Palm-oil free products

Palm oil is a hot topic right now, and for good reason: the palm industry in South East Asia is causing the destruction of Orangutans and their environmental eco-systems, and it is completely unnecessary.

To make our customers aware of the palm oil content in any products stocked at Natural Supply Co, we've put together this list of information provided to us by suppliers.

We will endeavour to keep this list updated as new brands are added. If you ever have a question about any of this, please feel free to email us (info@naturalsupplyco.com) and we will find out anything we can!

Clemence Organics: a couple of ingredients used in our cream-based products can from time to time be derived from palm oil. In particular, Glyceryl caprylate, Glycerl undecylenate and Cetearyl Alcohol. These ingredients can be found in our Refining Cleanser, 2 in 1: Face Scrub + Mask, Ultimate Face Cream and Ultimate Hand + Body Lotion. I am making sure any future formulations do not contain any palm oil derivatives.

COCOOIL: does not contain any palm oil or derivatives of palm oil.

Comme. Co: does not contain any palm oil or derivatives of palm oil.

DnA Elements: "we believe all our products are palm oil free, however occasionally I believe glyceryl stearate and sodium stearate may be a derivative (and this is contained in our moisturiser and nappy rash balm). Although we have requested that all our raw ingredients are free of palm oil and its derivatives." 

Dr Bronner's: Organic palm oil is a primary ingredient in Dr Bronner’s Castile Bar Soaps. Palm oil gives the bar its hardness and balances the lathering power of coconut oil, while keeping the soap from softening and dissolving too fast.

Dr Bronner's palm oil is produced ethically from sustainably-harvested palm fruits in Ghana’s Eastern Region. The project is owned and coordinated by Serendipalm, Dr Bronner’s sister company in Ghana. They buy palm fruits exclusively from 500 small organic family farms. These farms were developed without the widespread clear-cutting of rainforest and resulting devastation to local primates that are common nowadays with many of the newer, larger-scale palm oil plantations. Dr Bronner's pay the farmers fair prices for their palm fruits and support them with mulch and organic agriculture training, thus helping them to improve soil fertility and profitability. The 250+ workers in the oil mill, primarily local women, enjoy working conditions and compensation uncommon in this industry – and in an area that has few reliable jobs to offer to its growing rural population.

Serendipalm now supplies Fair Trade and organic palm oil to Dr Bronner’s, as well as three renowned European Fair Trade companies. For each shipment of palm oil, Serendipalm receives a Fair Trade premium. The premium has been used for a range of community development projects, such as drilling wells and installing tanks to provide community-operated water systems, building public toilet facilities, rebuilding a pedestrian bridge, installing lighting, and providing school supplies to the staff members’ children. These projects are selected by a committee with broad-based representation and offer great opportunities for targeted community development projects for which there are otherwise no funds available.

Dr Bronner's believe that the technical characteristics of palm oil give it an important place in organic foods and personal care products. With global demand for palm oil surging, and the realization that large-scale palm oil plantations are often neither “green” nor “fair,” their project is expanding to supply growing demand. It demonstrates that small-scale production of such commodities can indeed be fair, profitable and sustainable.

Hunter Lab: "only the Exfoliating Hand and Body Bar is made from a base of sustainably sourced Sodium Palmate and Sodium Palm Kernalate. The supplier is certified by the WWF, using only pre-existing and non-deforested plantations.

The reason we chose Palm Oil is of course for the incredible benefits it has for our skin, including incredibly high levels of vitamins A & E, and because it helps restore the natural oils which can be removed from high-er pH soap, but more than that it is the perfect natural soap base because it allows us to create an incredibly effective soap where the Glycerin is not removed. 

We are all about sustainably and ethically sourced ingredients, and took the decision to use Palm Oil in our Body Bar very seriously. In the end we were 100% satisfied the supplier was not contributing to African/Brazilian deforestation, nor having any negative effect on their region or their community."

    Please quit hiding behind the RSPO label. Reports have come out showing there is little to no validity to the RSPO. Many companies who say they are RSPO use little to no sustainable palm oil. And, sustainable palm oil is not much better than non-sustainable. I do appreciate your transparency on all your ingredients, though.
