Specifically olive oil.

I use a lot of olive oil in my soaps and have been purchasing it at Walmart for approximately 18.8 cents/oz. I'm looking to purchase in larger quantities and checked out Soaper's Choice. I calculated their olive oil pomace to be approximately 13 cents/oz. Good deal until I look at shipping - over $26 to ship to my address. Shipping brings the price up to 17 cents/oz by my calculations, not too far off from what I'm already paying at Walmart.

Am I already getting a good deal? Or do I need to purchase in even larger quantities from somewhere else for the best deals? What is everyone else paying per ounce?

Thanks!

Depending where you live Cibaria Soap Supply has Olive Pomace for $52.54 per 35 lbs. To my zip code SC wants $24.65 and Cibaria would cost $17.46. So you might want to check Cibaria. If in So Calif they also have will call
