Tocopherol, or Vitamin E, is a fat-soluble vitamin. Esters of Tocopherol are often used in cosmetics and personal care products. These esters include Tocopheryl Acetate, the acetic acid ester of Tocopherol; Tocopheryl Linoleate, the linoleic acid ester of Tocopherol; Tocopheryl Linoleate/Oleate, a mixture of linoleic and oleic acid esters of Tocopherol; Tocopheryl Nicotinate, the nicotinic acid ester of Tocopherol; and Tocopheryl Succinate, the succinic acid ester of Tocopherol. Potassium Ascorbyl Tocopheryl Phosphate, a salt of both vitamin E (Tocopherol) and Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid), may also be used in cosmetic products. Other Tocopherol-derived ingredients that may be found in cosmetic products include Dioleyl Tocopheryl Methylsilanol, which is the dioleyl ether of Tocopheryl Acetate monoether with methylsilanetriol, and Tocophersolan, which is also called Tocopheryl Polyethylene Glycol 1000 Succinate. The addition of succinic acid and an average of 22 ethylene oxide groups to Tocopheryl makes Tocophersolan a water-soluble form of Tocopherol. In cosmetics and personal care products, Tocopherol and other ingredients made from Tocopherol, including Tocopherol esters are used in the formulation of lipstick, eye shadow, blush, face powders and foundations, moisturizers, skincare products, bath soaps and detergents, hair conditioners, and many other products. Our vitamin E dl-alpha-tocopherol acetate is synthetic and is not derived from any vegetable source.
The FDA lists tocopherols as Generally Regarded As Safe when used in accordance with acceptable manufacturing practices.
