Palm oil or Palm kernel oil is a type of multipurpose vegetable oil and one of the most efficient oil products ever produced. Sodium Laurel Sulfate, is another name for palm oil and is widely used in the soap industry due to it’s low cost and abundance from monocrop farming practices. Global production of palm oil is primarily in the tropical regions where carbon sequestration is higher compared to other regions. The scale of deforestation for Palm oil plantations is also a leading cause of orangutan extinction.
Handsome Devil soap uses a coconut oil based cleaning agent as compared to Sodium laurel sulfate. Coconuts are mostly grown in mixed-use plantations by smaller localized farms that also grow banana, cacao, coffee. Coconut groves are often integrated into the natural landscapes to feel more natural than palm oil plantations. Coconuts can grow almost anywhere even in sand and can produce fruit for several decades. Coconuts are regarded as a renewable resource for this reason. The use of coconut based ingredient’s makes Handsome Devil the best soap for you and for the planet.
