Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride

INCI: Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride

Function: Emollient

Benefits: Hydration, antioxidant

The Science: Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride is commonly derived from coconut oil and glycerin, though it can sometimes be sourced from palm. It acts as an emollient to help nourish the skin and provide hydration due to its fatty acid content. Fatty acids are crucial in maintaining a healthy stratum corneum (the outermost layer of the skin) which prevents moisture loss.

The Story: Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride helps to provide moisture to the skin creating a luxurious texture in skincare formulations.
