Palm Free Soaps.....

Palm Oil is found in many products on our supermarket shelves...from cakes, biscuits, cosmetics, soaps, detergents, etc.
To obtain this 'in demand' oil, huge areas of rainforest are cut down and burned. The single, greatest threat to the survival of wild Orangutans is the clearing of entire forests to make way for plantations. Orangutan habitats are disappearing at an alarming rate resulting in 5,000 Orangutans dying each year...within 10 years wild Orangutans will be extinct!
This is my reason for not using any Palm oil in any of my products. To help this cause Mad About Nature has adopted an Orangutan from BOS (Borneo Orangutan Survival) who are committing to saving these fantastic creatures. I am donating monthly to the cause to help pay for the centre, staff, food & medicines.

Be aware of what you are buying...check labels and ask producers if they use Palm oil!
