    The source

    Coconut oil will go solid at room temperature and has a coconut aroma. Coconut oil, Light, is a fractionated coconut oil which makes the oil thinner (even at cooler temperatures), odourless and much easier to use as a carrier oil, for massage and for making body care products with. It also increases the stability of the oil and gives it a much longer shelf life.

    The process of fractionation is where coconut oil has been hydrolysed and then steam distilled. This process takes away the long chain triglycerides and leaves just medium chain triglycerides, which increases the concentration of capric acid, caprylic acid, lauric acid, palmitic acid and myristic acid.

     

    Affects

    Coconut oil is a light, non-greasy oil that is easily absorbed. It has softening, soothing and nourishing properties making it ideal for skin, hair and body care. It is particularly good for dry skin and often used in lip balms and hair care products. 
    Coconut oil also carries other oils well, making it highly valued in aromatherapy, traditional Indian medicine (Ayurveda), Chinese medicine, as well as other natural health modalities that use therapeutic oils and massage.

    Coconut oil is rich in fatty acids (lauric, capric, caprylic, palmitic and myristic acids) These acids are anti microbial, anti-fungal, anti bacterial and rich in antioxidants, as well as good levels of vitamin E, vitamin K and minerals such as iron.
