Why don’t we use palm oil?
Palm oil is used in so many things these days because it’s so versatile and easy to use - it’s in as much as 50% of all packaged supermarket products: soap, body milk, peanut butter, cookies, snacks…….
BUT this industry is also destroying the homes of many animals as it is a leading cause for deforestation in countries like Malaysia and Indonesia - its estimated that 50,000 orangutans have died from it.
We simply choose not to use it at all in our soaps despite the fact that palm oil has good cleaning qualities and cheaper than coconut oil.
