Vitamin E: 5 reasons why it should not be missing for healthy aging

Posted by Xeno Team on
Vitamin E

INCI: Tocopherol

Effect: antioxidant, supports wound healing, protects the skin's own collagen, protection against UVB radiation, helps to bind moisture

Tolerability: very good

Vitamin E is found in the skin itself and is the skin's most important fat-soluble vitamin. The INCI name for itamine E is tocopherol . Here are 5 reasons why it makes sense to have vitamin E in your skin care routine:

  1. Vitamin E has a strong antioxidant effect and protects skin cells from skin stress caused by free radicals. The less stress your skin has, the less inflammation and aging processes.
  2. Free radicals also like to attack the skin's own collagen, which keeps the skin firm and taut. Vitamin E ensures that this doesn't happen.
  3. Vitamin E also helps the skin to retain more moisture. It improves the moisture of the stratum corneum , which strengthens the skin barrier through cell regeneration.
  4. Vitamin E supports wound healing .
  5. There are many studies showing that vitamin E has good photoprotective properties , meaning it can protect the skin from UVB rays when applied to the skin. Tocopherol inhibits the production of sunburn cells and reduces the damage caused by UVB rays. Vitamin E can help prevent light-related skin cancer. However, vitamin E is not a substitute for sunscreen . Tocopherol does not have the same effect as sunscreen and is therefore only suitable as a supplement to daily sun protection.

Types of tocopherol

Tocopherol is the generic term for all types of vitamin E. There are four subtypes in total:

  • Alpha-Tocopherol: The best vitamin E for the skin because it is the most active
  • Beta-tocopherol
  • Gamma tocopherol
  • Delta-tocopherol: has little antioxidant effect

Mixed tocopherol or alpha-tocopherol is usually found in cosmetic products.
