We do use Palm Oil in some of our products. Palm oil is a fantastic natural ingredient added for its moisturising and skin protecting properties and keeps skin soft and supple. It is also naturally high in a group of powerful antioxidants which are around 50 times stronger than Vitamin E.

These antioxidants are extremely effective to use in sun lotions and moisturisers as they fight free radicals that damage the skin and cause wrinkles.

The palm oil used in Green People products is from certified organic sources in either the Philippines or Ecuador – neither of which have ever had Orang-utans living there. It comes from trees that are grown on long-established plantations which are managed in a sustainable way to ensure that native fauna and flora are preserved. 

It is a condition of achieving organic certification that the growth and production of crops does not have an adverse effect on the environment either on a local or global scale, and agricultural schemes that involve deforestation are specifically excluded from all organic certification schemes.
