An Israeli company has discovered that bottling the beta-carotene goodness found in carrots (and other orange vegetables and fruits) is beneficial for skin and hair. “Yes To Carrots” is a two year-old company, based in Israel, that is now hitting the international scene.
Their secret: a combination of beta-carotene, which is said to have anti-aging properties, and minerals from the Dead Sea. And another bit of goodness: the products are free of paraben, a preservative chemical which has been linked to cancer.
The “Carrot Collection” includes products for the face, skin and hair. Recently the company demonstrated its success by entering the US market; products are being sold exclusively at Walgreens.
A reason to like Yes To Carrots: They’ve started the Yes To Carrots Seed Fund, with the goal of assisting developing communities to have their own organic food source. Donations will go towards buying equipment, vegetable seeds, and irrigation support.
