Almost every Vitamin A supplement I have seen advertised contains soybean oil. I have heard this causes breakouts.

Is this true? Should you avoid Vitamin A supplements with soybean oil, or is the amount usually tiny?

The amount that is in there is so insignificant that I highly doubt it could ever cause a problem, but not only that, the benefits that are inside of that vitamin greatly outweigh the minuscule amount of soybean oil that is in there. As a matter of fact, I've never even heard of soybean oil causing anyone any problems with ingested orally. I have, however, heard that soybean oil is comedogenic when used in topical treatments and makeups.

I got diarrhea (and acne of course) from Healthy Origins D-vitamin capsules which most likely have rancid olive oil in them. I also thought such a small amount could not cause anything but it can. I have tried it many times.

So did you break out because there was olive oil, or because the olive oil was rancid?
