Tocopherol (TCP) is a naturally-occurring Vitamin E compound derived from vegetable oil that is essential for healthy skin-maintenance. It is best known for its antioxidant activity providing potent protection for and reducing free-radical damage in both skin and scalp. It also helps defend against debilitating pollution and other environmental stressor that inherently weaken skin. This allows TCP to function as a powerful emollient and skin-conditioner that eradicates grime, dirt and other impurities in the skin.
Tocopherol is the most abundant naturally-occurring form of vitamin E in your body and it is a component of well-nourished skin. It lives in cell membranes and protects them by forming a barrier around cells to keep them healthy and hydrated- inadvertently aiding your skin to remain moisturized and elastic. When tocopherol is applied topically, internal levels of the nutrient increase in the skin tissue.
