  • Palm Oil is the reddish-orange oil derived from the pulp of the fruit of the African palm tree.
  • Palm Oil is contains a very high percentage of saturated fat.
  • Palm Oil is used with other oils in soap making. Pulls other oils into saponification and makes soaps less melting.
  • Palm Oil is from the fruit of a palm tree, (Elaeis guineensis), native to tropical West Africa and cultivated in Africa, Indonesia, Malaysia, and tropical America as the source of palm oil. Growing to a height of 15 m, the palms produce fleshy fruits, 3 cm long, containing a white kernel within a hard black shell.
  • Palm oil is extracted from the pulp and kernel and used in making soaps, margarine, lubricants, etc. When used in soaps, palm oil creates a hard, long lasting bar of soap that is mild and cleanses well. Palm oil has similar characteristics to tallow in soaps, and has been used in soap-making since about 1850 when the quantity of available tallow was insufficient to meet the demand for soap.
  • Palm Oil is the oil from nuts of oil palms especially the African oil palm
