Coconut Hair Oil is a favorite among many for its amazing health promoting and beautifying properties. It smooths skin and reveals a fresh, glowing complexion for those who tolerate it well. Most, however, do not tolerate unrefined Coconut Hair Oil well on their face due to its high comedogenic rating (4). Coconut Hair Oil is rather heavy and may be better used at night.
Our Coconut Hair Oil is organically sourced out of Sri Lanka and is Fractionated through Esterification processes. Fractionated Coconut Hair Oil is often used when the solidifying properties of pure Coconut Hair Oil at room temperature are not desired. It remains a clear liquid, with perhaps a faint yellow tint, and odourless, and is therefore more useful for cosmetic applications like hair and body care.
The vast majority of MCT 60/40 sold in the market is extracted from cheaper Palm Oil or a mixture of Palm and Coconut. Our Fractionated Coconut Hair Oil is guaranteed pure.
MCT Oil (which stands for “Medium Chain Triglycerides”) is more suitable for dry skin types but may clog the pores due to its high caproic (C6), caprylic (C8) and capric (C10) fatty acid content, which itself has a comedogenic rating of 2. It does have a lower comedogenic rating than Coconut Hair Oil because it has had its long-chain triglycerides removed, making it less oily and easier to absorb into the skin. Our Coconut Hair Oil makes for an extremely stable and effective transdermal nutrient carrier when infused with other essential ingredients.
MCT 60/40 is non-greasy and absorbs easily into the skin. Again, as it is an incredibly stable form of Coconut Hair Oil, if kept under the right conditions (refrigerated or stored in a cool, dry place and out of direct sunlight), MCT Oil can have a shelf life from 3 to 5 years.
