Fractionated Coconut Oil
Fractionated coconut oil is the product you are left with when most of the long chain triglycerides are removed from coconut oil leaving mainly the medium-chain triglycerides, making it an 100% saturated oil. This is done first by hydrolysis, using water to breakdown the coconut oil, then the fractionated oil is extracted using steam distillation. The end result is a thin, extremely stable oil with an exceptionally long shelf life.
It is light weight, easily absorbed and non-greasy, making it an excellent massage oil or carrier oil for essential oils. It is often used as an ingredient in body products and cosmetics as it is compatible with all skin types, including sensitive skin. It is also an emollient helping the skin to retain moisture.
Fractionating the coconut oil also increases the concentration of Capric acid and Caprylic acid, which give it antioxidant and disinfecting properties making it a useful ingredient in some pharmaceutical products.
This product comes pre-filled in a returnable 100mL or 500mL glass bottles. If you want to add a pump top, add one from the 'Bottles and Closures' section.
