Botanical Name: Cocos nucifera

Description: Fractionated Coconut Oil produces a barrier on the skin, but will not clog pores. It penetrates the skin, acting as a carrier for trans-dermal therapeutic ingredients. The ability to transport essential oils makes it an oil of choice among medical practitioners and massage therapists.
Meet the liquid version of coconut oil. Fractionated coconut oil is a fraction of the coconut oil from which almost all the long chain triglycerides are removed, thus leaving mainly the medium-chain triglycerides and making it an absolutely saturated oil. This saturation gives it a very long shelf life and greatly increased stability. If you need a light oil that will mix well with the other oils, absorbs into the skin easily and will moisturize without clogging pores, then fractionated coconut oil is a good fit. It is predominantly composed of Capric and Caprylic acids.
Cautions: None known.
