PZ Cussons is a British-owned global retail giant. They own well-known supermarket brands in personal care, cleaning, household goods and toiletries categories, such as Imperial Leather, Morning Fresh, Carex, Radiant laundry powder and more. (See below for full list)

Savvy consumers have been pressuring PZ Cussons to cease using deforestation palm oil. Yet they have failed on this. From their website:

‘We first published our action plan in October 2018 with the aim that by 2020 100% of the palm oil we use would come from producers whose entire operations have been independently verified compliant with No Deforestation/No Peat/No Exploitation (NDPE) standards.’

This phrasing above means absolutely nothing. In 2020, PZ Cusson’s supply chain continued to slash and burn thousands of hectares of forests and release mega-tonnes of carbon into the atmosphere. PZ Cussons is therefore involved in the killing thousands of endangered species. Once these animals are gone – they are gone for good. See research on PZ Cusson’s palm oil sources including Mulia Sawit, Peputra Group and Musirawas three massive polluting and forest destroying mills. Here is a PDF of their palm oil mills.

PZ Cussons makes grand claims of sustainability and they are RSPO members. Yet despite all of this greenwashing, they continue to buy palm oil from 3 mills in Indonesia collectively responsible for 38,000ha of deforestation in 2020. Mulia Sawit, Peputra Group and Musirawas three massive polluting and forest destroying mills. Here is a PDF of their palm oil mills.

Hi, I’m Palm Oil Detective’s Editor in Chief. Palm Oil Detectives is partly a consumer website about palm oil in products and partly an online community for writers, artists and musicians to showcase their work and express their love for endangered species. I have a strong voice for creatures great and small threatened by deforestation. With our collective power we can shift the greed of the retail industry and influence big palm oil to stop cutting down forests. Be bold! Be courageous! Join me and stand up for the animals with your art and your supermarket choices
