Dl-Alpha Tocopherol

Hello,

I have a question. Natpro claim it is a "natural organic cream." Dl-alpha tocopherol (vitamin E) is listed as an ingredient in Natpro. From what I have read, dl-alpha tocopherol a synthetic form of vitamin E. How can it be listed as a "natural" ingredient? Just wanting to know.

Thank you!

Hi there Unfortunately natural vitamin E cannot be used as an in vitro antioxidant, it doesn't work. It's excellent as an in vivo antioxidant of course. So all skin care manufacturers who use vitamin E have to use the dl-alpha version. The amount used is only 1% which is allowable under the terms of a skin care being natural. Take care Wray
