The demand for palm oil is ever growing and along with it the pillaging of rainforests and orangutan habitats. Be aware of products that contain palm oil and weigh the pleasure they bring you against the destruction they cause.

LIPSTICK - Palm oil is used in lipstick as it holds color well, doesn’t melt at high temperatures, and has a smooth application and virtually no taste.

PIZZA DOUGH - Palm oil is added to both frozen and fresh pizza dough to stop it from sticking together and to enhance texture.

SHAMPOO - Palm oil is used as a conditioning agent that helps restore the natural oils of the hair that are stripped away by most shampoos.
Palm oil makes ice cream smooth and creamy.
