Palm oil is a fabulous addition to a number of products. Rich in vitamin E and tocotrienol, Palm Oil
fights free radicals in our body to prevent cell damage, eliminate wrinkles and
reduce scars, burns and spots. The significant vitamin A content of this oil can promote skin elasticity, blood circulation and
cell regeneration, while protecting the skin from UV damage.
Palm oil has a well balanced fatty acid composition, in which the level of saturatted fatty acids is almost the same as the amount of unsaturated fatty acids. Palmitic acid makes up 44-45% with oleic acid being 39-40% with linoleic acid being 10-11%. A trace amount of linolenic acid rounds out the profile to produce a very stable oil, not readily prone to oxidation.
Palm Oil is an excellent oil to use as a component for soap manufacture as it creates a hard bar of soap with good conditioning qualities while maintaining a mildness to the finished product.
