Vitamin A normalises the keratinisation processes of the skin. Avoiding hyper keratinisation it inhibits acne. As it promotes cellular metabolism, vitamin A is an active agent for the treatment of aged skin. Vitamin A thickens the epidermis and improves its natural function as a barrier. Vitamin E is not only effective as an antioxidant but also improves the moisturising capacity of the upper layer of the skin, reduces small wrinkles and lines and also has an anti-inflammatory effect. Vitamin E reduces the amount of the UV damaged cells (sun burn cells), it prevents lipid peroxidation, and the premature skin ageing caused by UV-radiation. After exposition to UVB, Vitamin E can decrease thickening of the dermis and its desquamation. Vitamin “F”, the unsaturated fatty acids, has proven itself in the treatment of scaly and irritated skin. Linoleic acid is used as an emollient and thickening agent in cosmetics. There is some research showing it to be effective in cell regulation and skin-barrier repair, as well as an antioxidant and an antiinflammatory. Fatty acids are natural moisturizing factors. Moreover, vitamin “F” plays a role in the health and shine of hair.
