All Our Products Are Palm Oil FREE! And This Is Why...
Here at Natural Living we believe that you can create cosmetic products without the need of any ingredient that isn't natural, vegan friendly and most of all isn't causing masses amount of damage to our habitat.
This is one of the main reasons why we do not use palm oil in any of our products. We never have and we never will!
We are becoming more aware of the damage of mass producing palm oil can do but here are some of the reasons that you might not know about:
Greenhouse gas emissions. Deforestation in tropical areas accounts for an estimated 10 percent of manmade CO
2 emissions, and is a driver toward dangerous climate change.
- Habitat destruction, leading to the demise of critically endangered species (e.g. the Sumatran elephant, Sumatran tiger, the Sumatran rhinoceros, and the Sumatran orangutan).
- Reduced biodiversity, including damage to biodiversity hotspots.
- Cultivating crops on land that belongs to indigenous people in the Sarawak and Kalimantan states on the island of Borneo and the Malaysian state of Sabah.
