Description – No to be confused with true coconut oil, this is a fraction of the original oil (solid fatty acids have been removed by distillation to leave only short & medium chain triglycerides) and a useful alternative to mineral oil where a light, colourless and economical product is needed. Does not stain fabric in the same way as other carrier oils can. Unlike complete coconut, this is liquid at room temperature.
