Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, alternatively known as Octanoic/Decanoic Acid Triglyceride or MCT Palm Oil, is a specialized esterification of palm oil extracted from the palm kernel. This oil uses only the medium chain triglycerides,namely Caprylic Acid and Capric Fatty Acid, contained in raw palm oil. The result is an ideal carrier oil that can be used in a variety of applications.
Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride is silky and light to the touch, absorbing into the skin easily. This means when it’s used in cosmetic and skincare products, organic MCT oil leaves no greasy feeling on the skin. With a long shelf life, low color, minimal odor and low to no hazard, this carrier oil is an ideal selection for sensitive skin and oil-free products. Acme-Hardesty provides quality Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, produced using ethically sourced supplies.
What Is MCT Oil, and Where Does It Come From?
MCT is short for medium-chain triglyceride, which is most commonly found in coconut oil. While coconut oil is the richest natural source of MCT, you can also find it in palm kernel oil and to a lesser extent in dairy products. However, extracting MCT oil is not as simple as cracking open a coconut. There is a specific process for successfully isolating MCT oil that requires someone experienced at MCT extraction.
MCT Oil Uses & Applications
The two most common uses of MCT oil are as a dietary supplement and in cosmetics, for similar reasons. MCT oil is nearly odorless, colorless and flavorless, and it is a natural additive you can include without noticeably altering the product you are using it in. It is easily absorbed by the body and has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. You may wonder how MCT oil can be used in oil-free products, though. Although it is called an oil, it is really an ester and does not feel oily on the skin or cause a reaction for people whose skin is sensitive to oils. In fact, its powdery, silky feel is often considered quite pleasant compared to the feel of oil-based products.
