Palm oil is great – it’s cheap, it’s natural, renewable, and it’s found in huge amounts of food and cosmetic Products – it makes great cookies, a hard bar of soap and a long burning plant based candle, however, our problem is with the way in which most palm oil is grown and harvested. This causes us and many others great concern. Deforestation and pollution are among some of the reasons why we don’t use it!
“it is, unfortunately, no longer possible for producers or users of palm oil to ensure that they are acting responsibly simply by producing or using Certified Sustainable Palm Oil (CSPO).” Source.
