Palm oil has become the leading plant oil used worldwide. Rainforests are being cleared and replanted with palm oil plantations to accommodate the explosive demand for this cheap and versatile oil.
Large scale palm oil production costs our ecosystem a staggering loss of biodiversity. Additionally, strong dependence to any single crop brings weakness to the food chain by decreased resistance to pests and pathogens.
Simplici Soap Factory uses premium oils, instead of palm oil, because we believe that biodiversity is the cornerstone of sustainability.
