Botanical Name: Elaeis guineensis

Extraction Method: Cold Pressed

Processing Type: RBD (Refined, Bleached, and Deodorized)

Obtained From: Fruit

Origin: Malaysia

Description: There is often a lot of confusion over Palm Kernel Oil and Palm Oil. Both can be used interchangeably, but there are differences. Palm Oil is derived from the palm fruit whereas Palm Kernel comes from the kernel of the fruit. Palm Oil is derived from the fruit of the palm tree. It is semi-solid at room temperature and is rich in palmitic acid, Vitamin E, Vitamin K and Magnesium. It contains natural anti-oxidants and works well in cold-process soap making. This variety of Palm Oil is Refined, Bleached and Deodorized (RBD).

Color: Clear when liquid, white to slightly pale yellow when solid.

Aromatic Description: Palm Carrier Oil has very little scent characteristic of most carrier oils.

Common Uses: Our Palm Carrier Oil is refined and is almost exclusively used by cold process soap manufacturers.

Consistency: Semi-solid at room temperatures - gentle heating is required during production.

Absorption: Palm Carrier Oil will leave an oily feeling on your skin if applied neat.

Shelf Life: Users can expect a shelf life of up to 2 years with proper storage conditions (cool, out of direct sunlight). Refrigeration after opening is recommended. Please refer to the Certificate of Analysis for current Best Before Date.

Note: The facilities from which we purchase this product do not process peanuts or manufacture peanut oil.

Cautions: None Known.

Storage: It is recommended that cold-pressed carrier oils be kept in a cool dark place to maintain freshness and achieve maximum shelf life. If refrigerated, bring to room temperature before using.

Love this palm oil! Works great in all my soaps. For all the people complaining about the impossible to open bucket lid, pay attention to where it says to cut and dont cut off that one part that is the tab to easily open the bucket. I did that the first time and had to get my fiancee to open it but on my next bucket i realized i had cut off the tab and its so easy to open :)

The oil makes nice soap but it does not melt evenly. There is a component with a higher melting point than most, so there are little bits that hang on for a long time. If you have access to a device used to open preserved specimens, borrow it because it's perfect for opening the pots. New Directions should offer these since they are a time and frustration saver.

Good quality for a great price. Absolutely hate the bucket lid, ended up transferring to ice cream buckets for easier access. The empty bucket makes a good large volume mixing bowl though.

I have been ordering this product for years in the 20 litre pails. I still think the product is great but I hate the 5 litre pails. They are impossible for me to open. I, too, had to wait for my husband to get home. It would be great if the 20 litre pails were still an option for those of us who prefer them

The oil itself is great, but the bin it came in was absolutely impossible to open! It took some serious struggles, using various tools and finally waiting for my husband to arrive home to help me open it as it wouldn't budge!

This oil is a MUST HAVE in my cp soap, it is actually very easy to get this product out of the container as it is very smooth. I use it with cocnut oil and olive oil and it makes a nice white bar. Thanks for such a great product!

This is a "Must Have" for CP soap. I've noticed some people have a hard time with the container the oil comes in. I just put mine in hot water in the kitchen sink for about 10 minutes, let it soften and liquify and then pour it out into a different container (I use a bucket with lid and once it hardens again you can just scoop it out).

This is a great quality palm oil at a really good price. It will scoop out nicely if you put it someplace warm for a few hours or so before using. It is pretty hard straight from the fridge.

NDA's Palm oil is darker (much more yellow) and have an oily smell compared to the palm oil I'm used to buy. It's pricier too. It's not bad quality, but I prefer a less yellow oil at a better price.

Perfect for soap making. Makes a beautiful, hard and great lathering soap. Price is excellent as well. Use a large cooking spoon with a long handle and you will easily be able to remove the product from the jar.

Excellent high quality oil. Excellent results in hard soaps and liquid soaps. Many of our clients have expressed a concern over allergic reactions to coconut oil, and we therefore elected to make all our soap products with Palm Kernel oil with wonderful results.

I love using this oils in soapmaking! It's a good replacement for coconut oil. I purchased 4kg of Palm Kernel oil. Even though it was packaged in the wide-mouth container, it's still not wide enough and it's difficult to scoop out such hard oil.

A good product but unfortunate that New Directions packages their hard oils in containers that are meant for liquid oils. It makes using the product in small amounts extremely difficult. I\'m now stuck heating the product so I can pour it - and then transferring it to a more efficient container. If these hard at room temperature oils were packaged in containers similar to what margarine is packaged in it would make a lot more sense.

New Directions Aromatics Response:

We sell to many different customers, in many different regions. In some regions, these products remain liquid, and require liquid containers. Because this product easily liquefies in a hot water bath, we have elected to maintain this style of packaging. To date, we have not had any customers voice similar concerns. We regret the inconvenience nonetheless.
