Vegetable oils and butters for soapmaking
and cosmetic applications
Apricot kernel oil, cold pressed
Light and easily absorbed by the skin, apricot kernel oil is rich in minerals and vitamins and has healing qualities for dry, inflamed, sensitive skins.
Avocado oil - organic, cold pressed
Our 100% Australian Avocado oil is fully certified organic and sells mostly in Europe for cosmetics and aromatherapy uses. Avocado oil is rich in antioxidants and, if kept in suitable conditions/location, has a very long shelf life.
Castor oil, pharmaceutical grade
Castor oil is used in cosmetic applications for its ability to "draw" impurities and clear the skin. In soapmaking, it's highly appreciated for the rich, fluffy, luxurious lather it imparts to handmade soaps.
Cocoa butter chunks
Our cocoa butter is unrefined and deodorised, and maintains a light, pleasant chocolate smell. Supplied in easy to handle "blocklets" weighing 10 to 20g each.
Golden Jojoba - cold pressed, unrefined
Australian golden jojoba, produced by Australian growers. Cold pressed and filtered with no additives. A golden yellow colour. Technically not an oil, but a wax and similar to the skin's own sebum, it has superior moisturising properties. Jojoba is a very stable oil, with very long shelf life.
Macadamia oil - cold pressed
We stock the best quality pure Macadamia oil, unrefined, Kosher/Halal/Pareve certified. With a very long shelf life, this macadamia oil is wonderful for cooking and soaping, and for any cosmetic/aromatherapy preparations.
Mango butter, cosmetic grade
Extracted from the mango kernels, mango butter is rich and nourishing. Best used in skin butters and balms for "critical" skin areas.
Olive oil, pure
Olive oil is our favourite soapmaking oil. We stock pure olive oil from Italy, in 5lt tins. Repacked sizes are available on request.
Rice bran oil, cold pressed
Naturally rich in antioxidants, rice bran oil is particularly suitable for dry, sensitive, mature skins and for natural hair care applications.
Shea nut butter, unrefined
Organically grown and imported directly from a women's co-op in Ghana, this Fair Trade shea butter is probably the best and most natural in the world.
Sweet almond oil, cold pressed
A wonderful multi purpose oil, cold pressed to retain all its "live" properties.
Virgin coconut oil, cold pressed
Organically grown, from Fair Trade markets in the South Pacific. A wonderful oil with an "eat me" scent, which greatly enhances the appeal of lip balms, creams, lotions, hair conditioners and body butters.
