Fractionated Coconut Oil for a Simple, Penetrating, Plant-Based Wood Conditioner
Fractionated Coconut Oil is a clear, vegan product with a naturally very-thin consistency. It's an ideal choice when needing a penetrating oil solution that does not polymerize. This means it will soak deep into the wood pours, prevent drying, and help repel moisture when it comes into water contact. For this reason it's great for regularly treating cutting boards, butcher block countertops, wooden utensils, and any other food-contact surface. It has undergone specialized processing to ensure it remains stable and doesn't become rancid when applied to wood. Whether you're a seasoned woodworker or have a lot of cutting boards at home, our product is an easy way to preserve and protect wood from drying and cracking. Since it's sourced from palm, its also a responsible choice for those seeking a completely plant-based and sustainable wood finish solution.
Difference Between Fractionated Coconut Oil and Virgin Coconut Oil
Fractionated Coconut Oil is obtained through a specialized process called fractionation, which separates the different components of coconut oil based on their melting points. This results in a liquid oil primarily composed of medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), which remain in liquid form at room temperature. While regular coconut oil is solid and retains the distinct coconut flavor and aroma, fractionated coconut oil is odorless, flavorless, and stays liquid, making it suitable and completely safe for conditioning wood. In contrast, virgin or unrefined coconut oil is derived from fresh coconut meat, undergoes minimal processing, and has a solid consistency at room temperature due to its high saturated fat content. Without fractionation it will spoil and go rancid, rendering in unsuitable for wood conditioning.
