Fractionated Coconut Oil
A pourable Coconut Oil that remains liquid at room temperature unlike raw coconut oil that forms into a solid mass.
It's extremely gentle and is the perfect choice for anyone who has highly reactive skin. This makes it one of the best choices for diluting essential oils for use with children, the elderly or anyone who is normally hyper sensitive to volatile components.
Fractionated Coconut Oil is also called Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride and is produced by a heating process. The raw coconut oil is distilled (in a similar process to making essential oils) which removes the long chain fatty acids that cause it to solidify. What's left is an oil that is very similar to skin's sebum (naturally produced oil) that can be used as a massage oil, hair conditioning treatment or other body oil base.
It is considered non-comedogenic meaning it will not clog pores which can lead to blackheads, irritation and infected hair folicles.
Unlike raw coconut oil it has no scent and provides an excellent mixing base to learn how to build aromatic blends and beginner's perfumery. It's also clear meaning it can take on the colours of certain essential oils without tainting the hues.
Store away from heat and light.
Packaged in an amber glass bottle with dripolator lid.
