Copherol Vitamin E benefits for skin
Copherol is a natural form of vitamin E that acts as a powerful antioxidant, supporting the healthy function of collagen and elastin so skin stays taut, radiant and less likely to show fine lines and wrinkles. Copherol is one the most essential antioxidants for skin health, and helps support the skin proteins collagen and elastin from damage due to free radicals, which are unhealthy cells that require a certain molecule to restore their health.
If they don’t find that molecule, they ravage cells until they do, unless an antioxidant comes around to donate the molecule, which it can do without damage to itself.
“Vitamin E oil works to block free radicals from the body, which play a large part in the aging process. If we can fight off free radicals, then we can reduce wrinkles and keep the skin youthful-looking,” Dr. Stafford R. Broumand, a New York City-based plastic surgeon, told the Huffington Post.
Vitamin E is able to penetrate not only the epidermis, or surface layer of skin, but also the dermis, or structural layer of skin, where it can do the most good.
With free radical activity slowed, copherol helps skin resist the breakdown of collagen and elastin, the two proteins that make up the structural layer of skin, while speeding the production of new cells. With more collagen and elastin cells, skin is more likely to stay taut, supple and less likely to develop fine lines and wrinkles.
When combined with astaxanthin and phytaminol, copherol is more stabilized and works in synergy to help manage free radicals, support the healthy function of of collagen and elastin and maintain circulation so skin cells have access to more nutrients.
Copherol gives skin the ability to resist the tell-tale signs of premature aging. It is found in Xtend-Life’s Kanapa blend.
Uses of Copherol Vitamin E
Copherol can be used either topically, where it is absorbed into skin cells thanks to a bioavailable delivery system that can penetrate the skin’s surface layer, reaching the cells beneath, or taken internally, where it also helps fight damaging free radical activity.
Source and sustainability of Copherol Vitamin E
Copherol is naturally sourced from vegetable oils by BASF, the largest chemical company in the world.
Based in Germany, BASF has as its corporate slogan, “We create chemistry for a sustainable future,” and does so by sourcing and producing products responsibly, working with its partners fairly and seeking out the best, most environmentally-sound solutions for its product line.
