More about this product: Most of this vitamin on the market is synthetic (labeled dl-Alpha tocopherol). Ours is completely natural, d-Alpha tocopherol.
The difference between laboratory synthesized vitamin E and the natural form, is the isomer content. Natural vitamin E contains only one isomer (d), and the synthetic variety contains equal amounts of 2 isomers (d and l). The l-isomer in synthetic vitamin E is suspected to be toxic by some experts.
My own personal experience of using vitamin E took place many years ago, when I was pregnant with my daughter. I really wanted to avoid stretch marks, and my skin was prone to stretch marks, as I got them just from going through a growing spurt during puberty.
I heard about vitamin E so I bought some at the health food store in capsules. I stuck a pin in the capsules and squeezed it out, made myself a salve with it, (now I add shea butter, rose hip seed, and everlasting) and began to apply it on my belly every day. It worked so well that I not only had no stretch marks after the pregnancy, but the ones I had acquired earlier in life were gone too–as I had also applied the salve to them! Scarring or stretch marks really can go away, when they have this kind of support.
Generally regarded as safe at normal dosages.
