Most people are familiar with the pure, whole coconut oil which solidifies at room temperature, but Fractionated Coconut Oil, is liquid.
Through a simple mechanical process of separation that is non-chemical, the smaller molecules of coconut oil (that will remain liquid at room temperature) are separated out from the whole coconut oil that results in what is known as Fractionated Coconut Oil. As the separation process is non-chemical and involves a simple physical separation process there are no chemical residues to be concerned about and results in a truly incredible fixed, carrier oil that is ideal for use in aromatherapy.
As the structure of the coconut oil has been altered, the components and active ingredients are still active. Another added benefits of Fractionated Coconut oil is that it is less susceptible to contaminants such as fungi or bacteria.
Fractionated Coconut Oil shares, along with Jojoba carrier oil, the distinction of being closest in molecular structure to the skin's own natural sebum, making it more readily absorbed into skin and ideal for use in natural skin care and massage products.
Fractionated Coconut Oil is fully metabolised by the body and unlike most oils, is not absorbed into the fatty cells and tissues of the body, making it an ideal carrier for essential oils to make it through the fat cells beneath the dermis and into the blood vessels serving muscles, that is, it REALLY gets absorbed.
As well Fractionated Coconut Oil remains liquid at room temperature and because of its light consistency, will not clog skin pores, making it suitable to use on dry, sensitive or problem skin.
Another remarkable fact about Fractionated Coconut Oil is that, due to its molecular structure, it is not subject to oxidation. This means that it has an infinite shelf life with no possibility of going rancid. Lack of rancidity also makes Fractionated Coconut Oil perfect for pure essential oil based perfumes.
Fractionated Coconut Oil is water soluble and easily washes out of most fabrics, table linens, sheets, towels and other items leaving no stains or rancid odours, making it ideal for the massage therapist.
Being odourless it makes an ideal carrier for aromatic oils. Use it as an extender for more expensive pure essential oils. Fractionated Coconut Oil adds a silky, smooth light quality to other more heavy carrier oils.
Fractionated Coconut Oil softens and lubricates the skin and feels simply wonderful. Using this as a refined and sterilised carrier oil when treating sensitive skin conditions could prevent further problems from occurring.
A skin care principle to consider when choosing skin care products is that whatever is put on the skin will be absorbed through the dermis (skin) and enter the bloodstream. This makes it incredibly important to choose skin care products containing nourishing ingredients that will feed the skin and enhance health. Coconut oils nourishing benefits have been used for decades by professional massage therapists to support healthy connective tissue, as well as by skin care specialists to nourish and heal skin tissue from free radical damage and to promote smoother, healthier looking skin. Because of its notable anti-aging properties coconut oil has been classified as an antioxidant.

I recently purchased COCONUT (Fractionated) Liquid Oil, and I am delighted to share my positive experience with this product, despite a minor delay in delivery caused by a postal error.
From the moment I opened the package, I was pleasantly surprised by the freshness and the high-quality packaging. The bottle itself is sturdy and leak-proof, ensuring that the oil remains intact and easy to use.
The fractionated coconut oil itself has been a revelation. Its lightweight and non-greasy consistency make it an absolute joy to include in my body scrub recipe nnudi shimmer body scrub.
Overall, my experience with the COCONUT Oil has been positive. I highly recommend this product to anyone seeking a versatile and effective skincare oil that is high quality and good value.
