Keep reading to discover the benefits of Vitamin E and how to uplevel your skincare and bodycare routines with Vitamin E.

What is Vitamin E?

Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin with several forms. The form alpha-tocopherol is the only one used by the human body and is absorbed & accumulated in the body.* Vitamin E also can be found naturally in foods such as avocado, red bell peppers, peanuts, and sunflower oil. In skincare, Vitamin E is usually found in the form of a liquid or cream such as eye creams, moisturizers, serums, or face oils. In bodycare, Vitamin E is commonly found in hand creams, body lotions, and body washes.

What are the benefits of Vitamin E?

In topical usage, Vitamin E is a staple for protecting the skin's barrier, locking in moisture, boosting glow, and reducing signs of aging. Vitamin E is also widely known for its antioxidant benefits that protect skin from free radicals. The stable ingredient creates a conditioning layer in order to protect and seal in moisture, leaving skin soothed and soft and securing around-the-clock hydration. Vitamin E increases skin's ability to hold water and ultimately prevents dry, dehydrated skin. A protected barrier ultimately reduces signs of aging such as fine lines, dullness, and uneven texture.

What skin type is Vitamin E good for?

Vitamin E is good for all skin types especially dry or dehydrated skin since it is a natural moisturizer and skin protector.
