Cepham’s Luteye combats eye aging and additives with olive oil carrier

3 min read

Commenting on the launch, Anand Swaroop, founder and president of Cepham, said that while there was no better candidate for eye health than proven carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin, his team determined that the best way to deliver an enhanced product was to use a unique carrier.

“We started experimenting with different carriers with a clear objective of keeping the final product free of synthetic additives,” he said. “In this quest, we discovered extra virgin olive oil with oleocanthal provides better stability to lutein and zeaxanthin, and we don’t have to use synthetic additives or surfactants.”

He added that oleocanthal is also known to help with the clearance of senescent cells and promotes growth of healthy cells in the body. As eye cells are among the most biologically active and are bombarded with oxidative stress, removing dysfunctional senescent cells can be critical to eye health.

Eye aging

According to the National Institute on Aging​, ​cellular senescence occurs when “damaged cells resist removal by apoptosis, linger and harm neighboring normal cells.” It is a process that can advance aging, and this process is connected to the progression of age-related macular degeneration and related symptoms, Swaroop said.

Common symptoms of eye aging are dry eyes, eye floaters, wrinkles on eye corners, sagging eyelids, dark circles, slow adjustment to glare and the inability to read small print. Between 40 to 45 years of age, early effects of aging show up in the eyelids, lacrimal system, cornea, lens, vitreous, retina and optic nerve, and these symptoms continue into people’s sixties.
