Why does boutique vegan sell products with palm oil?
We make every effort to offer products without palm oil.
We sell exclusively vegan products, and some of them have partial palm oil contents.
Nevertheless, whenever possible we try to replace these products in the long term.
If products contain palm oil, we do our best to make sure it is from sustainable palm (kernel) oil cultivation.
Our goal is to slowly discontinue products which contain palm oil; we do not want to support deforestation nor the destruction of rain forests.
If you are looking for products without palm oil, you can use the without palm oil filters
This filter helps you find palm oil-free products, that is, products that do not contain ingredients or derivatives from palm oil.
Although our producers take care to relate certified palm oil from sustainable sources, we try as much as possible to avoid listing products with palm oil.
Through awareness campaigns, both producers and consumers are becoming increasingly sensitive and attentive to the palm oil issue, and therefore you can easily exclude products with palm oil from your cart.
