We all know that vitamins are good for our skin, but what exactly do they do? This week we’re shedding light on one vitamin in particular: Vitamin E.

Read below as we discuss what Vitamin E is, its skin care benefits and share some of our favorite products with this beneficial ingredient.

What is Vitamin E?

In 1936, Vitamin E was biochemically characterized and named tocopherol.2

The name that you will see on many of your skin care and cosmetic products today might be its chemical name, Tocopheryl acetate.

Vitamin E is a fat-soluble antioxidant that is essential for the maintenance of healthy skin. ¹

Vitamin E is normally provided to the skin through the sebum. Topical application can also supply the skin with vitamin E and may provide specific Vitamin E forms that are not available from the diet. ¹ 

The Skin Benefits of Vitamin E:

In skin care, Vitamin E is an antioxidant superstar. What does this mean exactly?

According to sources, Vitamin E helps to protect the skin and may prevent damage induced by free radicals and reactive oxygen species. ¹  

This includes skin damage from the sun’s harmful light (UV radiation) and pollution.

Both free radicals and reactive oxygen specials can lead to skin damage in the form of early signs of aging, such as wrinkles, giving Vitamin E antiaging benefits as well.
