Vitamin E

The oily-moist membrane of the cells mainly consists of unsaturated fatty acids and has a tendency to oxidation, which can lead to premature ageing of skin. Vitamin E, a fat-soluble vitamin, works against this in many ways. It strengthens the natural UV protection of the skin as a strong antioxidant and stops building of free radicals before these can damage skin cells. Further it reduces the transepidermal water loss. Fine lines are smoothed out, the resistance of the skin against damaging external influences is increased.
