Palm Kernel Oil

Posted on





Elaesis guineensis


Like coconut and babassu oils, palm kernel oil contains a high amount of lauric acid. Palm kernel oil is good in soap formulations for adding firmness and building lather. It helps speed up saponification and results in a soap with a smooth texture.


Palm kernel oil can be added to skin care products where firmness is essential, such as stick formulations and balms. Its main benefits for skin are its moisturising and protective properties.
