Combo Package of Two Finest Quality Food Safe Oils - Coconut & Palm - Shipped in Two 1 Gallon High Quality HDPE Gallon Safety Sealed Containers.
Coconut Oil - Cocos nucifera - Food safe for culinary use or for soapmaking and skin care products.
Coconut oil is obtained from copra, the dried meat of coconut. Distillers separate the copra from the hull of the coconut. It is dried, crushed, and then expressed to remove the oil. This coconut becomes liquid at 76 degrees.
A percentage of coconut oil in cosmetics is moisturizing; too much of it can be drying. Its saturated nature resists rancidity and makes a very hard soap, while at the same time producing a fluffy lather.
Soapmakers usually combine coconut oil with olive, palm, palm kernel or castor oils for an all-vegetable soap. Some soapmakers use between 20% and 30% of a soap batch as coconut oil.
Palm Oil - RSPO Certified - Sustainable - Elaeis Guinnesis - Food safe for culinary use with 0g trans fat, or for soapmaking and skin care products.
A product of Malaysia and Indonesia, this premium Palm Oil is RSPO Mass Balance, demonstrating Essential Depot's commitment to preservation of the orangutan habitat impacted by conventional palm production. Purchase of RSPO Mass Balance palm oil contributes to the production of certified sustainable palm oil. Designed as a zero trans fat alternative to traditional shortening.
Palm oil makes a nice hard bar when used in combination with other oils such as coconut and olive oil. It is less water soluble and resists melting; it saponifies easily and pulls other oils into saponification quicker. It is also known as vegetable tallow and adds firmness to bar soaps, giving a pale white-yellow color. Palm oil will speed up the soapmaking process. Because the palm oil mixture is more reactive, you must add the essential oils and the nutrients swiftly or the soap will begin to set prematurely.
