Fractionated Coconut Oil contains only the medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) of coconut oil, making it a liquid and very stable oil. It is produced through the hydrolysis of coconut oil and is then fractionated by steam distillation.

Blended with other carrier oil, Coconut makes a lovely massage oil, rich on the skin.

Coconut is a beautiful oil to use as a bath oil with natural dispersant properties allowing you to combine essential oils and create luxurious bath oils without chemicals.

Like Jojoba, Coconut helps the skin naturally control its oil secretions. But, most importantly, the application of Coconut on the skin after washing with soap/shower gel allows the skin to quickly and naturally restore its pH level to 5.5 without blocking pores.

Using Coconut in skincare products or direct on the skin is a wonderfully natural way to beautiful skin.

Fractionated Coconut is a highly refined oil and does not contain the same properties as the natural, solid coconut butter.

Shelf Life & Storage: Users can expect a shelf life of up to 2-5 years with proper storage conditions because fractionated coconut oil is a very stable carrier oil. It is recommended that carrier oils be kept in a cool, dark place to maintain freshness and achieve maximum shelf life. If refrigerated, bring to room temperature before using. Keep oxygen out of the bottle and rebottle into smaller sizes as oil is used.
