Q: What do we mean by sustainably sourced palm oil?
A: This means we use premium RSPO certified palm oil, demonstrating a commitment to the preservation of the orangutan habitat impacted by conventional palm production as well as fair trade and ethical sourcing. RSPO stands for Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil. RSPO was established in 2004 to “promote the production and use of sustainable palm oil for people, the planet and prosperity.” The RSPO has become the globally recognized standard for sustainable palm oil. Sustainable palm oil is defined by the eight principles and criteria against which oil palm plantations are certified. These stringent sustainability criteria relate to social, environmental, and economic good practice.
Q: What kind of ingredients do you use in your soap?
A: We make soap using a method called cold process which enables us to control the ingredients in our soap. This method combines the oils and butters with sodium hydroxide (lye) and goes through a process called saponification. We use natural ingredients like coconut and palm oil (from a sustainable source), olive oil and sweet almond oil. During saponificiation, the ingredients combine and chemically change into soap, glycerin and a small amount of water. After the soap is cut into bars, it cures for 4-6 weeks and then is ready to be packaged.
