Fractionated Coconut Oil / MCT Oil

 

 

 

Fractionated coconut oil is virgin coconut oil that has been distilled, allowing long-chain fatty acids to separate and solidify for removal. What remains is an ultralight, odorless coconut oil that stays liquid in form at cooler temps

 

The difference between virgin and fractionated coconut oil :

  • Virgin coconut oil is solid at lower room temperatures, making it too heavy to use as a facial oil

  • Virgin coconut oil is less processed so it maintains lauric acid and other long-chain fatty acids

  • Fractionated coconut oil stays liquid in form, even in lower temperatures

  • Fractionated coconut oil is less likely to clog pores or cause breakouts

  • Fractionated coconut oil is more easily absorbed by the skin

 

Often used as a dietary supplement, with 1-3 tablespoons per day being a common dosage recommendation.
