Vitamin E is the most widely used active ingredient in Personal Care. Its central role in Personal Care is that of a strong antioxidant, capturing free oxygen radicals generated by exposure to UV-light or pollution and preventing further damage. Generally, the addition of vitamin antioxidants improves the photoprotection provided by sunscreens as a biological second line of defense against UV-induced premature skin aging.
The Vitamin E Acetate form, DL-alpha Tocopheryl Acetate, is extremely stable in formulations and therefore the ideal choice for cosmetic preparations with maximum vitamin efficacy.
The Tocopherol form, DL-alpha Tocopherol, is mostly used to stabilize oxygen-sensitive ingredients in cosmetic formulations, to enhance the shelf-life of the formulation.
