Vitamin E is a real radical killer and, packed in a cream, can protect the skin from the outside against free radicals - and thus also against premature aging. Free radicals are created in normal metabolism - and the more so the older we get. They can damage healthy skin or connective tissue cells. But vitamin E can do a lot more:
It is a very good moisture binder in the skin and thus helps to iron out wrinkles caused by dryness. It has anti-inflammatory effects and even protects a little from the sun. Of course, numerous skin and nutritional supplement products from Déesse also contain a wide variety of vitamins that are required, for example, to protect and regenerate cells that are good for skin and hair or strengthen connective tissue.
