Caprylic/Capric Triglycerides

Capryl/capric triglyceride is derived from coconut oil and glycerin and is considered an excellent emollient and skin plumping ingredient. It should be noted that its blend of fatty acids rebuilds the skin's surface and helps it resist moisture loss.
Capryl/capric triglyceride can also act as a thickener or penetration enhancer, but its main job is to moisturize and replenish the skin. This ingredient's value to the skin is enhanced by the fact that it is considered gentle.
As a raw material, caprylic acid/capric acid triglyceride is a clear, non-viscous liquid. It is known to improve the spreadability of formula.
Safety assessments have deemed capric/capryl triglyceride safe in cosmetic formulations at concentrations below 50%, with reported uses varying between 0.1% and 35%.
Despite what is often claimed on the internet's skin care advice pages, there is no research showing that caprylic acid/capric triglyceride is "comedogenic" or pore clogging. (This assumption is often linked to its relationship to coconut oil.) Theoretically, because its molecular weight of 408 is below 500 Daltons, capryl/caprine triglyceride technically has the ability to penetrate the pore lining, but even that does not inherently mean that it will clog the pores.
