Tocopherol (Vitamin E) is a popular ingredient used in many moisturising skincare products. However, few know that Vitamin E (tocopherol) is a plant-derived fat-soluble antioxidant that protects the skin from the harmful effects of free radicals. Free radicals occur naturally in the body and can cause harm if their levels are too high⁶. Vitamin E helps to counteract free radicals⁵ and work to enhance and maintain the skin’s moisture content⁷. It also assists in the reduction of inflammation and redness in the skin¹ and minimises the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles⁶.
