Vitamin E Acetate
CAS No. 7695-91-2; 58-95-7


DL-Alpha tocopheryl acetate, or Vitamin E Acetate, is the stable form of Vitamin E most often used in cosmetic formulations for its skin care benefits. Vitamin E protects cell membranes from damage by oxygen free radicals.  It can prevent premature aging of the skin induced by UV irradiation and lipid peroxidation.

Tocopherols and tocotrienols can rapidly scavenge lipid peroxyl free radicals by acting as chain breaking antioxidants, thus preventing them from reacting with other lipids. This process is key to limiting the propagation of lipid peroxidation in membranes. It should be noted that tocopherol has the potential to act as a pro-oxidant rather than an anti-oxidant when co-antioxidants like vitamin C are not available to neutralize the tocopherol radical and when oxidative stress is mild.  

Naturally occurring vitamin E can be unstable in skin care formulations.  Alpha Tocopherol is susceptible to UV irradiation, being rapidly converted to tocopheroxy radicals that use up other anitoxidants.  Use of Vitamin E Acetate, an ester of alpha tocopherol helps overcome this limitation.  Tocopheryl acetate is bioconverted to its biologically active form, vitamin E, within the skin when applied topically.  Studies show that topical use of tocopherol and alpha tocopheryl acetate are more effective than dietary supplementation in increasing the vitamin E content of the skin.

Supported by numerous studies over the past few years, Vitamin E Acetate has been shown to increase the enzyme activity in the skin, prevent free radical induced skin damage, increase epithelisation of surface wounds and increase the moisturisation of the horny layer.

Xanthan gum soft is just simply amazing for skin care, no slimy feel even at high concentrated use.
I have thrown out some of the ones I have acquired in the past.

Kimberly

Hello, I am from Malaysia. This is my third time here to buy raw materials, although each need to wait long times. But I liked the material purchased from here, its helping me make a lot product that I want. I will continue to buy, hoping to provide more recipe. I learned more products, thank you. [Lotioncrafter note: While we ship quickly, we have no control over the length of time it takes international shipments to be delivered once they leave our hands!]
june lim, (derwent beauty)

LotionCrafter is hands-down the best DIY cosmetic ingredient supplier in the market! They were the first merchant I tried when I ventured into DIY formulating, and they still remain my favorite today! Absolutely no one can beat their superior inventory of products - difficult to find functionals, antioxidants, rare actives, emollients/humectants for every skin type, copycat formula recipes of prestige cosmetics, etc - and their prices are so affordable! I love that they offer smaller sizes to allow trial. I also find the "how-to" information/details they provide on each product to be extremely thorough and helpful (such a valuable thing for newbies like me). And the staff is always polite to respond via email with specific formulating/questions. Love love love!
