Esterified oil, palm oil, same fight!
In natural cosmetics, esterified oils are used at the expense of vegetable oils for their lower cost and drier feel. This substitution not only deprives your skin of the beneficial properties of the latter, but also has very harmful effects on the environment. Indeed, the vegetable oil most used to make esterified oils is palm oil, responsible for massive deforestation of the primary forests of Southeast Asia. Does it make sense for cosmetics that claim to be natural to degrade biodiversity? Of course it doesn’t.
Finally, make no mistake: are neither better for your skin, nor for your health!
At oOlution, it’s very, very simple, our maximum limit for the use of esterified oils is… 0%!
We use ONLY genuine vegetable oils(especially in our vegetable oil compositions), exclusively obtained by first cold pressing. They all come from Organic Agriculture or Sustainable Forest Harvesting for a superior quality… the only one worthy of your skin! 🙂
