If you make your own homemade beauty products, or use Vitamin E as your nighttime moisturizer to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, you have probably wondered what the measurement I.U. on the bottle is referring to.
International Units (I.U.)
International Units is a measurement used to define the potency of Vitamins A, D and E.
JĀSÖN Vitamin E Oil
I use JĀSÖN Vitamin E Oil. The company has an variety of potencies in many forms. I use three of their oils daily: Vitamin E 5,000 I.U., Vitamin E 32,000 I.U., and Vitamin E 45,000 I.U.
Why do I use three different products?
Vitamin E 5,000 I.U. is great for all-over body moisture. It’s not thick and rubs in easily.
Vitamin E 32,000 I.U. is marketed as a targeted solution. The product is not in a squirt bottle like the others. It has a paddle applicator for a “targeted application.”
Vitamin E 45,000 I.U. is my favorite. In comparison to Vitamin E 32,000 I.U., it has a better consistency, less sticky, rubs in more easily and has the highest dose of Vitamin E.
All three oils have their purpose. I recommend them all!
Stretch marks & scar repair.
