Vitamin E is a natural antioxidant. It has been used for many years in the cosmetic industry. It is used for the treatment of wrinkles, stretch marks, scarring and premature aging of the skin - stimulating elasticity and blood circulation. Its antioxidant properties will help to improve the shelf life of oil based cosmetic products.
Vitamin E in cosmetics may be used:
to apply to lips to stop dry skin and to give a fuller shape
for treatment of wrinkles around the eyes and mouth
for overall face massage to reduce premature photoageing
to give a softer, smoother feel
to massage onto scar tissue to reduce keratisation
for pregnant mothers to reduce stretch marks

Vitamin E, when used in moisturizers, reduces water loss in the skin by up to 33%, reducing wrinkles and thinning skin, and unlike occlusive moisturizers, is absorbed through the skin. More than 40% is absorbed within 16 hours in the tissue below the epidermis. As an antioxidant vitamin E improves the stability of cosmetics and thus lengthens shelf life, d- delta rich tocopherols concentrate has the most powerful effect. The d-mixed tocopherols concentrates are also very effective
