Buy Bulk Palm Kernel Flakes 




Palm Kernel Flakes vs Palm Oil; what is Palm Kernel Flakes exactly? Palm Oil is obtained from both the fruit and pulp of the Elaeis guineensis (species of Palm tree in Malaysia and Indonesia); however, Palm Kernel Flakes is the solid form of the oil obtained from the seed (kernel) of the Palm fruit. For this reason it is often called Palm Kernel Oil. Our Palm Kernel Flakes are sourced from the Malaysia and Indonesia, the world’s largest Palm planters!


Palm Kernel Flakes are widely accepted by personal care manufacturers as being mostly useful to soap makers, as it lathers well; however, due to its solidifying potential, Palm Kernel Oil can potentially be used in lip balms, lip stick, and salves as well!

    Amazing prices and great quality

    I have no complaints. The quality is great, and every thing I ordered didnt arrive to me broken or leaking. I also appreciate that they used packing paper instead ofbubble wrap.

    Great Product

    Posted by Karen on 16th Jul 2017

    Love using in my CP soap. Easy to weigh out. Probably not a good idea to order in the summer in Arizona. Even though product came as a liquid ( over 120 degrees that week) I quickly put in refrig. After it firmed up I was able to break it apart in small chunks while still in sealed bag. My soap came out great.
    Next time I will plan ahead and order in Winter.

    Palm Kermel Flakes and other products from Bulk Apothecary

    Posted by BrentSPEED RAB HARTFIELD on 12th Dec 2016

    I first heard of Bulk Apothecary online while looking at products from other major suppliers. I have been making fine soaps for twenty years. This started because I have a child who is allergic to most soap products. Being a small time producer, the products I purchase are usually quite expensive due to the fact that I don't purchase pallets full of supplies. Bulk Apothecary to the rescue! The prices are very reasonable and they are excellent quality! I usually make 500-750 bars of soap around Thanksgiving time of which most go to my children as part of their gifts, part I use and the rest is gifted. Everyone loves my soap products. !My soaps have 11 different ingredients not counting lye, water, and fragrance. But the lather is rich and the soap is mild so the ingredients won't change. Thanks to Bulk Apothecary I can afford those quality ingredients!

    Easier than palm oil

    Posted by maro avakian on 7th Oct 2016

    I use palm kernel flakes in all my CP Soaps. It's more convenient than palm oil. The flakes are easy to measure and melt fast. The soap turns out great.
