Product Description: Coconut MCT Oil 60/40 (Medium Chain Triglyceride) is also referred to as Fractionated Coconut Oil. The oil is colorless and virtually odorless. Containing high levels of medium chain triglycerides, Caprylic (C8) and Capric (C10), MCT Oil is liquid at room temperature and very stable. The ability to transport essential oils and actives makes it an oil of choice among medical practitioners and massage therapists. Applications are vast ranging from nutritional supplement and food to cosmetics and industrial use. It is chemically indifferent to other cosmetic ingredients and it acts as a viscosity regulator assisting in the dispersion of additives and pigments.
Shelf Life: Fractionated Coconut oil is extremely resistant to breaking down and does not go rancid like other carrier oils. The shelf life is indefinite with proper storage conditions (cool, out of direct sunlight). Refrigeration is not needed.
Cautions: Allergic reactions to this oil is a possibility, though less so than regular coconut.
Storage: It is recommended that cold-pressed 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.
