Tocopherols: A term used to describe the collection of all the tocopherols in Vitamin E that occur naturally in food. There are 4 types of tocopherols: d-alpha, d-beta, d-gamma and d-delta. Low d-alpha mixed tocopherols are often used to slow the onset of rancidity in fats and oils. Natural oxidants are isolated from vegetable oils and concentrated to contain a mixture of d-alpha (commonly known as Vitamin E), d-beta, d-gamma and d-delta tocopherols.
T-50 is all natural, low d-alpha mixed tocopherols, has 500 mg total tocopherols, and is a brownish-red, clear, viscous oil (color may differ slightly from batch to batch). When you compare prices between the gel caps commonly sold in drugstores and these Tocopherols, pound per pound Tocopherols are a lot less expensive to use, not to mention that you will be using all natural Vitamin E and not synthetic.
At proper usage levels T-50 does not contribute odor, taste or color to the end product. Tocopherols are natures perfect antioxidant. The optimal level of tocopherols in finished products will range from 0.01% to 0.1% of the fat or oil content. Because antioxidants can only prevent oxidation, not reverse it, it is important to add the antioxidant as early in the process as possible.
Tocopherols also slow the onset of rancidity in fats & oils in your soaps & lotions. If you superfat your soaps, then Vitamin E is a must so that your soaps will not develop rancidity in a few months. Tocopherols also help to protect the most vulnerable citrus essential oils.
Recommended usage: 4 drops per one pound of oils in a recipe. T-50 is insoluble in water. Constituents of our T-50 mixture: 50/50 natural mixed tocopherols & partially hydrogenated vegetable oil, mainly soybean oil. May be labeled as natural vitamin E in finished products. Do not refrigerate, store in cool place. Shelf life: 36 months when stored in an unopened container. Per the manufacturer, this product is food grade and is GRAS. We do not sell this product for food applications or for ingestion, we do not provide any type of certification for this product. INCI: Tocopherol.

******The following ARE the ingredients of our T-50:
Ingredients: Fully refined vegetable oil (mainly soybean) and mixed tocopherols (E306), which are permanently exempted from allergen labelling (*see below). Due to the natural raw material and the manufacturing process applied, other vegetable oil constituents may be present.
**Exemption from Allergen labeling:
Fully refined soybean oil and natural mixed tocopherols (E 306) from soybean sources are permanently exempted from allergen labelling according to Commission Directive 2007/68/EC of 27 November 2007 establishing a list of food ingredients or substances excluded from Annex IIIa of Directive 2000/13/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council.
All major producers of natural source vitamin E use the same raw material, vegetable oil distillate, which is a by-product of edible oil production. The distillate comes from a variety of oilseeds. Quantitatively, the primary source is soy. The manufacturer uses extensive purification processes to produce natural mixed tocopherols and natural source vitamin E. These purification processes remove any foreign material, specifically DNA and protein, which might occur in vegetable oil distillate resulting from the genetic modification of soya.
Nevertheless, to confirm the absence of DNA derived from genetically modified organisms in this vitamin E product, the products are analyzed by an independent, certified laboratory using state of the art methods (PCR, Polymerase Chain Reaction) which have been validated in extensive interlaboratory trials.
These tests have proven this vitamin E to be PCR-negative, i.e., free from genetically modified DNA. Still, under the recent European Regulations on genetically modified food and feed [Regulation (EC) No. 1829/2003] and on the traceability and labeling of GMOs and of foods derived thereof [Regulation (EC) No. 1830/2003] these products need to be labeled according to the provisions of the Regulations.
This product is manufactured in the U.S.. All of the above information was provided to us by the manufacturer.
Certificate of Analysis (CofA) and Safety Data Sheet (SDS). We publish on our website those documents for most of our products, some products don't provide either because the product doesn't require it. In this same section where you're at now, look to the tab to the left titled Documents, click on it and that's where you'll find either document for the product you seek. If you do not find the document you require, please email us at email@example.com so we can research further.
BULK ITEMS: When a customer adds a bulk item to the cart, the customer’s immediately shown on the screen how many number of days should be allowed for the bulk product to arrive at our warehouse. If the bulk item happens to be in stock, we’ll ship sooner than the customer would expect. As we emerge from Covid, logistics operations are not yet back to normal, what used to arrive at our warehouse in 3 days now takes much longer. Should a vendor inform us the ordered product will take longer than what’s mentioned on our website we’ll email the customer with the latest information.
EO = essential oil
FO = fragrance oil
HOW PRODUCTS ARE DISPENSED...
Essential oils: in 1/32 oz. to 1/4 oz...amber glass vials with orifice reducers. ½ oz. to 2 oz...in amber glass bottles with white caps and Eurodroppers...3 to 4 oz. in amber glass bottles with black caps and without orifice reducers...7 oz. in aluminum bottles...15 oz. in amber glass bottles with black caps...10 & 25 lbs. in HDPE plastic containers with wide mouths although, occasionally, 25 lbs. may be dispensed in factory-issued metal containers with pouring spouts.
28 lbs. of carrier oils and other liquids are dispensed in individual HDPE plastic gallon containers with handles, each holds the purchased net weight of liquid.
30+ lbs. of carrier oils, other liquids, soft butters, Castile gel and other products are dispensed in plastic HDPE pails w/metal handles & pouring spouts in the lid; those products may remain inside the pails indefinitely when properly stored. After Covid, we reserve the right to use any packaging/dispensing container available to us and not mentioned above because it continues to be difficult many times to restock the same packaging container or material used in the past.
NOTE: An EO may safely remain inside an aluminum container for up to 3 months, but if storing longer than 3 months the oil should be transferred to amber glass. Fragrances and carrier oils up to 8 lbs. may remain inside HDPE plastic bottles indefinitely. If the customer at any time feels more comfortable transferring a product to glass this should be done. ALL PRODUCTS ARE DISPENSED BY WEIGHT, THUS, SOME CONTAINERS MAY BE FILLED HIGHER THAN OTHERS DEPENDING ON THE WEIGHT AND VISCOSITY OF EACH PRODUCT.
Raw materials/ingredients are dispensed by weight. Many customers ask how many ounces in a pound, there are 16 ounces in one pound. These are not fluid ounces, they are ounces by weight.
HOW TO STORE: EOs, FOs and BUTTERS should be stored in tightly-sealed containers away from direct light and heat. Some EOs could be highly flammable, keep away from open flames. Keep all liquids and powders you purchase from Camden-Grey tightly capped and away from the reach of children, the elderly or infirm and pets. Refrigerating butters could adversely affect the consistency of the butter, please join our Forum if you need to learn how to handle, work with and store products.
