Palm Kernel Oil
*Due to our concerns that the production of Palm Oil by some manufacturers is causing damage to the environment and those that live among it, we at Voyageur are committed to only carry Palm Oil that is only from a Certified Sustainable source, which must meet strict standards to ensure it is being produced in a way that is healthy to the environment.
Palm kernel oil is produced through pressing and refining to remove some of the scent and colour.
Our palm kernel is a very hard oil with a melt point of around 100 degrees F, a similar hardness to cocoa butter. You will need to break this oil up into pieces from its solid form. We usually use a hammer and screwdriver, which works effectively to break it into pieces.
