    I understand that using a mixture of antioxidant is always better than using a single antioxidant (correct me if I am wrong)

    However is a natural antioxidant better than a synthetic antioxidant?
    In my formulation now I am using Fortium MT90 (a mixed tocopherol). Fortium MT90 is brownish red thus contributing color in the end formulation.
    Can anybody suggest a mixed antioxidant which is colorless or almost colorles

    Perhaps for your diet a natural antioxidant is better but for stabilizing a cosmetic formulation I would think a synthetic antioxidant is more reliable.

    What are you using the antioxidant for in the formulation?
