Babassu oil, great alternative to palm oil #palmfree

Updated: Dec 11, 2020



Palm oil production has resulted in huge deforestation which is having catastrophic effects on these gorillas, not to mention the devastating effects on climate change and global warming. I know that there are places that sell sustainable palm oil but I wanted to steer clear altogether from it.This is why my cold process soaps are palm free

For more alternatives to palm oil go to www.soapqueen.com she has a whole page devoted to palm oil substitutes, personally I love babassu oil and am sticking with it but it's not cheap so if you want something more cost effective than soap queen TV is the place to go- plus it's an amazing resource for all things soapy.

Benefits for your skin from babassu oil:

Rich in antioxidants, fatty acids and vitamin E

Anti-inflammatory

Antibacterial and antifungal


Below is the babassu tree, she may not be pretty but the oil from her nuts is incredible, it's a fantastic moisturizer on its own and a little goes a long way. There is very little wastage from the babassu nut the shell is used as a smokeless charcoal and the flesh a type of flour.


So next time you are thinking of creating a skincare product and are shopping for oils please give babassu oil a try and I'm sure you will fall in love with it too
