Dr.T, I know that you have suggested mixed tocopherols for topical use. I found one that I would like to get your opinion on http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/sol/vitamin.html
What do you think? Also, I have a recipe that calls for 2% of vit.e oil, would that be safe being that this has 10,000 IU's per ounce? thanks again!! By the way, I bought the burdock root a while ago and was planning on using it for its antioxidant properties but was unsure of how much I could use topically. Allyssa

This seems ok although they don't give that much details. Just keep in mind that softgels store better than liquid, so you have to be more careful with storage in this case.

If you dilute this product ten times or more with a base cream, it should be safe for the skin. But unusual reactions are always possible, so be prudent.

That link to the vitamin E oil is not pure, it's in a soy oil base, why pay $12.48 for 2oz. when you can get pure Tocopherol natural vitamin E oils here for $20 for 8oz? Just a suggestion

If 'HPLC 49 -53', means that the % of E in the Tocopherol T-50 is about 49 to 53 %, then the other 50% will also be oil, either palm or soy (the most commonly used ones).

In which case the Solaray is not that bad of a deal, at least it has tocotrienols.

It can be bought for:

$10.44 at springvalleyherbs.com/catalog.php?itemID=630

$8.55 at amazon.com/dp/B00028M8PU/ref=nosim/?tag=nextag-hpc-20&creative=380333&creativeASIN=B00028M8PU&linkCode=asn
