Tocopherol, or Vitamin E, is a fat-soluble vitamin in eight forms that is an important antioxidant.
Vitamin E is often used in skin creams and lotions because it is believed to play a role in encouraging skin healing and reducing scarring after injuries such as burns.
In foods, the most abundant sources of vitamin E are vegetable oils such as palm oil, sunflower, corn, soybean and olive oil.
Nuts, sunflower seeds, seabuckthorn berries, and wheat germ are also good sources.
Other sources of vitamin E are whole grains, fish, peanut butter, and green leafy vegetables.
Fortified breakfast cereals are also an important source of vitamin E in the United States.
Although originally extracted from wheat germ oil, most natural vitamin E supplements are now derived from vegetable oils, usually soybean oil.
