Fractionated Coconut Oil Review

I received this item in exchange for an honest review. Image and blurb source

I've heard some absolutely wonderful things about using coconut oil for beauty purposes, so I was really excited to be given the chance to review fractionated coconut oil by Majestic Pure Cosmeceuticals. Allure has complied a pretty good list of things you can use coconut oil for, but my readers will be interested to know it can be used as a cuticle oil (which I didn't do, oops!)

Advantages of Fractionated Coconut Oil Coconut oil has long been used all over the world for its many therapeutic and other benefits to the skin. It has antiviral and antibacterial properties, a wonderful balance of saturated fats in its natural form and helps stimulate hair growth. Many aromatherapy recipes use coconut oil for the various therapeutic benefits it offers. Fractionated coconut oil is a fraction of the coconut oil from which almost all the long chain triglycerides are removed, thus leaving mainly the medium-chain triglycerides and making it an absolutely saturated oil. This saturation gives it a very long shelf life and greatly increased stability. In addition, fractionating raises the comparative concentration of Capric acid and Caprylic acid, thus giving it more of antioxidant and disinfecting effect.

I mostly used this as a lotion to treat my horrible dry skin on my hands. When I received this, my hands were extremely sore, cracked and red from our cold Wisconsin weather. Unfortunately I wasn't really too impressed. If anything, it seemed to dry out my hands even more so I stopped using it in this manner and then my hands did begin to heal. It did seem to get rid of some of the redness at least on a temporary application. I do have sensitive skin and I respond to herbal remedies very well so I suppose it's possible I just used too much.

Mostly now I've been using this to treat my chapped lips and it is doing a wonderful job of healing them! I've tried every product I can get my hands on to heal these sore lips and nothing has ever healed them completely.  This coconut oil is doing a wonderful job of repairing my lips and for that I am ecstatic. I can't remember my lips every being as soft as they are now, even though they are still a bit chapped, they're obviously healing.

I also used this to treat a small burn on my finger, and it did seem to help the burn heal pretty quickly.

The bottle is 16 ounces. I used maybe a fifth of it in about a month, so for me that's not too bad a value. Depending on how I use this, it will easily last several more months. My sole complaint about this oil is that no matter how careful I am, it seems I always get some of the oil outside of the bottle. There is always a residue on my stand where I keep this - but then, I suppose I could use it as wood polish as well.

I will point out this oil is for external use only so unfortunately you can't use it in your cooking, which is too bad - I need to get some coconut oil to cook with as well because it's definitely very healthy! On that note, just like the Emu oil, my cat Winslow was absolutely in love with this oil and licked my fingers after I used this and yes, tried to lick the bottle. Like the Emu oil, he appears to be fine :P

My thanks to Majestic Pure Cosmeceuticals for providing me with this product to sample. You can purchase this oil on Amazon, where it retails at $28.95 for a 16 ounce bottle. It is currently on sale for $14.95 and eligible for free shipping on $35+ orders.
