They contain vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E and vitamin K as well as high levels of a number of carotenoids. Lycopene is a carotenoid that is found in high levels in the skin of the tomato fruit and is responsible for the red colouring; it is also an antioxidant and has been suggested to protect the skin from UV and sun damage.
