Lotioncrafter CCT 60/40 MB is created by the esterification of glycerol with specific medium chain fatty acids. Medium chain fatty acids are chains of carbon atoms primarily between 8 and 10 atoms long containing no double bonds subject to oxidation. These fatty acids are separated out of palm oil by hydrolysis and distillation and then esterified with glycerol, creating a product that is stable and liquid at room temperature.
Lotioncrafter CCT 60/40 MB is a light-textured, very clear, odorless, non-staining and non-greasy liquid oil with an almost indefinite shelf life. It is easily absorbed into skin making it an excellent carrier oil for massage oils and essential oils. It is light enough to spray through a pump sprayer. Its stability makes it an excellent emollient for lotions and creams.
Regular coconut or palm oil contains many long chain fatty acids (or triglycerides), is solid at room temperature and subject to oxidation (creating the possibility of rancidity). Lotioncrafter CCT 60/40 MB may be substituted for some of the more fragile vegetable oils that tend to become rancid and for some of the more expensive carrier oils to keep costs under control.
