A regular fixture on our mothers’ dressing tables, using natural vitamin E for skin care seemed to fall out of favour for a long time back there, eclipsed by a stampede of new wonder products with long, scientific sounding names and medicinal looking packaging.
Well, hyaluronic acid, retinoids and squalane can make some room because vitamin E is back and it is better than ever, thanks to Dr Organic’s Vitamin E Pure Oil Complex.
Containing high quality bioactive and organic ingredients including sunflower seed oil, this vitamin E serum or oil is suitable for use on stretch marks, scars and dry skin, helping to improve the appearance of all three while deeply moisturising and nourishing skin of all ages.
Suitable for vegetarians and vegans, this oil contains a balancing blend of essential oils especially effective on very dry, uneven and aging skin.
Vitamin E for face and body benefits
An essential mineral for our health, vitamin E is an antioxidant that we take in from the food we eat.
It is found in high quantities in many seeds and nuts, as well as certain fruit and vegetables, among them kiwi, spinach and broccoli. But vitamin E does not just help us from the inside.
Sometimes listed as tocopheryl or tocopheryl acetate, vitamin E is increasingly popular in skincare formulas and is particularly favoured in healthy-aging products and those intended to reduce the appearance of scars, pregnancy stretch marks and uneven skin tone.
Dr Organic bioactive pure vitamin E oil is a rich source of tocopheryl. This intensely moisturising vitamin E complex can help to nourish and regenerate the skin with regular use.
It contains rose oil, rosehip oil and jojoba oil, a balancing blend of botanically inspired ingredients suitable for all skin types.
Rosehip, rose and jojoba: a helpful skincare trio
While rose oil is thought to have antibacterial and antifungal properties, rosehip is highly hydrating, locking moisture in for softer feeling skin.
It also appears to have collagen forming properties and can help to reduce the visible appearance of sun damage, including hyperpigmentation.
Non-comedogenic jojoba oil, meanwhile, offers a range of potential benefits for the skin. Highly moisturising, this oil is also a natural antibacterial and antioxidant, making it a good choice for spot prone skin.
By the same token, it may also contribute to the reduced appearance of stretch marks and scars that vitamin E oil is often selected for.
