Red palm oil derived vitamin E supplement?

All vitamin E supplements that I have seen are derived from industrial seed oils, such as soy or sunflower. Since virgin red palm oil is a safer oil, and since it contains a fair amount of vitamin E, it puzzles me that there are no vitamin E capsules derived from concentrated red palm oil. I'd really like to find a concentrated vitamin E supplement derived from red palm oil without having to eat spoonfuls of red palm oil. Does such a supplement exist?

What's wrong with eating a tbsp a week? Seems easy peasy lemon squeezy.

I'm not a particular fan of isolating various compounds anyway. Who knows how various parts of a plant work when a single one is isolated. IIRC, over eating concentrated antioxidants can actually protect certain cancers. I think you're better off just eating real food whose makeup works, imo, synergistically.
