I don't know what you need this for, but a general guideline I followed when I was a cold-process soap manufacturer was that if an ingredient was hard to source, I used an alternative because of the potential scarcity or premium pricing in the future. If it's this hard now, wait until your customers LOVE your product with ORBO in it and you have to source it at any cost or disappoint your customers. (Go ahead... ask me how I know!)
Regardless, the best resource I have for information is Barbara Hardy at Natural Oils (http://naturaloils.com). She is a wealth of knowledge based on many years in the oil industry. She's also a soap maker, so she knows handmade beauty. You may want to ask her for a source. Tell her Charlon Bobo sent you, although she's professional and friendly to every customer. (I don't get a kickback, but it is helpful for them to know how you found them.)
