Tocopherol

D-Alpha Tocopherol, or vitamin E, occurs naturally in healthy skin. It offers significant antioxidant properties to help defend from pollution and other environmental stressors. Vitamin E assists in cellular restoration of sun damage and provides healing support for scars or burns. Vitamin E can also boost the effectiveness of other antioxidants (such as vitamin C) when combined, and helps keep them stable for longer.

There are many forms of vitamin E. The “D” indicates that it is a naturally derived form rather than one synthesised in a lab (tocopheryl acetate). Natural forms of vitamin E have shown to possess the greatest antioxidant activity and are therefore more beneficial to the skin.
