WHY WE DON'T USE CASTOR OIL OR PALM OIL IN OUR SOAPS


Castor Oil: Although limited amounts of Castor oil itself is generally safe to use, we don't use castor oils in our products. Here's why...

In addition to the health concerns about ricin (the toxic by-product of the castor bean), the plant's surface also contains allergenic compounds that can cause permanent nerve damage to those who grow, harvest and process these plants.

This makes castor oil a human health risk. Workers suffer from harmful side effects in places like India, China and Brazil, where the crop is predominantly produced.


Palm oil:


WE WONT COMPROMISE

Cornish Vegan Soap is committed not just to the safety of our customers, but also to the producers of every ingredient we source.


We only source ingredients from producers whose practices we can verify are safe, sustainable and ethical.

Because of the high demand of castor oil, suppliers can be limited and unreliable, and we won't produce a product at the expense of the hands who harvest it's ingredients.
