Hi every one it has been some time since I have had the time to post. So here I am once again. Today we are talking about Vitamin E Oil. I was recently asked what our Vitamin E oil was made from. Humm I was not sure, So I took the time and did my research and asked questions from the company where I buy our Vitamin E Oil that we use in our products.
The Vitamin E Oil we use in all our products is also called Tocopherol, or Vitamin E,
It is a fat-soluble vitamin in eight forms that is an important antioxidant. ... Although originally extracted from wheat germ oil, our natural vitamin E supplements is derived from vegetable oils, usually soybean oil.
Alpha-tocopheryl acetate (ATA) is a specific form of vitamin E that’s often found in skin care products and dietary supplements. It’s also known as tocopheryl acetate, tocopherol acetate, or vitamin E acetate.
Vitamin E is known for its antioxidant properties. Antioxidants help to protect your body from damaging compounds called free radicals. Normally, free radicals form when your body converts food into energy. However, free radicals can also come from UV light, cigarette smoke, and air pollution.
In nature, vitamin E comes in the form of tocopheryl or tocotrienol. Both tocopheryl and tocotrienol have four forms, known as alpha, beta, gamma, and delta. Alpha-tocopheryl (AT) is the most active form of vitamin E in humans.
ATA is more stable than AT, meaning it can better withstand environmental stresses such as heat, air, and light. This makes it ideal for use in supplements and fortified foods because it has a longer shelf life.
can I find tocopheryl acetate?
Cosmetics and supplements
You’ll find ATA in a variety of skin care products. The antioxidant properties of vitamin E can help to prevent damage to skin caused by free radicals from UV exposure. Vitamin E may also have an anti-inflammatory effect on the skin.
Due to its higher stability, ATA is also used in vitamin E dietary supplements. When taken orally, ATA is converted to AT within the intestine. Vitamin E is in most multi-vitamins, so be sure to check how much is in your multi-vitamin if you take one, before adding a supplement.
