alpha tocopherol vs mixed tocopherol for a vit C serum.

I am trying to include vit E in my Vit C serum.

MOQ of alpha tocopherol is very high, 25kg
but my supplier has mixed tocopherols 95% 
also its said that mixed tocopherols have better antioxidant protection on the formula than alpha tocopherol.
then why is alpha tocopherol used always?

    Tocopheryl Acetate is typically used.
  • Thanks Perry, 
    But I read that tocopherol acetate doesn't offer protection to the formula, it only benefits the skin.
    Hence looking for tocopherol which helps with antioxidant protection for the vit C.
