Pourquoi retrouve-t-on de la vitamine E dans de nombreux produits cosmétiques ? Essentielle au fonctionnement de votre organisme, la vitamine E est vitale pour son action antioxydante, anti-âge, hydratante et conservatrice

Vitamin E

Produced by our body, we also find vitamin E in our food and our cosmetics. Also called tocopherol, it has an essential role for our skin and our body. So what are the benefits of vitamin E?


What is vitamin E?

Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin: it is therefore stored in fats in the body. Among 8 different versions of vitamin E, alpha-tocopherol is the richest in antioxidants : it is therefore the most used in cosmetics. If we find it so often in our products, it is because it has, depending on its concentration, an anti-aging, antioxidant or natural preservative action.

Despite the fact that it is essential for the proper functioning of the body, our body does not produce enough of it. This is why food is our main source of vitamin E: vegetable oils such as olive or argan oil, cereals, green vegetables, fish, etc.

Vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant

Vitamin E mainly serves to protect the body from oxidation. It is used to fight against sun damage, to soothe inflammatory reactions and slow down skin aging . As the skin is protected from oxidative stress, vitamin E helps keep the skin more supple and softer for longer.

Unlike retinols , vitamin E slows skin aging upstream: a powerful antioxidant, it protects the skin from free radicals, responsible for oxidative stress. It also works extremely well with other active ingredients: vitamin C stimulates the production of vitamin E in the body and thus improves oxidative protection.

Vitamin E is found in many of our products, such as our moisturizing cream: fluid or rich , you can choose the texture suited to your skin type.

An ally for the skin


Vitamin E also helps keep skin hydrated: occlusive, it strengthens the hydrolipid barrier to reduce transepidermal water loss . Vitamin E also stimulates skin microcirculation to help cell renewal and reduce dull complexion .

Furthermore, it is often found in concentrations of 0.1%: it then demonstrates a role as a preservative in the formulas of your cosmetics. Its preservative action is purely based on its antioxidant action: like a yellowing apple, vitamin E prevents the oxidation of formulas and contributes to their stability.
