What is Fractionated Coconut Oil?
Fractionated coconut oil stands out from other vegetable carrier oils due to its unique properties. Unlike other oils, it leaves the skin feeling silky and smooth without a greasy residue. It is colorless and odorless, making it an excellent choice for blending with essential oils. When combined with essential oils, fractionated coconut oil preserves and maintains the original fragrance and benefits of the oils.
The silky and non-greasy texture of fractionated coconut oil makes it a preferred choice for various skincare applications, including massages, moisturizers, and hair care products. It is easily absorbed by the skin, providing hydration and nourishment without clogging pores. Its versatility and compatibility with essential oils make it a popular option for creating personalized aromatherapy blends or diluting potent oils for safe topical use.
Whether used on its own or blended with essential oils, fractionated coconut oil offers a smooth and pleasant application, allowing for a luxurious and enjoyable experience.
Please note that if you have any specific allergies or sensitivities, it is recommended to perform a patch test before applying the oil to larger areas of the body.
