Here are some palm oil free makeup, cosmetics and perfume brands that do not use rainforest-destroying palm oil. If you are ever in doubt look for the prefixes: LAUR, STEAR, GYLC and PALM in the ingredients list on packaging – this is most likely palm oil. Another tip is to shop for locally produced products instead of mass-produced cosmetics, beauty and makeup brands, or if you are in the UK – shop at Iceland.

Did you know that palm oil is one of the world’s most destructive crops, as it can only be harvested in tropical rainforest and peatland landscapes where the highest concentration of endangered species live? The majority of palm oil and soy is fed to farm animals that people eat. This is why palm oil is an animal rights issue. And it is for these reasons that palm oil is NOT considered vegan by animal activists. It may be a plant-based substance, but it is NOT VEGAN. Beauty brands like Avon, Unilever, L’Oreal, Procter & Gamble, PZ Cussons, Johnson & Johnson claiming that their products are plant-based AKA vegan but yet still using palm oil are simply greenwashing extinction and ecocide!
