Q: What is the source of the natural Vitamin E?
A: Your natural Vitamin E is derived from sunflower oil. There's no soybean or any other cheap oils used as a carrier for this Vitamin E Oil. The organic Jojoba Oil used in this product most closely matches the natural oils in your skin and is used to replace those natural oils. It also has natural anti-inflammatory properties which helps to reduce puffiness. The organic Avocado Oil contains an ingredient called sterolin which has been shown in studies to reduce skin discoloration from the sun and soften the skin. Lavender and Palmarosa Essential Oils are also used so you don't have to worry about a strong, oily smell. These organic essential oils also give you aromatherapy and calming benefits as well.
Q: Is the sunflower seed oil Organic as well?
A: All of the ingredients in the 100% Natural & Organic Vitamin E Oil are organic. But just to be clear, there is no sunflower seed oil in your blend. The Natural Vitamin E is derived from sunflower seeds but sunflower seed oil is NOT used as a carrier oil. The only organic oils used are Vitamin E Oil, Rice Bran Oil, Avocado Oil, Jojoba Oil, Lavender Essential Oil and Palmarosa Essential Oil.

Most of our clients replace their moisturizer with the Vitamin E Oil and are happy with the results.

Q: A lot of natural oils have a strong, oily smell. What does this one smell like?

A: Yes, your Vitamin E Oil is 100% natural. There are no synthetic or artificial ingredients whatsoever.
Q: This product claims to be all organic, but I do not see a certification symbol anywhere. How can we be sure this is organic if it is not certified?
A: We would be happy to explain this. We have chosen not to have our finished product certified at this time as it requires additional cost to do so and in so doing, would require us to raise the price to you, our valued client, to make up for the extra costs involved. We do, however, insist that our product is made with certified organic oils and certified organic essential oils.
Additionally, your natural - not synthetic - Vitamin E Oil is supplied by companies that each have their own organic certifications and quality standards. We hope to have our finished product certified in the future as we too would love to be certified organic rather than just organic. In the mean time, our clients understand that we only use the organic suppliers for our oils and agree they wouldn't want to pay more for just the certification.
