Tocopheryl Acetate is a form of Vitamin E, a natural skin-conditioning agent and antioxidant. It is the ester of Acetic Acid and Tocopherol and is often used as an alternative to pure Tocopherol (or undiluted Vitamin E) because it is considered more stable and less acidic. It can be fond in vegetable oils, dairy products, meat, eggs, cereals, nuts, and leafy green and yellow vegetables.
Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin-E)'s Benefits for Skin
As a known antioxidant, anti-aging agent, moisturizer, anti-inflammatory, with enhanced SPF properties, Tocopherol Acetate is valued both as a dietary supplement and skincare active. It is used in a variety of cosmetic and personal care products, including lipstick, eye shadow, blushers, face powders and foundations, moisturizers, skin care products, bath soaps and detergents, and hair conditioners.
Tocopheryl Acetate enhances the efficacy of active sunscreen ingredients, reduces the formation of free radicals from exposure to UV rays, and promotes the healing process. It also strengthens the skin's barrier function, protects the skin barrier's lipid balance, and reduces transepidermal water loss.
