I purchased my Vitamin E Oil from Dollar General in the beauty aisle and didn't think nothing of it, but then I decided to write a blog post about it and was force to do some research on it.
In my search I found out there are many types of Vitamin E the one that's for skin care contains Tocopherol. I didn't know that I checked my bottle it contains soybean oil, Vitamin E (Tocopheryl Acetate) and coconut oil. Whew, I'm good!
If the Vitamin E oil label reads...alpha-, beta-, gamma-, delta- tocopherol, alpha-, beta-, gamma-, delta –tocotrienol, and D1 –alpha tocopherol the D1 means that this is a synthetic form of vitamin E. These are not good for your skin these are harsh chemicals.
It has an unpleasant smell I guess it's from the soybean oil, but it is not strong I mixed it up with a little vitamin E cream which has a light scent. This vitamin is great for dry skin, skin renewal, and it nourishes your skin. I applied it to my dry elbows I hate those flaky elbows and continue to apply on my arms and legs it wasn't greasy at all, but you can see the moisturizer glistening on my skin. I'm using it on my cuticles they are in need of repair badly. The vitamin E cream is good but for me it did not moisturize enough this is when I decided to use the oil version.
The Huffington Post has an article of Vitamin E Oil, Why You Should Use On Your Body With Caution in more detail and Love Your Skin Beautiful has a post of Vitamin E – The Dream Eye Cream! the actual Vitamin E pill for your outer eyes.
