Anti-Aging Skin Care Bonuses of Organic Palm Oil- Part II

In Part I of this Blog Post, we talked about how toctrienols have been proven to be very effective in preventing aging and damage from free radicals.  In addition, the natural amounts of Vitamin E in Organic Palm Oil is very high.  Recent studies in Malaysia have shown it to be a strong and effective treatment for common skin complaints like acne, eczema and dermatitis. 
Vitamin E is also a powerful anti-oxidant, and is used in many natural skin care products for that reason.  It easily destroys free radicals generated in the environment.  Some of these free radicals include those made by pesticides, UV radiation, traffic fumes and pollution.
Surprisingly, and more than likely, the most powerful benefit of using Organic Palm Oil in skin care is that toctrienols have been found to be effective in prevention of skin cancers!  Skin lipids can be damaged or oxidized by ozone exposure, which then can cause free-radicals to be generated in our skin. Organic Palm oil not only fights free-radicals, it can also prevent them from occuring in the first place.  

Research has shown that Oxidation of lipids in the skin causing free-radicals is an underlying cause of many skin diseases, including skin cancers.  According to Dr. Betty Kamen, PhD, toctrienols have been proven to be 40-60 times more effective than common tocopherols in preventing lipid pre-oxidation, and so also that more powerful in preventing skin cancers.
