Vitamin E
What is Vitamin E (Tocopherol)?

Vitamin E is a well-loved ingredient for moisturising skin, helping to improve texture and softness. As an antioxidant, it helps to protect the skin from damage from nasty free-radicals - a big contributor to premature ageing. Found in some of our favourite foods like avocados, almonds, sweet potato, and spinach, it also helps to prevent cell tissue damage by acting as a barrier for the skin.

How does Vitamin E work?

Vitamin E is a fat-soluble, essential nutrient with anti-inflammatory properties. Vitamin E helps support the immune system, cell function, and skin health. It’s an antioxidant, making it effective at combating the effects of free radicals produced by the metabolism of food and toxins in the environment, whilst also reducing UV damage to skin. Because vitamin E helps ward off sun damage, it can reduce the signs of aging including fine lines, wrinkles, and brown spots. Vitamin E is also known as a wound healer.

Who should use Vitamin E?

Urea’s humectant properties make it an ideal ingredient for dry skin.

How is Vitamin E used?

Vitamin E can be found in a variety of skincare formulations, including body washes, lotions, oils and creams, as well as supplements.

Can Vitamin E be used on the body and face?

Vitamin E is relevant to the face and body due to its ability to moisturise and protect against the effects of free radical damage from the sun. However note that Vitamin E is an oil-soluble, which means it's typically a heavier product.
