MCT: A high-performing Natural Oil

Medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) is a popular skincare ingredient that is often used because of its fun and unique characteristics. It is a lightweight, fast-absorbing and deeply hydrating oil that is silky but not greasy and odorless. When combined with other ingredients in skincare products, MCTs provide multiple health benefits.

You can witness this personally when you discover the magic of Wildflower Skincare Lab’s Lignum Vitae Face Polish. Formulated with organic Lignum Vitae flowers, jasmine, babassu, blue tansy, jojoba esters, olive squalane and medium-chain triglycerides. The all-natural face polish gently exfoliates the skin and carries a mild, tangy aroma. The MCT and olive squalane moisturizes and nourishes the skin while providing an initial silky, smooth feeling.

So, what are MCTs? Medium-chain triglycerides are a natural form of lipids or fat made up of glycerin and two or three fatty acids. Triglycerides are converted from unused calories and stored in the body’s fat cells. They are released into the bloodstream to provide the body with energy. Coconut oil is a rich source of MCTs and provides an abundance of health benefits. MCT oil derived from coconut oil has a faster absorption rate, is lighter than coconut oil and lacks the oily feeling.

There are multiple benefits to having medium-chain triglycerides included in a skincare product. For example, in the Lignum Vitae Face Polish, it not only hydrates the skin but can also strengthen and protect the skin from oxidative stress. It clarifies the skin and revitalizes it while softening your skin for a smoother appearance. MCT oil is a high-performing oil that is a great addition to any skincare product.
