Vitamin E is an umbrella term for a series of chroman derivatives, also known as tocopherols, and is also one of the most common substances in cosmetic formulations (usually in the form of its acetate esters). As an endogenous antioxidant substance, vitamin E, although it is said to be very low in the skin (about 1.0 nmol/g), plays an important role in the antioxidant activity of lipid-soluble cell membranes.
The research on the external application of vitamin E is not as in-depth as the research on oral retinoids. It has been reported that vitamin E has a good therapeutic effect on skin edema and erythema caused by UVB. The mechanism of action may be the irradiation of a small dose of absorbed light, the scavenging of free radicals and the lipid-soluble activity. However, oral vitamin E did not achieve photoprotective effects. Applying vitamin E to the surface can be regarded as a penetration enhancer, which can introduce effective nutrients through the lipid bilayer of the stratum corneum and change the properties of cell membranes.
Mechanism: Irradiation with a small dose of absorbed light scavenges lipid-soluble free radicals by inhibiting lipid oxidation.
①Increase skin moisture content and improve moisturizing performance;
② Promote collagen synthesis, improve skin smoothness and elasticity;
③ It has a protective effect on UV irradiation and helps to increase the SPF value;
④ Antioxidant effect, eliminate free radicals;
⑤ Help wound healing, anti-inflammatory effect.
