Palm Kernel Oil
Our wildcrafted palm kernel oil is pressed from the kernels of the African oil palm Elaeis guineensis. Palm kernel oil is an edible plant oil that lends a smooth texture to all body butter, soaps, and salves. This fantastic butter is unrefined and has a lovely light brown color. Its unique aroma hints of creamy caramel and nutty decadence. Palm kernel oil is wonderfully emollient and great for skin, hair, lips, and nails.
Benefits and uses
Palm kernel oil works to both soften and lubricate the skin. It has cooling properties and is very healing for dry itchy skin. It can be used to prevent dry hair and lips and is popular for nail and cuticle treatments, as well. We think our palm kernel oil blends beautifully with our red palm oil, but it can be used in many different ways. Be sure to check out our suggested recipes for some inspiration!
Our source for this palm kernel oil follows fair trade and organic guidelines in the production of this butter. This oil is from Togo, West Africa, where there is no risk of harming orangutans, as they are not indigenous to this region. We strive to provide only ethically and responsibly sourced products!
