What You'll See On The Ingredient List
Tocopherol (Vitamin E)
Why Your Skin Needs It
Vitamin E is an antioxidant and an extremely hydrating molecule. It works as a both a humectant (to absorb water into the skin) and an emollient (to trap water in the skin).
Vitamin E is a key ingredient found in many of our products. Ultimate Hydration and Ultimate Calming products use Vitamin E to maximize water absorbtion and retention.
What Dermatologists Say
"Topical vitamin E provides two benefits," explains Loretta Ciraldo, M.D., a Miami-based board-certified dermatologist. "As an antioxidant, vitamin E combats free-radical damage," she says, "but unlike most other antioxidants, vitamin E is also a very hydrating molecule since it works as both a humectant (to absorb water into the skin) and an emollient (to trap water in the skin)."
