Caprylic / Capric Triglyceride is combination of fatty acids derived from coconut oil and glycerin, not to be mistaken for fractionated coconut oil. Surely coconut oil has a wealth of benefits for the skin and overall health, Fractionated oil is distilled coconut oil presenting the typical greasy feeling of an oil. Caprylic / Capric Triglyceride, however, is colorless and odorless, and upon topical application there is an evident—and delightful—light, silkiness to the skin.
Not only is it appealing to the touch, but it allows a smooth, even distribution of the product itself and aids the absorption of other ingredients because it is so effortlessly dispersed.
Moreover, this oil has high antioxidant properties that allow for virtually no expiration of shelf life. Emollient properties help skin retain moisture and smoothness and repair dryness at the surface by forming a protective layer to the skin. It is a non-irritant to sensitive skin. Caprylic/capric triglyceride can also serve as a thickener.
