In most cases, the purpose of water within an ingredient list is to act as a solvent - this means it's there to help dissolve other ingredients into the formulation.

Water also happens to be necessary for all life on Earth. If you see this, drink a glass of water. Stay hydrated!

Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride is an emollient, solvent, and texture enhancer. It is considered a skin-softener by helping the skin prevent moisture loss.

Within a product, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride can thicken the product and make spreadability easier by dissolving clumping compounds. An added benefit of Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride is its antioxidant properties.

Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride is made by combining glycerin with coconut oil, forming a clear liquid. Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride has not been found to be toxic for human use in concentrations under 50%.

While there is an assumption Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride can clog pores due to it being derived from coconut oil, there is no research supporting this.
