Palm fruit oil has come under a lot of scrutiny over the last few years. Deforestation issues and destroying of animal habitat has been brought to light and it is our job as consumers to maintain the highest integrity in the products we sell and use. We here at Shay and Company only provide for you a Mass Balance palm oil. Mass Balance (MB) means that our palm oil is made of both RSPO and palm oil that cannot be verified if it is RSPO or conventional. The specific harvesting company we work with for our palm has a documented Environmental Policy and a Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability contract, ensuring the highest quality sources for all their ingredients, including our palm oil.
Palm kernel flakes are all the hydrating benefits of palm oil but in a much more temperature stable form. These are ideal for use in candles, soap bars, lotions, heavy creams, and liquid soaps. You can replace your palm oil with palm kernel flakes as they are easy to handle. Use up to 15% in your soap formulas.
Palm oil is an excellent emollient and blending oil for cosmetics and personal care products and is an ideal oil for use in cooking and baking. Palm oil can be used in soaps and lotions alike and will impart a smooth skin feel and excellent hydration on the skin.
Palm kernel flakes are sold in 1-pound, 5-pound and 50-pound boxes only.
