Reviews
Carla, Many medications can be and are applied topically by prescription. With that in mind, realize that this particular ingredient is wonderful but understand that this is indeed one of those that may create sensitivity with those already using topical hormones or just use sparingly and see how you respond. Sorry for the very late response..... ...»

Im 45 years old; average looking skin for my age. Applied a small pea sized amount of Sea Kelp Bioferment to my face full strength in the am after washing my face of previous night makeup.; let face "dry". Then aplied my foundation as always. Noticed my thick, heavy foundation applied more easily and smooth. Keep in mind this is DAY TWO of me using this. TWO women at work ( separate departments) commented how wonderful my face looked! One specifically came up to me and asked what I was.. ...»

Buy Vitamin E Natural Mixed Tocotrienols For Skin Care

Tocotrienol, a form of vitamin E, is known to be a natural powerful antioxidant that is quickly absorbed into the skin. It reduces damage involved with skin aging that is caused by harmful free radicals from UV light and ozone. Symptoms of skin aging include wrinkles, dryness, hyperpigmentation, and loss of elasticity. Tocotrienol increases collagen synthesis, which improves skin elasticity. It can also “unclog” skin burdened by excessive cholesterol. Toctrienol has anti-inflammatory properties and is able to reduce symptoms of allergic skin reactions. It can also help reduce the drying side effects of acne regimens such as benzoyl peroxide.

Natural Vitamin E Mixed Tocotrienols is an active blend of natural alpha tocopherol and alpha tocotrienol, beta tocotrienol, delta tocotrienol, and gamma tocotrienol.These are NATURAL tocotrienols, they are NOT synthetic.

Key Benefits of Vitamin E mixed Tocotrienols in skin care:

  • Antioxidant [1-10]
  • Sun damage protection [1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 10]
  • Sun damage repair [1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10]
  • Anti-inflammatory [4, 6, 9]
  • Stimulate collagen production [1, 2, 3]
  • Increase skin elasticity [2, 3]
  • Restore barrier function [8]
  • Treat hyperpigmentation [11]

Vitamin E Natural Mixed Tocotrienols

About Natural Vitamin E mixed Tocotrienols in DIY Skin Care

Tocotrienol is a form of vitamin E. There are four different forms of tocotrienol—α. β, γ, and δ. The main sources of tocotrienols are palm oil [α and γ] and rice bran oil [7]. Research shows skin contains 15% tocotrienols [8]. The other form of vitamin E, tocopherol, has traditionally received more attention, but researchers are discovering important uses for tocotrienols. Tocotrienols are more unsaturated than tocopherols [the other form of vitamin E], meaning their structures have more double bonds. They are more compact than tocopherol, lending unique properties. Tocotrienols are easily absorbed into the skin and are more quickly incorporated into cell membranes than tocopherols [2].

Tocotrienols are known to be better antioxidants than tocopherols [5, 7]. Free radicals, which anti-oxidants protect against, cause skin aging with symptoms like wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, dryness, and loss of elasticity. This damage is frequently caused by UV rays [present in sunlight] or ozone.

A study using γ-tocotrienol shows it reduces amounts of harmful free radicals [4]. Studies show tocotrienol decreases free radical damage before or after UV exposure [1, 6]. Free radicals damage lipids, waxy molecules that retain moisture and preserve skin barrier function. A clinical study shows α-tocotrienol reduced levels of lipid degradation associated with free radicals [10]. These lipids include cholesterol, ceramides, and fatty acids that make up the skin barrier.

In a study using human fibroblasts, cells that produce collagen, tocotrienol reduced damage due to free radicals. An in vitro [outside the body] study shows γ-tocotrienol prevents death of fibroblasts exposed to free radicals [3]. Research shows that increased cell death, especially of fibroblasts, is involved in aging.

Tocotrienol was shown to increase collagen [2, 3]. In another study, fibroblasts from old and young people treated with γ-tocotrienol reversed telomere shortening associated with free radicals [1]. Telomeres are “tails” on the end of DNA necessary for proper cell replication. Shortened telomeres have been associated with aging. The study showed γ-tocotrienol had to be applied before free radical exposure to prevent this damage.

Additionally, topical supplementation of 5% α-tocotrienol reduced the unwanted effects of benzoyl peroxide, commonly used to treat acne [10]. Benzoyl peroxide is known to increase the amount of free radicals and regular use causes extreme dryness. Addition of α-tocotrienol reduced the damage due to free radicals. Treatment with benzoyl peroxide depletes 93% of vitamin E in the skin, but addition of α-tocotrienol reduced the loss [10].

Tocotrienols also have anti-inflammatory properties. They are known to inhibit the action of COX-2, a protein that produces prostaglandins, inflammatory mediators [4, 6]. Lipids damaged by free radicals accumulate on the surface of skin. Studies show they increase inflammation, including the activity of COX-2.  Tocotrienol also reduced expression of inflammatory markers. In a study using mice, tocotrienols reduced symptoms of allergic skin reactions, such as itching and inflammation [9].

Tocotrienols may help prevent hyperpigmentation caused by UV light. In a study using mice, tocotrienols, specifically the γ and δ forms, reduced pigment production [11]. Treating cells with tocotrienols before UV exposure prevented pigmentation. Additionally, tocotrienols may help regulate skin barrier function. It is thought tocotrienols can inhibit the production of cholesterol. Cholesterol is important for retaining barrier function of the skin. When there is a large excess of cholesterol, though, it can reduce skin permeability and essentially “clog” the skin [8]. In this way, tocotrienols can help restore normal function and enhance skin penetration.
