Palm oil certified

By the RSPO

What is
palm oil?

Palm oil is an extremely versatile and efficient oil, with health benefits including vitamin E. The world’s most used oil, it’s found in many everyday food, household and cosmetic items. The vegetable oil is derived from the fruit of the oil palm tree, either by squeezing the fleshy fruit or crushing kernels and stones. The majority (85%) of the worlds plantations are found in Indonesia & Malaysia. 

 

Why is it so
controversial?

A highly debated subject with much media attention in recent years, palm oil production has been linked to deforestation – destroying biodiverse habitats (of endangered species such as Orangutans, pygmy elephants and Sumatran rhinos and tigers), exploitation of native communities, and ultimately climate change.

Why not
boycott Palm oil?

Simply boycotting palm is not the answer, as switching to alternatives would mean a far greater impact on the environment (requiring up to 10 x more land for crops such as soy). This would also have a negative impact on the emerging economies and smallholder farmers, who depend on palm oil for their livelihood.

What is RSPO (segregated)?

The Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil, formed in 2004 certifies palm oil production by setting best practice and sourcing standards. The palm oil used in Ministry of Soap is segregated, which means it is fully traceable from only two locations in the Solomon Islands and Papa New Guinea. Our supplier works with small-holders providing them with support to improve their yield using sustainable methods. They also provide employment, housing, education and medical facilities for local communities via the NBPOL foundation. The plantations that our palm oil is produced in, pose no risk to endangered species such as orangutans, tigers and elephants.
