Palm Oil / Palm Ash Sustainability

Kira Maritano Oct 28, 2015 04:27PM EDT

First off- I LOVE your African Black Soap! It is by far my favorite soap I've ever used. Because I love it so much, and buy it so often, I am very interested to know where you source the palm ingredients that give it it's wonderful qualities.

As I'm sure you know, the production of palm oil is decimating rainforests throughout the world- specifically in Southeast Asia. Unscrupulous agriculture companies are destroying rainforests to plant monoculture oil palm plantations, to create palm oil- a major ingredient in Nubian Heritage products (like my favorite soap). If sourced from such plantations, which exist only due to the thoughtless destruction of critical habitat, palm oil is DIRECTLY linked to climate change and loss of biodiversity (extinction!).

So, where does Nubian Heritage get its palm oil and palm ash?

Thank you for taking the time to answer this important question.

Thank you for connecting with Nubian Heritage Kira.

We are absolutely thrilled to hear you are loving our African Black Soap. The palm oil used in our soaps are sourced from a member of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil – trade group committed to sustainability in the supply chain of palm oil. No Orangutans or Orangutan habitats are harmed by our use of palm oil. Palm oil is also produced in West Africa where there are no Orangutan habitats. We thank you for taking the time to write us and we hope this helps.

Have a great day!
