Scientific Name: {Tocopherol}
Common Name: {Vitamin E}

Vitamin E has long been known to be good for the skin. It is an antioxidant. It helps to build new collagen deposits, revs up cell production, and regulates moisture production.

As an antioxidant, it can help to neutralize free radicals. Free radicals enter the skin either through too much sun exposure or environmental pollutants. Cosmetics with chemical fillers contain substances that generate free radicals when applied to the face. The effect of these free radicals is premature signs of aging, precisely, fine lines and wrinkles. Some women may even experience extra-dry skin. Vitamin E is absorbed into the deepest layer, helping the cells from the harmful effects of these free radicals. Keeping your complexion healthy and lessen the appearance of the signs of aging.

Beneficial nutritive properties

With its healthful properties, natural vitamin E plays a two-fold role in reducing wrinkles. By boosting blood flow, this ingredient improves the skin’s ability to grow its collagen. Improving the structure in the dermis that keeps it looking plump and firm. As we age, premature aging breaks down collagen. Resources become depleted. The skin cannot replace it. An application of natural Vitamin E gives the skin the ability to restore these structures.

Our skin may have improper moisture levels from the time we are young children. As teenagers and mature women, they will likely experience either too oily or too dry skin. Both of these are symptoms of the same problem: the skin does not know how much moisture it needs. Often, your face will sense that it is too dry. It will produce far too much moisture to relieve this condition. On the other hand, skin can also detect when it is too oily and react by ceasing oil production altogether. Both of these conditions signify that the cells are not retaining moisture accurately.

Vitamin E helps cells retain the moisture that is created. Our cells benefit by appearing fuller and firmer. Hydration can improve both oily, greasy, or dry, flaky skin. When added to a moisturizer, it can help that moisturizer be properly absorbed. Thus, allowing the skin to hold onto it instead of allowing it to be fade away.
