Does The Body Shop® use sustainable palm oil?
Palm oil as a direct ingredient has limited use in our products, mainly soap. We source 100% sustainable palm oil from RSPO certified suppliers. By the end of 2011, we sourced 100% of our palm oil and 100% of our wood from certified sustainable sources. We believe it is better to support 100% sustainable palm oil rather than boycott it altogether. We want to support and promote farmers that choose to grow palm for its oil in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way.
For more information on the RSPO, please see their consumer guide, which includes The Body Shop® soaps.
