Description: Coconut RBD (Refined, Bleached and Deodorized) Carrier Oil is solid at room temperature. Coconut Carrier Oil is a very versatile carrier oil. It is excellent to form a barrier on the skin and absorbs quickly into the skin. Coconut oil can be used as a skin moisturizer, helping with dry skin. It also reduces protein loss when used in hair.
Color: Clear when liquid, white when solid.
Aromatic Description: Coconut Carrier Oil has a very slight coconut scent, but is generally considered odorless.
Common Uses: Coconut (RBD) Carrier Oil can be used to create variety of products such as massage oils, body balms, lip balms, lotions and cold process soaps. It is one of the most preferred oils in soap making because soap made with coconut oil tends to be hard, and retains more water than those made with other oils and therefore increases manufacturer yields. It is more soluble in hard water and salt water than other soaps allowing it to lather more easily. Coconut oil is also used in cosmetic manufacturing industries.
Consistency: Solid at room temperatures. Gentle heating is required.
Absorption: Coconut Oil creates an oily, protective barrier on the skin.
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.

Rating: The absolute best oil for soapmaking. I feel comfortable using a lot without feeling like I'm throwing away money.
By:Suni, Lehigh Acres, Florida Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 16-Nov-2012
Rating: I bought a gallon of this a while back to use in a moisturizer I make.Although it worked well I did not like the smell. It smelled like chemicals nothing like coconut at all. The texture was great and made my product smooth and creamy. The great thing is once mixed with other oils and heated to make final product the smell disappears! The price is great for the amount you get from New Directions.
Rating: I used this for a baby lotion for my 2-year old son who is prone to dry itchy skin. I added rice bran oil and shea butter too and it turned out really nice with a really smooth texture! The total percentage of oils added up to only 13% but it is rich enough because of the macadamia nut oil. My son's skin is a lot smoother and less itchy now. I may reduce the oil percentage to 12% on the next batch.

Rating: great coconut oil for cp soap, absolutely perfect, would purchase again.
By:Meredith, Los Angeles, California Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 22-Aug-2012
Rating: Amazing and very versatile product. I make not only CP shampoo bars with this as I use this as the bulk oil in my CP soap, but also lip balms, lotions, and homemade deodorant. Great quality! Thank you, NDA
By:Sylvia, Brooklyn, New York Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 29-Apr-2011
Rating: This is such an economical coconut oil. I have always used RBD and I really like the convenience of a wide mouth bucket, makes it easy to scoop out product and it is a good price for 1.32 gallons.
By:Lisa, Pellston, Michigan Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 03-May-2008
Rating: AMAZING Product! Love it! Slides nice and makes great product!
By:Carolyn, Aylmer, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I absolutely love this oil! I use it mainly for massage and body care and find it beautifully smooth in application and it absorbs quite well into the skin. This oil also carries fragrance beautifully.
For those concerned about liberating the oil from the container: don't worry, it's a breeze with the wide mouth (4L) and took no time at all, even as a solid.
I will definitely purchase this again!
By:Katherine, London, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: This is the first thing I ever ordered from NDA and it has been a staple in my body products ever since. I buy the 4L drums now and they last forever even though I use this coconut oil for: cp soap, face masks and lip balm! And the price is unbelieveable! I personally haven't been able to find a more affordable coconut oil anywhere else!
By:Jalisa, Brampton, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: GREAT product - have purchased many times!!! We have used many different coconut oils in the past, and this is by far our favourite!! 4L in a wide tub with carrying handle - easy to scoop out!!!!
By:Laura, Niagara Falls, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I love this product! The coconut oil lasts such a long time, and is an excellent price! I use it in all my products! I've bought at least three batches of the 4L size!
The container is hard to get it out of so I just purchased one of the large white platic pails, melted the oil, and transfered it in. So much easier now!
By:Jesi, Winnipeg, Manitoba Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Excellent value! Adds a ton of lather and moisture to soaps. Comes in plastic jar which is great for storing.
By:Robyn, Saco, Maine
Date: Loyal Customer Since: 20-Jul-2011
Rating: Great quality oil. The packaging is wonderful. The lid comes off of the large drum so the product is removed so easily. Sure beats the soft plastic containers that some suppliers (NOT NDA) offer. Glad i got it at a great price.
By:Farkhanda, Oakville, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: This oil is a must in my cp soaps.creates a nice hard bar with creamy lather.
By:Derek, Portsmouth, New Hampshire Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 01-Jul-2011
Rating: This oil is a staple in all of my soaps and shampoo bars. I always have it on hand. And the price is amazing! I checked the price of coconut oil at my local health food store--more than twice the price! OW!
By:Marie, Calgary, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: This is my favorite oil! I use it in everything and i am amazed by the results i see. It makes my hair soft and silky and my skintone has never been so even. It also makes a lovely bath treatment(mixed with dry milk; i add rosemary and cedarwood eo to make a nice pine-like scent or lavendar and thyme for a muscle relaxent) which i use several times a week. Everyone has complimented me on how soft my skin is ever since i started using it. This one is a keeper for sure.
By:Lorriane, Gardena, California Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 19-Jan-2010
Rating: This is part of my own body and shampoo. It is giving me back my hair color with dye (which I don't do) It is slowly coming back and I don't have to use cream rinse any more. Thank you. My hair is softer and not so brittle.
Rating: I use this oil in my business (massage therapist) and I love it. It has enough glide and grip for Swedish and deep tissue massage. At $25 a gallon compared to $65 a gallon of massage cream this is a great buy. Also, one gallon of Coconut Oil will out last 2 gallons of massage cream. A little goes a long way and I do not have to keep applying this oil on the body as I do the massage cream.
Rating: Great product. Very subtle sent so it doesn't overpower my products (chapstick, lotions, under eye cream, ect.). I love to use it as a hair mask every other week. Just leave it in for and hour and rinse with a mild shampoo, helps to save my hair (especially after coloring). And what a great price!

Rating: A staple ingredient in making CP soap! I love how hard it makes my soaps. Very affordable too!
By:Heather, Colorado Springs, Colorado Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 26-Aug-2009
Rating: This came packaged in a white plastic jar with a very wide lid for easy access. Okay, this is an excellent product for really dry skin. My mom has been using this the most on her hands and arms and I can feel the difference. Her skin is smoother and feels more hydrated. Best of all, her skin is not left oily. She loves this and the price is excellent. I just wish it smelled like coconut instead of like nothing. But... with the price being so great and the results even better, you can't lose. Buy it.

By:Betsy, Brockville, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Great product and great price. I was so happy to see the new wide opening container. Raves to ND for listening to their customers.
By:Judy, Orangeville, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I couldn't make my soaps as lovely without coconut! This is an amazing deal -- I bought the Gal for just over $17 and I can make dozens of batches of soap and other products. It is a little awkward to get the oil out, as the gal jug does not fit in the microwave, so I spoon out what I need. It gets a little messy when I get to the bottom of the jug but that just means my arms end up super moisturized :)
By:Amanda, Norco, California

Rating: I love NDA's coconut oil. I use it in all most all of my cp soaps. I purchased the 5 gal bucket this time to save a little and I am pleased with the packaging.You can't go wrong with theese prices!
By:Kristie, Portsmouth, New Hampshire Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 18-Nov-2009
Rating: I noticed the poor review for coconut oil, or the container it comes in. I have tried pure coconut oil from other sources and I didn't find the wait time for it to melt out of place. Come to think of it, I bought coconut oil in my last order and compared to other supplier, ND's container opening is actually either the largest I've used or average. Besides, for the value and quantity of the oil, I wouldn't complain.
By:Nattassia, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Excellent product. I use it in my CP soap. This is the best price I've found. Thanks NDA!
By:Shannon, Comox, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I was pretty disappointed when I saw how small the opening was on the pour spout of the bottle. The product is wonderful inside, and after I melt the entire bottle down, I am putting it into a wide mouth canning jar for future uses.
By:Linda, Council Bluffs, Iowa Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 23-Jan-2010
Rating: i cant believe the amazing price on this coconut oil! my daughter has a lot of skin issues and she puts coconut oil straight on in the shower. i love NDA!
By:Stephanie, London, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: This is a great value on a high quality CO. I bought the 33 oz and am in love with it. It's going into all my creation. The only drawback is the packaging. For as big of a bottle a wide mouth opening would be better to scoop out the solid oil. I'm going to do one melt and part it out to smaller containers so I'm not liquefying the big container over and over.
Rating: You just can't make a great cp soap without ND, or this carrier oil!
By:Shannon, Schenectady, New York Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 24-Jan-2006
Rating: Pretty much odorless. Love the price! NDA is awsome.
By:Kristie, Portsmouth, New Hampshire Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 18-Nov-2009
Rating: I order my coconut oil from New Directions since years now and the quality is always number one. There is a very very slight fresh little smell -one has to force himself to smell it - but it does not affect any product in any way. It has a very good shelf life and is easy to use. If one does not want to lose time with the 4 kilos containers, let the container sit in hot water, then, transfer in a bigger container. This coconut oil is always fresh and is always a lovable oil.
By:Louise, Montreal, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I really love this product for soap making and use it for my dry bath soak sea salt oils...Good cost!
Rating: Almost completely odorless, great price, & great quality. I am so glad I found ND!
By:Terri, Atlanta, Georgia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 06-Aug-2009
Rating: This oil is really easy to melt; I just put the bottle under running hot water, or leave it in the sink with hot water (not boiling, just hot from the tap), and it doesn't take long at all! Great product, as always.
By:Amelie, Montreal, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I received my coconut oil today and it is absolutely lovely. There is no scent at all that I can smell, and it is of very high quality. I look forward to using it in my CP soaps.
By:Wendy, Regina, Saskatchewan Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Good coconut oil. The only down side is the container! I'm use to use a spoon to take it off.... But just warm the bottle a bit and it works like a charm!
By:Jacinthe, Montréal, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: This is the only coconut oil I use. It makes a great, quality soap! Work great other processes too.
One of the first products I bought from NDA and fell in love!
By:Christina, Brantford, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: This is an excellent oil at a great price. I use it in all my CP soaps. I usually set it out somewhere warm for a few hours before using to make it easier to scoop out. Straight from the fridge it is pretty hard.
By:Sonya, Hubley, Nova Scotia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I disagree with the other posters about the bottle. I find it's perfect, you can squeeze out dollops at a time, without any problems. It's not like the container is glass. The oil itself is great, apply at night and wake up with noticeably more supple skin. Absolutely wonderful, I can't wait to make my body butter with it!

By:Tammy, Plumas, Manitoba Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: What can I say other than I love it. New Directions offers a high quality coconut oil at a terrific price. I like it because it seems to be very pure. Other suppliers whose coconut oil I have purchased caused my daughter who has severe allergies and sensitive skin to break out in hives but New Directions Coconut Oil did not cause her to have any negative reactions.
By:Romeo, Guelph, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Very pure with no scent at all. Excellent product!
By:Alexandra, Nanaimo, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: This stuff is GREAT!!! Since this stuff stays hard when the temperature is little cooler and melts when it's a little warmer, I use this as a cream after my shower. I transferred some coconut oil to a jar, and then scoop it out and rub in on after a shower. It melts on cskin ontact and absorbs in nicely and quickly but stays solid when stored in the jar. Makes my skin feel so soft and smooth. I'm switching over to this as a permanent body cream for the winter!!
By:Maggie, North York, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I've noticed most of the reviews here were from soapmakers, but let me be the first to say that I've succeeded in incorporating this oil into a CARRIER Oil Blend with great success! My carrier oil blend is used mostly for massage oils, and I used this oil in a 1:36 ratio, with the majority being comprised of the Sweet Almond Oil. I had to submerge the container in warm water to liquify the coconut oil, but once it was combined with the other oils, the ratio was small enough to not worry about it hardening again. Not only that, but it adds to the shelf life of my carrier oil blend! I love it, and by itself, I couldn't resist dabbing my fingers into it to see how it felt on the skin. Silky smooth!! I know this oil will only enhance the blend I've created, and I love it so far!

Rating: In my area, coconut oil is SO hard to find and certainly not at your prices. It is a must in making cold-process soap since it improves the lather greatly. I have already recommended Newdirections to another soap-making person, and I will continue to order from your company.

Rating: The Coconut Oil is great, and I got it for 20% off so it was a great price.
It is really good deep conditioner for your hair. Mix equal parts lemon juice and coconut oil, rub it into your roots and let it sit for a while. It also helps with Dandruff.

By:Trudy, Warkworth, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Coconut oil is an absolute necessity in soapmaking. It produces a nice lather. I order a lot, as it is always fresh and pure, without any scent and its shelf life is long, even under changing temperatures.
I am glad of this 20% off offer from New Directions. I have so much soap to make before fall !
By:Louise, Montreal, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Coconut oil make the best lather on CP soap!
I always add coconut oil in my lip balm, body balm and massage oil (in small quantity)
In massage oil, it's make a non greassy oil and a thicker oil when you mix it with other liquid carrier oil.
I just love it !
By:Caroline, Bearn, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I have been ordering my soap making oils from New Directions for over 6 years. Their coconut is, by far, the best on the market. Price is excellent even without a discount- yet given the current 20% off, buying large amounts is reasonable!
By:Kate, Hamilton, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Coconut oil from New Directions is the best product at the best price in all of Canada. I have shopped around and other distributor's prices just don't compare. If I couldn't get coconut oil for my soapmaking business at this amazing price from New Directions I wouldn't be in business! It's as simple as that.
