I bumped on a cheap cream with a nice moisturizing base and beta-carotene in it. The claim was the cream has STRONG anti-oxidant properties. The cream is white in color so the concentration of the active won't be high.

Is there any merit in putting beta carotene in a cream? Is the skin able to use it in any way and does it have any antioxidant properties in local application?

If you want cream with carotenoids, lycopene is better. Better yet could be Sea Buchthorn oil, which has a rich mix of carotenoids.
