fractionated coconut oil mct (medium-chain triglyceride) is literally a “fraction” of virgin coconut oil and is produced via a heating process that isolates medium-chain triglycerides from other fatty acids. this allows fractionated coconut oil to retain the same incredible moisturizing ability as virgin coconut oil. however, unlike virgin coconut oil, fractionated coconut oil is virtually colorless, odorless, and liquid at all temperatures. this process refines, clarifies, and deodorizes the oil. fractionated coconut oil will always remain liquid regardless of temperature. it will not solidify.
fractionated coconut oil absorbs very quickly into the skin, making it ideal for use with any essential oil or blend. this wonderful carrier oil can help moisturize the skin, remove makeup, and help keep hair lustrous and smooth. it readily penetrates the skin, making it perfect for rollerball blends, creams, and lotions without leaving a greasy feeling. easy to use by itself or with your favorite essential oils, fractionated coconut oil is a definite must-have!
unlike most other carriers, fractionated coconut oil is extremely resistant to rancidity. the shelf life is at least 2 years under proper storage conditions (cool, out of direct sunlight). refrigeration is not needed.
directions: use with any of plant therapy's single essential oils, synergies, rollerball blends, or diy projects. fractionated coconut oil can be used at 100% strength. add 10 drops of lavender to a rollerball bottle and fill the rest of it with fractionated coconut oil; place the ball back on the bottle and take your lavender roll-on with you wherever you go.
