Palm Oil

A high-quality oil sourced from palm trees that can be used in many beauty and skin care products. Our customers often use palm oil to make luxurious soaps as the oil produces a harder, longer lasting bar. It is a great way to cut costs while still producing quality, high-lather, nourishing soap!

    I opened the 7 #-no issues

    Posted by Nickie on 2nd Jan 2019

    I see that many people have a hard time with the 7# bucket so I was hesitant to purchase. I also have a 7# bucket of their mango butter and it’s the same container. I used pruning shears to cut the marks on the outer rim then a flat head screw driver to pry open around the edges. Had it opened in 5 minutes. I am enjoying this oil so far!

    Wonderful Product! Not difficult to open

    Posted by PJ on 26th Dec 2018

    I have bought the 7.5 lb pail a few times. It is a terrific product. Like all shipping buckets, you have to know how to efficiently open it so you can store the product without removal. First, I like to use tinsnips to cut through each slit that is evenly spaced under the rim of the bucket. After all of the slits are cut through, it is easy to pull up one side of the lid and work your way around until it pops free. It can be pressed back into place to seal for storage. Great tubs to reuse for mixing, too!

    Very happy

    I purchased the 7lb bucket, had no issues with the lid. First time opening it is the hardest, just make sure the tabs on the lid snap out and it’ll come right off. It’s just like a paint bucket. Beautiful oil, made very nice soap!

    I bought the 35 gallon drum for a pretty decent price. I wish Bulk Apothecary listed whether it was sustainably harvested from the rainforest or not. It makes me hesitant to purchase again. The palm oil works great in my soaps though, makes the bar much harder to last longer.

    Revise the bucket

    Posted by Rhonda Maner on 26th May 2018

    I like this Palm oil but the bucket container for the 7 lb order is ridiculously difficult to open and once you do open it if you can, you can't use the top anymore. You must remove all 7 lbs of the Palm oil and put into other containers. 7lb container revision is in desperate need. I would rather have multiple bottles...No impossible to open bucket please. Thank you.

    Love the product

    Posted by Rhonda on 7th Apr 2018

    I love this product, I hate the packaging in the 7 lb bucket. The lid is almost impossible to remove and then replace for storing. Very irritating. It would be better to just ship several bottles than to have this can that is truly unmanageable. Please consider a better alternative for your customers. Thank you.
