Essential Takeaways

  • Tocopherols are a class of organic chemical compounds, many of which have vitamin E activity. Even though they’re often called vitamin E on ingredient labels, all tocopherols aren’t alike.
  • Soybeans are the most common source of tocopherols in the Americas--the others are canola and sunflower.
  • Advanced Organic Materials S.A. provides a product that is non-GMO and non-soy.

Can you tell us a little bit about the company?

That sounds like an exciting prospect. Why did you begin with tocopherols?

And how did that lead you to the non-GMO canola oil version we’re using in Ritual?

We’d love to hear more about the source and the manufacturing process.

In other words, it’s very natural. Is that how you’d summarize your philosophy?
