Botanical Name: Elaeis guineensis

Extraction Method: Cold Pressed

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

Obtained From: Kernels

Origin: Malaysia

Description: Palm Kernel Carrier Oil is derived from the fully hydrogenated refined, bleached and deodorized (RBD) palm kernel oil. It is non-GMO and considered non–allergenic. 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 Oil comes from the kernel of the fruit.

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

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

Common Uses: Palm Kernel Carrier Oil is widely used in soap manufacturing to give great lather. It is also used to harden soaps and aid soap formulas to saponify quickly. Palm Kernel Carrier Oil has moisturizing and skin softening properties and can be used in skin care manufacturing.

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

Absorption: Palm Kernel 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.

This is a great oil to use for soap (cp and liquid) and body butters. I'm going to try it in lip balm next.

This was my first palm oil purchase from NDA and I was happy with the product overall. This worked great in my CP soap. My only complaint is what I had to go through to get it out of the jar--lets just say a butter knife and lots of elbow grease was involved. It wasnt until much later that it dawned on me to place the jar in some warm water for a little while to loosen things up..... It would have been great if the palm oil was in chunks or in an easier to use package. I will still give the product itself 5 stars because of the awesome price and the quality. Another great product from NDA!

I bought this oil based on customer reviews since I am new to making soap and no prior experience in making lotions. I melted it with stearic acid and mixed into my M&P soap and it worked beautifully my soap was so white and hard. I'll continue to buy this oil and I love the fact that it's priced just right for someone like me who is on a budget. Thank you NDA

great product but this packaging does not work for me. it didn't come sealed properly and it's so cumbersome. i have to microwave it each time for use which doesn't seem like it would be good for the product. i would try flakes next time.

I've tried it in my CP soaps for a few times now, but was hoping NDA would carry this wonderful product. You can imagine how happy I was when I saw this! Thanks a lot NDA!

Bought this in bulk and it came in a pail bucket. The oil is solid, so you'd have to hack at it with some sort of instrument, etc. to derive pieces and flakes.... and then melt it, if you're using it for soap. The palm helps to make a nice hard soap bar. I particularly bought palm oil from NDA because it's from a sustainable source, at an affordable price. There's a place that sells it cheaper, but it isn't sustainable. Buying the oil from a sustainable source helps save forests and the animals they shelter (orangutans)! So do research before deciding to purchase ingredients for soaping... it can make a difference.

As with all of NDAs products, this is a high quality palm kernel oil. I found the packaging to be quite inconvenient. It came in one solid chunk in a very thin plastic jar that I couldn't heat up easily to melt the oil. I ended up cutting the whole jar apart and putting the solid block of oil in a plastic bag. It would be easier to handle if the jar did not have a lip, or if it came in a bag.
