Palm Kernel Oil is produced from oil extracted the kernel of the Oil Palm. Along with Coconut, Palm Kernel Oil is one of only a few highly saturated vegetable oils. Because it is a highly saturated oil, it is solid at room temperature and requires gentle warming before use. It's low cost, durability and versatility make it extremely useful and it can be found in an large and varied amount of products. Because of this demand for Palm Kernel Oil and other Palm lipids is increasing at a rapid rate, this increase in demand has come with an environmental cost.

We source our Palm Kernel oil from a supplier whose supply chain is certified as being sustaiable by RSPO.

Due to it's high content of Lauric and Myristic fatty acids, Palm Kernel oil is ideal for making soap and other personal care products. Lauric acid in particular plays a major role in the lathering ability of a soap. This is a very solid oil ideal for soap making.
