MARNYS® Carrot Oil modulates skin pigmentation to maintain your skin toned and protected from oxidative damage, providing an "everlasting-tanned" appearance and body colour.
The exclusive formulation of MARNYS® Carrot Oil acts as a skin rejuvenator, maintaining its elasticity and hydration, stimulating skin microcirculation and fighting against ageing.1,2,3,4
It combines vegetable Carrot oil extracted from its seeds and roots, with Sweet Almond, Sunflower, Geranium, and Wheat Germ oils, rosemary extract, as well as orange and lemon peel.
Its high tocopherol and beta-carotene content turn MARNYS® Carrot Oil into an essential ally for people who want to maintain and favour tanning for longer. It also favours people who, due to their routine or age, need extra skin care.
Thanks to the synergy of its ingredients, MARNYS® Carrot Oil benefits your skin because it:

Benefits of carrot for your skin
Carrot is native to Europe and Southwest Asia, and belongs to the family Apiaceae. It is a natural source rich in vitamin A along with other essential vitamins (for example C and E). Its root contains sugars, provitamin A, carotenes, anthocyanidins, chlorogenic acid, among others, and its seeds contain terpenes and phenylpropanoids (carotol, geranyl, sabinene and eugenol). This unique combination of ingredients makes that Carrot oil exerts antioxidant activity and modulates skin tone, contributing to good skin colour and to attenuating the signs of ageing (that is, wrinkles)14
What are beta-carotenes? What are they for?
Beta-carotene is very abundant in nature and important for human diet. They're precursors of vitamin A with antioxidant properties and are fundamental constituents for the skin pigmentation process. They contribute to maintaining the skin healthy, as they have photoprotective effect and uniformly provide a radiant skin with good tone.5

What are the properties of rosemary extract on the skin?
Rosemary extract with its content of flavonols, di and triterpenes, sterols, rosmarinic acid, carnosol, carnosic acid and caffeic acid, make it something very useful to stimulate skin circulation.16,8
What are the benefits of sunflower oil on the skin?
Sunflower oil contains a high amount of linoleic acid, essential for good body maintenance.17
What is geranium oil for?

Hyaluronic Acid is increasingly popular in beauty and wellness treatments. It is a component naturally present in our body, essential to maintain hydration in organs such as the skin and lubrication in joints, bones and cartilages. However, the passage of time and external factors like Ultraviolet radiation and environmental pollutants reduce the percentage of Hyaluronic Acid in our organism.
