Its hydrogenated so it will be solid at room temp.
You aren't eating it, so the trans fats from the hydrogenation doesn't matter. The reason its there is to moisturize the skin and prevent irritation.

Hydrogen is 100% natural. Your products is 00% safe. Hydrogen is not poisonous and many food grade oils and fats are hydrogenated. , When added to oils in a process called Hydrogenation it thickens them -liquids turn into soft solids. It also raises the melting point of oils and fats so that fats and oils that melt easily at body temperature or below will melt at a higher temperature and fell less oily and greasy. Hydrogen -the basis of hydrogenated anything -is the most common element in the universe. Without hydrogen we wouldn't have water and without water we wouldn't have any life on earth. We wouldn't have the sun without hydrogen either. Look up hydrogen on google to learn how important this element is to the universe and the life on earth.

Hydrogenating is a harmless process that turns a liquid into a soft solid. It's how margarine is made out of corn oil.
