Because of its ability to quench free radicals, Vitamin E is considered a protector and healer for the body. Vitamin E is an antioxidant, and an excellent moisturizing and rejuvenating ingredient. Studies have shown that Vitamin E reduces UV-induced erythema, edema, sunburn cell formation, and lipid peroxidation. Clinical improvements in the visible signs of skin aging (skin wrinkling) have been documented as well.
Due to its molecular structure, natural vitamin E is much better absorbed in the body. Special transport proteins in the liver tend to bind better to natural vitamin E, allowing it to be transported to other tissues in the body to be used for important functions, including as an antioxidant.
