"If stored properly and tightly closed, they may still be fine to use. I would smell them; if they don't smell strongly or like they are rancid, they might be ok.
We would recommend that you purchase brand-new bottles. If the product is bad, it could ruin your whole batch. It's not worth the cost to mess up whole batches of lotion or soap. Bad Vitamin E can make an entire batch of lotion rancid. We also recommend you store both in the fridge & purchase small bottles that you can use up within 6 months."
Tell us - do you have any experience using ROE & Vitamin E after the 1-year mark?
