I just received the vitamin E that I ordered online (mixed tocopherols and tocotrienols), and I found that the vitamin E contained in the softgels was dark orange. This was unexpected, as I had only ever seen clear vitamin E gel before. I made up a batch of the vitamin C supercombo for the first time (from the DIY infopack), and I added one of the softgels of vitamin E, making the cream orange. I applied it to my face, but the cream did not absorb completely into my skin, leaving my face with an orange tint. This made me a little nervous that it might stain my skin, and so I washed it off. Before applying it again, I would like to know whether this might stain my skin. I did a small test patch on my inner arm to try to determine this myself, but I also thought that I would see if anyone knows the answer to this. Could orange vitamin E stain a person's skin? Thank you for your help!

Tocotrienols tend to be darker that regular vitamin E, perhaps that's what seems to be orange.

no, it will not stain your skin, only until perhaps you wash it off. I have extremely fair skin and I use the LEF Vit E caps with Tocotrienols and also I mix carotenoids into my formulas, and although it can leave a orange tint if i use too much, it always washes off.
