We are Palm Oil Free

Did you know that every single Lucy Bee product is Palm Oil Free, including its derivatives.  

A big part of our ethical ethos is caring for the environment and it’s for this reason that we choose not to use palm oil or any of its derivatives in our products. 

In the skincare world this is a huge achievement as palm oil and especially its derivatives are found in so many ingredients used in skincare, and it’s not always obvious that is has been used. For example, some emulsifiers are sourced from either palm oil or coconut and the manufacturer of the emulsifier may not differentiate the source. We can confirm that no derivatives of palm oil are used in any of our products. 

 

Why have we chosen to be palm oil free? 

We have a blog here, which goes into more detail about palm oil and its environmental impact, as well as another infographic blog here.  

In short, due to an increase in demand for palm oil this has led to mass plantation of palm trees that product palm oil. For space to be made for these plantations, native forests and rainforests to these areas are destroyed, which in turn destroys the natural habitat in which wildlife & plants thrive. The unsustainable way in which forests are being cleared is damaging to the environment, wildlife and to the local communities in these areas.  

 

Lucy Bee do not use palm oil 

We have worked so hard with our manufacturers to create products that are results-driven but are also kind to the planet.   

It may take us a little longer to source ingredients, but we stand by our mission to be 100% palm oil free. 

We are so proud of our Palm Oil Free skincare, bodycare & self-tan range.
