Sun E is pure, unadulterated RRR-α-tocopherol, specifically extracted from sunflower oil. This oil is a valuable by-product from the vegetable oil industry’s side stream, eliminating the need for additional farming and thereby reducing waste and minimizing environmental impact. Natural vitamin E provides protective properties against aging effects and UV-induced damage. It helps maintain natural vitamin levels ultimately helping to maintain skin antioxidant capacity.

Plant-derived tocopherols typically vary in their composition of α, β, γ, and δ tocopherol. Many plant oils, like soy, predominantly contain non-alpha tocopherols (approximately 80%), often necessitating chemical processes to convert them into RRR-α-tocopherol. In contrast, our Sun E 1000 OC, derived from sunflower oil, naturally contains over 90% RRR-α-tocopherol, eliminating the need for chemical interventions in its extraction.
