Fractionated MCT Oil
Pure Fractionated "MCT" oil which means Medium Chain Triglyceride 60-40 oil Caprylic (C8) and Capric (C10). Applications range from massage oils to a replacement for silicone or mineral oil, and even nutritional supplements and food to cosmetics and industrial use.
Most oils derived from plants are "unsaturated" fatty acid triglycerides, with one or more carbon-carbon double bonded long fatty ester side chains which are typically 16 to 20+ carbon units long. The double bonds on the side chains are susceptible to oxidation over time and the reactions with oxygen are what produce rancidity in the carrier oils when they get a few months old.
Fractionated MCT oil has a relatively high percentage of shorter length (C8, C10 ), completely saturated (no double bonds) triglycerides. The smaller fatty acid triglycerides are separated or fractionated. With this type of bond the MCT oil has much longer, nearly indefinite shelf life. It is lighter, non-greasy, non-staining, liquid oil.
The fractionated MCT oil is a good choice for use in all kinds of ways, from massage oils, to use as a carrier oil with essential oils, as it helps carry therapeutic oils under the skin plus has so many benefits that a carrier oil does not offer. It can be used in creams, lotions, bath oils, bath salts and for soapmaking. It is a great carrier oil and a great substitute for silicones and mineral oils as well.
It can be especially useful in face creams where a light oil is desired. It is also a good substitute for sweet almond oil - especially if you are concerned about rancidity or short shelf life.
