Natural Non-GMO Vitamin E is comprised of a minimum of 73.5% D-alpha tocopheryl acetate, an acetate ester of acetic acid and tocopherol which is more stable than non-acetate forms of tocopherol. This natural Vitamin E is clear with a slightly yellow to brown appearance carrying a mild flavor profile and aroma. Vitamin E's derivatives are broken down into 2 groups, Tocopherols and Tocotrienols, and each group has 4 homologues, named alpha, beta, gamma and delta. This form of vitamin E acetate is commonly used in naturally preserving polyunsaturated fatty acids and oils from oxidation, favorably used in oils, cosmetics and personal care formulations to extend shelf life. Additionally, Vitamin E is used in cosmetic formulations for its antioxidant properties that may benefit the skin when applied topically. This Vitamin E has an activity measurement of 1000 I.U.s per gram.
D-alpha tocopheryl acetate may thicken in temperatures below 77 degrees F, or 25 degrees C, and crystallization can naturally occur. In order to bring the Vitamin E back into a homogenous solution if crystallization occurs, it is recommended to heat the material to 120-140 degrees F for a period of time and mix. This is a normal characteristic of the material and can be expected when exposed to cooler temperatures.
