Description

Tocopherol (also known as Vitamin E) is a common antioxidant that's found in cosmetic products to help protect the skin from free-radicals and strengthen the skin barrier. It's also fat soluble - this means our skin is great at absorbing it.

Vitamin E also provides some UV protection by reducing the damage caused by UVB rays.

There are often claims that Vitamin E can reduce/prevent scarring, but these claims haven't been confirmed by scientific research.

Tocopherol is a common cosmetic ingredient, with about 29.25% of the products in our database containing it.
