    @MarkBroussard So if i add %10 tocopheryl acetate in a Product it would be like %0.6 tocopherol. Am i correct?

    Of course, if consumers can't really tell any difference you still get the marketing benefits from having Vitamin E on your package without the cost or stability issues of tocopherol!

    @Perry i wanted to use it for skin benefit, not just claim. Looks i should go to tocopherol.
