Derma E liquid vitamin E – perfect to help your skin fight the cold weather!

Derma E Vitamin E Skin Oil 14000 IU 60mLLiquid vitamin E (also referred to as vitamin E oil) has finally been added to the Echolife natural beauty catalogue – and it’s not just any vitamin E, it’s the good stuff: sky-high I.U. and produced by an award-winning sustainable manufacturer with pedantic quality control.

If by now you’re not excited, maybe it’s because you’re not entirely sure why vitamin E is so good for the skin (yes, why?). Let’s remind ourselves.

Vitamin E is naturally present in the skin and helps keep its protective barrier healthy.

Multi-tasking hero: 10 ideas on how to use aloe vera

Aloe Plant - Köhler Medizinal PflanzenWe like to use single, pure ingredients in our skin care routine: it makes sense to go straight to the source and feed your skin with as many beneficial nutrients as possible, no?

And one of these pure ingredients is none other than organic aloe vera gel. It’s a non-negotiable part of our routine and we couldn’t be without it. It turns out, we’re not the only ones who love aloe: the lovely ladies at ‘No More Dirty Looks‘ feel the same way about it (how great is this quote: ‘[…] every beauty biff under the sun could be ameliorated with a little aloe*.’)
