Oil: Caprylic Capric Triglycerides (MCT Oil)

Our Caprylic Capric Triglycerides (MCT Oil) is palm-free.

MCT Oil, also known as Caprylic Capric Triglycerides, is gaining widespread attention within the beauty, cosmetic and personal care industries due to its impressive silky, oil-free texture and oxidative stability. Despite the word oil in its name, MCT Oil is actually an ester, not a true oil. It primarily contains Caprylic Acid and Capric Acid, medium chain triglycerides that are fluid at room temperature.

Not all commercially available MCT Oils are produced solely from coconuts. Some MCT products may be produced using unsustainable rapeseed and/or palm oils.

To produce our MCT Oil, a process called esterification is used. Coconut oil is first hydrolyzed to yield the medium chain fatty acids and glycerol. The glycerol is reserved, and the fatty acids undergo distillation to separate them into fractions of different chain lengths. The C8 Caprylic Acid and C10 Capric Acid fractions are then re-esterified with glycerol to form MCT Oil. The oil is then filtered and deodorized.

Unlike pure Virgin Coconut Oil that has a characteristic coconut aroma and that is solid and opaque at room temperature, MCT Oil is a clear, colorless and virtually odorless fluid that pours easily at room temperature.

Our MCT Oil and Fractionated Coconut Oil primarily consist of Caprylic and Caparic Triglycerides. However, they are produced using different methods, and both feature important differences in properties, benefits and applications. Please refer to the Comparison Chart shown on the next page and the separate product literature available for our Fractionated Coconut Oil.

Uses:

MCT Oil is highly versatile and is suitable for all skin types. It is gentle enough for sensitive skin. It is especially attractive for incorporation into oil-free cosmetic and personal care formulations intended for oily, combination or problem skin types. It absorbs rapidly and possesses a highly desirable, silky, powdery feel. MCT Oil can be incorporated into massage formulations or used on its own as a very light, non-greasy massage oil. It is also an exceptional substitute for mineral oil. Within aromatherapy and fragrancing applications, MCT Oil serves as a virtually odorless carrier for essential oils and other aromatics.

Properties:

Oil: Castor

Castor Oil is rich in fatty acids and is soothing and lubricating. It is a humectant that attracts moisture to the skin. Castor Oil is routinely used in hair oils, balms, and other thick emulsions for the skin and hair. In combination with other oils and as a superfatting agent, Castor Oil lends emolliency to soap formulations. It, however, should be used at a low percentage to keep the soap from becoming too soft.

Oil: Castor, Black

For centuries, Black Castor Oil has been claimed to be the secret to thick, luxurious, shiny hair in Africa and Jamaica.

Although it is extracted from the same castor seeds as pale pressed castor oil, Our Black Castor Oil is authentically produced by roasting the castor seeds prior to grinding. The seeds are then boiled to extract the dark oil. Roasting the seeds increases the ash content and lends a rich, dark hue to the oil. No solvents or chemicals are used to produce our Black Castor Oil.

After production, our Black Castor Oil is then carefully packaged and stored to maintain the purity, freshness and beneficial properties of this nutritive oil.

Chokeberries are the small fruits produced by the Aronia melanocarpa shrub. When consumed raw, the berries are extremely tart, thus lending to its chokeberry nickname.

These astringent, flavorful, polyphenol-rich berries are commonly used in jams, syrups, wines, juices, tisanes, flavorings and other culinary applications.

Oil: Coconut (RBD)

Expeller Pressed RBD (refined, bleached and deodorized) Coconut Oil is a light, penetrating and odorless oil that has been used extensively in personal and hair care products. It is highly valued for its use in cold process soap making due to its ability to produce a hard, moisturizing bar with bubbly lather. While solid at room temperature, Coconut Oil readily melts at 76 degrees F, making it suitable for use in solid balms when used in conjunction with natural waxes and vegetable butters.

To make Expeller Pressed RBD Coconut Oil, fresh coconuts are cut and dried to reduce the moisture content of the meat. The dried copra is then grated and expeller pressed to remove the oil. Finally, the oil is degummed, filtered/bleached and deodorized using steam. The resulting oil is solid (below 76F), white, odorless and stable.

While not as rich in antioxidants as Virgin Coconut Oil, Expeller Pressed RBD Coconut Oil has the same fatty acid chain composition and therefore maintains its moisturizing properties. It is useful in formulations for all skin types but can also help soothe dry, itchy, or sensitive skin. It is light, non-greasy, non-clogging and absorbs readily. It is commonly used throughout India as a conditioning hair oil, either as is or infused with Ayurvedic herbs and botanicals. Coconut Oil is naturally resistant to rancidity and can withstand high temperatures, therefore, it lends itself well to making botanical infusion extracts.


We recommend the use of Expeller Pressed RBD Coconut Oil in the following applications:

  • Cold Process and Hot Process Soaps
  • Lip Balms
  • Body Creams and Lotions
  • Facial Moisturizers

Oil: Coffee Bean, Roasted

Our Roasted Coffee Bean Oil is expeller pressed from premium quality roasted beans harvested from Coffee arabica shrubs that have been cultivated on Brazilian farms.

Coffee plants are native to the tropical regions of South America, Asia and Africa. The Coffee arabica plant is a small shrub that typically reaches 3-4 meters in height, and the seeds are commonly referred to as beans.

Roasting the beans changes the chemical and aromatic composition of the beans and results in the characteristic, rich, robust flavor that coffee is widely known for.

Oil: Fractionated Coconut

Our Fractionated Coconut Oil is palm-free.

Fractionated Coconut Oil is a light, fluid and stable lipid. It consists primarily of Caprylic and Capric acids, two important medium-chain triglycerides that are naturally present in coconut oil and that are fluid at room temperature.

A small percentage of unsaturated fatty acids, including linoleic acid, an omega-6 essential fatty acid and oleic acid, an omega-9 fatty acid, may also be present in the oil.

Fractionated Coconut Oil is sometimes mistakenly referred to as MCT Oil.
