An emollient derived from fractionated plant oils (often coconut) and glycerin, making it fluid, lightweight and gentle. It moisturizes skin by forming a lightweight barrier to help reduce the loss of skin's water content.
“Caprylic/Capric triglyceride is derived from glycerin and coconut oil, and I love how moisturizing it is without clogging pores. I find that my acne-prone patients do break out from coconut oil, but not from products made with even high-concentrations of this ingredient. It’s excellent even for sensitive skin, and supports a healthy skin barrier while enhancing the penetration of key ingredients in a formulation.”
