AakoVit E Acetate (Tocopheryl Acetate) is the more stable acetic acid ester of Tocopherol. Tocopheryl Acetate is absorbed easily by the skin, where it is cleaved enzymatically into Tocopherol.
Tocopherol is an in vivo antioxidant, scavenges free radicals induced by UV radiation. Tocopherol increases the moisture-retaining ability of the epidermis.
Tocopherol slows down the photooxidative processes of decomposition in hair pigment (melanin) and hair protein (keratin).
Ideal ingredient to add to sun screen and after sun formulations at 0.3 to 5%.
Stored under dry conditions in tightly closed dry containers, protected from light store at room temperature (1°C to 30°C). Shelf life of at least 3 years under appropriate conditions of storage.
