Description  more details

Palm Oil - Palm oil is produced from the fruit of the oil palm, or Elaeis Guinnesis tree, which originated in West Guinea. Currently, Malaysia is the largest exporter of Palm Oil in the world. Our Palm oil is physically refined without the use of chemical solvents, thereby reducing the risk of residue contamination. Palm oil is used in cold process soap to add to the hardness of the bar and is typically replaced for tallow in all vegetable oil recipes.

In keeping with our social and ethical responsibility goals, our Palm oil supplier is a member of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), an organization that supports sustainable palm oil production. For more information see their website here.

Note: Yes! These bags are boilable! Please make sure that you use our Double Boiler Maker so the plastic doesn't melt on direct contact with the metal of the hot pan.

NOTE: the 5 gallon pail holds 35 lbs weight of oil

INCI: Elaeis guineensis (Palm) Oil

A palm I can use!
I've never liked using palm oil because of the need to heat-and-mix. (Not only is that a hassle, but I only soap for myself and so only use small amounts of the stuff at a time (if I use palm at all) - so what does one do with the rest of the oil, especially if you have no fixed recipe? Repeated heating and cooling can't be a good thing.) In fact I have been leery of palm since the last batch I used it in separated and had issues. (The consensus was that it was not properly mixed.) I did have one old soap with palm that I liked, though, so I decided to try it again. I sized my recipe to use one lb of palm oil, and this new packaging rocks! I was able to nuke the oil in the microwave and mix it thoroughly, and the tiny bit that was left over (after weighing out 16 oz) just got discarded with the packaging. No muss, no fuss, nothing left over to store or deal with, palm oil thoroughly mixed - this one lb boilable/nukeable bag is a WIN for us small soapers! Thanks!

Great product and the packaging worked great
I was leary of the packaging for this and the cocounut oil I purchased. I decided to at least try them, given the other reviews and the great price. So glad I did. I was able to lay the bag on it's side in my microwave. I have a higher wattage, so I decided to do a minute at a time, and I only needed that one minute. It was liquid enough that I was able to mush it around really good to blend and then pour what I needed. I'll definitely buy this again. The packaging helps make the most of the limited space I have.

Need choice in container
I really like the palm oil in soaps and lotions. Bag is great for soap because I use all of it. Likes the white plastic container for making lotion because I don't use it all. I also like that it is sustainable.

So convenient!
Love the bags and how convenient it is to use! Before I begin soap making I fill my kitchen sink with hot tap water and let the bag soak for a bit. Mash bag and soak a bit more. It softens the oil enough to pour it. Once I've weighed out what I need, I just nuke the oil for a minute to fully melt it. Easy peasy.

Extremely convenient
I've used the 7 lb bag for years and love it! It fits perfectly in my microwave, and I have one of the cheapest microwaves you can get. I lay it on it's side, and although there isn't enough room left for it to actually turn on the turntable (I personally think turntables are useless) I have never had a problem with it. I have also bought the empty bags in which to pre-mix my oils. I melt down everything, use a funnel to pour into a bag and store them in my store room. When I get ready to make a 4 lb batch of soap (the bags would hold much more) I just stick the whole bag into the micro for 2 mins to melt. Ultra convenient.
