Vitamin E Acetate is an active ingredient for use in natural cosmetic products for skin and hair.
Unlike vitamin E alcohol, vitamin E acetate is resistant to heat and oxygen. It is not resistant to strong oxidizing agents or alkalis because it undergoes saponification. Stored in its original, unopened container at room temperature (max. 25°C), the product is stable for at least 36 months.
