Vitamin E - alkmene


What effect does vitamin E have on the skin?

The active ingredient vitamin E has antioxidant properties that protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals.

It helps to moisturize the skin and contributes to improving the skin’s appearance.

Vitamin E is a natural, fat-soluble vitamin found primarily in vegetable oils such as sunflower oil, rapeseed oil and olive oil. We often rely on vitamin E in our everyday lives, for example when it comes to nutrition. A deficiency manifests itself in tiredness and weakness. But vitamin E also has an effect on the skin, which is why it is often used in cosmetic products.

As a so-called antioxidant, it not only helps to preserve natural oils such as our olive oil, but also has a positive effect on the skin. Our skin is exposed to many environmental influences every day. Sunlight, with its harmful UV rays, is one of them. This results in skin ageing and damaged skin.

As an antioxidant, vitamin E can scavenge radicals formed on the skin by UV rays and thus help to maintain healthy skin. Healthy and nourished skin retains its own moisture better, which improves the complexion and reduces wrinkles.

Vitamin E is an important component of olive oil and is naturally already included in Mein Olivenöl products due to the choice of our Hero oil. With regard to the olive as the main Hero active ingredient, we have also decided to design the boosts around the olive. With our squalane and vitamin E in combination, we are focussing even more on the power of the olive.

The main effect of vitamin E is to reduce free radicals that damage the skin. With healthy skin comes many benefits such as …

  • the formation of collagen
  • strengthening the skin’s natural protective barrier
  • supplying the skin with moisture
  • the general improvement of the skin’s appearance.

Vitamin E is particularly suitable for people with dry skin. It acts as an antioxidant that protects the skin from harmful free radicals and helps to moisturise and soothe the skin.

Vitamin E helps to improve the appearance of scars, fine lines and wrinkles by promoting collagen production and firming the skin.
