Vitamin E is an ingredient frequently found in hair and skincare products. However, its most important use is as a vitamin that the human body’s organs need in order to function properly. Most vitamin E is in the form of “gamma-tocopherol” from soybean oil. This is the kind of Vitamin E that Sainte Nel uses in its products.
So does that mean using our products is a replacement for taking Vitamin E vitamins. NO! Multiple studies have shown that you cannot get vitamins through topical cosmetics. So, keep eating your nuts and green leafy veggies. Please. Then does that mean its useless for Sainte Nel to use Vitamin E? Again NO!
Vitamin E has other uses which make it great for cosmetics. For us, we care that Vitamin E is an antioxidant. That means it calms down inflammation and promotes skin repair. THIS is why we use it. To help keep your cuticle and nail beds inflammation free and to assist your skin with healing itself from hangnails and other small injuries to our hands and feet.
