Vitamin E

Vitamin E

The antioxidant powerhouse

The most widely used active ingredient in the beauty industry, Vitamin E has proven antioxidant effects, enhances moisturization and strengthens the skin barrier. Vitamin E helps to counteract the appearance of inflammation linked to oxidative processes through downregulation of its mediators. As one of the most powerful oil-soluble antioxidants and free-radical scavengers available today, Vitamin E plays a crucial role in oxidative regeneration of skin exposed to stressors. Since stress consumes the skin’s natural vitamin E reservoir, it must be replenished for skin health. 

Quali-E: the lowest carbon footprint in the industry

The Life Cycle Assessment1 (LCA) of vitamin E production has confirmed that the DSM production method generates up to 85% less particulate matter and uses up to 60% less non-renewable energy resulting in 74% potential CO2 saving (versus carbide and coal based production) making DSM’s Quali E the most sustainable synthetic form on the market.

  1. Life cycle impact assessment )LCA) is a technique used to assess environmental impacts associated with all the stages  of a product or process and its potential environmental impacts across the entire life cycle (creation, use, end-of-life) by modelling the complete system from which products are derived or in which processes and activities operates.
