Why no palm oil?
There is nothing actually wrong with Palm Oil itself, in fact Palm Oil is an excellent source of vegetable oil. It is the method by which it is farmed and grown also where it is planted that causes the problems. For instance, vast swathes of precious rainforests in Indonesia and Malaysia are being lost on a daily basis, as much as the size of 300 football pitches an HOUR are being cleared to make way for the Palm Oil plantations. It’s not just the wildlife that are suffering, it is also the indigenous people and their heritage that is being lost, their home is made up of over 20,000 flowering plant species, 300,000 animal species and don’t forget about the trees.
Given the current rate of clearing, within 12 years the Rainforest as we know them, could be all but a distant memory.
The demand for Palm Oil is also responsible for river pollution, land erosion and air pollution. In fact, it has been found that Palm Oil production is the second largest contributor to Greenhouse gases.
Although we at Palm Free Irish Soap won’t be able to change the world’s opinion and habits, we are doing our bit by finding a suitable alternative, Palm Oil is not a necessity, it is widely used because it is very cheap to produce. Even the use of Palm Oil from so called Sustainable sources is questionable. That’s why we don’t use ANY Palm Oil or Hidden Derivatives in our soaps and are proud to call ourselves “Rainforest Friendly”, you can read more at these links:
