Vitamin E: Your Skincare Magic

What is Vitamin E?

On the surface, vitamin E seems like a simple ingredient. It’s a fat soluble compound, which means it dissolves in fat and oil and is stored in the cell membranes of our bodies. Plant oils, leafy green vegetables, nuts and seeds are great sources of vitamin E, and bears a great deal of research proving its antioxidant and UV photoprotective effects in skincare. But once you start digging a little deeper, you’ll find that vitamin E is quite complex. For starters, vitamin E consists of eight different molecules with similar structures, and is broken down into two classes: tocopherols (α, β,  ɣ, and δ) which are saturated forms of vitamin E and tocotrienols (α, β, ɣ, and δ) which are unsaturated. Each one of these eight forms has unique functions, while all being potent antioxidants.

For example, alpha (α) tocopherol is the most predominant form of vitamin E in human skin, fights free radicals and offers the skin protection against harmful UV rays. Gamma (ɣ) tocopherol is also an antioxidant, but provides more anti-inflammatory properties than the alpha-tocopherol form as it has been shown to inhibit the formation of cytokines which are pro-inflammatory biochemicals. 

Beta (β) tocopherol is an antioxidant as well, and research shows that it may increase the antioxidant effects of α-tocopherol. Delta (δ) tocopherol is the only bioavailable form of vitamin E as it enters the bloodstream, and along with gamma-tocopherol has cancer preventative activity that alpha-tocopherol alone does not. 

Since tocopherols were discovered prior to tocotrienols, tocotrienols are not as well studied, but that is changing since they play an important role in skin health. Tocotrienols are more effective antioxidants than tocopherols while also possessing anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer effects. As mentioned above, tocotrienols are not saturated which allows them to better distribute in the lipid layers of cell membranes, protect their integrity, and provide increased antioxidant potency. 

Vitamin E in Skincare

After learning the basic differences of the types of vitamin E, it seemed like a good idea to talk to skincare formulators for their thoughts on what seems to be an incredibly efficacious ingredient in skincare. Toni Ann Barandon, the creator of Naturallogic, is a firm believer in the power of vitamin E and refers to it as a foundational antioxidant since it repairs, protects, and nourishes the skin. She only utilizes broad spectrum tocopherols in her line, so as to reap the benefits and synergy of the alpha, beta, gamma and delta forms. Sunflower derived vitamin E is her go to, as she prefers its sustainability and high quality as opposed to soy which is commonly genetically engineered.

Barandon also knows that many of her customers prefer to avoid ingredients derived from soy because of allergies and the desire to decrease possible phytoestrogen and/or GMO exposure. She also loves using whole sunflower oil in her products because it offers the full spectrum of tocopherols and has a long shelf life due to its high vitamin E content. Earthwise Beauty‘s creator, Ava Zhan, is also a proponent of sunflower derived vitamin E as she has found that her variety, which is unbleached, undeodorized, and non-GMO certified to be noncomedogenic, even in high percentages. 

Other plant oils that are high in vitamin E include avocado, sweet almond, prickly pear seed, argan, pumpkin seed, sesame, jojoba, olive and coconut oils. Cranberry seed oil, another vitamin E rich oil, is the one that creator of Live Botanical, Carolyn McRory, considers her favorite of the lot. She loves utilizing cranberry seed oil because it’s so rich with vitamin E, contains all of its eight forms, and she is able to source it regionally. According to McRory, vitamin E is such a powerful antioxidant that when it’s added to oils, or when it’s already present in an oil in high amounts, it decreases the chance of rancidity and as a result, increases their shelf life.

To clarify, McRory states that vitamin E should not be confused with other preservatives that prevent microbes and fungus from growing in skincare products which are needed whenever water is present in a formula. Nevertheless, if vitamin E is added to an oil blend or a water-based cream, it provides protection and nourishment to the skin while also stabilizing the oils present in the product, a double benefit. It’s important to keep in mind that the stability of a product is multi-faceted, which includes a product’s ability to handle stressors like heat, fluctuations of temperature, exposure to light, and antimicrobial activity. Consequently, vitamin E’s ability to protect oils from going rancid is only one aspect of a product’s stability. 

Natural v. Synthetic

It’s important to keep in mind that reading an ingredient list will not always inform you if the vitamin E in your skincare is natural or synthetic, or from what plant it is derived if it is natural (soy or sunflower for example). It’s also interesting to note that natural sources of vitamin E have provided the most consistent data concerning its superior topical efficacy while synthetic Vitamin E derivatives have limited cellular metabolism in the skin thereby reducing its skincare effects. 

Therefore, if you want the full skincare benefits of vitamin E, trusting a brand’s claims of using only natural ingredients, or asking the brand if they use naturally sourced vitamin E may be valuable information. Some formulators and brands explicitly state the type of vitamin E used, such as Branadon whose labels read “Mixed Tocopherols (Full Spectrum Non-GMO Vitamin E)”. As customers become more savvy to these distinctions and request this information, hopefully more brands will provide such ingredient list details.

What’s Old is New Again

Vitamin E might not be the “new thing” in skincare right now, but it deserves as much attention as the current ingredient du jour. It has loads of research to back up its reputation for being a highly effective antioxidant, with other benefits like being anti-inflammatory, nurturing, and moisturizing. It’s not always necessary to go chasing after the not-yet-discovered holy grail ingredient, because as Branadon so eloquently said, “the magic is closer than you think it is.”

Live Botanical First Light Brightening Oil Serum and Balancing Whipped Oil

Laurel Skin Antioxidant Serum and Unburden Serum

Earthwise Beauty Resiliency Face Serum, Yasuni Balm, and Nap in the Meadow Face Serum

My Favorite Holiday Sales

You may notice a couple things. One being, is that one of the last times I posted was last year when I did my holiday sale round-up, and the other is that I have officially changed my blog name to Green Beauty Trish. I made the name change over on Instagram and on my YouTube channel many months ago, but was reluctant to do so over here. But once I realized that anyone searching for scenthive.com would be routed here, I figured I should keep the new name consistent across all of my platforms.

And I do apologize for the lack of blogging activity. I still love natural perfumes and feature them on YouTube where my product reviewing energy has been focused as of late. Sometimes I do dedicated perfume reviews and other times they make an appearance within a broader green beauty discussion. But you can be sure I’m always weaving olfactory thoughts and impressions into my green beauty reviews!

So now let’s get to the sales that are happening this weekend! These are all brands that I adore and either plan to shop at myself, or have shopped at throughout the year.

Skylar Perfumes. Keeping it musky.

Skylar Perfumes are relatively new on the scene, and worthy of consideration if you are interested in delving into natural perfumes or if you’re like me and have been a natural devotee for many years now but have longed to bring some musks back into your life. Let me clarify though, Skylar is not 100% natural. Some safe synthetics are used, which means no phthalates and all of the fragrances are vegan and cruelty free. So purists might not be fully on board, but if you are open to this brand, you will find sustainable essences, gorgeous packaging, and a philanthropic mission.

Update + Guest Post

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a perfume review, and sadly it’s been because of my migraines. I’ve dealt with them for many years, but over the past two months I’ve had to keep them at bay a little bit more vigilantly which means curbing the sniffing of new perfumes. Thankfully, I find a lot of joy in testing out green beauty products and have been creating YouTube video reviews if you are interested in checking those out. I still plan on reviewing perfumes here on Scent Hive, but if you see a decrease in their frequency, you know that it’s not for lack of love or desire, but for the need of tending to ole noggin.

Speaking of perfume, I am thrilled to let you all know about my guest post over at The Greenly Guide. Keri was so kind to ask me to contribute a piece on my natural perfume journey, so if you are interested in reading it, please do pop on over. Keri’s blog is filled with informative resources and terrific articles including another guest post from one of my favorite bloggers, Claire of Rocks & Salts.

So what perfumes have you all been enjoying lately? I am currently testing beauties from JoAnne Bassett and April Aromatics and promise to get those reviews up as soon as I am able. XOXO ~Trish

Onycha and Seve de Pin. Natural Fragrances from DSH Perfumes.

My husband and I are recently back from The Big Island of Hawaii and while I feel like that island could easily be a second home for me, the Pacific Northwest is where my heart and soul are most at ease. In Hawaii, I indulged my olfactory needs with the Gardenia Roll-On from Enfleurage in New York City. As the name of this boutique suggests, this fragrance is made of gardenia enfleurage flowers, and it is exquisite. But upon returning to the cooler weather, something a bit more PNW appropriate beckoned, and I knew just the fragrances to reach for.

Anna Zworykina Perfumes

When Anna Zworykina first contacted me about reviewing her perfume line I was certainly intrigued by her. She’s a Russian biochemist (a PhD no less) who has been creating natural fragrances for more than fifteen years and I was not previously familiar with her work. Of course I said yes, and if you’re like me and you peruse Anna’s website, or her etsy store, you will see that she has a great many fragrances to choose from and admittedly I was overwhelmed by the generous samples she sent my way. Thankfully, it has been my absolute pleasure to have spent many months with the perfumes of Anna Zworykina, and I wish I could review all of them as each one is worthy of a dedicated review.

Amber Tapestry by Mandy Aftel

The first time I smelled the raw material of benzoin, I was flush with bliss. The earthy vanillic scent wafting from the glass jar that housed pieces of the resin was pure heaven to me. I was smitten. Even though that evening was over eight years ago, I can still recall the interplay between soft vanilla and dark soil and I wanted a perfume of only benzoin. Labdanum is another cherished aroma for me, and I was able to smell its raw material that same evening. Labdanum is also a sweet resin, but it’s richer with a leathery smokiness that begs to be worn on a cold night. It probably comes as no surprise that both of these resins are frequently used together in perfumery and make up the the backbone of amber perfumes, and Amber Tapestry is no exception.
