What’s the problem with palm oil. Shocked with photos of devastated forests and slaughtered orangutans, the image we have of palm oil has, deservedly, taken a hit. Despite its known consequences, palm oil remains the most consumed fat in the world, present in half of all supermarket products.
Is it possible to create everything all at once, tailored skincare products inspired by ecosystems, really nice to use, without chemical ingredients and palm oil? Or am I dreaming? Am I turning my dreams into reality? It took me a long time to build up enough courage to dare launch into this crazy adventure.
If you have seen the animated film Ratatouille you will know that Rémy, the rat, shows the kitchen porter how to make a ratatouille.

Advanced medical technology allows doctors to effortlessly explore the intricate workings of the body with tools such as 3-D body images, brain function scans, and genomic testing. Even so, the yoni remains shrouded with little medical study. This information-limitation fortifies the blushful whispers and silences that envelop the mystery and the mission of Yoniland.
