Carotenoids are a family of polyene molecules with 40 carbon atoms. They cannot be synthesized in the body and can only be introduced to it in the diet. They are thought to be potent antioxidants and free radical quenchers, and they therefore play a protective role for the tissues where they are found. Carotenoids have been shown to inhibit carcinoma formation in animal models . Owing to their lipophilic nature they naturally accumulate to relatively high concentrations in the SC, where they are thought to play a protective role from sun-induced oxidative stress. Their accumulation in the SC also makes them suitable targets for noninvasive detection.
