But What About Palm Oil?
There is a lot of controversy surrounding the use of Palm Oil in consumer products. The demand for this substance has created an unfortunate environmental disaster in many areas of the world. Deforestation and wildlife devastation have caused many people to avoid products containing palm oil altogether.
But what if there was a better option? What if there was a way to still utilize Palm Oil, but do it in such a way that doesn't cause the environmental catastrophe mentioned above? Our bar soaps DO contain Palm Oil- it is part of why our soap is so amazing, as it adds stability and durability to each bar. The palm oil that we use comes through a company in Wisconsin called Ciranda, who is certified in both Fair Trade and EcoSocial. Ciranda works directly with AgroPalma, a Brazilian firm that Greenpeace has called "the blueprint for the rest of the palm oil industry".
So next time you pick up a bar of Power Clean Soap, rest assured that the palm oil inside is coming from suppliers that are working to reform the palm oil industry by modeling sustainable practices.
