SHANGHAI—Cactus Botanics is now offering astaxanthin raw material, a potent antioxidant.

"Astaxanthin supports a healthy oxidative balance, which leads to better overall health," said Carol Cheow, general manager of Cactus Botanics. "Our astaxanthin is 550-times more powerful than vitamin E and 11-times more powerful than beta-carotene at neutralizing singlet oxygen."

Cactus Botanics will offer the algae-extracted ingredient in powder and oil forms.

Earlier this year, Cactus Botanics started offering chondroitin sulfate, which helps relieve the symptoms of osteoarthritis (OA).
