What exactly is Vitamin E and why do most beauty products today have it? According to the experts, Vitamin E is best known for its antioxidant properties. This basically means that it has the ability to help protect vital cell structures by neutralizing molecules called free radicals, which are unstable molecules that come from sources like air pollution and radiation. By nature, free radicals are bad for the body as they can bring about damage and eventually, a multitude of diseases.
