I read some posts on here that people were having reactions to vitamin E?

Why? I did some googling but couldn't find anything.

I just purchased a vitamin E oil thats amazing.

It has safflower oil, grapeseed oil, and vitamin E.

I havent had any negative reactions to it, in fact its really been helping with the fine

lines under my eyes.

Should I not be using it?

A lot of vitamin E is derived from wheat germ oil. Many brands are derived from soy. You might want to find out where the vitamin E in your brand is coming from.

If it isn't wheat germ oil, then you are okay. If soy, it depends if you are intolerant to soy.

A few people here couldn't get really well, and eventually found out that their vitamins had vitamin E from wheat germ oil. When they switched brands, or stopped taking the vitamins, they got better.

But not everybody will react to it, only people who are the most sensitive to gluten.

Hmm. It doesn't say if its derived from soy or wheat. Its a product from the dollar store,

I don't even know if the company is in existence anymore as I googled the name and nothing came up but some other unrelated company. I guess I'll continue to use it and see what happens.

I just purchased vitamin e oil to rub on my hand (after carpal tunnel surgery) per my surgeon's instructions. The ingredients contain wheat germ. I have Celiac Disease. is this safe to use on my hand?

I would avoid it.  I am careful about anything that goes on my hands, lips and face that could be accidentally ingested.    Setting off a celiac flare up would probably impact healing from surgery.  Ask your doctor for a substitute.  From my quick research vitamin e does not prevent scarring.  



I hope you recover fast!
