Environmental issues are always at the forefront of Botani’s product development. Our ingredients are sourced from environmentally sustainable and ethical sources. Concern about Palm oil plantations in Indonesia is warranted and we are very pleased that you feel deeply about this. We are also horrified by this. When we learnt about the deforestation of the home of orangutans and the treatment of these precious animals we were as appalled as you are.
Some suppliers of Palm Oil are following unsustainable practices, but this does not mean that all are. While our two body bars do contain Palm Oil, we only used RSPO certified Palm Oil – which is a fair trade, eco-friendly plantation in Columbia, South America. These communities’ livelihood are supported from this fair trade industry.
