Popular cooking oil I buy it at a local African market. Soapers Choice used to carry it, but it didn't show up when I checked there. If you do a search, Walmart online offers it, which is kinda cool. The price looks right too. I'd rather do that than make the 45-minute round trip to the African market!Now I need to find red palm oil....
Oh, perfect! Thank you! I'll probably try our local global foods market first. Of anyone locally would have it, they probably would.Popular cooking oil I buy it at a local African market.

Sounds like zomi. I also noticed that it's not perfectly clear after melting up, and that it considerably accelerates trace compared to RBD palm oil. It has a more intense aroma, less fruity but more savoury. Soap with a lot of zomi tends to become brownish, rather than bright lobster/rowanberry-red from “non-zomi”/“regular”/filtrated (??? idk if it has a special name in Nigeria/Ghana) red palm oil.FYI: The unrefined red palm I buy has black sediment in it that needs to be strained out before soaping... or not ... I think it's just charcoal from processing it over an open fire, or whatever. ???
Smells like pumpkin after cutting them open to make jack 'o lanterns!Red palm is gorgeous! My skin loves the soft feel after washing off, my nose loves the smell, my palate loves the taste (when cooking with the oil itself, not the soap, of course!) … just the yellow lather (staining) can be annoying at times.
Not Ford, but you can find the answer in Post #1...
Awwww Thank Ü...Good job, there! Great color and photo. Red palm oil soap always reminds me of retro Dial. I use a MAXIMUM of 5% and get the same color as @Ford . A lil' bit goes a loooong way. When I use red palm, I do not use any other colorant.
And, @Peachy Clean Soap , great to see you again. I'm lovin' your new look, too!
I haven't tried it yet... first must order the oil which I keep forgetting to do!
