Coconut oil is not Palm oil

Coconut oil and Palm oil have the different color, a different smell and taste, different melting point.

  • Melting point coconut oil: +24-26 C
  • Palm oil orange-red. Melting point palm oil: +42-45 C

Coconut oil and palm oil have different cost because of a difference in volumes and production process.

Coconut KLF Nirmal oil - it is elite one. It is not widespread widely since coconut palm trees are cultivated on small territory. Production process of qualitative coconut oil is rather difficult, therefore 100 % coconut oil is expensive.
