Vitamin E is the most natural and active we have found. The mixed tocopherols are derived from 100% non-GMO sunflower seeds – no corn or soy – and are considered non-allergenic. It is naturally rich in monoglycerides (lipids that act as an emulsifier) and moisturizing phytosterols and squalene.
Although it contains a blend of a little more than 20% mixed tocopherols, we have found this Vitamin E to be just as active as our previous batch containing 90% mixed tocopherol powder in a vegetable oil carrier. This is due to the process of how the Vitamin E is derived. Instead of reconstituting tocopherol powder into a carrier oil base, the tocopherols are derived directly from the sunflower seeds. This means that it still contains all of the other beneficial components found in their natural state, and is in its own natural sunflower oil matrix.
