Product Rating: 4.9/5 (As per 18 Customer Reviews)
MT-50 Vitamin E is a golden yellow to reddish, viscous oil having a slight characteristic vegetable oil aroma. It may oxidize upon exposure to air and light, resulting in gradual darkening. It may add a tint of color to skincare formulations. This form of Vitamin E is GMO-free and gluten-free.
Studies have shown that Vitamin E plays a crucial role in protecting the skin from environmental factors. The d-alpha-tocopherol in Vitamin E is also known to helps reduce the appearance of fine lines. For use in cosmetics, Vitamin E (MT-50 Full-Spectrum) is a natural antioxidant with a full spectrum of tocopherols, which will extend the shelf-life of oils (any product with water in it will require a full-spectrum preservative). Adding 0.5% to a carrier oil will simply extend the life of the oil. To utilize its benefits to the skin, a minimum of 2% to a maximum of 30% is added to the formulation.
Constituents: 50% vitamin E (d-alpha tocopherol, d-beta tocopherol, d-gamma tocopherol, d-delta tocopherol.) and 50% (GMO Free) refined soybean oil.
Solubility: Vitamin E MT-50 is soluble in ethanol, ether, acetone, fats and vegetable oils. It is insoluble in water.
Cautions: Keep tightly closed in a cool, dark, dry, area as Vitamin E is subjected to oxidization.

Rating: T-50 Tocopherols are a great product for extending the shelf life of finished products and raw materials. Use about 1/4-1/2tsp (30-60 drops) per pound of rancidity prone oil as soon as received. The tocopherols react with free radicals that form naturally on exposure of fats to air and prevent the process from continuing (which eventually causes the rancid smell and discoloration). Because the tocopherol is used up in the process, it is still important to keep your oils in a cool, dark place and keep the caps on tightly.
If you've had essential oils (especially citrus) lose their smell or go "off" in storage, an identical process is responsible and T-50 added as soon as possible will extend their shelf life.
T-50, however, is not ideal for skin nourishing. The human body only uses D-alpha-tocopherol effectively as an antioxidant and this product is mostly beta, delta, and especially gamma tocopherols. For skin, Vitamin E (USP) is preferred, while this product is more economical and effective as an antioxidant in oils/products.

Rating: I use just a drop of this in a lot of my cosmetic products to help the oils from going rancid. Product has a thick consistency.
By:Aubrey, San Leandro, California Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 16-Sep-2015
Rating: I was very pleased to find a natural and GMO-free Vitamin E to use in my lotion bars and lip balms to extend their shelf life. I like it and will continue to use it, but It doesn't make sense to me that it's an antioxidant, yet the description says it will oxidize if exposed to air and light. I had forgotten about that and left my container open while I was working, won't do that again. The oil is thick and sticky, and it comes in a little jar. Since I use it by the drop, this is a bit inconvenient for me because it is impossible to get my dropper clean.

Rating: Its great that this is on sale now. Vit E is excellent as a natural preservative. I use it in my Shea Butter so that it holds a scent for a long time. It also keeps my oils from spoiling. Great product!
Rating: thick and potent, I add to base oils to extend shelf life
By:Mary, Boulder, Colorado Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 10-Nov-2012
Rating: Great quality of ingredients here at NDA, the Vit E is no exception - may try the other Vit E next time for comparison. Thick, yet pourable viscosity for measuring. It will cling to the edges of containers so you may want to measure directly into your mixing container. But that is how Vit E is. Great final product and added a slightly amber tone to the final product.

Rating: Fair price for what you get. I had mine a while even after using it in everything I make. It is a big selling point in my products. Thanks!
Rating: So far I've only used this in lip balms though I plan to start using it in lotions soon. Very pleased.

Rating: I received this oil a few weeks ago and its so wonderful, so far I have used in my soap and lotion and add it also to oil that use on my face and couldn't be happier with my purchase. Thank you so much for offering quality products.
By:Rose, Saint Albans, New York Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 08-May-2013
Rating: Does this really work in essential oils as well. I have added it to my carrier oils to extend their shelf life. So glad there is a way to do that.
I was using a dropper but on bigger items like the 33.3 oz apricot kernel oil, that took too long. If you pour it slowly you will be able to get the right amount without using glassware.
By:Laura, Batavia, Ohio Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 06-Oct-2011
Rating: I add this to pretty much everything I make and it's great, though super sticky, even after lots of washing with soap. I'm not a big fan of the plastic jar, so I moved it to a 100mL glass bottle.
By:Marie, Calgary, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: You'll find Vitamin E MT-50 has unlimited in usages. A must for enhancing the synergy of vital nutritive proteins, mineral and fatty acids of all your cosmetics. Excellent additive to extend and prevent oxidation in your carrier and essential oils. A little vitamin E is added to nearly every skin product I formulate. This is a must have material.
By:James, Seattle, Washington Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 22-Jun-2009
Rating: Again a wonderful product, thank you NDA for switching over to a plastic jar instead of the glass bottles, much easier to get out
By:Marilyn, Newmarket, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: A 1/4 tsp is all you need to use for a 250 ml container for your lotions, it is very thick and I find I need to take the plastic dripper out to pour, by keeping it too at room temperature helps with the pouring.
keep in the fridge after use

Rating: Beautiful - best deal on the block in vitamin E.
I use this juice in most of my liquid products as a nutritive enhancer and preservative.
