Massage Mercantile - Pure Coconut Oil - Fractionated
Selected with utmost care, our in-house Coconut Oil is high in Essential Fatty Acids with a rich emollience, excellent glide and absorption. This pure Coconut Oil is an excellent choice for all modalities and most especially for clients with sensitive, inflamed or irritated skin.
The term Triglyceride refers to the number of carbon atoms in the fatty acids. Long-Chain Fatty Acids contain 13–21 carbons, Medium-Chain Fatty (MCT) Acids have 6-12 carbon atoms, and Short-Chain Fatty Acids have fewer than 6 carbon atoms. The benefit of the shorter chain length of the fatty acids is that MCTs are rapidly broken down and absorbed into the body. This Medium Chain Triglyceride – MCT 60/40 Oil is made of Caproic Acid (C6), Caprylic Acid (C8), and Capric Acid (C10) fatty acids.
These are widely known for their therapeutic benefits - they are anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral as well as being rich in natural anti-oxidants and nutrients like Vitamins A, C and & E.
