The term Triglyceride refers to the number of carbon atoms in the fatty acids. Long-Chain Fatty Acids contain 13–21 carbons, Medium-Chain Fatty (MCT) Acids have 6-12 carbon atoms, and Short-Chain Fatty Acids have fewer than 6 carbon atoms. The benefits of the shorter chain length of the fatty acids is that MCTs are rapidly broken down and absorbed into the body. NDA's Medium Chain Triglycerides – MCT 60/40 Oil is made of Caproic Acid (C6), Caprylic Acid (C8), and Capric Acid (C10) fatty acids.
Description: The vast majority of MCT 60/40 Oil sold in the market is of Palm origin or a mixture of Palm and Coconut. Our Coconut Fractionated Oil is produced 100% from Coconuts.
The MCT 60/40 Fractionated 100% Coconut Organic Oil (Coconut Fractionated) does not go solid at room temperature. This oil stays liquid and clear. It is highly stable and resistant to oxidation for use in creams, lotions, and many other cosmetic preparations for skin and hair. Because it is chemically indifferent to other cosmetic ingredients, it acts as a viscosity regulator and assists in the dispersion of pigments and other additives. Further, it penetrates the skin readily, thus acting as a carrier for transdermal therapeutic ingredients. This ability to transport Essential Oils and actives makes it an oil of choice among medical practitioners and massage therapists.
Our MCT 60/40 Fractionated 100% Coconut Organic Oil (Coconut Fractionated) meets the quality standards of the FDA, Health Canada, and the European Pharmacopoeia for use in Health & Beauty products.
The manufacturers of our MCT Palm/Coconut and MCT 100% Coconut oils have confirmed that they always strive to produce MCT oils from responsible vendors. However, obtaining RSPO certification is an expensive process and if a customer requires an MCT product to be RSPO certified it would need to be special ordered and the premium/fees for certification would need to be paid. This would substantially increase the price of the product. While NDA is a member of the RSPO, we are not allowed to issue documents with RSPO logos and RSPO labels without paying the requisite certification premium and fees.
