I was really happy to see that for less than what I paid for a teeny lil bottle of fractionated coconut oil from another brand, this is a HUGE 16oz bottle, so you definitely get more bang for your buck. It's another one of those multipurpose products that is a constant in my house. We use it for everything from softening rough skin, making hair soft and silky and my current favorite aka; "honey! please rub my back!" It's in an easy to use plastic bottle with a flip cap so you're much less likely to spill and waste, especially helpful when using it for massage. This is a great carrier oil too, so you can add your own essential oils or blend with other oils to make custom blends.
What is Fractionated Coconut Oil?
As the name implies, Fractionated coconut oil is a fraction of the coconut oil from which almost all the long chain triglycerides are removed, thus leaving mainly the medium-chain triglycerides and making it an absolutely saturated oil. This saturation gives it a very, very long shelf life and greatly increased stability.
In addition, fractionating raises the comparative concentration of Capric acid and Caprylic acid, thus giving it more of antioxidant and disinfecting effect.
