Soy Oil (Vitamin E) & Soy Cream (HRT)

Answered on June 13, 2013

I???m relatively new to Paleo and have a bit of an obscure question regarding soy cream and soy oil. I recently bought some vitamin E oil to discover its first ingredient is soy oil. I also use a HRT cream that???s base is soy. Any thoughts on both from a healthy Paleo point of view? In addition, some thoughts/ideas on alternatives? I would like to have an alternative base cream suggestion if possible when I talk with my compounding pharmacist.

Is it vitamin E extracted from soy?

Coconut oil doesn't contain much vitamin E, as it's mostly saturated fat

If you want vitamin E, try red palm oil

I had the same problem when I looked for vitamin E. I found out it was made from soy, so I chose not to buy it since I'm allergic to soy. I'm probably getting some vitamin E now from the coconut oil that I'm having daily.

But if you aren't allergic to soy, and you have bought it already, I wouldn't worry so much, since each capsule would have a very small amount of soy, and be mainly the actual vitamin E. Just try to find a better alternative next time. ;)

Since you aren't ingesting it, I think the main concern would be pesticide residues.

Olive oil would be a good substitute.
