Uptake and bioconversion of alpha-tocopheryl acetate to alpha-tocopherol in skin of hairless mice.

Abstract

The photoprotective effect of topically applied alpha-tocopheryl acetate (vitamin E acetate), a stable derivative of alpha-tocopherol (vitamin E), and its possible bioconversion to the active antioxidant species (alpha-tocopherol) was examined in skin tissue of female hairless mice (HRS/J) exposed to UV-B irradiation. Our results indicate that topically… (More)
