MCT Oil - Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride



MCTs or Medium Chain Triglycerides (of Medium Chain Fatty Acids) are fatty acids of a certain length, as the name suggests. MCT oil is an oil made up of one or more of these medium-chain triglycerides and it is translucent and tasteless liquid at room temperature. MCT oil is most commonly extracted from coconut oil, as more than 50% of the fat in coconut oil comes from MCTs. These fats are also found in many other foods, such as palm oil and dairy products. Like coconut oil, MCT oil is good for skin and hair, providing a natural moisturiser and helping detangle hair.
