Let’s take a closer look at vitamin E and see why it’s an essential part of nearly half of the Potency No. 710 line of products.

What is Vitamin E?

Vitamin E is a fat-soluble nutrient, meaning the body absorbs it. Vitamin E can also be stored within the body like fat and has many reported health benefits.  The Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health says, 

“Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin with several forms, but alpha-tocopherol is the only one used by the human body. Its main role is to act as an antioxidant, scavenging loose electrons—so-called “free radicals”—that can damage cells. [1] It also enhances immune function and prevents clots from forming in heart arteries. Antioxidant vitamins, including vitamin E, came to public attention in the 1980s when scientists began to understand that free radical damage was involved in the early stages of artery-clogging atherosclerosis and might also contribute to cancer, vision loss, and a host of other chronic conditions. Vitamin E has the ability to protect cells from free radical damage as well as reduce the production of free radicals in certain situations.”

You can naturally intake vitamin E by eating a balanced diet. Sunflower oil, soybean oil, sunflower seeds, peanuts, peanut butter, almonds, collard greens, spinach, pumpkins, broccoli, corn, avocados, kiwis, eggs, fish, olives, and red bell peppers are some of the popular foods that contain loads of natural vitamin E.

Vitamin E and Skin Health

The National Institutes of Health says, “Vitamin E is an important fat-soluble antioxidant and has been in use for more than 50 years in dermatology. It is an important ingredient in many cosmetic products. It protects the skin from various deleterious effects due to solar radiation by acting as a free-radical scavenger.”

Oregon State University Linus Pauling Institute says, “topical vitamin E can reduce UV-induced skin swelling, skin thickness, erythema, and edema.” 

Many people suffer from a vitamin E deficiency. An article in USA Today says, “Research shows that vitamin E is one such nutrient that a whopping 88.5% of Americans aren’t getting enough of naturally.” Common signs of this condition are flaky, dry skin and wounds that heal slowly.

  •  A study by Linus Pauling Institute concluded that vitamin E has important roles in photoprotection, anti-inflammatory effects, and wound healing.
  • A study by Cleveland Clinic explained the role of vitamin E in skincare and how to use it to tackle skin woes, such as dryness, wrinkles, and sun damage. It also highlighted the importance of using sunscreen along with vitamin E for optimal protection.
  • Studies highlighted by The Derm Review have shown Vitamin E in skincare products to offer antioxidant and UV protectant properties in addition to being beneficial for the skin’s natural protective barrier.
