Why and how do we use it?
You may have heard about palm oil. It’s highly versatile and efficient, producing more oil per land area than any other equivalent vegetable oil. We use palm oil and its derivatives as a feedstock to help produce a number of ingredients in our products. These ingredients are important raw materials which help to give the product stability and improve its texture so that it feels pleasant on your skin. Given it’s an essential ingredient, we are working hard to secure a supply of only 100% physically certificate sustainable palm oil.
What’s the latest?
Experts have said that the problem isn’t palm oil itself, but the irresponsible sourcing of palm oil which leads to deforestation. Sustainably sourced palm oil is the answer to the problem, and we’ve been driving change in the industry for many years. Our parent company, Unilever, takes environmental responsibilities very seriously. Our ambition is to make sustainable palm oil commonplace, and we’re working with partners to drive lasting change, both within our own supply chain and across the wider palm oil industry.
