Along with palm oil (below) and olive oil (available to you locally), coconut oil is one of the three basic oils necessary to make high-quality cold-process soap. Coconut oil is considered to enhance the lather of soap (although it's recommended that coconut not account for more than 30% of the total fats/oils in your recipe).
Important Ordering Note: The 25lb. container comes in its own box and will ship separately (but at the same time). Accordingly, please place a separate order for any and all 25lb. containers; if you do not and your order contains other merchandise, the cart will give you an incorrect total for shipping. In that event, we will recalculate your shipping by hand and will contact you to charge the true amount (which will be higher than the figure shown by the cart). Three or more 8lb. units may incur additional shipping charges as well.
