Vitamin E–often referred to as Alpha Tocopherol in skincare products–is a nourishing and powerful antioxidant. However, beyond providing your skin with an essential vitamin and nutrition, it also has many other functions and benefits for the skin. So, what does Vitamin E do for the skin?
First, the skin easily absorbs Vitamin E, which makes it an excellent moisturizer and skincare ingredient. It is ideal for use on areas of dry, rough skin all around the body. It may also help increase the amount of Vitamin E your skin stores–both from topical and food sources.
Secondly, when used with Vitamin C, like in our ferulic acid serum, it can help protect against UV rays and sun damage. This is vital for anti-aging because much of human aging is a result of sun exposure. It may also treat existing sun damage.
Finally, it is a natural anti-inflammatory that may help settle skin redness and even skin tone in some people. This is especially true when combined with other similar ingredients.
