We purchase our organic sustainable palm oil from one of the most reputable sources in the country. This palm is the best! It will need to be melted when you receive it. To melt the palm, take the cap off the container and place it in a warm water bath on the stove until it melts. Then put the cap back on and give it a few swishes. Palm contains stearic, and if not incorporated properly throughout the oil it can be harder to work with or create stearic spots (little white spots) in soap.
Palm is a wonderfully conditioning yet hard oil for soap. It produces a creamy lather and a hard bar. It is also a whiter oil and lends to creating very bright colors in soap when used as a base.
