organic fractionated coconut oil
This organic oil has been pressed from the seed of the Coconut palm Tree. The solid fatty acids have been removed from the coconut fat making it a thin, fluid, oil.
It adds body and good lubricating and softening properties to massage oils and other skin care products. A popular choice to use in the aromatherapy and massage industries due to its oxidative stability.
A good choice for liquid / sprayable perfumes.
It mainly works as an emollient, dispersing agent and solvent. As an emollient, it both quickly penetrates the surface to condition the skin/hair, and provides a lightweight and non-greasy barrier of lubrication.
Its oily texture helps to thicken skincare products and provides a slippery feel, which in turn allows for the easy spreadability of the product and a smooth after-touch.
In the countries where coconuts are found, it is used for its beneficial hair care qualities, such as making the hair shiny and glossy.
