More About This Product
Fractionated Coconut Oil (FCO) is a versatile and stable carrier oil used to dilute, disperse, and aid the absorption of more potent essential oils. It is produced from virgin coconut oil that has had its long-chain fatty acids removed. This refinement helps it to remain liquid at room temperature and also extends the product’s shelf life.
FCO contains healthy medium-chain fatty acids, and natural antioxidants and nutrients, which naturally protect the skin from environmental stressors and help maintain a tighter, firmer look. It is completely soluble with other oils, protecting skin from too high an intensity of exposure to essential oil.
FCO is light, and absorbs quickly without clogging pores. It leaves a soft, smooth feeling that won’t exacerbate oiliness or leave you feeling greasy. It is odorless and colorless for a subtle, penetrating vehicle to carry your essential oil aromas efficiently. Feel free to use this versatile tool for all your basic carrier oil needs.
- A carrier like Fractionated Coconut Oil is used to dilute essential oil before it is applied to the skin to aid in absorption and more efficiently carry aromatherapy benefits.
