    Default Where to buy babassu oil? (Oil brand recommendations)

    I would like to buy some babassu oil, buuuuuuut I have no idea where to buy it and what brand is good?

    Alternatively, what are your favourite brands for oil? What would you recommend?

    I'm not sure where to buy babassu.

    I've tried quite a few oils and my favorites right now are..

    Trader Joe's Argan Oil

    Just Hemp Foods Hemp seed oil
    Note: this oil is noticeably green when you use it so I assume it would be a very very bad idea for people with light toned hair.

    Trader Joe's Virgin Coconut oil

    I have Anita Grant's Babassu oil and it's great.

    But I bought it from a Swedish webshop jordklok.se so that's probably not useful for you. But maybe for someone else.

    I bought mine from thesoapkitchen.co.uk, so not useful to you either, sorry! I can't vouch for the quality because I have nothing to compare it to, but my hair loves the stuff and it has a lower melting point than coconut oil so is easier to use

    I think (if I'm not mistaken) that OP is from The Netherlands, so ordering from the UK should be doable (pre-Brexit LOL).

    Oh cool. Well, while the low value consignment relief is in place in the EU it doesn't *have* to be a problem Though thinking about it, I recall their postage being blooming expensive and I had to do a large order to make it worth it, so maybe not the most highly recommended source

    EDIT: Akomaskincare has it slightly cheaper, cheaper delivery within the UK, therefore perhaps cheaper international delivery too.
