Everything You Need to Know About Vitamin E


Hugh Lucie


Vitamin E (also called Tocopheryl Acetate) is an antioxidant, which can help to protect the body and skin from environmental stressors and damage (such as UV exposure, smoke, pollution etc) by removing free radicals.

As it is anti-inflammatory, it can help to soothe and calm the skin.

Vitamin E can also help the skin to repair and protect its barrier (the barrier protects the skin against bacteria, allergens and prevents trans-epidermal water loss) by hydrating the upper layer of skin, therefore improving water-binding capacity.

We can say Vitamin E is an all-rounder vitamin, as it can help with skin hydration, as well as helping to protect the skin against sun damage and free radicals.
