Vitamin E Preservative T-70 (Tocopherol)
Vitamin E T-70 (Natural Vitamin E) is an anti-oxidant used to minimize deterioration in natural products. Vitamin E derived from natural sources has a higher biological activity than Vitamin E derived from synthetic sources. Our Vitamin E preservative will give massage oils and lotions a longer shelf life.
Vitamin E T-70 is all natural, containing low d-alpha mixed tocopherols, 700 IU per cc tocopherols. Our all natural Vitamin E is a brownish-red, clear, viscous oil. At proper usage levels T-70 doesn’t contribute odor, taste or color to the end product. Just add a few drops of this all natural vitamin e preservative to your lotions and massage oils.
Tocopherols are nature’s perfect antioxidant. The optimal level of tocopherols in finished products will range from 0.01% to 0.2% of the fat or oil content.
Vitamin E is a great preservative, and we add a few drops to all of our massage oils, massage oil blends, lotions, and sprays.
The addition of Vitamin E to a natural product can more than double the shelf life.
Even just adding one or two drops of our Artisan Aromatics Vitamin E oil to a 4 oz. bottle of Carrier Oil, like Sweet Almond Oil, will extend the shelf life of the Carrier / Base Oil for months. Give it a try.
