Vitamin E (Tocopherols)
Is a super antioxidant that helps repair and protect the skin against free radicals. Free radicals are molecules that cause damage to the collagen, which leads to dryness and the appearance of wrinkles. Vitamin E provides exceptional skin hydration, cell regeneration and healing and is particularly good for mature and/or dry skin types.
Vitamin E also boosts the production of collagen in your skin. Collagen is a fiber-like protein that is responsible for maintaining your skin's elasticity. As we age the skin slowly looses its ability to produce collagen. Using Vitamin E regularly can help your skin maintain its levels of collagen production and therefore reduce signs of premature aging.
