Vitamin E Oil acts as a strong protector against oxidization and rancidity in cosmetic formulations and products, acts as a preservative adding shelf life to products.
Vitamin E Oil serves as a strong anti-oxidant agent, protecting fats from breakdown by free radical chain reactions. Vitamin E is necessary for the efficient utilization of oxygen in the tissues and for the maintenance of connective tissues. Studies have shown that Vitamin E acetate is well absorbed through the skin and shows a great affinity for the small blood vessels or the capillaries.
Vitamin E Oil is a great moisturizer and effects rehydration with a subsequent softening of the skin. This improvement is achieved without a greasy film on the surface of the skin since Vitamin E Oil is not an occlusive agent but penetrates easily and acts within.
Studies have shown that Vitamin E Oil is effective in reducing irritation such as allergic and contact dermatitis and reddening of the skin caused by excessive sunlight or UV radiation.
Vitamin E is used in cosmetic formulations from 0.5% up to 5 %, to be used in the oil phase of the emulsion.
It can also be used in the following with a concentration: in Cream: 0.5 -5 % Shampoo: 0.5-1% Conditioner: 0.5-1 % Nail care: 0.5-2 %
