WHAT IS FRACTIONATED COCONUT OIL
Fractionated Coconut Oil is, as it sounds, a fraction of the oils produced by cold pressing the coconut fruit. It is also called Copra, or known by the Latin name for the species, cocos nucifera. It is derived from the meat of ripe coconuts when they are harvested from the coconut palm tree. After the meat is harvested from the nut, it is cold pressed to release a water and oil emulsion. Exposure to cold solidifies the oil, facilitating collection. It’s then distilled with steam, removing the long-chain triglycerides leaving behind the medium-chains. The resulting oil is high in beneficial caprylic and capric acids, which is the key to this oil’s amazing properties.
Coconut oil is prized for its high content of saturated fats, and is corresponding shelf life. The resulting oil is steam distilled to remove certain fatty acids, leaving behind a light, odorless oil. Unlike coconut oil in the grocery store, Invivo Fractionated Coconut Oil remains liquid at room temperature, is 100% saturated oil, and does some pretty remarkable things.
Invivo Fractionated Coconut Oil is also referred to as carrier oil. Carrier oils do just what they sound like they do. They “carry” other oils, like essential oils into the body and skin. Carrier oils are great for working with essential oils because it is often necessary to dilute highly concentrated essential oils when applying to the skin. For some people, applying essential oils directly to the skin can cause painful irritations.
There are other carrier oils, all produced from the fatty nuts and seeds of plants. What distinguishes fractionated coconut oil is that it doesn't go rancid and has a nearly indefinite shelf life. Yes, Invivo Fractionated Coconut Oil is truly the ideal carrier for most topical essential oil body and face applications, as well as a perfect massage oil, acting as a lubricant during therapy on large muscles, or deep tissue massages.
Lastly, Invivo Fractionated Coconut Oil is a great moisturizer and conditioner, but won’t leave your skin feeling greasy. It won’t clog your pores, and is well suited for oily skin and mixed complexions. Try it today, and discover how essential it is to any healthy home!

SAFE USAGE Fractionated Coconut Oil: AVOID on oily skin, pimpled, acne skins. May cause skin irritation. For those with nut sensitivity, test skin prior to use.
Balancing Essential Oils and Medical Care: Essential oils are amazing. They provide an all-natural method to deliver remedies to our families, without harsh or toxic chemicals, or a dependence on medication after medication. Check with a health professional before using essential oils if you have a serious medical condition or are pregnant, nursing, or planning to become pregnant. Seek the advice of a health professional before topically applying essential oils to children. When applying any essential oil for the first time, test one drop on a small area of skin first. Skin sensitivity differs from person to person. If your skin feels hot or turns red, apply carrier oil to the area to dilute and plan to dilute thatessential oil before reuse. Essential oils are not water soluble, so attempting to wash off with water is not effective.
