The reason I will not use or endorse Palm oil
Due to the incredible amount of damage to the environment and animal habitat that is caused by the harvesting of palm oil and palm oil plantations many soap makers including myself have decided not to use palm oil in any of our products. The devastation of habitat is killing many species of wildlife. Some soap makers are still using what they call sustainably harvested palm oil. However even sustainable palm oil contains up to 30% palm oil that is not harvested in a sustainable and non damaging manner.
