Pure vegetable glycerine, made from certified sustainably sourced palm and palm kernel oil.


Did you know? We do actively try to avoid products that are produced from palm oil sources but sometimes it just isn't possible. Therefore at a minimum, any products containing palm oil must be from certified sustainably sourced palm oil. Sustainably sourced palm oil may still be a better option than other alternatives, which although won't carry the stigma that palm oil does, can still be farmed and produced unsustainably - in some cases in an even less sustainable manner than palm oil itself. The problem isn't palm oil, it is the way in which unethical producers farm it. The way we see it, supporting certified sustainably sourced farmers will help change the way this product is farmed, leading to better environmental policies, while still supporting the communities that depend on palm farming.
