Palm oil is produced from the palm fruit and is a highly saturated oil due to its palmitic acid content. Palm oil will solidify at temperatures below 30 degrees centigrade. It is used widely in soap production, as a carrier and a hardening agent, and in a variety of cosmetic products, including hair care and body butters.
