Vitamin E - An antioxidant superhero, Vitamin E is skin’s number one friend, smoothing scars and protecting skin from damaging free radicals. Enhances the protective function of skin and decreases the appearance of lines, wrinkles and scars by keeping cells hydrated. Vitamin E is the most widely used active ingredient in Personal Care. Its central role is that of a strong antioxidant, capturing free oxygen radicals generated by exposure to UV-light or pollution and preventing further damage. Generally the addition of vitamin antioxidants (E and C) improves the photoprotection provided by formulations as a second line of defense against UV induced premature aging.
