Vitamin E

Posted on


INCI name: Tocopherol

Vitamin E's main role in skin care products is to prevent oxidation of fats, oils and essential oils, and to prevent free radicals from occurring. It is a thick, sticky oil at room temperature. Dl-alpha-tocopherol is most commonly used in skin care products, however if you wish to add herbs to your products it is better to add a multi-tocopherol Vitamin E.

Vitamin E is fat-soluble and 1% should be added to creams, lotions and gels only when the temperature of the product has dropped to below 40 degrees C, as it is heat-sensitive.

As well as counteracting rancidity, Vitamin E can also be used for the long-term treatment of scars, wrinkles and can be added in higher dosages to healing creams.
