Medium Chain Triglycerides
Medium Chain Triglyceride (MCT) is a unique type of fat with a shorter chain length (C8-C10), as opposed to Long Chain Triglycerides (C16-C18) that offers consumers several dietary and health benefits. MCTs offer a quick source of energy for people on the go that enables them to manage their hectic lifestyles. MCTs have a small molecular structure and by-pass the normal digestive process and are metabolised directly in the small intestines where they are converted into an energy source. Compared to long chain Triglycerides such as canola or soybean oil. MCTs are more rapidly broken down into energy.

MASESTER™ E6300
MASESTERE6300 is a medium chain Triglycerides (MCTs) derived from heat-stable refined C8-C10 acids and refined Glycerine from 100% refined coconut oil.

MASESTERE6300 is gluten free, allergen free and non-GMO. It has also been halal and kosher for Passover certified. It is odourless and tasteless (similar to drinking water), and hence easy and palatable enough to be added to any food/ drink, or consumed as it is.

MASESTERTM E6300 provides the following health benefits:
Enhances fat burning, which has a positive effect on one’s metabolism
Regulates body weight, as it is not stored as body fat
Influences the slowing progression of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease
Improves mental capacity as it serves as a fast-acting brain fuel

Medium Chain Monoglyceride 
MASESTER™ E8120
MASESTER™ E8120 is a mono-diglyceride of medium chain fatty acids (mainly caprylic and capric). It is an excellent solvent for many organic compounds including steroids. It is also a useful emulsifier for water in oil systems. E8120 is recommended for creams, lotions, ointments and lipsticks. It has pharmaceutical and nutritional applications as a carrier (vehicle), solubiliser, emulsifier/co-emulsifier, bioavailability enhancer, and penetration enhancer (dermatological applications).

Isopropyl Myristate and Isopropyl Palmitate
MASESTER™ E1140 (Isopropyl Myristate), MASESTER™ E1160 (Isopropyl Palmitate)
Isopropyl Myristate and Isopropyl Palmitate are Esters produced by reacting isopropyl alcohol with Myristic acid and Palmitic acid respectively. Both Esters are extensively used for their moisturising and skin-conditioning properties in personal care applications such as:
All-purpose skin care cream
Hand and body lotions
Suntan oil
Sunscreen lotion
Vanishing cream
Anti-perspirant spray
