1 S Solvent
Caprylic/Capric Triglycerides (Triesters)
Capric Acid, Caprylic Acid, Glycerin
  • This Ingredient is cautioned because depending on the source it may contain Lauric Acid, which is known to promote the growth of Malassezia. Patch testing is recommended. Some manufacturers also like to refer to this as fractionated coconut oil, which is not accurate because Fractionated coconut oil also typically contains lauric fatty acids. The Caprylic / Capric Triglycerides you want to be using are ones that contain ONLY Caprylic / Capric Fatty Acids and not have traces of anything else in it.

A patch test is a method used to determine whether a specific substance causes allergic inflammation of the skin. Any individual suspected of having allergic contact dermatitis or atopic dermatitis needs to patch test.

We each individually have very unique skin types and this is exactly why one person’s “Holy Grail” Skincare product can be the worst nightmare for someone else. Especially if you have extremely, sensitive reactive skin. Hence, it is super important to test products out on your skin first before plastering them all over your body especially the face only to later pay the price for neglecting this very important step of adding a new product or starting skin care routine.

Start by apply a1/2 pea size amount of product to the back of your ear
each time on clean skin, this must be done long enough so that you are able to see if any ingredient is causing irritation and or an allergic or comedogenic reaction on the skin. Application for two weeks morning and evening can be a good starting point for most people. For individuals with extremely sensitive skin types, these reactions may occur in as little as 24 hrs. You know your skin best so watch it closely as you carry out these tests. And stop if you notice, that the new product is giving you problems.
