Fractionated coconut oil is tasteless and odourless. It is also more expensive than regular coconut oil. Apart from skincare and haircare, fractionated coconut oil can also be used as a dietary supplement. Fractionated coconut oil is also sold as liquid coconut oil which is marketed as edible coconut oil.
