What is the difference between fractionated and regular (virgin) coconut oil?
Regular coconut oil, commonly labelled as “virgin coconut oil” is the base type of coconut oil. It’s usually thicker with a mild coconut flavor and aroma, and turns solid at low temperatures. Fractionated coconut oil, on the other hand, is actually regular coconut oil that is processed to make it ultralight, odorless, and stay liquid even in low temperatures. This makes fractionated coconut oil more easily absorbed by the skin and less likely to clog pores.
