Palm oil is an edible oil derived from the fruit of oil palms, mainly the African oil palm (elaeis guineensis). The ‘oil’ is normally a solid at room temperature, and is very smooth to the touch. It forms the basis of Sunlight and Palmolive soaps. It makes an excellent base for various products such as skin balm, lipsticks and Zit-Stik.
The palm oil used in Necessity Natural Skin Care products comes from Colombia, and its production does not damage the habitats of endangered species such as orangutans.
