Maximum Strength Vitamin E Oil 45,000 I.U. Pure Natural Skin Oil would be the best Jason Vitamin E oil to consider if you’re curious about what this vitamin can do for skin. In addition to vitamin E, the product contains some very good, nonvolatile plant and nut oils, including several whose linolenic and linoleic acid content is very helpful for dry to very dry skin. Although the label on this clear glass bottle shields the product somewhat from light, it’s best to store it in a dark place to preserve the effectiveness of the ingredients. This oils would actually be best paired with a state-of-the-art facial moisturizer during times your skin feels unusually dry. It isn’t well-rounded enough to use on its own if your goal is skin that looks and acts younger.
JASÖN® Vitamin E Oil 45,000 IU is a Maximum Strength facial treatment that combines Vitamin E Oil with our exclusive blend of 7 essential natural oils, including Black Current, Evening Primrose, Macadamia Nut and Borage. Use at night to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

It may not come as a surprise to those who have read previous editions of this book to learn that the Jason Natural line of products, which presents itself as a "green," environmentally friendly alternative skin-care line in health food stores (its primary distribution point), also includes in its products a majority of ingredients that are decidedly unnatural. Yes, many natural ingredients are included in these products, but Jason Natural is not practicing what they preach by "giving consumers effective, environmentally friendly alternatives to mass-produced, synthetic chemical products." As far as mass-produced goes, Jason Natural fills the bill. The product line has been available since 1959, and is distributed worldwide.
Owner Hain Celestial plans to increase the line's presence by entering new retail outlets, meaning that this isn't a batch of products cooked up in a home-style manner and made fresh to order. And the company uses plenty of synthetic ingredients, including preservatives, thickeners, slip agents, and film-forming agents. These aren't bad for skin; in fact, they're essential to create products people will actually want to use—but claiming they're all natural or purer than other brands is false. Natural or otherwise, many of these products are not only outstanding options to consider, but also exceptional values. Of particular interest are the antioxidant-rich Sunbrellas sunscreens, some water-soluble cleansers, and a few state-of-the-art moisturizers.
Jason's penchant for natural means that several products are problematic due to the inclusion of essential oils (which are really unessential because they cause irritation and often sun sensitivity or cell death), along with other ingredients that, while natural, are not helpful for skin. The company claims that everything they put into their products is from the earth, and that's true. But if you think about it, where else would the ingredients come from? Mars? Every cosmetics company is using ingredients from the earth, so just because Jason Natural outfits theirs with a selection of plants doesn't mean they're inherently better (and in some instances, the plants are even a detriment). Still, there are enough high points in this line to make it worth considering. This line is huge, however, so be prepared to zero in on what's best or you may be overwhelmed by the choices.
