Caprylic capric triglycerides

Otherwise known as MCT Oil

Please note that due to world wide supply chain issues Caprylic Capric Triglycerides is in very short supply. We have managed to source Fractionated Coconut Oil from a UK supplier. The INCI is Caprylic Capric Triglycerides. Our supplier references the ingredient as fractionated coconut oil but also states the INCI as Caprylic Capric Triglycerides on official documentation.

This product is free of VAT

Caprylic capric triglycerides (CCT) are derived from coconut oil. It is an excellent emollient and moisturiser and is a popular ingredient in moisturising creams and lotions. Caprylic/capric triglycerides are considered to be a more natural alternative to other emollients and texture enhancers. This is why it is often used in the natural or clean beauty industry

CCT creates a barrier on the skin’s surface, decreasing the amount of moisture lost through the skin, functioning not only to prevent dryness in skin, but also as a skin conditioning agent. More

It contains anti-oxidants and so has a long shelf life. It can help stabilise and lengthen the shelf life of creams and lotions.

Add to your creams and lotions especially if your formulation includes plant oils to reduce the heaviness and greasiness typical of plant oil based creams.

Simply replace part of the plant oil component in your recipe with this ester. For example if your formulation includes 15% plant oils then try replacing 5% of the oils with 5% Caprylic Capric Triglycerides. You’ll feel the difference. Indeed if you wanted a cream that was very light on the skin and easily absorbed you could replace all the oils in your formulation or combine with Propanediol Dicaprylate (50:50) for an even lighter skin feel.
