Jedwards International is a wholesale supplier of bulk Coconut Oil that has been refined, bleached, and deodorized. Coconut oils are known for many uses in the food and cosmetic industries. Our refined bulk Coconut Oil is extracted from the meat of the Coconut. Refining removes the Coconut taste and smell leaving it as a clean bland product with a clear to light yellow color when liquid and white to off-white color when solid. Due to its high content of saturated fatty acids, primarily Lauric Acid (C12:0), the oil is solid at room temperature and highly resistant to rancidity. It is often referred to as 76 degree Coconut Oil due to its melt point.
Coconut Oil-RBD is used in various applications in the cosmetic and soaping industry including bringing stiffness to finished products. Among other benefits, it is believed to promote skin elasticity, anti-aging, and is known to be an effective moisturizer and softener for the skin. Adding lather to soap is another one of its many key attributes. The elimination of the Coconut odor and taste allows for RBD Coconut Oil to be used in formulations without overwhelming other fragrances and taste within the application.
Food applications for RBD Coconut Oil are numerous including frying, commercial baking, and shortening production. Its saturated fatty acid content makes the oil highly stable and resistant to heat. As a bland product it allows for cooking without obtaining a Coconut taste in the finished product.
