Here are some palm oil free skincare and beauty products that do not contain 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 skincare or beauty 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. Mass-produced skincare brands like Palmolive, Avon, L’Oreal, Unilever like to claim that their skincare and beauty products are plant-based AKA vegan. However, if they are still using palm oil, they are simply greenwashing extinction and ecocide!
