Is MCT Oil light sensitive like Avocado Oil and Olive Oil?Updated 2 years ago

Great question! 🙌 We would only recommend using Avocado Oil or Olive Oil if it is protected in a dark glass bottle. We also ensure our labels are dark and cover as much of the Avocado Oil and Olive Oil bottles as possible. The difference with Avocado Oil and Olive Oil to MCT Oil is that they are monounsaturated fats which are susceptible to oxidation from light. Whereas MCT Oil and Coconut Oil are saturated fats and much more stable. Therefore Coconut / MCT Oil does not need to be kept in a dark bottle. 🥥
