Looks good in theory, with the high vit A precursors that will work better with the fat(than a carrot) and vit E which is found to be decreased in sebum of acne sufferers.

Anything im missing?

I haven't heard of Red Palm Oil used as acne treatment, but I have heard of raw honey and coconut oil as treatment.

Ahh, yeah, I wasn't sure why you'd use it externally, perhaps you like the Oompa-loompa/Snookie look. ;)

Big question, are carotenes and tocopherols transdermally absorbed? Magic Google 8-Ball says: "results mixed."

If your acne is caused by vitamin A or E deficiency then maybe..could well be something else though. I assume the carotenes would be absorbed much better than from carrots or other fibre bound carotenes but you still may only get a fraction of that converted to retinol. Give it a go, much worse things to try!
