Tocopherol - Vitamin E

Tocopherol (vitamin E) INCI: tocopherol Tocopherol, with its antioxidant properties, increases the moisture content of the skin, smoothes the surface of the skin and slows down the aging of cells. Since the vitamin also has an anti-inflammatory effect, it can accelerate the healing of smaller, superficial wounds and scars. Vitamin E as a skin protection vitamin neutralizes free radicals in the skin that are caused by UV light, smoking, stress and other environmental influences. These can destroy the DNA, the structure of the cells and also vital proteins in the human body. Vitamin E (tocopherol) cannot be produced by our body itself, so it has to be taken in through food. Food such as nuts or vegetable oils have a particularly high proportion, as do grain germs and some types of fish (salmon, mackerel, herring).
