MCT Oil is a Medium Chain Triglyceride oil. It's composed of a glycerol molecule linked with 3 fatty acids. Because of their shorter chain length, MCTs have a number of unique nutritional and technological properties which give advantages over the more common long chain triglycerides. MCTs have a smaller molecular weight, giving the oil a low viscosity.
When used as a food ingredient or taken as a supplement, due to their shorter chain length, medium-chain triglycerides break down quicker to be absorbed into the body. This makes them a fast energy source and less likely to be stored as fat.
When used in cosmetics, MTC oil is commonly referred to as Caprylic / Capric Triglycerides and provides a silky, oil-free texture and outstanding oxidation stability. It is colorless, virtually odorless and pours at room temperature.
