    I have been getting it from walmart . I check with the bakery supply house that I am now getting my lard and sunflower from and they can get coconut oil but it is in liquid form. Will it still work the same in my recipe ? Why is it liquid ? And they said it said something about "red" they are trying to figure that out also.

    It must be fractionated coconut oil, or they have keep it in a warm room
    Coconut oil that is the 76 degree turns to liquid in 76 degrees or warmer..
    You can soap with fractionated coconut oil, but it has different sap value than the solids .. I have never made a soap with just fractionated coconut and other liquid soaps.. You could give it a try...
