What is Fractionated Coconut Oil?

While coconut oil can do wonders for the skin, it can also clog your pores. This is one of the reasons why it can make your skin feel so smooth, as it does not fully absorb and rather just sticks on the surface it is applied to. While fractionated coconut oil is not 100% non-comedogenic, it is easily absorbed and less likely to clog pores or cause breakouts in comparison to virgin coconut oil.

How is Fractionated Coconut Oil made?

Fractionated coconut oil is formed when virgin coconut oil is distilled which allows long-chain fatty acids to separate and solidify for removal. At the end of this process, an ultralight, odorless coconut oil is created and stays in a liquid form. 

What's the difference between Coconut Oil and Fractionated Coconut Oil?

The 3 main differences to highlight when it comes to using fractionated coconut oil in comparison to virgin coconut oil in skincare are:

-Fractionated coconut oil is less likely to clog pores or cause breakouts. Which makes it totally safe to use our Bermuda Oil anywhere on the body.

-Fractionated coconut oil is more easily absorbed by the skin. Both types of coconut oil can be very nourishing and moisturizing.

-Virgin coconut oil is too heavy to use as a body oil.


    Should I try skincare products with Fractionated Coconut Oil included in the formula?

    When it comes to trying any new skincare products, you should always do a small patch test whether it is a natural product or not. Give your skin the chance to see if it likes the product. If you have no irritations after testing, find a way to incorporate the product into your skincare routine. 

    How does Bermuda Oil naturally lighten dark spots and hyperpigmentation?

    6 natural ingredients work together to break up the melanin pigments that cause dark spots, uneven skin tones, and hyperpigmentation. The combination of fractionated coconut carrier oil, lemon essential oil, and rare copaiba oil work to even and diffuse the appearance of dark spots and blemishes.
