This Vitamin E oil is the pure form of oil, a thick and sticky concentrate that contains a mixture of alpha, beta, gamma and delta tocopherols. It is not to be used neat on the skin but is for use when making products such as massage or bath oils, creams and lotions, body butters, face masks, lip balms or any product that contains essential oils where the peroxides can be harmful to the skin. The natural antioxidant properties in tocopherol stop peroxides from forming and make your products much less likely to irritate the skin which is why adding such an antioxidant as vitamin E to these sorts of products and blends is so highly recommended. Vitamin E is one of best antioxidants in oil-based products as it is suitable for preventing oxidation and rancidity in oil-based formulas. It is also an additional preservative system to prevent the growth of mould and other microbes so is needed for water-based formulas but adding vitamin E to any blend ensures freshness and a better quality of end product. The recommended amount of this tocopherol to use in your products is 0.2% so even though it is an expensive oil a small bottle will go a long way. © Please do not copy text- Avena product description- Vitamin E oil (Concentrated tocopherol).
