Vitamin E

  • Protects the epidermis from early stages of ultraviolet light damage
  • Increases the efficacy of active sunscreen ingredients
  • Reduces the formation of free radicals upon skin exposure to UVA rays and other sources of skin stress
  • Prevents the peroxidation of fats, a leading source of cell membrane damage in the body
  • Reduces transepidermal water loss from skin and strengthens the skin’s barrier function
  • Protects the skin barrier’s oil (lipid) balance during the cleansing process
  • Reduces the severity of sunburn

Smaller amounts of vitamin E can exert antioxidant effects without the risk of contact dermatitis high amounts present. In that sense, vitamin E can be a helpful addition to skin-healing products.
