Palm Oil Free
In the past we have used RSPO certified sustainable palm oil in our soaps, but in early 2018 we finally made the call to completely eliminate palm oil from all our products. We are now completely palm free.
More than 50% of supermarket items will contain Palm Oil. The deforestation of tropical rainforests in Malaysia and Indonesia is driven by the Palm oil industry, and as it grows, it is tearing down of the very ‘lungs of the planet’ and devastating the environments of the Orangutan and other animals. We’re a small company and our palm oil usage was small, but we believe if we all work together we can collectively make a difference.
Stu created a new base recipe for our soaps using Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, Cocoa Butter and Shea Butter. The new recipe is more expensive to produce, it’s a higher quality, slightly harder and more luxurious bar to use. And it comes with peace of mind.
We are becoming plastic free. Our only product using plastic at the moment is our bath salts, the plastic bottle will soon be replaced with an attractive windowed paper container. We are always on the lookout for more environmentally friendly products to stock, check out our entirely biodegradable toothbrushes, and have a look in our accessories page for useful items made from wood and stone. We can do better, and we will. Accessories
