Palm oil is a vegetable oil that is found in many soap and skincare products. It is well-suited to bath and body product formulations but, more appealingly to large corporations, it is very inexpensive. The high demand for palm oil has led to serious deforestation in rainforests but especially those in Indonesia. When portions of rainforest are cleared to make way for palm oil plantations local people often lose their homes and already endangered species are put at even greater risk. We believe that there is no way to know if palm oil has been sustainably sourced and have instead decided to avoid it altogether. Through significant research we have formulated a blend of other vegetable oils that mimics the properties of palm oil and produces a hard and lathering bar of soap so that you and your conscience can be clean.
