Fractionated Coconut Oil

Scientific Background: Rooted in Science - Fractionated coconut oil is obtained through a process called fractionation, which isolates various fatty acids present in regular coconut oil. The primary components of fractionated coconut oil are medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs), known for their easy absorption by the hair and skin. Unlike long-chain fatty acids (LCFAs), these MCFAs provide superior absorption and usability. This refined variant surpasses its unprocessed form in terms of absorption capacity and overall quality, making it an excellent choice for enhanced hair and skin care.

Plant Origin & Native Region - Fractionated coconut oil is derived from coconuts, which are native to tropical and subtropical regions around the world, including Southeast Asia, the Pacific Islands, and the Caribbean.

Hair Specialty: Emollient -  Fractionated coconut oil, celebrated for its potent emollient properties, plays a crucial role in our hair care formulas. Its ability to create a protective layer around the hair shaft makes it an exceptional ingredient for hair health. Delicately coating and smoothing hair cuticles, it provides optimal hydration, particularly for dry and damaged strands.

The oil's emollient qualities result in a softening effect on the hair, leading to a noticeable improvement in hair texture. This is why it's a key ingredient in our products, revitalizing parched, dull strands, giving them a healthier and revitalized appearance.

One of the standout characteristics of fractionated coconut oil is its odorless and colorless nature. This ensures that the focus remains on the benefits it brings, making it an unobtrusive addition to our formulas. It's a lightweight and non-greasy choice, making our hair care products an absolute pleasure to use.

In essence, fractionated coconut oil enhances our hair care formulas with its superior moisturizing and protective benefits, acting as a remarkable emollient that contributes to healthier, softer, and more vibrant hair.
