Natural Beta Carotene has been specially formulated to produce a crystal-clear, yellow colour. The transparency of this colour is due to the careful selection of ingredients, as well as a high-pressure homogenisation step to reduce the particle size allowing light to pass through the product.

It is a rich source of Vitamin A, a precursor used by the body in the production of Retinol. Retinol is essential to maintaining good eye health.
