Plant Therapy - Coconut (Fractionated) Carrier Oil FCO



Fractionated Coconut Oil is not the same as virgin cold-pressed coconut oil that is solid at 76 degrees Fahrenheit and below. Fractionated oils have been heated to separate certain chains of fatty acids into separate components. This process refines, clarifies, and deodorizes the oil. Fractionated Coconut Oil will always remain liquid regardless of temperature. Its abilities as an emollient and moisturizer are the same as virgin coconut oil.



Most familiar as the carrier oil used in rollerball bottle blends as it extends the life of the blend. Use at 100% strength.


Product Details

Unlike most other carriers, Fractionated Coconut Oil is extremely resistant to rancidity. The shelf life is at least 2 years and is probably more under proper storage conditions (cool, out of direct sunlight). Refrigeration is not needed.
