Fractionated Coconut Oil contains only the medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) of coconut oil, making it a liquid and very stable oil. It is produced through the hydrolysis of coconut oil and is then fractionated by steam distillation. Fractionated Coconut Oil has indefinite shelf life and is a light, non-greasy, non-staining, liquid oil. It is a good choice for use in massage, skin care and soap formulations. It can be included in creams, lotions, bath oils, bath salts and soap. It is a good substitute for Sweet Almond Oil if you are worried about rancidity or a short shelf life. It washes off massage tables easily and does not impart an odour to linens. Fractionated Coconut is a highly refined oil and does not contain the same properties as the natural, solid coconut butter.
Shelf Life: very stable
