June Apothecary Tip: buy Palm-free products!

Here at Molly Muriel we are extremely proud to announce that all of our products are now palm-free!  What does that mean?  Well, so glad you asked.

Palm oil is used in tons of our everyday products, and because of the demand that creates, precious rainforest in parts of Southeast Asia, Africa, and Central/South America are being demolished to make way for palm plantations.  This devastation has wide reaching consequences, which Greenpeace describes in their must-read article about palm-oil: “not only is this a disaster for biodiversity and local communities, it will also release vast amounts of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, accelerating climate change.”

After learning about the implications of palm oil use, we could not knowingly contribute to that kind of destruction, and so made the decision to remove palm oil from all of the Molly Muriel products.  You can help, too, by educating yourself on the implications of palm oil use and paying attention to the contents of the products you purchase.  And while you’re here, don’t forget to peruse the proudly-palm-free Molly Muriel store!!  This month only, get 8 free assorted soap samples with your $25 online order.  We can help the world one product at a time!
