We encourage you to choose palm oil free products or choose products that source sustainable palm oil.Certified sustainable palm oil is sourced from the cultivation of palm trees without the destruction of native forests.It is vital in the fight to save some of our most precious ecosystems and to stop the widespread destruction of native forests in subtropical Malaysia, Indonesia, Africa and South America.The Sumatran Orang-utan is predicted to be extinct in the wild within the next 10 years. Other animals such as the Sumatran Tiger, the Asian Elephant, and Asian Rhinoceros are also at risk.
Most products that we use every day contain palm oil.Palm oil is used in many baked goods, snacks, chocolate, margarine, soap, shampoo, conditioner, moisturizers, lipstick, domestic and industrial detergents, and it is being considered as a biofuel.In soaps it is often labeled ‘sodium palmate’ or ‘sodium palm kernelate’, indicating palm or palm kernel oil. It is hidden in toiletries under a variety of names since palm oil is used to manufacture many ingredients – including almost every emulsifier you would find in skin care products.
At our online store with every product, we note to you if they are palm oil free.
