this product. So natural and no added hormones or perfumes. A real game changer for me! Also BEST name for this!
