Vitamin E Based
The second ingredient in my creams, after water, is Natural Vitamin E. These creams are Vitamin E based instead of oil based. The Vitamin E acts as a carrier for progesterone, bringing the progesterone deep into your tissues quickly.
Cosmetics containing Vitamin E have long been used for both aesthetic and practical reasons, including the healing of scars or stretch marks. Vitamin E is used in a wide variety of skin care products due to the fact that it easily passes through the skin and accelerates the growth of cells. Vitamin E creams also have many practical health applications, and are beneficial to the hair, skin, and blood.
Vitamin E can prevent new injuries from leaving scars as they heal, and also allows the skin to retain a youthful appearance. By acting deep within the skin, it promotes collagen growth, increasing the skin's firmness and smoothing out wrinkles. It also can be used to fade spots on the skin caused by sun exposure.
Vitamin E is best applied overnight so it can best effect skin cells and allow them to regenerate. It should be used along with regular, proper skin care and hygiene.
The cuticles of the fingernails as well as the nails themselves can benefit from the moisturizing properties of Vitamin E, which will prevent cracks and dryness, as well as any possible infections from hangnails. The cream can also be used to increase the durability of nails, especially if longer nails are desired.
Lastly, Vitamin E can be used to treat sunburns and prevent peeling that occurs while they heal, if used daily.
