Coconut Oil vs Coconut Acid

I apologize in advance for what might be a stream of small questions as I begin to research additional ingredients to the shave cream and the after shave cream I am working on.

What is the difference between Coconut Acid and Coconut Oil? I have googles this and can not find an answer to the difference.

Thanks!

    the oil is in the form of triglycerides whereas the acid is not.

  • Ah! Thank you.  Would the difference in the oil (easily accessible) versus the Acid make a large difference in a shave cream of the kind I have been making Belassi?  For this purpose would they be interchangeable?

    More or less. The oil produces glycerin as part of the saponification reaction. The acid doesn't; the acid reacts a lot faster.

  • Ah! Ok... That helps.

    Thanks again for your help (you in particular on this project of mine...:-)
