It is a traditional post-sun soother as its high vitamin E content calms irritated, sunburnt skin while it’s hydrating benefits also help to prolong a tan. The high levels of skin protecting vitamins and anti-aging antioxidants are also a long standing remedy for easing the appearance of stretch marks and scars.
