WHY I USE PALM OIL

PALM OIL IS ONE OF THE MAIN INGREDIENTS IN MY SOAPS – SO WHY AND WHAT IS IT?  I AM GLAD YOU ASKED! 

This oil comes mostly from the African Palm.   It is extracted from the pulp and kernel of the fruit.  The color is orange - red because it is rich in beta-carotene but becomes white when boiled. 

Benefits in soap making include:

  • High in Vitamin A and E
  • Helps fight free radicals thus reducing signs of aging
  • Moisturizing and nourishing
  • Can stop negative effects of sun damage
  • Helps heal acne
  • Keeps skin soft and supple
  • In soap making it helps give the soap a long life and rich lather

Once again, with goat milk as another main ingredient my soaps are nourishing, healing and hydrating! 

**There is much controversy on the subject of palm oil.  While I completely agree that producers can be destructive to the environment and disrupt things terribly, others can be very responsible and not destroy the environment.  The Palm oil that I use comes from a source that is a member of RSPO (Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil).
