i can't tell if they added the vitamin E. the brand is Aura Cacia. if they added it, i don't want it unless it's necessary for preservative purposes or something.

and the lady in the store was telling me there was "one oil for outside, one for inside". i don't believe this, as people have posted here forever that they use the edible stuff on their face.

would i be better off just getting the edible stuff?

thanks.

No problem withe the vit E. It's often added to oils like avo and emu as an antioxidant. In theory it helps shelf life though I remember reading somewhere that it doesn't really make much difference. Either way it will do your skin nor your insides any harm at all. More likel;y benefit them! Smile

but make sure it is natural vitamin E (tocopheryl), not tocopheryl "acetate" which I believe is synthetic. Why bother with a natural avocado oil when there is a synthetic in there, right? But I am no expert. So don't quote me on this.

actually, my lips once inflated from vitamin E oil, but they were hypersensitive from a chemical burn at the time. and i want the avocado oil for my lips, so i'm being cautious. i bet i am over the vitamin E sensitivity, who knows.

anyway, i'm living proof that one (or perhaps just i) can react to anything. Smile i also got ill years ago after taking vitamin E internally, but i took a few supplements that day and am not sure which one or what combo did it. i'm sure naturally-occurring vitamin E is fine for me.

so i like to keep my skin and supplement stuff simple and separated so i know how i react to everything. i know that's not always possible, nor does it mean i will react to synergistic combinations of ingredients which happen to include one i thought i was sensitive to.

i'm just gonna keep it simple and go get the edible kind!
