I hope your holidays are going well.
I did a knockout experiment on a leave-in conditioner I was working on and found tocopherol to be the culprit for creating a greasy film when added at .1%. I tried incorporating tocopherol in the hot oil phase and also tried it in the cool down phase and got the same filmy result.
I purchased the vitamin E T-50 from Wholesale Supplies Plus, so I am not sure the purity is the problem.
Are there any other antioxidants I can use to preserve the oils in my formulations? I read on one of the posts here that tocopheryl acetate does not have any antioxidant properties and is mainly used for claims. Any suggestions will be much appreciated.
