THE POWER OF VITAMIN E COMPLEX

- A scientific explanation

Not many people know the difference between traditional vitamin E [tocopherol] and the vitamin E complex [tocopherols & tocotrienols]. The biggest difference is that the vitamin E, which can only be obtained as a natural substance, 40-60 sometimes has a more effective antioxidant effect on the cell membrane than conventional vitamin E. Here you will find more details:

THE POWER OF VITAMIN E COMPLEX

- A scientific explanation

Not many people know the difference between traditional vitamin E [tocopherol] and the vitamin E complex [tocopherols & tocotrienols]. The biggest difference is that the vitamin E, which can only be obtained as a natural substance, 40-60 sometimes has a more effective antioxidant effect on the cell membrane than conventional vitamin E. Here you will find more details:

CONVENTIONAL VITAMIN E

Only one isomer:
α-tocopherol

Mostly of synthetic origin
In high dosage pro-oxidative

Saturated side chains
· Bad binding of free radicals
· Not able to penetrate the cell membrane

VITAMIN E COMPLEX

All eight isomers:
α-β-γ-δ tocopherol α-β-γ-δ tocotrienol
· Only the combination of all eight isomers unfolds the full effect

From natural source
As an antioxidant, α-tocotrienol 40-60 is stronger at the cell membrane than α-tocopherol

Unsaturated side chains
· Strong binding of free radicals
· High mobility, able to penetrate the cell membrane.

α-tocopherol

WHAT DOES IT MEAN FOR THE SKIN?

SKIN CARE & CELL STRESS

The skin is the largest organ of the human body and consists of about 3 million cells per cm2.

These cells can be attacked by free radicals. Free radicals are caused by several factors:

· Environmental influences (UV light, infrared radiation, air pollution)
· Autoimmune processes
· Consumption of alcohol, tobacco and unhealthy food

If these free radicals are not bound by an antioxidant and transported away, oxidative stress can lead to premature aging of the cell.

Tocotrienols are particularly effective against premature aging because they can penetrate the cell membrane and act directly in the cell.

WHERE DOES THE TOCOTRIENOL COME FROM?

The tocotrienol palm fruit extract is obtained from the red palm fruit (Elaeis Guineensis).

Although there are other sources of tocotrienols, these do not provide the ideal spectrum and ratio of different vitamin E isomers.

There are: α-β-γ-δ tocotrienol & α-β-γ-δ tocopherol. While most vitamin E products are strictly synthetic α tocopherol, our vitamin E complex has a particularly high γ & δ tocotrienol.

Our Tocotrienol suppliers undertake to use, in addition to the RSPO certificates, ingredients from farms that have existed for at least 30 years.

AND THE ORANGE?

We care about the environment as much as you do. TocoCare products use EVNol from ExcelVite. ExcelVite supports the production of certified sustainable palm oil through the use of GrennPalm certificates. In addition, ExcelVite is a member of RSPO, promoting and supporting the sustainable cultivation of palm oil. Do you have any further questions? We like to come with you into the conversation.
"I tried the face elixir for a couple of days. I still have my laughing wrinkles, which is actually more than fine for me, but the oil is definitely calmed down the dry and itchy parts of my face. The smell is very decent and a few drops are enough to wake up with a really nice glow! "
