&NA; Reports of vitamin E‐induced allergic contact dermatitis (ACD) and frequent use of vitamin‐E derivatives (tocopherol, tocopheryl linoleate, tocopherol acetate, etc) in skin care products deserves further investigation into tolerability and suitability of vitamin E in skin care preparations. A PubMed search was conducted to review the prevalence of vitamin E‐induced ACD. It revealed 931 cases of vitamin E‐induced ACD mainly from one large study. There were no reported deaths and only three… 
Vitamin E contact allergy: a controversial subject.
TLDR
It is concluded that both patients probably developed a true vitamin E ACD as vitamin E exerts an anti-inflammatory effect and is an unstable molecule and its allergic potential change during the time, when ACD to vitamin E is tested a bimodal behavior of this molecule may be expected.
Vitamin E in Atopic Dermatitis: From Preclinical to Clinical Studies
TLDR
This review article summarizes the current available evidence from cellular, animal and clinical studies on the relationship between vitamin E and AD and envisaged vitamin E as an adjunctive treatment for AD patients.
Effect of Oral Vitamin E on Atopic Dermatitis
TLDR
Vitamin E may have the same effect as common treatment with topical corticosteroid and oral antihistamines in improving the signs and symptoms of AD and the quality of life.
Tocopherol Allergic Dermatitis Masquerading as Lifelong Atopic Dermatitis.
TLDR
This poster discusses patch testing of a patient receiving antiinterleukin-17 therapy with secukinumab for seborrhoeic dermatitis and the effects of furocoumarins leading to phytophotodermatitis and burn-like injuries.
Allergic contact dermatitis caused by VEA® lipogel: compound allergy?
TLDR

Compound allergy to a lipophilic gel containing vitamin E acetate and cyclopentasiloxane.
TLDR
An unusual case of compound allergy induced by VEA lipogel is described, where the well-known immunologic adjuvancy property of the cyclopentasiloxane/ silicone may facilitate the onset of the compound allergy.
Patch Testing With Tocopherol and Tocopherol Acetate: The North American Contact Dermatitis Group Experience, 2001 to 2016
TLDR
Positive patch test reactions to tocopherols were relatively rare given their widespread use and when positive, current clinical relevance was high.
Allergic Contact Dermatitis Secondary to Moisturizers
TLDR
Being aware of the allergenic potential of commonly used moisturizers may help healthcare providers when evaluating patients with ACD, and further testing is recommended in a targeted manner when suspecting ACD with negative standard patch testing series or when ACD is refractory to treatment.

Vitamin E: critical review of its current use in cosmetic and clinical dermatology.
TLDR
Although its current use is largely limited to cosmetics, controlled clinical studies for indications such as atopic dermatitis or prevention of photocarcinogenesis are needed to evaluate the clinical benefit of vitamin E.
Adverse reactions to vitamin E and aloe vera preparations after dermabrasion and chemical peel.
TLDR
Patients undergoing dermabrasion or chemical peel procedures should be cautioned specifically against the use of aloe vera or vitamin E topically in the first weeks after surgery.

TLDR
Though vitamin E esters have been widely and safely used for decades in dermatological preparations and in cosmetics, vitamin E linoleate was the cause of about 1,000 cases of unusual papular mainly follicular contact dermatitis and could act in vivo as haptens and/or irritants, possibly with synergistic effects.
Sensitivity to topically applied vitamin E.
TLDR
A search of the literature has not revealed any reports of allergic eczematous contact dermatitis due to the topical application of vitamin E, and it is felt that this is a rare event.

TLDR
Better protection was obtained by using the combination of melatonin with both vitamins, and the role of reactive oxygen species and oxygen‐derived free radicals, as well as potential sunscreening properties of the employed antioxidants are discussed in view of possible mechanisms to explain this elevated photoprotective effect.

TLDR
Mice treated with each form of vitamin E showed no signs of toxicity and had significantly less acute and chronic skin damage induced by UV irradiation, as indicated by reduced inflammation and pigmentation and by later onset and lesser incidence of skin cancer.
PHOTOPROTECTIVE ACTIONS OF TOPICALLY APPLIED VITAMIN E*
TLDR
Topical application of vitamin E has been shown to decrease the incidence of ultraviolet (UV)-induced skin cancer in mice and dimer and trimer products may participate in prevention of UV-induced photodamage.
