    Interesting thing someone posted at Danny's site recently, explaining why the Vitamin E I've been using for a while--at Danny's suggestion--"Unique E" by A.C. Grace is recommended by that company:

    Can anyone expand on the benefits/purpose of supplementing Vitamin E?

    I juts rub it under and around my eyes. Readily absorbed and makes the skin look great.

    Dang, never thought of that. I usually use my wrists, the I take my wrist and rub the sides of my body near my kidneys.

    I like to keep facial skin younger looking. My vit K goes across my forehead. lol. And occasional progest-e to same areas. Usually in some coconut oil first so spreads more thinly.

    Going to try Vitamin E on my forehead and see if it makes any difference.

    Hi Nickje - would be interested to know if you notice any effect of the Vitamin E on your forehead.

    I am always on the lockout for ideas to keep my skin relatively wrinkle free and smooth :) Thanks

    Don't think so as of yet. Started taking it internally now though. Unique E capsules.

    May be duplicate post (can't find first one)....how much Vitamin E daily is a good dose? Can I take too much/upper limit? I would think the 400 IUs may not be enough.....Thanks....

    How are you guys doing this topically? I've just got some AC grace vitamin e and its like rubbing honey on my wrists, doesn't seem to be disappearing at all.

    I would also be interested in the answer to this. I would rather do it topically if possible. The vitamin E in unique-E is carried by glycerin, its all I know.

    I also noticed it's like honey, I don't know what it means for the vitamin-E absorption.

    I use 400IU but used to take 800 for years. Sometime I up the dose. For example the day I had stomach bleeding. If you put it on the skin, only about 10% will absorb, 20% if it's very thin skin and you're lucky.

    I use Unique-E. Somebody in the RP Fans recommended it and we were all using it at that time.

    Regarding liposoluble vitamins, Ray Peat told me that he uses four times the oral dose on skin.

    Wilfrid, welcome to the forum!

    That's great info, thank you.

    Does anyone know why we want to use it on skin and not take it by mouth?

    Hi Charlie,

    Ray told me that it's much safer to use those vitamins ( A and D) on skin rather than taking them by mouth.
    For vitamin E he told me that it's ok to take 400UI once or twice a week because the vitamin E is stored longer in the tissues.

    Wow ok, so we really do not need much Vitamin E at all then.

    Hi everyone,

    I was wondering which supplement is of the 'lesser evil"? I currently have one that's based on olive oil,which I think is the best and loved to be able to maintain however it's also the most expensive and I kinda need to wager.
    So there are cheaper options,but they're either filled with sunflower,soy- or wheatgerm oil.....which one would be the least toxic/damaging?
