    Palm oil is tainted by environmental destruction and poor working conditions but global production is soaring. What does the industry look like behind the scenes?

    Shionagh Goold‘s insight:

    Biome is committed to not selling any products containing palm oil or its derivatives because of the associated habitat destruction and threat to endangered species.  Some products in the Inika and Sante ranges do contain palm oil (read more below about this reason).  We do not take on any new product lines that contain palm oil.  We do not believe “sustainable palm oil” is a trustworthy alternative, but will continue to monitor the situation on Certified Sustainable Palm Oil (CSPO).
