Palm oil-free matters
Palm oil is a dream come true for a soap maker. It is inexpensive, easy to work with during the soap making process and creates a bar of soap that is hard and long lasting.
However, the production of palm oil has a very negative impact on the environment, people and animals.
Most of the palm oil products are coming from monoculture plantations in Indonesia and Malaysia, most of which were created from illegal "slash and burn" tactics. This has caused certain animal species to become endangered in that area and driven indigenous cultures out of their homes.
Egeau soaps have been developed without palm oil or palm oil products to minimize social and environmental impact.
