What Are Those White Beads? On Oxidation, Encapsulation and Vitamin E

by Shermaine Chua 15 Jun 2024

Spot those little white beads in our hydrating Megaboost Hyaluronic+ Concentrate Serum? They’re actually encapsulated vitamin E!

Before we delve into why we’ve encapsulated it, let’s first explore what vitamin E does for the skin.

All the wonderful benefits of vitamin E:

Vitamin E is a powerhouse ingredient in skincare, renowned for its multifaceted benefits. As a potent antioxidant, it plays a crucial role in protecting skin cells from oxidative damage caused by free radicals, which are unstable molecules that can harm cells and accelerate the ageing process. By neutralising these free radicals, vitamin E helps prevent premature ageing, including fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots.

One of the standout qualities of vitamin E is its natural anti-inflammatory properties. It can soothe irritated skin, making it an excellent remedy for conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. Its calming effect can also reduce redness and swelling, providing relief for sensitive skin types.

In addition to its protective and soothing abilities, vitamin E is also deeply hydrating. It works as an effective moisturiser by forming a protective barrier on the skin's surface, which helps to lock in moisture and keep the skin hydrated for longer periods. This barrier function not only helps to maintain skin hydration but also strengthens the skin’s natural defence against environmental aggressors, such as pollution and UV rays.

But the caveat?

Vitamin E is sensitive to light, air, and heat, which can degrade its effectiveness over time. This instability poses a challenge for formulators who want to harness the full benefits of vitamin E.

The solution? Encapsulation.

To maximise the efficacy of vitamin E and ensure it delivers its full range of benefits, we have turned to encapsulation technology and this is why:

1. Improved stability
By encapsulating vitamin E, it’s protected from environmental conditions, such as UV rays, air, and heat, that can cause degradation. This ensures that it remains fresh, active, and potent, maximising its effectiveness when applied to your skin.

2. Longer shelf life
The encapsulation process involves enclosing vitamin E within a protective barrier that safeguards it from environmental factors. This preserves the integrity of vitamin E, prolonging its stability and efficacy and hence, shelf life.

3. Enhanced delivery
Encapsulation allows for the controlled release of vitamin E onto the skin, ensuring better absorption and penetration. As a result, the antioxidant protection and nourishment provided by vitamin E are significantly enhanced.

How we use encapsulation technology in our Megaboost Hyaluronic+ Concentrate Serum

The encapsulated vitamin E is suspended in a serum solution that is packed with a thoughtful selection of natural and organic ingredients to help you achieve clear, healthy, and makeup-free skin.

One of the key ingredients in our serum is Indian gooseberry, known for its high vitamin C content and powerful antioxidant properties. Vitamin C works synergistically with vitamin E, boosting each other’s effectiveness and providing enhanced protection against free radicals. In fact, studies have proven that a combination of vitamin E and C provides excellent protection against acute UVB damage. Additionally, Indian gooseberry helps to brighten the skin and improve overall skin tone.

Another key ingredient is Ferula Assa Foetida root extract, which is renowned for its ability to lighten pigmentation. This extract works to even out the skin tone, reducing the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation from sun damage or acne marks.

When combined with the encapsulated vitamin E, these ingredients create a potent formula that soothes irritated skin, provides deep hydration, strengthens the skin barrier, and brightens the complexion. The result is healthier, clearer skin with a smooth, even, and radiant appearance.
