I am so impressed that you took so much care to make a
perfect product- Natpro, But then totally disappointed that you put unnatural synthetic dl-alpha vitamin E in your cream.

Please replace it with natural Vitamin E
That's d- alpha tocopherol. Not dl.
This synthetic Vitamin E is damaging for the arteries and the heart, and it may cause a hormone receptor disruption.

Thank You! for Your consideration.

Hi Vanesa Thanks so much for your kind words. I do understand your concern, but unfortunately natural vitamin E does not work as an in vitro antioxidant. It's of course excellent as an in vivo antioxidant. The other natural in vitro antioxidants we've tried changed the colour of the cream i.e. olive leaf extract, or the smell i.e. de-odorised rosemary essential oil, and others. But we've found the dl tocopherol to be very effective and are reluctant to change. The percentage we use is very low and so far there is no evidence to show it can damage arteries etc by applying to the skin. I wouldn't recommend taking it. As Natpro is an emulsion, we needed a lipophilic antioxidant, which the vitamin E is. This is a good article here on various natural antioxidants, but all in vivo. The two commonest in vitro antioxidants are BHA and BHT, both toxic but used extensively in all fatty foods like crisps, biscuits, and most baked goods containing fat. The very latest in vitro antioxidant is autocleaved ovotransferrin, but I somehow think many of our customers might object to having egg white in their cream. The paper was published this month, see here. As this excellent albeit very long paper says "The effectiveness of antioxidants in complex heterogenous foods and biological systems and in multiphase models is affected by many factors. Notable factors include the partitioning properties of the antioxidants between lipid and aqueous phases, the oxidation conditions and the physical state of the oxidisable substrate.", see here. It's this complexity which makes us reluctant to change as we know it works. Take care Wray
