When I first starting making soaps, I had never heard about the horrible things that were happening in the name of Palm Oil. It is horrific and despicable...for the love of money. As a result, I am making all my soaps Palm -Free now and will not use it again. I have decided to use the palm oil that I have left in some of the recipes, as I think it is wrong to waste it, but, as you will see by my new collection "Palm free Artisan Soaps", I am now using other oils in its place such as Cocoa Butter, Avocado Oil, more Shea Butter, Hemp Seed Butter, etc. Yes, Palm Oil was very cost-effective and it enables a soap-maker to keep costs down a bit, but I believe that if someone actually cares about what they put on their skin and want to make sure that there are Vegan, have no preservatives, foaming agents, SLS or parabens, etc. then those are the people I want to make soaps for because THEY care about the animals and the environment.
I hope you like my new line of palm free soaps, but don't forget that my Organic Soaps have always been palm free already! :)
