Natural Soap rich in Vitamin E

Vitamin E is present in some of the most expensive products in cosmetics, and Skin Salve Natural Soap.

Vitamin E or tocopherol is an antioxidant and skin conditioner. It is found naturally in coconut oil and tallow (the key ingredients in our Soap).

Vitamin E in coconut oil

Another aspect of coconut oil's ability to prevent wrinkles lies in its high value of vitamin E. Vitamin E is packed with powerful antioxidant properties, that acts as a barrier between your skin and oxidation from the environment.

Vitamin E in tallow

Tallow is nourishing and high in vitamins like A, D, E, and K. Vitamin E is especially important for ageing skin since it has potent antioxidative properties that protect the skin cells from damaging UV light and reduce existing damage.

Vitamin E benefits for the skin

Nivea [1] lists 7 benefits for your skin from Vitamin E:

  • Strengthens your skin barrier, allowing your skin to retain water and stay hydrated. This can also help minimise sensitivity.
  • Moisturising thorough a stronger skin barrier. This is especially important with very dry skin, or during colder and drier months.
  • Antioxidant properties are found in Vitamin E, they help prevent damage caused by free radicals. Antioxidants also help boost your skin glow - it prevents the oxidisation of oil on your face, which can help minimise blackheads. Vitamin E products can protect your skin, and even help smooth out fine lines that were previously caused by these pesky free radicals.  
  • Reduces hyperpigmentation
  • Protects from UV exposure by absorbing UVB light (this won’t protect you from all the sun’s rays and we strongly recommend following advice from experts on protecting yourself from the sun).
  • Fades acne scarring - because of its moisturising properties and its ability to help repair and protect the skin barrier, Vitamin E products are often used to help fade acne scarring. 
  • Boosts cell turnover and regeneration by bringing new cells to the surface faster, speeding up healing, turnover and regeneration.

Is Vitamin E safe in soap?

Yes. Vitamin E bears the EWG VERIFIED® [2] mark, meaning that the product meets EWG’s strictest standards for health and safety. It avoids any of the ingredients on EWG’s “Unacceptable List” and is deemed as safe.


Overall, Vitamin E is a widely used ingredient in the personal care industry. It’s used in some of the most expensive cosmetic products in the world because of its skin benefits. These qualities make the Skin Salve Natural Soap great for everyday use and ideal for helping repair and protect damaged skin for conditions such as eczema.
